Example spreadsheet
Published spreadsheet

What am I doing wrong?

I know it's late, but I figure this will be useful for future searchers.

The answer seems to be that you need to create an intermediate sheet with both sets of values. The intermediate sheet ("combined data") has two cells with formulas:


The chart uses the following as its data:

'combined data'!D1:E14, 'combined data'!B1:B8

I have created a spreadsheet for you to look at:

Multisheet chart spreadsheet

and a published chart
