Chart Data Labels

I am trying to write an If statement that returns true if Valule is checked off in the Data Labels portion of a chart. I tried using a HasDataLabel properties but Excel didn't recognize that.

Chart Data Labels Blanks
In a chart if you display data labels is there a way of avoiding a zero being displayed if the relevant cell is the result of a formula?
It seems that even if the result of that formula is a blank or 'n/a' it is still displayed as 0.

AutoFilter Changes Data Labels In 2007 Chart
I have a scatter chart and have applied data labels using the VBA macro supplied with Excel 2007. They pick up the cells in column A. But I now want to use Autofilter to show different ranges in the chart. Everytime I filter the chart data, the data labels change to show a different label (in fact they seem to be starting from the first label again, even if this value is not shown on the filter). I have tried to edit each data label and enter free text, I've also used a formula to link to the cell and made it absolute, but nothing is working.

The chart must be a scatter chart as it is plotting 2 values. I'm trying to create a Project Portfolio Risk Chart showing Benefits against Difficulty.

Remove Zero Value Data Labels From Pie Chart
I have a pie chart that shows numerical values in dollars and I'm looking for a macro that will delete the $0 data labels. I found this code from Jon Peltier (great website by the way) but I can't seem to get it to work on my pie chart. No errors, just doesn't do anything:

Sub CleanUpActiveChartLabels()
Dim iPts As Integer
Dim nPts As Integer
Dim aVals As Variant
Dim srs As Series
For Each srs In ActiveChart.SeriesCollection
With srs
If .HasDataLabels Then
nPts = .Points.Count
aVals = .Values
For iPts = 1 To nPts
If aVals(iPts) = 0 Then
.Points(iPts).HasDataLabel = False
End If
End If
End With
End Sub

Manipulate Chart Data Labels Height, Width....
I m working with bar charts and as I've heard these labels can be a bit of a pain. I've got the labels in roughly the right position 90% of the time however that other 10% has me in rolling fits.

My issues
1. A label within the chart area is wrapped on two lines, how could I restrict Excel from wrappign the label
2. A Labels position covers some of the data reported and thus makes the graph messy

how could I find the position of the end of the bar and also the length of the datalabel so I could reposition it. Note I am using 2003 and that I am trying to use


for finding the position although this is only really where im getting to. finding the wrapping position and also being able to manipulate the length of the label is proving tricky.

Negative Chart Values Causes Overlap With Data Labels
I have a Column Graph that will be changing automatically as the data is changed. My problem is that for one set of data the chart looks fine....but if a number becomes negative the bar will overlap with the data labels at the bottom and cause it to be unreadable. I am not able to resize the x axis area or move the labels down any. Is there anyway to make the labels adjust automatically?

Add & Delete Multiple Chart Data Series Labels
My friend has set up an excel workbook with a sheet for every month (labelled Jan graphs, Feb graphs, Mar graphs etc) which has 7 pie charts per sheet. The problem is the pie charts are showing the 0% fields and the data labels are overlapping. I have found a macro that gets rid of the 0% labels but I need to repeat the macro for all the 7 charts on each sheet and all 12 worksheets for each month of the year. I am very new to VBA and coding of any type and have looked but can't find the solution.

The macro I am currently using for "Chart1" on "Jan graphs" is below. The charts are labelled Chart1, Chart2, Chart3 etc.

Sub ClearLabels()

Worksheets("Jan graphs").ChartObjects("Chart 1").Chart.ApplyDataLabels _

For Each x In Worksheets("Jan graphs").ChartObjects("Chart 1"). _

Show Chart Data Series Labels On All Series. 2007
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?

Chart More Labels
I have a basic bar graph showing the average home prices per quarter. I know I can turn the legend on and position it to show the average price on top of each bar in the graph. I would like to add an additional legend (on this chart) showing how many homes sold per quarter but not display it as a bar. I just want the number displayed maybe on the bar or below the bar. Can I add a separate (extra) legend?

Not Show #N/A On Chart X-Axis Labels
I have a chart that feeds from dynamic ranges which contain whole rows of null enteries displayed as #N/A. The charts do not plot these enteries (as it shouldn't) however it does display the category label even if it too is #N/A. Is it possible to remove the category label if all data for that row is null. ie the label is also removed from the chart.

Grouped Labels On Chart X-axis
I want to create grouped labels on a chart x-axis of the type created automatically when creating a pivot chart. For example: I have projects, samples and sample yields. There are multiple samples in a project so I have a sheet that looks something like this below:-


I would like to create a chart that has Project and Sample as the x-axis where the samples are all grouped into their project. Pivot charts do this nicely, but how to do it without a pivot chart? As you will see from the attached file I can get both Project and Sample on the x-axis, but the Projects are overlapping.

Offsetting Category Labels Along A Chart Axis
Has anyone ever succeeded in offsetting category labels in a chart by surpressing the first category label. I am plotting monthly financial data over several years and want to show category labels for the month ends which coincide with quarterly month ends (i.e Mar-06, Jun-06, Sep-06, Dec-06). If I select 2 tick marks between categories I get Jan-06, Apr-06, Jul-06, Oct-6) because my first month and category label is Jan-06. Is there a way to offset displaying the first category label by two tick marks and start with Mar-06 and then go every two tick marks between category labels?

Data Labels Show As % Instead Actual Value
See xls file. I have this chart and the data labels are percentages instead of the actual value. How did these get that way? Under Chart Options there is a autotext box that is there but if I uncheck it, the data labels go back to the actual dollar value and that autotext box goes away.

I am totally baffeled by this despite serach the help, the internet and this forum. I am sure it is something easy I am missing.

Can some one provide some color on this?

I cut this from a larger book with many tabs because I am not able to send out the entire thing (proprietary).

Format Data Series Point Labels
I am building stacked XY Scatter charts and having difficulty formatting the y-axis values (which are data series point labels)

Rob Bovey's XY Chart Labeler manages this fine, but I work in a strict corporate environment which does not allow downloads. Also the file will be posted on our web as a tool for all company users to extract and analyze data from corporate databases.

I am stuck on the number formatting of the labels. My file is too big to attach; I have included the code below.

I'm sure there is something very basic that I am missing. Needless to say VBA is a challenge for me.

Option Explicit

Sub Atest()

Dim intR As Integer, intP As Long
Dim sngVal As Single, sngY As Single
Dim dtX As Date
Dim chtTst As ChartObject

Set chtTst = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("GRAPHS").ChartObjects("Chart 18")

Data Point Labels On Filtered Source Range
i'm using this source to add labels to data points in charts:

Sub AttachLabelsToPoints()

'Dimension variables.
Dim Counter As Integer, ChartName As String, xVals As String

' Disable screen updating while the subroutine is run.
Application. ScreenUpdating = False

'Store the formula for the first series in "xVals".
xVals = ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Formula

the code is from ms and works. (for some reason they also declare variable 'chartname' although it's never used, anyway). the full thing here: [url]

i actually have my source data filterable. so depending on the filters chosen, the chart updates itself. so it removes data points in the chart as more filters are used.

the problem is that the labels ignore the filters. the code above just goes down the column to grab the labels grabbing values in order, even if they have been filtered out.

a cumbersome workaround would be to copy the filtered data to another range and use that for the labels. this is neither optimal because i have lots of data or elegant.

Odd Chart: Combine Data From Multiple Worksheets And Make A Chart
I am trying to combine data from multiple worksheets and make a chart. I have about 200 keywords in every worksheet (about 50), and some of them repeat themselves through worksheets and some don't. For every keyword, I have an associated value in the next column that I want to portray over time (each worksheet is for a different period).

So what I need to figure out is how to be able to pick any 10 keywords from the worksheets and put them in a line chart where I can see the associated value for each period for every worksheet so I can compare my keywords' efficiency. The tricky part is that some worksheets do not contain the keyword and other worksheets contain the keyword in a different cell than the previous wsheet.

Chart Making- Chart With 3 Data Series
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.

Graph The Following Data In An Area Chart With Line Charts Superimposed On The Area Chart
I am trying to graph the following data in an area chart with line charts superimposed on the area chart. I have a lot of data (and a lot going on) so I'm trying to figure out the best way to show this in excel from a functional standpoing (i can't get this to work in excel!!) to also an asthetic standpoint (dont want it to look terrible or illegible). This is what I'm trying to chart:

1) Weather data (temperature) by region:
So one region, would be: Northwest
I would like the "area" (so a shaded region) to be the min/max of the temperature data for each month.

2) I would like to show the temperature for each year as a line graph on the chart - so you can see if a year falls in or out of the shaded region.

3) I would like to show a company's sales increases across the same months per year as separate line charts. I may choose to just show the biggest outlier year in the end... or to show 2006 (the latest data).

What I am trying to convery with the chart is that the company's sales is or is not tied to weather deviations. I have attached an excel file with the data. I haven't been able to use the area chart or get a two axis chart to work or get it to look even remotely professional.

Add Data Monthly And Then Have To Manually Update The "source Data" To Reflect The Added Data On Chart
I have a column line chart to which I add data monthly and then have to manually update the "source data" to reflect the added data on chart. This is a rolling graph, which mean that I have to remove data for one month(from last year) and then include the new month's data. Is there any way on automating this a macro or something, so once I add the data excel automatically removes one month of old data and make changes to include fresh data. Eg Currently chart is based on data from A2:F2 and I add new data to cell G2. I need something which automatically update the source data to cell B2:G2.

Selecting Data For Chart
I'm working on a macro that creates columnplots from a sheet of data.

The sheet is organised as a series of tables. Through a userform, the user selects the columns and rows that she wishes to include in the plot.

Is it possible to control the order in which the data is plotted?
For instance, the macro produces the following range to be plotted:

"$D$29, $B$29, $C$29,D33:D31,B33:B31,C33:C31"

where row 29 contains the table headlines, and rows 31:33 contains the data.
However, when I plot this, it always ends up as column B, then C, then D, rather than D first like I wanted.

I'm fairly new to both Excel and Visual Basic, so it's difficult to explain exactly what I'm after, but hopefully someone will understand what I'm after here..

Area Chart With #N/A Data
Currently I'm working with an amount of data that corresponds with one data point every day in one year. Not every day is measured thus nothing is entered, some days can also be 0. Therefore I've made an if statement in the column next to the raw data column with an if statement returning #N/A if a cell contains nothing or 0.

This gives me normally no problems when I want to make a Line chart, excel just skips the #N/A cells and draws the line to the next data point (that's the whole reason for the if statement). However this is impossible with area charts. I can understand why, but I still want it as nothing or 0 in a cell not necessarily mean that nothing happened.

Printing To Labels For Years
I created a wedding list with a bunch of fields for each household: first name person 1, second name person 1, first name person 2, second name person 2, street #, street address, apartment, city, state and zip. Then I realized that I probably needed to combine fields for each line of the address so I created 3 combined fields: 'combined 1 ' that looks like this "joe smith & patsy cline," a 'combined 2,' that looks like "14 jones street, #3," and a 'combined 3,' that looks like "New York, NY 10037."

I haven't printed to labels for years and when I did some quick research via the help function on excel it said to print labels via word...which worked fine until i got to this section: " In the Mail Merge Recipients dialog box, click any column labels in your data that correspond to the Word identifiers on the left. This step makes inserting your data in the form documents easier. For more information about matching fields, see Word Help. "

I have no idea what this means, but here's what I need to figure out: " how do I print labels using just 3 of 8 existing columns in my spreadsheet, i.e I just want to use combined 1, combined 2 and combined 3 for the 3 lines of the address. My first instinct was just to cut the contents of the combined fields into a new spreadsheet and just do it taht way, but I created the combined fields using a formula which relates to the other fields........

current format is date-week-no. inspected-no. defective-yield...have input 1 jan 2001 as default date...and 0 and 0 as default no. inspected and no. not want to keep on doing this...
