Legend of Line Types

Is there a method of adding a legend showing the line types used in a graph. I've attached a seive analysis program and want to add a legend for specd max and min and sample line types.


RE: Legend of Line Types

Point to a graph line with cursor and right-click (Series 1, for example), ADD data label, point and right-click again, FORMAT data label.

Umm. Yes. Use excel's legend feature.
Example attached.
Have I misunderstood the question?

If you want exact keystrokes, see help or at least tell us what version you're using.

(2B)+(2B)' ?

RE: Legend of Line Types

Thanks gentlemen... did all the heavy lifting... electricpete... if you had have moved the legend up, you would have completed it for me...

Again, thanks very much...
