I have a Google Sheet tracking data over days, logging data at different times during the day, example:

Is there any way that I can have this data represented in a chart as one continuous line tracking throughout time?

This is an example of what I'm after, having put all of the data in one column. enter image description here

    Have you thought of trying the stacked line chart? – cybernetic.nomad Aug 1 '18 at 16:20
  • Isn't the current chart essentially a stacked line chart? I am essentially wanting one continuous line/data set – physicsboy Aug 1 '18 at 16:27

What you currently have is a line chart.

For stacked line charts use:

  • I see what you mean, but the chart doesn't come out in a style I am wanting. Please see my updated question for a bit more on what I'm after... – physicsboy Aug 1 '18 at 16:41
  • Set all lines except the top most ones to "No Outline", Set the topmost one to the colour and width you want. – cybernetic.nomad Aug 1 '18 at 16:50
  • An alternative is to just create a new columns summing all the values and use that for the chart – cybernetic.nomad Aug 1 '18 at 16:51

I don't think this is possible without changing your data structure:


Chart over resulting data

Can you create a new column that has the data you want, and then chart that?

For example, add a column with the sum of the data on the right, and then chart that column.
That seems more straightforward to me and easier to understand.
