Every plot has 8 preconfigured series (and you can add, delete or rearrange series). To be displayed, serie must reference a valid range of worksheet data, otherwise it is invisible and treated as "empty". Initially all series are empty and you need to define data range in order to display curves. Data range includes following values: worksheet, first and last line, X and Y columns of the selected worksheet. If any of these values are invalid, or first line is greater than last line, data range also is invalid. Hence, all you need to plot data is to correctly set data range of the selected plot serie.
Alternatively, you can define symbolic expressions and display arbitrary functions using functional, or parametric series that doesn't require reference to the numeric data.
Use Serie Properties dialog box or Serie Manager window to work with plot series.
|Clear Series||Clear data range of current plot series|
|Add Series||Add new empty plot series|
|Move Up||Move selected series up|
|Move Down||Move selected series down|
|Rename||Rename selected serie|
|Paste Data Range||Paste data range into the current series object|
|Select Lines||Set worksheet selection to the data range of current series|
|Series ListBox||Select current serie from the list|
Sometimes you may want to hide serie without loss of its numerous visual attributes. In DM2003, you have two choices: either hide, or "clear" serie (made it empty by setting XColumn=YColumn=FirstLine=LastLine=-1. Empty series are marked by red "X" icon and not displayed.
This command selects worksheet cells referenced by the data range of the current serie. Keep in mind that in DM2003 worksheet referenced by the serie may belong to another data window (by default, all preconfigured and newly created series reference worksheet of the same window).
