I need to create a graph in Excel that takes the values from a table that describes the products with words like "low", "middle low", "middle high", "high"; and I need that on the graph appear those values.
There is a way to do that?

Thanks in advace


Example of data:

**Values**        **Rank**   
Price             Low        
Design            High
Technology        High
Robustness        Med-high
Communication     Med-low

And I'd like that on the graph appers just in this form; with thev alues on the x-axis and the ranks on y-axis.

I would map these to a hidden field, and assign values


Then use the hidden values as your graph items,

Almost there.. I need that the value you putted on x was on y, and to put on x some things to evaluate (as: price, design, communication, ecc). In other words: the values high, low, medium and med-high have to do the work that is done by the graduated scale that is on y-axis. – Overflowh May 4 '13 at 18:33
Can you pose some sample data then? Put it in your question. – AthomSfere May 4 '13 at 18:42
