    Graph date + time

    Hi all,

    I made a graph (see appendix) with many data points. I would like to show both the date and the time on the X axis. However, I would like to show each date once, below the time in the graph. I can't find a solution to do this. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Re: Graph date + time

    Thanks! This would be a solution indeed. However, I would like (if possible) to show each date just once in the graph, for example below the times of the particular date. So a more overlapping date. Do you know whether this is possible? I think it would give a better view, since there are so many data points.
    If this is not possible, maybe a line between each date of a different color would give a better views. Do you know whether this is possible?

    Re: Graph date + time

    I am optimistic that most things are possible, but it may not involve built in options.

    I notice that Shareez Saleem used a line chart with a text/category axis. If I were to do this, I would use an XY scatter chart. If I did not like Excel's default divisions on the x axis, I would format the axis to have 1 for the major unit and 0.25 (6 hours) for the minor unit and format the axis labels to show only day.
