    I just have a quick question about Numbers (iWork '09). I need to graph some supply and demand graphs for school. How would I go about doing this? Whenever I create a graph based on a chart, it just plots each row as it's own line. I can only edit the values in the Y-axis, and obviously I need to be able to work with the X-axis as well.

    Thanks.

    Update: Okay, I played around with it more and figured it out. I guess you have to graph it as a scatter plot and then choose to connect the dots, and remove the dots, rather than choose the line graph, whose icon looks just like a graph of supply and demand.

    If you are serious about your graphs, then do not use a spreadsheet. Get yourself a dedicated graphing/charting application. They vary in price over the range $0.00 to $450.00+.
