Mike, the problem is that when I double click on the chart and I right
click, none of the options is "Data Ranges". The closest I can come is
"Data Table.." This is what has been frustrating me. I wonder if it
would help to re-install LO as there may have been some sort of
corruption during my last install. I am using version 18.104.22.168 on Win 7 Pro.

"Opens the Data Table dialog where you can edit the chart data.
The Data Table dialog is not available if you insert a chart that is
based on a Calc sheet or on a Writer table."

different menus depending on what's been clicked (background, grid,
point, trend line), but they /all/ finish with chart type, data ranges,
Do you have/can you borrow another machine you can run this on? IMO if
you seriously think the installation is corrupted, reinstalling might be
a good plan; but try moving your profile to one side first - I gather
resetting that can cure a number of ills.
(BTW, it's almost always best to follow up to the list, rather than to
any individual. At the very least, you get the benefit of the collected
wisdom, while others may benefit from any discussion.)
