I'd like to generate a graph showing which grandkids are getting which magazines so I can easily see when to reorder and when to move them up to the next age level. The variables are:


  • Name of magazine
  • Name of child
  • Date of subscription
  • Length of subscription (in years)

Some sample data might be:

MagazineChildStart DateLength
BabybugBilly4/01/033
BabybugSally8/15/063
BabybugSean5/03/093
BabybugSusan10/08/113
Highlights HelloBilly4/01/033
Highlights HelloSally8/15/063
Highlights HelloSean5/03/093
Highlights HelloSusan10/08/113

I've uploaded a sample graph to this Dropbox folder:

Can anyone get me pointed in the right direction for how to store the data and how to set up the graph?

Maybe just calculate the exparation date and sort by that:
