I have a list of part numbers (about 30,000) and a list of prices with them. I'm trying to construct a graph with cost along the y axis and the part numbers along the x axis so I can show a standard bell curve. Unfortunately excel seems to be conspiring against me! help please!

To show a bell curve you would need to have cost along the x (horizontal) axis and No of parts (at each price.price range) along the y axis. You also need to summarize your data so that it is in a form that excel can graph:
<pre>
Price No of Parts
£1 2
£2 5
£3 13
</pre>

etc etc
You could do this using a pivot table and then create your chart from that.

Ok I've got every part number categorised as A, B or C (A = under £100, B=£100 to £1000, C= over £1000) but I still can't get this to graph??
