    In the attached spreadsheet you will see a very simple line graph, it shows market values spread over a number of years, I would like to differentiate between actual values (historical) and future values by perhaps changing the line colour as it goes to the projected values or making it dotted or something like that. Is that possible ?

    There is as far as I know no way to do that.

    However, I tried a little trick: add a column next to your existing Millions and copied the data in the years > 2015 into it and leaving the other values in the millionc column.
    I expanded the data source and the new series is placed over the previous one, givning the impression that the same line has another color when it in fact is a different series.
    See the returnd file, it will make more sense when you see it.
