    Default

    I have four columns of data:
    Column A is essentially the X-axis.

    Column B and C are numbers that fall within the same range

    Column D is another set of numbers that is not within the range of B and C.

    Is is possible to make a graph that would have a primary and a secondary y-axis, then plot the numbers in columns B and C using the primary y-axis and column D using the secondary y-axis?

    I can't figure out how to tell Excel which y axis goes with which variable. I know how to do it with two, but not with three.

    Thanks!

    Yes, right-click the series that you want on the secondary y-axis, choose Format Data Series... from the popup menu, and pick the Secondary axis radio button on the Axis tab.
