    Stock chart - combo of line and bar chart

    Hello all, this is my first post, I hope someone can help me, my thanks in advance for reading.

    I would like to create a chart with a similar concept to the typical stock chart you see on google finance - eg http://tinyurl.com/2fp5dnq (note, this is completely different to what a stock chart is represented as by excel - eg candlestick chart)

    I would like to have data represented by multiple lines in addition to probably just one bar chart at the bottom. The same way line=price and bar=volume on the chart above.

    I am surprised this functionality is not available in Excel 2007 or 2010. Anyway...

    I have attached a screen shot of how I would like it to look.

    Appreciate any help. Thanks.....Callum

    Hello,

    create a chart with your prices in different series as line charts. Add a series for the volume. Format it to be on the secondary axis and set it to column chart. Then adjust the maximum value of the secondary Y axis to a high number, so the columns will shrink to sit below the lines.

    See attached.

    cheers, teylyn
