Hello,

i want to create a xy-diagram with two or three graphs inside.
The intervalls of the x- / y-values of the further graphs are mostly similair; and all graphs should be of the same typ. (xy-)

I remember, in Excel you can do that by adding a additional data area into the diagram. But, I cannot find any equal function in Calc.

How is that made correctly in Calc?
In the worst case: Does any body know a work around for that problem?


Cheers,

Gustav.

I hope I didn't get it wrong. I assume that you want to plot different x with different y in one chart. My data are arranged in the following way (example for 3 x-y data series) :

row
__A____ B____C____D <- column
1 x11__y11
2 x12__y12
3 x13__y13
4 x21_______y21
5 x22_______y22
6 x23_______y23
7 x31____________y31
8 x32____________y32
9 x33____________y33
.....

Select ALL and sort (column A) --> plot (xy). That's the way I do it.
Maybe you need to rearrange your data and plot it again if you want to add further data (actually I didn't try it). I wonder if there is a better solution.
Hope this helps.

Thanks Jorge!

That is exactly that what I was looking for.
