Ahmed Ezzat,

I have posted an example image.  I selected the first table and created a line graph.  I then went to the second table and copied the "names" and the data.  I then when to the chart and selected paste.  That put the data from both tables on the same chart.

I would give the second table slightly different names so you can tell the lines apart.
