Jon Peltier says: Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at 1:59 pm Cool Blue - Leave the original line undecorated, and superimpose auxiliary series. Switch to Excel. Put the different standard deviation values for the whole series in the worksheet (a convenient place is in a parallel range adjacent to or near the X and Y values), then You can add error bars to data series in a 2-D area, bar, column, line, stock, xy (scatter), or bubble chart.

Is your Excel 2007 updated to Service Pack 2? There is no convenient tab on the Format Series dialog. Any other feedback? Claire Gummerson says: Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at 11:12 am Ahhh i see.

I have just got 2013 and its no easier and there is the usual moving the feature to a different tab just for a bit of fun. If it's the built-in one, are you sure there it doesn't begin with the leftover "={1}+" Tri says: Monday, April 18, 2011 at 10:05 am Dear Jon, Thank you so much You can add error bars to data series in a 2-D area, bar, column, line, stock, xy (scatter), or bubble chart. Excel 2011 for Mac offers real power in its chart-analysis tools, but using them requires some knowledge of the math behind the features.

Then you add the error bars, using the built-in interface or using the utility I've provided.
