How can I make a graph with this data:

Club    distance    club speed
9 iron  85.8            71.7
9 iron  89.8            68.6
9 iron  85.2            69
5 iron  132.5           73.6
5 iron  131.3           74.8
5 iron  146.5           74.2
Driver  188             84.6
Driver  196.1           85.3
Driver  186.6           85.4

So that the Distance is on the Y-axis and the Speed is on the X-axis?

Which version of excel are you using? And how do you want to include the information as to which club you're using? –  SaintWacko Dec 16 '11 at 19:02

What have you tried? –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Dec 16 '11 at 20:27
    
I want each club 9 iron, 5 iron and driver to have 1 continuous line over speed by distance. –  에이바 Dec 19 '11 at 15:18

Okay, to make a line graph of that information, click Insert at the top to bring up the Insert ribbon. Select the Distance data, then on the Insert ribbon, click on the Line button and choose the one you want, probably the first one. The chart should appear. Then, right click on the chart and choose Select Data. In the window that appears, click Edit on the right side under the heading Horizontal (Category) Axis Labels. Another box will pop up. Select your Speed data and press OK, then press OK again on the Select Data Source window, and your graph should be set up.

That makes a graph like this: gyazo.com/bea897b1e0fe6404507b8ae1f4d89e7e –  에이바 Dec 19 '11 at 15:17
    
Looks like it created a separate series for each data point. Right click and edit data again, then on the left, delete all the series except one. Select that one, click edit, then select your Distance data and hit OK. –  SaintWacko Dec 19 '11 at 16:15

Insert - scatter plot and clear it out. Right click select data - add and for each point have series name = club series x values = speed and series y values = distance and plot each point as a series
