How do I post text-string dates along the x-axis instead of the excel_date
position values?

I would like to plot a time-series of chemical values changing with time
The first column is the internal date from excel.  This should be the x-axis
position of a graph
of the plotted data.

The second column is a text-string of date.  This should be what is posted
(instead of the excel_date).
The third column is the chemical data and this should be the position of a
point on the y-axis.
A line needs to connect the points but should break at the NA.

36395        23-Aug-99        4.9
