Chart Type To Choose - Assign Particular Column To Particular Axis Only

Jan 16, 2014

I have a excel with data values in 5 different columns.

Column A: Time in seconds (1,2,3,4,5.... so on) continuously in equal intervals.

Column B: Values Generated by my machine at each second (random values)

Column C: Values generated based on column B using a formula (Let formula be denoted by " F ").

Column D: Highest possible value of calculation on column B (With +ve error consideration in formula "F")

Column E: Least possible value of calculation on column B (With -ve error consideration in formula "F")

Two graphs need to be generated as follows:

Graph 1:
X Axis: time values ( From Column A )
Y Axis: Corresponding machine generated values from Column B

Graph 2: Envelope
X Axis: time values ( From Column A )
Y Axis: Both value of column D & E ( Time value 1 sec has two corresponding values, one from Column D and one from Column E)

Both values of Column D and E be plotted and the area between two lines generated by upper limit and lower limit (Column D and E respectively)

So for both, what chart types should I select, and how do I assign that particular column to that particular axis only.

Gantt-type Chart With Quarterly Marks On The Date Axis?

May 22, 2014

I'm using a stacked bar chart (in Excel 2010, running on Windows 7) to create a simple Gantt-type chart - with just four or five bars. I've got my chart looking most of the way I want it to, but one thing still eludes me: I'd like to set up the major axis ticks to be quarters of the year (from 1/1/2011 to 4/1/2013). Since quarters are not regular intervals (they are not exactly every 90 days), I can't do this using Excel's standard functionality for choosing axis tick marks.

Column Chart With Both Value X And Y-axis

Jun 30, 2006

I am trying to create a column chart/graph with "Days Past Due" on the x-axis and "Quantity" on the y-axis. In other words, data from one column needs to make up the x-axis and data from another the y-axis where the bars will rise to meet that quantity. I was wondering if this is possible. I have not been able to find a way to make it work so far. I know there is a way to do it for a line graph through XY scatter, but I need a column chart.

Broken Axis Column Chart

Sep 26, 2006

how to create a column chart with a broken y-axis? And if this is possible, is it also possible to have 2 gaps in the y-axis. I have several countries in which i gathered information about their (expected) population sizes over time (2003 - 2011). For each country i want to make a chart in which their population size is shown over time. In order to compare these countries i want these charts all having the same y-axis scale (which expresses the population size). To be able to do this i want to put some gaps in the y-axis. I think i need 2 gaps because i can divide the countries in "low population" countries (2-3 million), "moderate population" countries (7-14 million) and "high population" countries (> 30 million). I attached a sample file to make things more clear! I hope somebody knows more how to do it!

Second Category Axis & Value Axis To Current Chart

Sep 27, 2006

how to incorporate another category and value axis to my existing chart.

1. I need to add a rank axis derived from my data column (C6-C15). This column should rank from highest to lowest and create a tie if any number is repeated. I have arranged the rank column in cells B38:L38 as they would appear. I would like this to appear on the top or bottom of the bar graphs.

2. Second I need to add the frequency of hits which = 3 derived from cell J1 This should appear on the chart were it is currently titled. This should create another bar graph colored green and labeled 3.

3. Lastly the numbers axis can remain the same as it appears on the chart or if it would be better to align as shown in cells B43:L43.

Assign X Axis Charts Values

Sep 28, 2011

I would like to know how can I plot my x axis of a chart with the maximum and minimum value that I have in this variable. Note that my variable is no going from the lower value to the highes one, it is random. So what I did is to use the autoscale of the chart, but it is not working as I would like. Any solution?

The code that I use is:

Code:

' TO GET THE INITIAL and FINAL VALUE and the STEP
Worksheets(wsheet(27)).Activate
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(chartName(11)).Activate
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MinimumScaleIsAuto = True
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MaximumScaleIsAuto = True
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MajorUnitIsAuto = True
xScaleMin = ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MinimumScale
xScaleMax = ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MaximumScale
xScaleStep = ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MajorUnit

'After I use them (xScaleMin,xScaleMax,xScaleStep) for several charts, in this way:

ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(chartName(11)).Activate
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory, xlPrimary).AxisTitle.Text =VarName
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory, xlPrimary).AxisTitle.Select
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory, xlPrimary).AxisTitle.Font.Size = 11
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MinimumScale = xScaleMin
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MaximumScale = xScaleMax
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MajorUnit =xScaleStep

' but if my data was between 50 and 250 it is plotting between 0 and 300

Show Missing Values In Pivot Chart (line Chart) Axis?

Apr 18, 2013

How can I add missing values to the axis in a pivot chart line chart? I have a numerical X-axis with values such as 0,1,5,8,14, etc. I have another set of Y values that correspond to the X values. If this was an XY-scatter plot I'd be able to plot X vs. Y and connect the dots for "gaps" in the X values. Since it's a pivot chart I cannot use an XY-scatter plot, I can only use a line chart. The line chart doesn't give me the ability to add the "missing" values, so it gives the impression that my data is more closely packed than it is. The data source is external to my spreadsheet, so I cannot add the values before creating the pivot table/chart.

Basic Chart: Set A Chart Up With The Time Been On The X - Axis

Aug 1, 2007

Allow User To Choose Dates To Chart

Sep 12, 2006

selecting dates and data and makinga graph

and thought I could learn this one myself. I was wrong. Andy Pope came up with a nice little spreadsheet but I could not follow it (being a novice).

The problem is, I want the user to be able to input a start date and an end date and a graph to update automatically between these dates (for the x-axis) but also the y data adjust to suit.

The input cells are C23 and C30, and the 5 Y-axis data are the coloured columns.

I have attached a zip file with the excel spreadsheet inside.

Allow User To Choose Range For Chart

Apr 29, 2008

What I want is when I click the button 'chart', a pop-up appear and ask which S that I want to include in the chart.

Simple Line Chart With Buttons To Choose Datasets

Apr 19, 2014

I want to create a chart on a sheet. If I were charting one data set it would be real simple; I could do so by selecting the range of data values which are in a single column with the respective dates in another column and chart it with data on y, dates on x.

Each point was sampled on a day, only one point per day. I have a table for each person, one column has the data point, the other has the date it was sampled on. I would most like to pair each for not every person has a datapoint sampled on each day.

I have ten individuals with that metric (dataset based on the same sampling). I want to add and erase a line on one chart for any and each person by clicking a toggle button for that individual so we can do any comparative thought of.

Pivot Chart Object: Find Any Suitable Object To Choose From To Make A Pivot Chart In Powerpoint

Mar 21, 2007

1) i have office 2003 on a laptop. within powerpoint, i can create a 'microsoft excel chart 11' object. to create a link to the excel data source, do i have to go through the odbc sql setup? it works, but i don't want my powerpoint to be dependent on some excel file somewhere. what are the other options to insert/make a functional pivot chart in powerpoint with the data also within powerpoint? the data as sheet option does not result in the chart being a pivot, it's just a plain chart. it has to be a proper object, not an image paste or a chart that updates links with the excel file open.

2) i have office 2007 on my other laptop. i can not find any suitable object to choose from to make a pivot chart in powerpoint. what's the best way to go about in 2007 version?

3) am i going about this the wrong way with the objects? should i be after vba code?

Chart With Two Axis

May 17, 2007

I have some simple data and i want to create a horisizontal bar chart with 2 axis (X axis) the top one showing number of stocks number up to 270 and the bottom with Market Cap up to 1,200. (See attached). I set up the chart and it looks fine but it has only one axis so in order to create a second axis i right click on the blue series (no of Stocks) and go through the motions of setting up a secondary axis. However when i do that it ends up looking like the chart to the right with the Bars Cojoined (which is not what i want) I cannot seem to achieve 2 axis with separated bars

VBA Chart - X Axis To Appear As Dates?

Jun 5, 2012

I have a simple piece of code that creates a chart using the the values in column A as the x-axis and the values in column E as the y-axis. The values in Column A are all dates in this format: mm.dd.yyyy. However, when I collect the x-values they always appear as numbers (1,2,3). Even if I format the axis to Dates, they appear as 1.00.1900, 1.02.1901, etc.

Here is the code (also, I would like a VBA solution but if this is with excel's chart tools, so be it).

Code:

Sub Macro2()
ActiveChart.ChartType = xlXYScatter
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection.NewSeries
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Name = "=""Rate of Productivity"""
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).XValues = "='Sheet1'!\$A\$2:\$A\$4"
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Values = "='Sheet1'!\$E\$2:\$E\$4"
End Sub

Dual Axis Chart

Jul 31, 2007

How can I turn this into a dual axis chart whereby it shows the number of current stores open (like it does right now) as a bar chart. But also as a line chart shows the store potential (%) - so for example, PSUN has 960 current stores and has a 96% store penetration rate.

Bar Chart With Dropdown Box To Change X Axis

May 6, 2014

Please see the attached workbook.

I would like to create a bar chart which is linked to a drop down box (from data validation) that allows me to choose of the 3 sets of data to show in the x axis.

So if i choose "HALF YEAR", the bar chart will have two bars (one is "jan-jul" the other is "jul-dec") with the green section data if i choose "QUARTER YEAR", the bar chart will have four bars ("jan-mar", "apr-jun", "jul-sep", "oct-dec") with the blue section data if i choose "INDIVIDUAL MONTHS" i have twelve bars....with the red section data.

Chart Axis Date Intervals

Feb 20, 2009

I'm using Excel 2007 and I want to plot data vs dates. Furthermore I want the dates on the dates axis to increment by month not by a certain number of days. So something like this:

1-Jan-09
1-Feb-09
1-Mar-09
...

There's the Major/Minor Units on the Axis Options screen but I cannot type in a constant number since the number of days for each month is different.

Formatting Axis Of Bubble Chart

Aug 2, 2013

I created a bubble chart whose x-axis and y-axis show every 10th value between 0 and 100 (i.e. 0, 10, 20, 30...). The axes intersect at (50, 50) to create 4 quadrants.

I want to erase/hide the values on the axes (i.e. the axes will no longer show 0, 10, 20, 30... and at the same time, the bubbles will still be in the same place) to create 4 blank quadrants and make my bubble chart easier to look at.
