How do I change/customize error bar directions

You can completely customize the error bar directions for different curves. For example, if you have a graph with overlapping error bars:

You can enter error bar direction values for each curve in adjacent columns, and then select the first column for your error bar directions.

1. For example, for the above graph the first two data points are fine, but for the rest we want the lower error bars for the first curve, and upper error bars for the second curve.

2. In a data column, type a "b" for each data point where you want both error bars, an "n" for where you want negative direction error bars, and a "p" for where you want positive direction error bars. You could also type a "t" for toward zero, or an "f" for from zero.

3. Select the highlighted worksheet cell(s), then choose the Format menu Cells command. Select the Type of cell to be Text, then click OK. This converts the number to text characters; you can tell this if the alignment of the cell changes to be left aligned.

4. Now, the data point is no longer plotted, and if you perform additional statistics on the graph, the data point will also be ignored.
