You use the wrong chart type. You have to select XY chart instead of

Perfect! That fixed it. However, two things:

1) Given that it's possible to add an x-axis to a line
   chart, it's not clear to an uninitiated user that x-axes
   don't belong in line charts. Does anyone else find this
   UI confusing?

2) Within the tree control for xy-charts, I expected the
   x-axis field (the field where one enters x-axis data) to
   be under Graph -> Chart1 -> X-Axis1. Yet it's under Graph
   -> PlotXY1 -> Series1. Again, doesn't this strike anyone
   as a counterintuitive UI?

I might comment more generally that tree controls are hard
for a lot of people to grasp, and that they don't seem to
belong here especially well. But that's more debatable.

Thanks for everyone's prompt help.
