How to Set X_Values to a Line Series

Dear Team,

I have a requirement where we need to set x_values (position of data point) to a line series same like how we do for a scatter chart. (chart.getNSeries().get(index).setXValues(cellName))
I could able to get it manually in excel but unable to do by code. Attaching the sample excel for your reference.X_VALUES.zip (168.3 KB)

Could you please help me in achieving this.

Java

Workbook wb = new Workbook(dirPath + "LC.xlsx");

Worksheet ws = wb.getWorksheets().get(0);

Chart ch = ws.getCharts().get(0);

Series s = ch.getNSeries().get(0);

//Proper way
s.setXValues("=Sheet1!$A$2:$A$7");

//But this will also work
s.setXValues("A2:A7");

wb.save(dirPath + "output.xlsx");

Hi Amjad,

Can you please help me to get the same functionality as you mentioned above, to set custom category axis labels to a scatter chart (SCATTER_CONNECTED_BY_LINES_WITHOUT_DATA_MARKER).

Thanks in advance for your early response.
