Multiple plots w/ multiple y scales on one chart?

I have several sets of data measuring different species concentrations. I want to make a plot of concentrations Vs exp number. Since the Y values are so different, if plot them all on one plot, some of the species looks totally flat along the bottom. You see where I'm getting?
I want to plot something like this
------------
| / //
| / /
|-----------
| / /
| / //
|-----------
| / / /
| / / /
|-----------

They will all have the same X value, being the exp index number, but with individual Y scales. I know I can plot them individually and manage to line them up but ... there's gotta be a way to handle this in a much nicer way, right?

Thanks

You can plot on a second Y axis, which may help.

Otherwise you will have to multiply/divide your source data by a scaling factor and plot that. You can use the legend for an explanation of your scaling.

so that means I can plot at most 2 Y scales on one plot? I thought of multiplying factors, but just hoping there's a built-in function to do this? Anyhow, thanks alot
