29.7.4 9 Panel Graph

Data Requirements

Select at least one Y column of values (or a range from at least one column). Ideally, select nine or more columns of values (or a range of nine or more Y columns). If there is an associated X column, X column supplies X values; otherwise, sampling interval of the Y column or row number is used.

Please note, the number of X columns should not be more than nine for this 9 panels graph:

  • if there are only one X column, this X column will be used for all panels and all Y columns will be arranged into these nine layers against the same X data; The plot arrangement rule is to plot all Y columns one by one into the layer in order and cyclically.
  • if there are more than two X columns, the X columns will be used as the separator to divide the Y columns into groups, and these groups of Y columns will be plotted into into the layers in order, against the adjacent X data;
  • if there are more than nine X columns, you are not allowed to plot such nine panels graph.
