    Second Series Values Not Plotting Correctly

    How do I get two series of values to plot on the same scale? (See image) If I select the second series and have it Plot Series on Secondary Axis it increases in size, but I want it to use the same scale (under Axis Options > Bounds) .

    As long as you have not set any properties of the secondary axis you should be able to delete.
    This would force the series on the secondary axis to use the primary scale.

    If you have made changes to secondary axis then you may need to set the min/max scale

    You must be doing something special with the chart as 2 series on 2 axis would normally just overlap each other.
    As Pepe Le Mokko suggests post example workbook

    Talking Re: Second Series Values Not Plotting Correctly

    I found out what the problem was. I didn't post the sheet because the values are pulled from another sheet. So, I just copied just the values to a blank workbook and noticed that the number that wasn't graphing properly was '27' in an unformatted state. I knew that wasn't right so I checked my reference and found I was referencing the wrong field. I corrected it and now it's graphing properly. User error. Lol.
