A pivot chart can help us to quickly analyze base data, but sometimes, if there is a great values’ difference between the series, the chart will be shown not beautiful and exact enough as below screenshot shown. Now I am talking about adding a secondary axis to a pivot chart in Excel to solve this problem.

    There's too many adverts on this page: "You maybe interested in this utility", "Recommended Productivity Tools", and two banner ads for "Kutools for Excel"... What's worse is that these adverts occur during the tutorial, almost as though you're trying to trick the user that they're part of the tutorial.
