29.7.2 Horizontal 2 Panel Graph


Data Requirements

Select at least one Y column of values (or a range from at least one column). Ideally, select at least two Y columns of values (or a range of at least two Y columns). If there is any 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 two for this 2 panels graph:

  • if there are only one X column, this X column will be used for both two panels and all Y columns will be divided into two groups equally and plotted into these two layers against the same X data;
  • if there are two X columns, the second X column will be used as the separator to divide the Y columns into two groups, and these two groups of Y columns will be plotted into into two layers against the adjacent X data;
  • if there are more than two X columns, you are not allowed to plot such two panels graph.

Creating the Graph

Select the required data.

From the menu, select Plot > Multi-Panel/Axis : Horizontal 2 Panel.


Click the Horizontal 2 Panel button on the 2D Graphs toolbar.



PAN2HORZ.OTP (installed to the Origin program folder).


Each column of Y values plots into a separate layer. The two layers are arranged in two columns by one row.
