I wonder if it's possible to use figures (numbers) from different sheets in one series to use for a diagram. and if it is, what sign should I use to separate the different figures?

Thanks

You can plot two ranges from the same worksheet by changing the SERIES formula to eg:

=SERIES(,,(Sheet1!$B$1:$B$5,Sheet1!$C$1:$C$5),1)

But I have not found a way to combine ranges from different worksheets. If you try to enter the formula:

=SERIES(,,(Sheet1!$B$1:$B$5,Sheet2!$C$1:$C$5),1)

Excel generates an invalid external reference error. So I think you're out of luck.

I found a "quickfix" for the problem.

I just make a new sheet that just contains of links to the other sheets, so that all information i gathered in the same sheet, and after that I can use the series as usual.
