If the two series have different units or their magnitudes are drastically different, you will probably want to change the Y-axis position for one of the series, which defaults to the left for all series. To change an axis, select the “EDIT LINE” drop-down menu and select the line (series) you want to edit. Next, click “FORMAT” tab (to the right of the “ADD LINE” tab). By “Y-Axis position,” select “Right” to adjust the Y-axis position.
