XY and Multi-Profile Scatter-Line Charts

XY Scatter-Line Combination Charts

  • XY scatter-line combination charts* display data points representing groups of data objects that are connected along the sorted values of X- or Y-axis.
  • * Why Combining XY scatter and Line Chart Properties?

    • In an XY scatter chart, the data points represent groups of data objects that are plotted in the pipeline order (i.e., the order they are stored in the worksheet)
    • In a line chart, the data points represent variables plotted along the sorted values of the Y- or X-axis.
    • Combination graph types enable plotting a line chart in which the data points represent groups of data objects.
