    It is difficult to debug from a picture. What chart type are you using? What did you expect to see different from what is in the picture?

    As near as I can tell from the picture, the chart looks correct for a stacked line chart where row 52 is the first data series and row 53 is the second data series. Reading between the lines, I would guess that you did not intend to use a stacked line chart, but that you intended to use a regular line chart. My recommendation is to check your chart type and be certain you are using the correct chart type for the desired visualization.

    If you read the numbers in row 53 you will see the chart is not correctly displaying them. Since it does show row 52 correctly I don't doubt I am using the right type chart.

    As I said, it looks correct for a stacked line chart. For example, the first data point in row 52 is 0.97, and the blue line is correctly positioned at about 0.97. The first data point for row 53 is 1.0 -- stack that on top of the row 52 value 0.97 to make a total of 1.97, and that is where the red line is positioned. Scanning across rows 52 and 53, it looks like the sum of 52 and 53 is pretty close to 2.0 all the way across, which is where the red line is correctly positioned (assuming you wanted a stacked line chart).

    If you intend the red line to chart at the value in row 53 (1.0, then 0.95, and decreasing towards the right), then you would need to use a regular line chart -- not a stacked line chart.

    Since you seem convinced that a stacked line chart is the correct chart type, I am not sure what to recommend. The chart looks correct to me for how a stacked line chart would behave. Are you certain that a stacked line chart is correct for this? Are you certain you did not intend to use a regular line chart?

    OK that did it. I had chosen stacked line chart w/o knowing what they meant by stacked. thanks man

    It seems to be an easy mistake to make. Glad I could help.
