 Posted: Sun Apr 22, 2012 8:42 pm    Post subject: Graph of mean values with range bars I have to create a column graph of the mean number of push ups done by males vs females, with a range bar of the highest and lowest number for each column, but I have no idea how to do it! I was given all the sets of data in a spreadsheet, without the mean. The question is, can I create a column graph of the data, and then put range bars in? Do I have to find the mean and graph that? HELP!!!

Nice work but a really ugly dynamite chart.

@essenceofinsanity
A column (bar) chart with ranges is a really bad way to display the data that you have. You can use Ken's approach but change the chart type to xy-graph to get a much better graphic
