Charts using non contiguous selections Comment from Suzanne @ 1/13/2011
I guess I forgot to mention that I was working on a chart and trying to create one using non contiguous selected data.  I used the control key after making the first group selection but it did not highlight anything.  Thank you for your review.

Reply from Richard Rost:

Hmmm... I just tried it and it worked OK for me. Walk me through what you're doing - step by step - and tell me where you're having problems.

Comment from Suzanne Reichenberg @ 1/13/2011
I've tried to use the control key while choosing two different sets of data for a non-contiguous selection but it is not working for me.  Even the first group selected does not change to a highlighted set.  What might I be doing wrong?

Reply from Richard Rost:

I'd have to see what you're doing to tell you for sure, but make sure you do NOT have the CTRL key down when you start. Select your first range, THEN press and hold the CTRL key, and now select your second range. When finished, release the CTRL key and both ranges should be highlighted.
