    I have to do a lab report for physics, and am using numbers for the fist time. I need to make a graph with one axis for mass and one for acceleration so that the line is the force (or something like that). When i made a chart of my data it put both columns of data on one axis, with Microsoft Excel it is easy to do this, which seems very wrong since Apple is so much better :D, so i think that i am missing something blatant.

    Anyone know what to do:confused:...thanks!

    Stick with Excel, Numbers can't do this kind of graph.

    Yeah, Numbers is pretty weak when it comes to anything scientific. Here's hoping that it's just 1.0 syndrome.

    Oh, and stay away from Excel 2008 if you want to do advanced chart things, like have customizable error bars :mad:

    You could try the free NeoOffice (OpenOffice for Mac).
