How to enter X and Y coordinates for a scatter chart? Edited


Im trying to create a scatter chart, but the {chart macro will not recognize values in different columns as X and Y, and plots the values in the same axis.

Unless i substitute the cell that says "Importance on project" with a X value, but this would force me to recreate the chart in table form essentially, is there ANY way to just say x=n; y=n1?Example.PNG

Hi @João Rocha ,

There is information on how to configure the scatter chart here:

Hope this helps,


Hi Scott,

thanks for the answer, but this article does not explain how to solve my problem.

I entered which columns I want to use, one is used for labels "Ex-1" and "Ex-2" but the following ones are both entered in the Y axis instead of being split.

@João Rocha did you ever figure this out?

I'm truggling with the same issue, would like to create a stakeholder radar in Confluence, but there seems to be no way to define which column is to be used for either X or Y.

Hi @Richard Reijmers , 

at the time I left this assignment there was no solution using just Confluence.

What was on the table, was trying the "Table Filter and Charts for Confluence" plug in, but I was never given permission to try it, so I dont know if it will solve the promblem.

Sorry I couldn`t be of more help.

You can play with it on the demo site: feel free to create and edit pages there.

Hi @João Rocha

You can try to use Chart from Table macro to build a line or scatter chart .
