Use text descriptors as Y axis units

    Hi there!

    I use a set of text labels (22 of them) starting from 'A' and endin
    with 'V' that are equivalent to a numerical value where A=0, B=1, C=2..
    and V=21.

    I really want to have these text descriptors as my Y axis values an
    seeing as they are equally spaced, I would have thought there was a wa
    to do it.

    A typical graph I would need plotting would be a stacked graph whereb
    the X axis is a series of objects (i.e. cities, people's names etc.) an
    the Y axis is the series above, with the bars being comprised of a
    initial Y value plus a smaller value that 'sits on top'.

    Is this at all possible?

    Many thanks in advance!

    P.S. I have looked at PeltierTech's Arbitrary Axis webpage but
    couldn't seem to get that to work.
