Hi,

I want to compare same component of two stacked bars and am using the "series line" to reinforce this comparison. However I want to compare proportion for just one component and thus want connecting lines for only that part. However when i click on "series line" in the "options" tab all series line are showed. How can I show only for one of the data series?

Thanks!

Hi

Select the relevant data series, right click, chart type and select line graph.

Hi

Can you give an example of how your data is set up, and what data goes to what part of the graph? My reading of the post was that the data for the line portion was separate from the stack part.
