    I am trying to plot numbers ranging from 0.903e-19 to 2.16e-19 on the y-axis of a line graph in Numbers, but am having trouble. I can set the Max for the y-axis to 2.2e-15, but once I change it to 2.2e-16 or 2.2e-19, all of the values on my y-axis except for 0 disappear.

    Can anybody help me with this?
    I've attached the file I'm working with.

    Does anybody know how to do this? Could it be a bug in Numbers? I haven't been able to create the graph in Microsoft Excel either.

    Does anybody know of a program that could graph this data?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Your problem is not Numbers or the methods by which it does graphs. Your problem is that you do not have a clue as to how to enter data into a spreadsheet nor how to do scientific notation on a computer.

    I have redone your spreadsheet with everything entered properly. Study it well.
