comment Creating a chart with two different scalings on the y-axis
As I imply in a comment below, I think you should allow your Y Axis to scale from 0:50000 and allow your 1000 value to appear small-it is small compared to the overall range of values, there's no sense in trying to make it more than it is.

comment Creating a chart with two different scalings on the y-axis
You may consider that the parabola is the correct visual interpretation for the log axis, so if that's a problem for correct interpretation of your chart, will any other manipulation of your Y axis (e.g. breaking it) also be subject to misinterpretation? Simply put, 1000 is a small value compared to 50000, and when graphed, its appropriate that it appears very small.

No, you can any number of categories in either/any ring. So, you could use the outer ring as a type of summary if you wanted. Just change your series data in the select data dialog box.

How do you want to treat your data that falls outside of the 1-5 range of your axis? Do you want it shown, but outside of the lines, or not shown at all?

Does this sample match what you're trying to do? If so, I'll ask the mods to undelete my now edited answer. i.stack.imgur.com/CuPz6.png

Do you have a sample chart you're trying to copy? If so, could you please post it to a file sharing site and post a link?
