Default I cant find my clustered column line template?

I am trying to create a clustered column graph with an average line running horizontally through it, displaying the average value of the totals of column D. As my spreadsheet shows, I am able to create the date vs totals ok, but I canít get the average line. In theory the average line (currently 68 as per cell H3), so there should be a horizontal line running through this graph at 68. I think to do this I need to insert a clustered column-line template, but I canít find this option in the insert-recommended charts-all charts (see screen snapshot). I am using excel 2013 and as far as I know, I am supposed to have the clustered column-line template, but I canít find it! Am I overlooking something here? Please advise. Many thanks

Okay it might be cheating and i am sure there is a proper way of doing it, but....

I don't know why it would be cheating, it does seem to work, but I need to create extra columns on the worksheet for average, and if I hide the column the graph won't work. What if i wanted to modify my graph slightly, and show a goal line along with the average. Lets say the goal was 100, how can I have the graph display a horizontal line across it at the totals 100 value, along with my average marker, the horizontal line at about 68? Thanks

I assumme there is an offical way of doing it, but i only know this way and while it works there are some limitations.

so a further cheat...

Put the data on sheet2, base your graph with a target on sheet 2 then just link the bits you want to show on sheet1

see attached

let me know if its what you were after

Default Clustered column and line graph

Ok, well the graph you created is precisely what I wanted my graph to look like, but how did you select the cells on 2 different tabs to create this graph? If I select a4 to a15,b4-b15, e4-e15 on tab 1, and also select a1 to a13, b1-b13, and f1-f13 on tab 2, and then try and insert a graph, I am not given the option to create a clustered column and line graph, it only lets me make a clustered column graph,so maybe I am selecting the wrong cell ranges for my graph? Thanks

I think I got it: If I right click on the graph and then click on select data, and then use the add function, I can add a range of cells to a new axis and give it a title. You certainly know your excel Purfleet, I hope you are getting paid for all this free advice.
