In Excel 2010, how do I graph a specific point on a graph that already has a line graphed on it. This specific point is from a different data set and does not fall on the line.

Could you be a little more specific? What have you tried? – CharlieRB Dec 10 '12 at 14:00
This may help: – Simon Dec 10 '12 at 14:05
@Simon - not really, it seems little more helpful than "ask elsewhere". – pnuts Dec 11 '12 at 13:39
@pnuts Its certainly helped me alot with excel, and i would never have known about it, had it not been recommended to me by someone else – Simon Dec 11 '12 at 13:43
@Simon Questioners are encouraged to be specific (eg faq) so I would think a corollary is “avoid answering with an ‘entire book’ (whether or not via a link)”. Obviously Comments may not be answers but my impression is the intent is to keep things specific. Not to deprive you of your opinion, I know I would not appreciate well-meant advice (answer or comment) to my question if that was “Read Using SAP R/3” (1,000+ turgid pages)! – pnuts Dec 11 '12 at 14:39

A "quick fix" might be simply to overlay a marker using Insert, Shapes (green diamond in example). Better would be to use a second "series" of data (brown square in example) so its position would adjust appropriately in response to changes in either axis:
