    Data series disappearing (incl. custom label and error bars) in Scatter Plot and Bar Plot

    Hi Forum, I have created some plots where I use custom axis labels in a bar chart and custom data labels dynamic scatter plot in which I plot time-lines horizontally with several independent processes on the y-axis, and their key milestones on the y-axis. The scatter plot flexibly resets all axes based on the range of the data plotted, by drawing all axes and axes labels and tick-marks with data points and error bars (imagine each tick mark to be a data point). I do this, as I want to force the x-axis to be organized in quarters and the y-axis should include the process names.

    This works perfectly on my machine (running Windows 10 and Office 365). When I open it on another machine, the custom-made axes, but not the actual data points plotted disappear. My client is Office 2016.

    (Labels covered up as they include sensitive information)


    Any ideas why the axes are disappearing and anything that could be done about it?

    I know that custom labels do not exist in all versions of Office, but to my knowledge these issues are limited to Office 2010.



    Thank you for your help!

    Re: Scatter plot: Data series disappearing (incl. custom label and error bars)

    I don't know that we can do much to debug this with only a picture. Can you fake some dummy data and upload a sample file to the forum so we can see exactly how you are creating the axes and see if we can replicate the behavior?

    [EDIT] I uploaded an example file and attached it to the original post.
