# 2 Series Chart For Different Time Periods

Oct 24, 2007

I am trying to plot two data series in one chart. The first series has monthly corn prices for last 10 years (~130 data points). The second series has bimonthly chicken prices over the last 10 years ( ~72 points). How can I plot them together?
The bi-monthly periods for the second series do not exactly coincide with calender months ( e.g. Aug 19 to Oct 13, 2007). As a result, I can not adjust the points to match with calender months.

## Excel 2007 :: Calculate Time By Time Periods Splitting Productivity?

Mar 8, 2014

production01.png

I am trying to figure a way to search for a cell that has a specific date and time range. There are several cell titles pending on the activity. I want to find a cell that has a time ** 7:30-15:30 , 15:31-17:30, 17:31-20:30. The end result is to calculate the activity between those time periods based on the data cells.

Example

If the date searched time field ** the activity ranges is 1635 I need to split the time and credit the activity time in the 730-1530 time and the rest on the 15:31-17:30 time

I have been able to do it on a single labor group based on time alone, but when I try to add the DATE to it my numbers go null. Eventually i will need to add 11 labor groups daily for weeks at a time .

## Count Number Of Full Time Periods Within A Time Period

Nov 18, 2008

I have thousands of timestamps that have a start & end date and time in 2 separate columns. (one named start and one named end...)

I also have numerous set time periods that i'm interested in.. (about a dozen or so)

for example 01/01/2008 - 05/01/2008, 07:30:00 - 10:00:00

What i need is to be able to count the number of times the full time period i am interested (07:30:00 - 10:00:00) in falls in between the thousands of start and end timestamps i have. The time periods must also fall within the date range specifed.

So if my timestamps were
Start: 01/01/2008 06:30:00 & End: 02/01/2008 11:00:00, based on the set time period above, there would be a count of 2

and if my timestamps were
Start: 01/01/2008 07:05:00 & End: 02/01/2008 09:00:00 there would be a count of zero as there is not a full uninterupted timeperiod 07:00:00 - 10:00:00 between these timestamps.

and if my timestamps were:
Start 01/01/2007 07:00:00 & End 02/01/2007 10:00:00 the count would be zer as this is a year early!

## 200 Series But Get (The Maximum Number Of Series Per Chart Is 255) Error Message

Aug 4, 2014

I run a large simulation experiment. I have a loop plotting data in excel of a user defined area. Because of the limit of 255 series I have allowed a maximum of 250 simulations (they all need to be plotted). But the length of each simulation is free. I know there is a limit of 32.000 data points in a graph and I have this as a condition too.

If I set the data range to 100 columns and 3000 rows the graph is produced when I plot by columns. (code below)

But if I set the data range to 250 columns and 1000 rows I get the above mentioned error message. Even though I only have 250 series.

After the data is plotted it is the code below that gets the error:

## Line Chart - Remove Series Code But What If No Series Exists?

Dec 22, 2011

I have the following code:

Sub Macro5()
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 243").Activate
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 243").Activate
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Delete
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(2).Delete
End Sub

However, if there is no SereisCollection(1) actually present in the chart I get an error. How can I work around this? I will need an IF statement I assume, just not sure what it will look like.

## Show Chart Data Series Labels On All Series. 2007

May 31, 2008

I just recently installed Excel 2007 and I would like to know if it's possible to change all data points of a chart at the same time. In Excel 2003, I would normally hold down shift while clicking on each of the data points to make a global change. However, it appears I cannot do that in 2007.

I would like to display each data point's series name. When I go to Layout on the Excel Ribbon, and click on "Data Labels", and click on "More Data Label Options", the actual Y-axis values are shown for each data point. However, I do not want this - I actually only want the Series Name, but when I uncheck "Value" and check "Series Name" instead (under "Label Contains"), it only changes it for one of the series. Is there a better way, instead of going through each and every single series to make this change?

## Color Pivot Chart Series Dependant On Series Name

Jun 24, 2008

I have a list of data on one sheet and a 'reports' page on another sheet. The reports page has several pivot tables and a pivot chart. I want the pivot chart to format the bars on the chart relevant to the series name. The series names are "R" "A" amd "G" for Red Amber and Green respectively, I want the chart to change the colour of the series so that it is the correct colour ie. "R" would be coloured Red, "A" would be Amber and "G" would be green.

Sub PivotLoader()
Dim Red As Integer
Dim Amber As Integer
Dim Green As Integer
Red = Range("H9").Value
Amber = Range("H10").Value
Green = Range("H11").Value
Range("B8").Select
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable4").PivotCache.Refresh
Range("D25").Select
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=18
Range("B49").Select...........................

## Chart - Second Series Starts Where First Series Ends?

Sep 21, 2011

I would like to have two series of data using the same X axis (date, formatted in months). The Y axis is in intervals of 100,000.

The first data series is historical (actual) data (i.e. Jan 2009 to August 2011). The second data series is forecast (Sept 2011 - August 2012). So i want the forecast series to start immediately after the historical series. It is a 'line with markers' chart. The key objective is that the forecast data looks visually distinct from the historial series.

Excel version: Excel 2010
OS: Windows 7

## Formula (below) To Add The Hrs Between 2 Time Periods?

Jun 20, 2014

I'm using this formula (below) to add the hrs between 2 time periods (4:30 pm in cell I37 and 8:00 pm in I38, then the formula is in I39) and works almost every time even when the second time goes into the am hours, except in certain instances such as: 4:30 pm to 11pm show as 30.5? But sometimes it shows the correct number, 6.5

## Defining Time Periods In Graphs?

Mar 27, 2012

I need to produce a graph that provides the user with opportunity to define the time period, i.e. start and end dates for the data to be used in the graph.

## Breakdown Time-periods To Hours

Aug 20, 2012

I have a source table that contains time information about shifts people work:

E
F
G
H

37
Source Table

38
name
date
start-time
stop-time

39
John
1-1-2012
13:00
15:45

40
Frank
15-8-2012
8:45
10:30

Now I'm looking for way to 'enhance the resolution' of this information to an hourly basis.

This means I would like to know how many hours John worked on 1-1-2012 between 15:00 and 16:00 (0.75).

I probably need to add 24 calculated colums to the table corresponding with the hours of the day.

## Extrapolating Revenue Over Various Time Periods

Sep 27, 2007

I have a spreadsheet that holds a list of customers and the contracts they have with my company - this sheet includes the Total Contract Value in £s - so how much each customer will pay us for the service - the period of the service - so the start date of 01/01/08 to end date of 31/12/08 for example. What I then have is all the months across the top of my spreadsheet and I need to extrapolate the contract value, based on the period between the months.

Initially I had complicated formulas that simply divide the value by the number of months of the contract - however, my company has since changed the policy and requires it to be done to the day.

For example, if the value was £12,000 and the period was 12 months from 01/01/08 - to calculate January 08 it would be - 12,000 / 365 * 31, Feb would be 12,000 / 365 * 29 and so on...

Does anyone know how I can do this - bearing in mind that each contract won't be as easy as 12 months - it may be start date of 15/06/08 to 08/10/10 for example... If anyone can help me do a formula or formulae to calculate the value for each month - I would be very very grateful - as always... [/img]

## Dates Distribution Between Time Periods

Aug 30, 2007

What formula should I use if I have a list of maturity dates and current investments amounts as of 06/30/07:

06/30/08 10,000
08/31/14 18,000
05/31/08 11,000
07/31/09 25,000
06/30/10 14,000
12/31/25 80,000

and the amounts need to be distributed in columns titled:

Within 1 Yr (From 7/1/07 to 6/30/08)
After 1 to 5 Yrs (From 7/1/08 to 6/30/13)
After 5 yrs (After 7/1/13)

## Match IDs Across Spreadsheets By Corresponding Time Periods

Feb 5, 2008

There are 2 seperate spreadsheets

S1 - "End"
No. | ID | Name | Login | Total | Jan-07 | Feb-07 | March-07 | => | Dec-07
S2 - "Datasource"
ID | Irrelevant Name | Period | State | Irrelevant Data

I need something to go through the unique IDs in the "Datasource" & find a match in the "End" spreadsheet & then insert the number "1" in the corresponding time period (matching Period with Jan-07 or which ever it's suppose to represent). The Period is written in the following format:

122007 for December 2007
12008 for January 2008

One thing, the datasource has dates for both 2007 & 2008. The end spreadsheet has 2007 in one worksheet & 2008 in another.

## Formula To Count Number Of Times A Occurs Between Time Periods

Nov 30, 2013

I am attempting to create a formula that will count the number of times, lets say letter A, occurs in column E. However, the tricky part that I have been confused on is that I only want to count how many times A occurs between each hour of the day. I need to count number of times "A" occurs between each hour of the day for the entire month.

My Worksheet looks as such: Column A contains the dates for the month of November, Column B contains times that random instances occur, Column C is not important, Column E contains a Letter A-N that pertains to what occurred at a time in column B. SO, Column B and column E coordinate with each other.

Here is an example. Column A - Cell A1 - 11/01/2013 , A2 - 11/02/2013, A3 - 11/03/2013.
Column B - Cell B1 - 12:01 AM , Cell B2 - 14:03 , Cell B3 - 15:23
Column C - Cell E1 - A , Cell E2 - A, Cell E3 - B

So I would like Column F to display that between 12:00 - 12:59 Am there was X number of times the letter A occurred throughout the entire month.

## Chart Making- Chart With 3 Data Series

Jun 30, 2008

I have a chart with 3 data series. The series are located in columns A, B and C respectively. Series I is a general number anywhere from 0 to 100,000. Series 2 is also a number, but is is devided by series 1. So, if series 1 was 100,000 then series two would be 25,000/100,000 which is 0.25. Series three will always be numerator of series 2 or 25,000 in this example. The numerator, or the 25,000 will never change, so, in my example, series three will be a straight line across the chart because it is always 25,000.

In my example, the .25 is plotted on the left value axes, and series one is plotted on the right value acccess (secondary axis). Series three is just a line in the middle.

My problem is that sometimes the line, series 3, doesn't match the values in both the right and left values axes. So, if series one is 48,000, then series two would be 48,000/48,000 = 1, and series three would be 48000 - the straight line. The third series should be a line touching the 48,000 on the right and the number 1 on the left. It does touch the 48000 on the left, but is below the number 1 on the left.

## Change Chart Series Pasted From Another Chart

Jun 19, 2008

I want to use a macro to change attributes of a series in a chart. Unbelievably, if the series has been pasted into the chart from another chart, and although the macro can address the series and even return values (eg name) correctly, the selection simply cycles to one of the original series on the chart.

## Use VBA Variable In Chart Series

Oct 2, 2012

I'm attempting to create a dynamically built donut chart using VBA, but I'm having trouble inserting a variable to be used as one of the values.

The chart graphs 3 data points:
ASC GP - Located in cell T4
ACC GP - Located in cell AE4
ACT GP - variable called LocSumActGP

The code snippet I assumed would work looked like this:

Code:
.SeriesCollection(1).Values = "='Location Summary'!\$T\$4,'Location Summary'!\$AE\$4," & LocSumActGP

But it doesn't seem to like that.

## Adding A 2nd And 3rd Series Onto A Chart

Jan 24, 2007

I have the following code which puts a series onto a chart

With Charts("Test Chart")
.SetSourceData Source:=Sheets("Data").Range("A1:B" & Nreadings), PlotBy:=xlColumns
.Axes(xlCategory).MinimumScale = 1
.Axes(xlCategory).MaximumScale = Nteeth
.Axes(xlValue).MinimumScale = Miny
.Axes(xlValue).MaximumScale = Maxy
End With

I would like to add a 2nd or third series onto the same chart using the same scale etc. How do I do this in VBA code? Whenever I add another line to add a series it just overwrites the first series I have shown here.

## Dynamically Chart Series

Sep 18, 2008

I have calculated data (the column and row headings are calculated as well) similar to this for which I need to create an automatically updating chart.

******** language="JavaScript" ************************************************************************>Microsoft Excel - test.xlsm___Running: 12.0 : OS = (F)ile (E)dit (V)iew (I)nsert (O)ptions (T)ools (D)ata (W)indow (H)elp (A)boutA1=

[HtmlMaker 2.42] To see the formula in the cells just click on the cells hyperlink or click the Name box
PLEASE DO NOT QUOTE THIS TABLE IMAGE ON SAME PAGE! OTHEWISE, ERROR OF JavaScript OCCUR.

The chart should update if the data is filtered; so if a user doesn't want to see the 'orange' row they can filter the data accordingly. There is a finite number of rows and columns in the range but sometimes there will be less data. I have tried to convert the data to a table and that works quite well except the legend keys persist: so if there is no data for pillows and stickers the legends still appear and have to be removed manually. Also, there seems to be a bug in Excel 2007 whereby the removal of a chart linked to table data causes a persistent error message to appear.
I know that I need to created a named range for the data series using OFFSET, and I have also read that I need to refresh this formula using VBA but I am now very confused and none of my attempts quite work.

## Each Chart Source Row As A New Series

Dec 13, 2006

my problem is:

I have a whole list of data which changes according to the users preferences
It comprises of a NAME, X Value, and Y Value and the addition of X and Y. (these all have auto filters on them)

The user inputs under these fields, as many rows as they wish (which will be around 20ish)

I want it so when i click a button "CREATE GRAPH"

it selects the highest 10 values (if there is 10 values, if not then all the values) from the 4th column (X+Y) and then creates a graph. i want each row to be a new series...

## Scale Chart Series To MIN & MAX

Sep 26, 2007

I have a Scatter chart that plots a simple XYScatter plot. The data for this plot can be very wide ranging, and for that reason, I use AutoScaling to scale the axes. Nine times out of ten, it works just fine, but it seems that when the X data ranges from about 5200 to 7200 +/-, the autoscaling does not calculate well (example attached).

Autoscale range will go from 0 to 8000, leaving a large area of unplotted graph space.

I thought the original issue was that I may be plotting zeros or blanks, but I've eliminated that problem. I have yet to find another range of values that causes it, but I'm sure there's some. What is it about the way that Excel calculates its AutoScaling that I'm missing?

What do you all recommend to eliminate this problem? Manually scaling it is not really an option in this case, as I want this to be completely transparent to the user for ANY range of data.

## Reference Last Chart Series

Jan 3, 2008

I am trying to create a chart that will allow the user to add/remove series to compare with each other. When adding a series, Excel gives it a name (e.g Series1) the macro is then set to rename it to a particular cell, however the name Excel gives the series varies depending on the order in which the series are added.

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(SeriesCollection.Count)

instead of

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1)

would work collect the last series added, which is what I want, but when I apply this I get an run-time '424' error.

## Name Each Name Series Collection Of Chart

Feb 7, 2008

I hope this passes muster. Anyways, I wrote some VBA code to handle an embedded chart in my workbook. I named the chart "Data" but i'm getting some unexpected trouble from VBA. Last time I worked on this set of code, it ran fine. When I try to run it now, it is throwing up an error: "1004 Unable to set name property of series class" The .name function is not working correctly but everything up till that point is working correctly. I have 5 sets of data in this chart also ....

## Adding And Removing Series To Chart?

Jun 6, 2014

I want to use 4 toggle buttons to be able to add and remove 4 different series to a chart. When the toggle button is clicked, a specific series is added to a chart, and when it is unclicked then the series would be removed.

The problem I am running into is that unless I add and remove each series in a specific order, I will get an error because I may be trying to remove a series whose series number is not on the series collection in the chart.

for example: if I remove series number 2 with the toggle button for that specific series, then the toggle button for series number 3 will remove the old series 4 (which is now 3), and the toggle button for series 4 won't work because series 4 will now have become series 3.

Therefore, would there be a way to remove a series based on the name of the series, rather than the series collection number?
