Here is what I am trying to do:

I need to have a graph that has number of squares completed on the y axis, the week beginning on the x axis. Now here's my dilemma. I need to have a goal line grow constantly with each week AND to have my productivity line change colors if the production drops below the goal.

Also, if anyone knows how to integrate a % complete progress bar chart into this as well that would be greatly appreciated.

Here is sample info:

Week Squares produced Goal (they get bigger by 2.58 for each week)
8/2/2010 0 2.58
8/9/2010 2.51 5.16
8/16/2010 0 7.74
8/23/2010 2.51 10.32

With this example you can see that we are below the goal of 10.32 if you add up the (2) 2.51's....so I would want that one color.....and if we exceed the goal than I want that part of the line another color.

and so on.....

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks but I have been to that site and can't make heads or tails of it. Can anyone simplify it for me. I am pretty good at excel but this is puzzling me.

the formatting on this posting had originally grouped all my numbers together, so I put dashes in between so it's easier to read.
