Multiple Y axis ones above the others / merge graphs keeping the same X axis

Hello everyone,

I'm new to JMP so sorry if the answer is obvious : I can't find how to have a pile of graphs. I have temperature values along several days for about 20 different samples, what I want to obtain is one Y axis for each of my sample, with the same X axis. The Y axis would be the same for each sample, one above the others, so I would have 20 graphs with only one X axis : the aim is just to distinguish the trends for each sample, but keeping them close to be able to compare them.
As the difference are very subtle  can't see it while having all the curves sharing the same Y.....

Any help would be greatly appreciated, many thanks by advance !

You can make this kind of thing with Graph Builder:

(for 20 you might need a big screen though).

To do this, drag your X variable to the 'X' drop zone, then one of the Y variables to the 'Y' drop zone. Then add each of the remaining Y variables in turn, being sure to drop it 'above' the one that is already there (you should see a new, blue drop zone appear). Once you have done it once, you can save the script ('select 'Script > Save Script to Data Table') to repeat with updated data.

hi ad+

perhaps one option is to use table stack and then overlay the dots in one graph.

when staking the tables stack all the Y's. with the new table you can graph the newly created "Data" column as Y and the original x on the x axis.

then submit the "label" column to the overlay box on the corner.

best,

ron
