A Bit of My Personal Finance History

Here is a chart of my net worth reported via the Net Worth Over Time report in MS Money:

The months of 7/02 , 7/03, 9/03 are inaccurate because I purchased a 3 bedroom home in 7/02, refinanced the 1st mortgage in 7/03, then refinanced the 2nd mortgage in 9/03 and for some reason I have not gotten around to figuring out how to prevent those transactions from throwing those months out of whack.

I like this chart because overall it shows a very consistent grow with increases in net worth just about every month since I started working in 8/2001. My net worth has grown tenfold over the past 4 years to roughly $180k as of 8/2005. However it is pretty linear - I of course had hoped grow would be more exponential :-).

I have been trying to figure out how to make a chart like that in excel with absolutely no luck whatsoever.
