    Excel 15.39, Horizontal and Vertical error bars.

    Hello!
    Excel won't let me have vertical and horizontal error bars. Just vertical ones. I added vertical error bars, and they're nice, but I can't add horizontal ones too. I'm using a basic XY scatter plot with different sets of points. If someone could give me hand, that'd be great.

    I selected a data series, went to Chart tools -> Layout -> Error bars -> Error bars with percent, and both vertical and horizontal error bars appeared on the data series. I'm using 2007, so I don't know where those commands are in your version. This help file should explain where: https://support.office.com/en-us/art...5-864049a145f0 I am not able to replicate the issue in my older version of Excel, so I am not sure why your version is not allowing you to add both horizontal and vertical error bars.

    Hi,

    If you remove the error bars you have and then apply percentage error bars, it should default to both directions. You can then easily reformat them to use the values you want.
