I have a bunch of CSV data imported in Excel: tuples are Timestamp, Type, Type Count. I'd like to plot multiple per-type line graphs but Excel keeps choking on me; can anyone suggest how should I order the columns?

Ok ok... found it: 1. make pivot out of tuple, timestamp on Row, Type on Column, Count on Value 2. change summarize-by method on value field from - the (brain dead) default - count to sum 3. plot chart as wished –  Eddy Oct 31 '11 at 13:40
    
You should put up your solution as an answer to your own question; other people might find it useful too. :) –  Ellesa Oct 31 '11 at 13:43
