# Struggling to Create a Four Quadrant Chart in Excel?

## QI Macros Can Do It For You!

#### Draw a 4 Quadrant Graph using QI Macros

2. Select Box, Dot & Scatter > Quadrant Scatter on QI Macros menu.
3. QI Macros will do the math and draw the graph for you.

### Quadrant & scatter charts compare the relationship between two variables

The difference is the placement of the Y axis in relationship to the X axis.
Both of these charts are easy to create using QI Macros add-in for Excel.

### Scatter Diagram   Then, select "Box, Dot & Scatter Plot" > Quadrant Scatter Next, you will be asked to input the point at which the Y-Axis crosses the X-Axis and the X-Axis Crosses the Y-Axis - this creates your quadrant. Note that we also identify potential crossings for you:  A four Quadrant Chart will then be created: ### You can also manually convert a scatter plot to a four-quadrant graph

1. First, delete the trend line from your scatter diagram. Right click on the X-axis, select Format Axis Now change the value where you want the vertical Y-axis to cross the X-axis. In this example, we chose 45. Right click on the Y-axis, select Format Axis Now change the value where you want the horizontal X-axis to cross the Y-axis. In this example, we chose 50. 4. Once you have updated both the X and Y Axis Values, you should have a XY Scatter Diagram with Four Quadrants! QI Macros contains a Quadrant chart template too!
