Can Excel Draw Shapes or Angles based on Data? I have a radiation Excel file that solves for Radiation intensity using Distance and shielding as reducing factors. Similar to a circle of light being less intense with distance so is radiation. I need excel to draw a circle from a point specified based on a value I give. For example at 1 ft I might have 500 R in 1 hour (life threatening!) At 16 feet I have about 2 R in 1 hour (not safe for too long). These circles would be overlayed on an map. I would like to draw a new circle at various distances, simialar to a bullseye. I would also like a triangle drawn based on angles and SIN / COS / TAN formulas

Iv got Column A with angles between 0 and 1.56 radians. These angles are generated randomly, so it can be 0.22, 0.56,1.55 etc etc...Now in column B Iv got to carry out a function. The function is =43.22/COS(AX) X depends on the corresponding value in column A.

Every thing is fine up to here and I can do it...BUT I only need to carry out the function if the angle in Column A is smaller than 1...And if the value is bigger than 1 it only needs to output a value of 80. Thats it so...depending on the value in column A it will either carry out =43.22/COS(A) OR just make it show =80.

Im trying to create shapes Rectangles and Squares with different colours within an excel sheet, where the length and height of the shapes is generated by input values.

Also is it possible to create 3D shapes, again where the size of the shap is generated by input cell values.

I have some code, in one part of it I am storing a number (between 1 and 8) as Integer. Is it possible to reference this variable to draw some rectangles on a sheet, sort of

"If MonitorDetail (this is the name of the variable) .value = 2 then

Here I place the code to draw the rectangle on the page. The macro currently stops at Monitordetail with a error telling me its a "Invalid Qualifier".

I want to put a length in one cell and a width in another. Then have excel draw a square/ rectangle to this size. It could just outline cells, each cell being one inch or any other way.

I have data sent to me describing angles as integers from -180 to 180. I need to average these angles together. For example, the average of 10 and -2 should be 4. Great. However, the average of 175 and -175 should be 180.

Has anyone ever worked with this type of issue?

(I've thought about converting -175 to 185, but then I have trouble with 5 and -5, which becomes 355).

I should probably note that I have a list of angles, not just 2. The analysis I need to do is 1) average of all angles and 2) difference from the average for each angle.

I have a map of the US composed of 50 shapes (one for each state). I need each shape to appear or disappear based on a value in a corresponding cell. I can't use VBA for this as it needs to function for users in a high-security Excel 2003 which doesn't allow macros.

I'm trying to plot a chart of some sort in Excel to display 4 angles that different blood vessels branch off the aorta. Ideally I'd like to input the values of these angles which would vary from patient to patient and have them be displayed in some kind of chart. The chart I'm hoping to achieve would be cirular with the 4 angles represented by spokes which extend out all of the same length. I've attached a rough sketch to show what I'm trying to achieve and I'd be hoping to be able to change each angle in a worksheet and have the chart update to reflect.

I am trying to do here is select a value from a drop down which is linked to a formula which triggers the macro shape..i have all that down already... but the problem is that I will have multiple values in the same drop down and I needed to figure a way to delete the previous macro shape in that range. And so i have created the delete all shapes code below but it seems whenever I use the code it deletes the data validation drop downs

here is what I have so far...

Function Macro() ' DELETEALLSHAPES ' ' ActiveSheet.Shapes.AddShape(msoShapeRectangle, 220.5, 105.75, 92.25, 51#). _ Select End Function

I was looking for some code to randomly generate a number for a prize draw I am doing. I found a great piece on this site, which I have slightly changed to give me what I have below.

It works great except for one thing I cannot work out, I have the code below working on cell "C1", I would like it to work in cell "C5", but I can't seem to work this out.

Sub SlotsNum() Dim w As Long, x As String, y As Long Randomize x = Format(Int((Range("B2") - Range("B1") + 1) * Rnd + Range("B1")), "0000") For y = 1 To 1 For w = 1 To 250 Range("C" & y) = Int(8000 * Rnd) Next w Range("C" & y) = CInt(Mid(x, y, 4)) Next y End Sub

Also, whilst here. i will have one other problem, with it being a prize draw I do not want to draw the same number twice. At the moment I have a small macro that copies the winning name that appears on the main screen (via a vlookup) onto a winners spreadsheet. I am thinking of then creating another macro that replaces the winning name on the master list with an "Already Won" entry, so we can just select again.

Is it possible to add horizontal lines to a user form, like as shown in the attached image. I know about frames, but unsure how to get just one horizontal line.

i have faced a problem i want to draw straight connector using code imagine when you select straight connector to draw line mouse cursor changes when you move it to a node i want to do this with excel vba code without going to shapes and selecting connector.

I have this Command button that switches on and draws a line. If you press it again then I need to delete that line.

If I push the button multiple times Excel keeps changing the name of the line. I have multiple lines on the same worksheet and text boxes but only this 1 line needs to be delete. I would think that theres a way to assign a permanent name to this line and delete and recreate it but...

I have a 5-column listbox in a userform. I do not know how to make the column borders visible. If somebody can tell me, that would be great.

If not, then the next alternative would be to manually draw a line. I tried to so one, by creating a Label with a width of 1, and backcolor ot black. This works but not in front of a list box. For some reasons it cannot be brought to front/forward (order) of a listbox, I already right-clicked several times and sent tthe order to front.

I have attached a very simple example of what I am trying to achieve.So we have 2 sheets. a sheet called data and a sheet called results.

the data sheet, includes ID's of employees and what they are measured on - Hours and Accounts Finished.For example, worker 123 put in 100 hours from the 200 expected and finished 100 accounts from the 200 expected. The main sheet called Results looks up in a list every ID and displays in a table the compensation the worker got. Each time you select from the drop list a different ID number it shows the result and the amount of money they got.

I want to be able to draw every worker and display the compensation they got('Results', H11) in the Pay amount column('Data',H3:H11).

I have a worksheet set up as a draw sheet for a tournament. I have a set of rankings showing all points collated from last tournament. What i want to do is set up a formula/macro so that a cell containing a player eg. the winner will be found on the ranking list and the points won will be added to the next cell on the ranking list.

I've recently come across this wonderful site and have found it to be a pool for great information. I looking for some assistance with finding a macro that will draw circles/dots on a worksheet when the left mouse button is clicked at the mouse cursor location. There may be something out there already??? Here's exactly what I need; I want a macro that will draw 7 different coloured circles (blue, pink, cyan, lime green, red, yellow, and orange) on a worksheet. The macro would be activated from a button (7 different buttons- one for each colour) on the worksheet and when the left mouse button is clicked the coloured circle is drawn at the mouse cursor location.

I'm running a Secret Santa DJ competition this year and today now wish to make the draw.

Basically all entrants send in their mixes (in this case - upload to a webserver) and I then wish to try and use Excel to make the draw.

What I'd like to do is have a list of all the entrants in column a, use RAND() in column b to assign them each a number, and in column c use the list of entrants in column a to assign each person a mix to receive.

Through my browsing and searching on here, I came across the following (entered as an array); it's brilliant but unfortunately gives me duplications.

way to calculate the drawdown for a futures trading account’s equity. The following is the record of taking a sequence of 20 trades. Drawdown is defined as the lowest point between two consecutive equity highs. Therefore a formula should detect pairs of equity highs and then find the maximum difference between these highs and the lowest point in between each of these pairs. Do you think this can be done using standard excel functions?

You might wish to plot a linear graph to visualize the equity. Looking forward to hear what you think! I include more examples of equity records.

formal definition of a drawdown:

Drawdown: The magnitude of a decline in account value, either in percentage or dollar terms, as measured from peak to subsequent trough. For example, if a trader's account increased in value from $10,000 to $20,000, then dropped to $15,000, then increased again to $25,000, that trader would have had a maximum drawdown of $5,000 (incurred when the account declined from $20,000 to $15,000) even though that trader's account was never in a loss position from inception

I have to draw a polygon of n sides whose , whose length of side will be given in the cells of excel and the diagram should be displayed in excel itself automatically

Like I have A1=5 A2=5 B1=4 B2=3 C4=5

Then diagram should be like in the attachment : Untitled5.pngâ€Ž

I'm trying to get a random prize draw working with in excel. My worksheet structure as follows.

A1 person's name B2 points obtain by the person.

A1 B2 John 10 points Ken 20 points Amy 30 points

1st draw. If random number result between 1 and 10 display John wins then delete John's entries.

2nd draw etc... and delete anyone that has already won a prize.

With the following code I found on this forum it partly works. It only randomly select a cell but missing displaying the winner and removing it afterwards.

Currently we have data that is plotted to a scatter plot along with an already defined line. Next, with a straight edge we attempt to draw a line parallel to the already defined line through the scatter points of data. We basically find two points that give us the best fit to the original line. What I attempted to do was calcualte the slope of the original line and then the slope of each combination of two points in the data set. I then subtracted the slopes, found the minimum difference and thought that would give me the line most parallel to the original. This doesn't seem to work. I'm at a loss, any advice?
