User (Legacy) Posted December 19, 2002 Report Share Posted December 19, 2002 As an example, assume 2 series in a Lines chart. Series(0) has 10 points, and Series(1) has 5 points. Since each series must have the same number of points, Series(1) must have, in this example, 5 points set to CHART_HIDDEN so that only the 5 real data points show and the other 5 points in the series are blank. However, when this is done, the line no longer is drawn thru the 5 real data points. I have not figured out a way to draw the line and keep the blank data at the same time. One suggestion was to replace the CHART_HIDDEN points with a point calculated as the average of the previous and next point. This indeed allows the line to be drawn, but it puts a made-up data point where there really is no data. Anyone have any clues how to solve this?

Software FX Posted December 20, 2002 Report Share Posted December 20, 2002 Dear Scot, Do you mean that both lines should have the same "length" ? if so, you need to create an XY chart, otherwise Chart FX has no way of knowing that you want to "spread" those points apart. In an XY chart, you can assign X-Values to each individual point, this allows you to control the distance between them regardless of the number of points and independently of other series. You can still use CHART_HIDDEN to hide points at the end of the shorter series. -- FP Software FX Support "Scott Van Verst" <scott.vanverst@doh.wa.gov> wrote in message news:#9oPpJ6pCHA.1552@webserver1.softwarefx.com... > As an example, assume 2 series in a Lines chart.
