How can we improve Excel for Windows (Desktop Application)?

Multiple y axes on xy charts

Right now, xy charts only supports a primary and a secondary Y axis. It would be great if we would be able to draw multiple lines with different scales, each one with its own Y axis. And when I say multiple, I mean more than just 2, as it is supported right now.

Attached an example with 4 Y axis.

        It's bad enough to have two axes with different scales on the same chart. You cannot compare anything. Terrible idea!!!

        I have used other charting software that allows this, seems Excel should too. Good idea.

        Great idea -- I was about to post the same thing but found your suggestion was here already.
        I agree wholeheartedly.
