        string date2 = dateTimePicker1.Value.AddDays(1).ToString("dd-MM-yyyy");
        string date3 = dateTimePicker1.Value.AddDays(2).ToString("dd-MM-yyyy");
        string date4 = dateTimePicker1.Value.AddDays(3).ToString("dd-MM-yyyy");

        string cmdTextDate = "SELECT * FROM AllInOneTable WHERE Date=@Date";
        OleDbCommand commandDate = new OleDbCommand(cmdTextDate, my_con);
        commandDate.CommandText = cmdTextDate;
        commandDate.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Date", date1);
        DataSet data = new DataSet();
        OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter(commandDate);
        int a = data.Tables[0].Rows.Count;

        string cmdTextDate2 = "SELECT * FROM AllInOneTable WHERE Date=@Date";
        OleDbCommand commandDate2 = new OleDbCommand(cmdTextDate2, my_con);
        commandDate2.CommandText = cmdTextDate2;
        commandDate2.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Date", date2);
        DataSet data2 = new DataSet();
        OleDbDataAdapter da2 = new OleDbDataAdapter(commandDate2);
        int b = data2.Tables[0].Rows.Count;

        string cmdTextDate3 = "SELECT * FROM AllInOneTable W

Try clearing the series (below) then re-add the new data afterwards. Not sure if that's 100% what you want, but seems like it.

//for your code

Also on a side note - You rarely should call SELECT * FROM or do multiple calls to the database to retrieve information that can be done with a single query.

If you're using sql, look into GROUP BY and UNION keywords for sql queries. It'll allow you to condense multiple calls into one. Then separate it as you see fit, if you see the need. Linq will come in handy here.

This Example will show you an overview of what I'm talking about even if it's not contextually the same. It is a little more advanced however.
