    Hi all.
    I need to draw a surface chart in excel, but I'd like to achieve 3 different layer in THE SAME chart. Basically I'm trying to show 3 sets of data on the same chart. Is there a way to do this?
    I've been googling but can't find any help.

    Thanks

    I'm not quite sure of what you're asking. An example data set would probably help clarify the specifics.

    Do you have to use excel? There are some progs out there that make 3D charts/graphs.

    This is specifically for excel-

    Hello,
    Excel can handle them. But even better, try OpenOffice.
    But if you want 3D graphs, I suggest you try FreeMat.
