    Connecting the dots: X, Y Coordinates

    Catherine Denmeade

      I have a data file that contains a series of X and Y coordinates that gives me a 'profile' - when I graph this, I want to see a line or perhaps an area chart (not a series of dots), but I can't work out how to make this happen.

       

      The attached file has two sets of coordinates for 'axle 2' - one for the left side and one for the right side. You can see on sheet 1, I've plotted things so I get the right shape, but I only get dots rather than a line. I've tried a few things, but I'm very new to Tableau and I'm probably just missing something really obvious!

       

      Note - the dimension called 'point' is basically the order in which the points should plot, if I remove it from the graph it gives me some crazy things.

       

      What am I missing??

       

      Thanks!
