Hello,

I need to add a secondary "y" axis in order to show a different scale for a trend line. In the previous version, you would just click on "custom charts", add a secondary "y" line and move the data to the new axis. Does anybody know how to do this in Vista? I can't find anything remotely similar :-(
Thank you!

Ah!
Found it.
In a chart, click the data series that you want to plot along a secondary vertical axis, or do the following to select the data series from a list of chart elements:
Click the chart.
This displays the Chart Tools, adding the Design, Layout, and Format tabs.

On the Format tab, in the Current Selection group, click the arrow next to the Chart Elements box, and then click the data series that you want to plot along a secondary vertical axis.

On the Format tab, in the Current Selection group, click Format Selection.
Click Series Options if it's not selected, and then under Plot Series On, click Secondary Axis and then click Close.
On the Layout tab, in the Axes group, click Axes.
Click Secondary Vertical Axis, and then click the display option that you want.
Tip To help distinguish the secondary axis, you can change the chart type for just one data series. For example, you can change one data series to a line chart.
