I have data in the following format, where each label defines a row of data:

label1   x1 y1

label1   x2 y2

label1   x3 y3

label2   x1 y1

label2   x2 y2

label2   x3 y3

This is a very large data set, so selecting each range and adding it to the plot is out. Is there any way to plot it?

Does each cell actually contain "x" and "y"? Or are there column headings? – CharlieRB Dec 16 '11 at 15:34
perhaps I should have used values instead. Each cell labeled x*, y* contains a numeric value – Noel Dec 16 '11 at 16:22
I'd recommend you consider removing the "x" or "y" in each cell and add headings. It will make it a lot easier to use the data the way you like. – CharlieRB Dec 16 '11 at 16:56

This known Excel Add-In has that functionality

It has a Ribbon so its esy to use in Excel 2007+
