    I want to graphs "# of apps." and "Premium $" on the same graph in a trend format. My # of apps will be between 1000-2000 each month while my "Premium $" will be between $1,000,000 and $2,000,000 each month. Is there a way to place this data together in a line graph where the scale for the "apps" will be on the lefthand side and the scale for the "Premium$" would be on the right hand side? Please help if you can.
    Thanks,
    billwcsi

    Plot your two series like a normal graph.
    right click one of the data series in the graph and choose Format Data Series. Choose Axis Tab and check plot on secondary axis. format as needed

    Alternately, while creating your chart at Step 1 of 4 in the Chart Wizard click on the "Custom Types" tab, scroll down the list of chart types, and choose the "Lines on 2 Axes" entry. Note: Don't be fooled by the graphic (line-column chart) displayed next to this selection -- this is really (and exclusively) a line chart.
