    Excel connects lines in the order they are entered in the spreadsheet. Picture a pen on paper starting at the first point in the table, draw a line to the 2nd point, draw a line to the 3rd point, and so on. In order to change the order the data are connected in the plot, you need to reorder the data in the spreadsheet. Perhaps you will get what you want if you sort your data in order of increasing (or decreasing) x.
