which grid

Note that grid lines from the Y axis always come from the left Y axis. Even if you turned off that axis, its major tick interval controls the grid lines. It is not possible to create automatic grid lines from the right Y axis. But you can  place additional ticks or lines one at a time to give the same effect.


Special grid lines

Double-click an axis and use the Format Axis tab to place additional ticks or lines (formerly called Custom Ticks) on your graph. You can create as many grid lines anywhere on an axis.


Using a grid to align objects
