If I understand your question correctly, the values in B5-B12 should be the XAxis labels, right?

If so, use that range as the source data for the chart, ie

$chart->Chart->ChartWizard({Source => $sheet->Range("B5:B12,D5:D12")};
instead of just D5:D12. I believe that the two SeriesCollection lines are the defaults, so they shouldn't be necessary. Keep the ColorIndex line though.

    Sorry to give you such a bad news, but now I've moved backwards: I've lost all the data in the chart! Is it possible to avoid the chartWizard?!?

    Update:It works! we just need a ; instead of a , in the range line.

      I am having a similar problem. I need to add multiple series to one chart and so I don't believe I can use the ChartWizard.

      Currently, I use the following code to add a series:

      This however does not set the XValues, which I try to do with the following code:
      $Range = $Sheet3->Range("C$num2:C$num1");
      $Chart->SeriesCollection($series)->XValues($Range); ;

      This results in the following error:
      Win32::OLE(0.1709) error 0x80020011: "Does not support a collection"
      in METHOD/PROPERTYGET "XValues" at ./ line 149

      Any Ideas? Thank you in advance.
