    Line graph with 2 y-axis not showing correct x-axis labels

    I've got a line chart with 3 data series. One has much larger values than the others so I've put it on the secondary y-axis. However, when I do this it messes up the y-axis category labels. They are supposed to be dates running from 1st April 2020 to end of June 2020, but when I add the secondary y-axis they change and start from 1st January 1900! The chart is supposedly still looking at the same range for the labels but isn't reading the correct ones in once I put the secondary axis on.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    TIA :-)

    It is difficult to debug based solely on your text description (a sample file would help us help you). My guess is that one or more data series is not using the correct range for the horizontal category axis labels. I would pull up the Select Data dialog, select each data series, and see what each is using for the category axis labels. For any that are not using the specified range, edit the category axis range so that it is using the correct range.
