    How to Make list of Years noted as a date

    I have a list of years, which I want to be on the horizontal axis, so the graph just plots the other series inflation.

    Date - Inflation
    2009 -0.50%
    2008 4.00%
    2007 4.30%
    2006 3.20%
    2005 2.80%
    2004 3.00%
    2003 2.90%


    Note if the date is in format
    2000 Q1
    1999 Q1

    Excel automatically sees it is a date.

    See screenshot for how my graph looks.

    What I'll usually do, is initially graph it as a scatter chart, this puts the years on the x axis. Then I convert the chart to whatever type of chart you want. The x axis will remain in place. Does that work for you?
