Box Plot "New Series" - xl Axis?

Discussion created by snowsoc11 on May 9, 2012
Hello! I am trying to make two box plots of ecological data from 2 different regions. I created the first box plot, then went to "New Series" to add the second data column so I can visually compared the distribution differences in the two areas. However, I cannot figure out how to make the horizontal axis correct. The x label field will not let me select anything, I am not sure how to restructure my data or what I am missing etc to allow me to alter it. Right now, it reads the first series as 0, and the next as 1, with a huge gap in between. How to I make the horizontal access not numerical but simply label it, or how am I able to alter the x label column? I have attached what I am trying to explain. Any help it much appreciated.
