    I suspect that you mean a combination Line-Column chart. See the Excel Help topic for "Combination charts for showing mixed data" for an illustration. As for creating the chart I recommend that you consult the Excel Help topic for "Create a chart" and use the Chart Wizard as a step-by-step guide.

    If you create the chart as one type , then highlight the data series which you want to be of a different type, click chart type and then from the list, you can select the second type of chart you want.

    I think this only works with 2D charts, i.e. you cannot have a line chart over a 3D column chart - not with Excel 97 anyway
