    XY Scatter Chart - Line format problem

    Hey guys.

    Is it possible in Excel 2007 to get a chart where the line looks like the line in the picture attached? That particular chart was made in Excel 2003.
    I have a list of x and y co-ordinates that I am using as data series but all I can get is a smooth line connecting the points.

    Any help is appreciated. I have been trying to get this to work for hours.

    uncheck the plot smooth line option on the Format data series dialog.

    If you have a true xy-scatter chart and each point is defined xl2007 chart will the steps in the line.

    Hello,

    What's your data? For straight lines like this, you will need suitable data for the data points.

    See attached.
