How to Plot Multiple Lines in Excel

In this tutorial, you will learn to plot multiple lines in Excel.

In a normal line graph, there will only be one line. However, if you want to display multiple data sets in the same graph, you can plot multiple lines to achieve this.

Once you are ready, we can get started by using real-life scenarios to help you understand how to plot multiple lines in Excel.

Plot Multiple Lines in a Chart

Before we begin we will need a group of data to be used to create the chart to plot multiple lines.

You can easily plot multiple lines in a chart by compiling all similar kinds of data into one data group. Make sure your group of data is displayed in a clean and tidy manner. This will help us to create the line chart easily.

Step 2

Step 5

Once you are done editing and customizing the multiple-line line chart, it will look something like this.
