overlapping scatter

I have 4 columns: HISTORICAL_LOAD, SIMULATED_LOAD, TEMP, EVENTDATE. Every row has a unique EVENTDATE. I would like to put HISTORICAL_LOAD and SIMULATED_LOAD on the Y axis and TEMP on the X axis and EVENTDATE in details to make a scatter plot of weather temperature versus historical electrical demand and weather temperature versus simulated electrical demand. I know I could do this by making my code reorganizing the table so that all demand data is in one column and having another column as an indicator of whether the current row is simulated or historical data or not, but I would like to avoid this since this would mean doubling the size of the table that I must insert into the database, which takes alot of time.

@domfj

You could do that in Power Query as well, the table in your database doesn't have to be reorganized.
