    Scatter Plot Graph not showing correct result

    Hello,

    I have a problem with a scatter plot graph.

    In the attached file I have created two graphs. I want the Sales on the Y axis and the EBITDAx on the X axis.

    In the graph with the Swedish companies, it seems that there are a large amount of companies 100 - 400 in EBITDAx when looking at the scatter plot. But when I look closer at the data set only ca 10 companies have more than 50x. It seems that the graph is not portrayer what I want.

    Can anyone help me here?

    /Peter

    You data contains information that excel thinks is text. Once a scatter chart detects textual values the X values are ignored and a simple sequential index is used for the X points.

    You need to clean the cells that appear to be blank.
