Line and legend display

I'm sure this question has been asked and answered at some point, but I

haven't been able to find a post on it. Here is my question. If you look

at the accompanying image, you'll understand more clearly what I am asking

about. Currently I have a graph with one line overlapping another.

Ideally, I would like to move away from overlapping and start the second

line where the first one left off. Also, in the legend, I would like to

display only the information for each line as follows:

Example of what I have now in the legend:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

x x x x x x x x x x

y y y y y y y y y y

What I would like:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

x x x

y y y y y y y

Please help me out

A few questions:

1) When you say "a line overlapping another" do you mean you have two data

series with the same or similar Y values ?

2) What do you mean by "where the first one left off"

I couldn't understand what you need by your posting , a bitmap with what you

get and what you want to get would help.

Answers to question:

1.) Yes. But I don't want to do this. The reason I have two lines with the

same Y values(up until a certain x value) is because I don't know how to

start a line in the middle of the graph...where the first line stops.

Basically I would like to know how to start a second line in the middle of

the graph, rather than the beginning.

2.) The first line I would like to draw from x = 0 up until x = 7 (for

example). The second line I would like to draw from x > 7. I would like to

display the legend in a similar manner.

Here is a jpg of what I have, and what I would like. Please notice the

legend as well:

Using X/Y values, you can assign ANY X-Vale to the first point. So the

second series can start anywhere. If one of the series is shorter than the

other, just fill out the space at the end with CHART_HIDDEN as the value.

I did not get the JPEG but I think I understand now. If this is not what you

are looking for, please post the JPEG

Sorry. I now see the JPEG,. Another way of achieving this is without using

X-Values is by using CHART_HIDDEN.

You can fill out the beginning of your yellow series as well as the end of

the blue series with CHART_HIDDEN as the value.

You can try both approaches and see which one you like better.
