Hi :)

Thanks for your time and replies.
I could stop fighting calc to show me the chart as a single worksheet!

I was charting the stock market data (available in daily doses to be bunched neatly in weekly, 
monthly, quarterly, yearly batches) in candlestick form.
Both Excel and Calc do not allow any other lines on the candlestick charts (moving averages, e.g.).
It robs the ease of analysis (and make me dependent on some websites that offer it - currently for 
free :) but I never liked the dependence)

I read somewhere* what Shakespeare wrote of vaulting ambition :)
Since, I have no spur to prick my intent, as of today I can't start vaulting onto tweaking CALC 
source code to add a new chart type.

But, it would be fun and a taste + test of the Linux promise of free(dom)!
Hope I reach the promised land one day.

Any pointers are welcome.

again, thanks for your time,
Viral Orpe

I once used a charting program (chartmaster) that allowed adding of series once the chart was first defined. Each time you added a series you could define the presentation (line, bar, x-y, scatter). This way a chart could be made up of as many types as desired. If you wanted a straight line across your chart you just defined a 2 point xy series as line type. You could add series from different columns and different files. This was a proper charting program and not a graphical representation of some selected spreadsheet data.
