How to add drop lines in an Excel line chart?
By default, the horizontal gridlines are added automatically to help us read values in charts. Actually, we can also manually add drop lines to connect the data points and their X axis values in the chart. Here is the tutorial.

Click the chart to activate the Chart Tools, and then click Design > Add Chart Element > Lines > Drop Lines. See screenshot:
