My spreadsheet has multiple charts, each referencing a dynamic named range as its source data (e.g. "California1", "California2", etc). Each named range contains multiple series. I would like to make it easy for a single chart to quickly adjust to display different named ranges (e.g. view the chart with "California1" data, then update the same chart to view "California2" data).
I'd like to do this without having to right-click on the chart, select Source Data, and then type in "California2" as the Data Range. My question: is there a way to make the chart's Source Data Range dynamic so that I can quickly select the named range that I want to display? For example, would it be possible to tie the Data Range to a separate cell so that if I typed "California2" into that cell the chart would know to use that named range as its new source data?
How can I write a macro to mirror x data that will be charted using xy scatter? The original data is entered into excel using measuring equipment with a footswitch. I need excel to automatically mirror the incoming data as it comes in. It should look like my example only with 2 more columns to the right with mirrored x data in the 1st and the same Y data in the second. Example.xls
Each week I have to add a new column to a report and then update the source data of all the charts that use that newly added column. I am trying to create a macro that will use the last 12 columns of data located on a different worksheet as the range for the source data of the chart. I have attached an excel document that contains an example of how one of the charts that I am using looks and where it pulls the data from.
Setting the XValues property gives an "Unable to set the XValues property of a series class".
Using the chart wizard, trying to set the category labels parameter of the chart wizard to a range doesn't give an error message, but does leave the category labels section of the chart (when I click and view it) blank.
I have various charts others view and require the data range to change in 12 month intervals, ie Jan07 -Jan08, Feb07-Feb08. I currently move the ranges manually every month but find the it would be more interactive for others if a drop down combo box on the chart were used enabling the user to choose which intervals to view.
Currently I'm working in an excel file that contains a lot of charts. I want to write a macro that changes the source data of every serie in every chart. It only needs to add extra rows. But as every series has different columns where they get the data from, how can I change the rows without changing the columns?
This is what I've written so far:
Code: Sub ammend_datarange_series_all_charts() Dim start_cell As String, end_cell As String Dim chart_tot As Integer, c As Integer, s As Integer
As you can see I've tried two things, first I tried to change the string of the source data, however this meant that every series would have C and E as their source data. So I wanted to retrieve the x and y values in string format. This does not work yet, it returns an array with the values of all the entries in the series source data. From that array I can not retrieve the column where the data came from.
I've read through every thread I can find about dynamic named ranges as source data for a chart. It seems as if everyone can get it to work but me. I have a chart on one sheet that needs to update dynamically from data on another sheet when a button is clicked. Here's my code that runs when I click the button:
Sub Update_Center_Chart() Sheets("Center Data Chart").Select ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Center Data").Activate ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source = Range("CenterData") End Sub
I get the error message: "Type mismatch." The data is in B1:F2 on a different sheet. The formula in the named range, "CenterData" is this:=OFFSET('Center Data'!$B$1,0,0,COUNT('Center Data'!$B:$B),4). The data will expand by 1 row every time.
I'm working on an assignment that pulls information for different countries and I'd like to know how to go about placing the charts on a specific area. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
With each click of a country, the country's information will be pulled from a 'data dump' that I created in the same file. The map and flag are also shown. Some of that information is just using lookups, or a combination of lookups and code, and the hardest part are the GRAPHS - which I'm having a really hard time placing and adjusting accordingly.
As of now the charts are automatically filled as the user clicks a new country, but all of the charts are placed in weird locations, but I'd like for them to be placed in the specified ranges above.
I have a protected template and unprotected source worksheets - - - what I would like to happen is for the macro to start and if the source worksheet cell B3 equals "Report Total" then stop - otherwise copy template worksheet then copy 6 specific cells from the source to paste values to specific cells on the newly created worksheet (B_ to C7, D_ to I7, E_ to C9, F_ to K9, A_ to C11, M_ to K11 and then K13=F13-30)
After that then start all over again unless the next row’s cell (B4, B5, B6, . . .) is "Report Total" then stop - - - the row count could be from one to a couple hundred.
Here is what I have so far but I know that with each copy the name will change and as it goes down the source file each row will change and I also need help with that.
I'm trying to create a chart with different source ranges e.g if i used
With ch.Chart .SeriesCollection.Add _ Source:=Worksheets(1).Source:=Worksheets(1).Range("C1:C8,J1:J8") End With
That works fine but I want to modify the columns it looks at. I was going to use the cells(x,y) method but I can't get it to work. icol = 3. Range(Cells(1, iCol), Cells(8, iCol)). This works for a single range(C1:C8), but how do i reference Range("C1:C8,J1:J8") in the same way.
Everything else in my macro is using R1C1 format for ease of automation. However, I cannot get this to resolve. I am setting the source data for a line chart.
However, if I use A1 format it works just fine.
I am using R1C1 for automation purposes. A1 format will not easily work. I have the interpolated statement in there because the range contains some empty cells. I want excel to fill the line in the chart using interpolation. All the data in the columns(N through R or 14 through 18 in R1C1 format) is contiguous. I have not tried Union, but it seems I should just use this range like I do in the A1 format.
I have a chart that I am trying to set up with dynamic data. I have the chart created, but the problem is that I will have a variable number of categories based on the data that is loaded, so I need to use VBA to change the range for the source data and labels on the fly (otherwise, I will end up with 20-50 categories that are all zeroes, putting a bunch of gobbledegook at the top of the chart).
What commands to I need to enter into VBA to get this to work?
I have put a formula in 2 cells to determine based on the current data what the source data values range should be, and what the category labels range should be.
The cell that holds the value range is Graphics!L6, and the cell that holds the labels range is Graphics!L7.
The current values that these cells hold are:
L6: =Graphics!$J6:$J9 L7: =Graphics!$K6:$K9 Oh, and the name of the chart is "Chart 1"
What do I need to put into VBA to get the chart to change the data source values and category labels to the ranges I have listed in those 2 cells? (and for that matter, have I listed the ranges correctly in those 2 cells so that they are usable?)
If possible, I would prefer to do this without having to use code to select the chart, because I want the updates to the chart to be invisible to the user.
In my table I have rounded my values to a particular number of decimal places. BUT, the bars of my chart have the length of the original numbers. This is especially ridiculous when in the table there are only (rounded) zeros, and in the chart I get several bars with different length. how to plot the bars in the same length as the numbers in the table are?
I am trying to create a macro which will allow me to change the source data for a particular chart. what i want to do is to have a code which looks in a range of cells (A8:B28) and then updates the chart to only include those cells within the range that contain a value? The number of cells with values changes depending on what options are selected elsewhere in the spreadsheet.
In a workbook that I am working on, a macro runs to import data onto 9 separate sheets. The data is essentially x- and y- coordinates of a plot profile from another program. The problem that I am running into is that the number of data points can vary each time the data in imported based upon how the data was acquired.
If I were to put a drop-down list (Method1, Method2, Method3, etc.) on the Instructions page that I have for this workbook and have the user select which method was used prior to running the macro, could I then incorporate some sort of IF statement in the macro to vary the Source Data Series for the charts that I have created? Right now, I have the Source Data covering the scenario with the longest list of data points so when fewer points are used, the graph looks essentially useless.
I have an excel addin that contains chart templates. Without going into too much detail a user will select an option which will update these templates then move the charts along with the source data to a new workbook. My question is this; How do I change the chart references programatically so that the chart data now points to the source data in the new workbook.
I'm trying to change the source data for a worksheet for a series of charts. The source data appears in a series of tables. There are about 30 such tables and associated charts on the worksheet. (I need to duplicate this many times over, which is why I need to automate.). The chart names seem to increment by 2 (i.e. Chart 1, Chart 3, Chart 5) And the source data for the charts increment by 9: BM95:BP102, BM104:BP111, etc. How can I automate this? Also, I'm trying to automate changing the reference in the title of the chart. This reference increments rows by 9. When I use the macro recorder to do this, I get the following
I have a periodic task which involves moving some sheets from an existing workbook and presenting it in a new workbook. There are some diagram that I move as well from the worksheet. However, I also move the source data for the diagrams into the new workbook as well. Everytime I do this I need to change the source data to the new worksheet which is quite tiresome. Is there a smart hack to actually point the diagram source data to the new workbook?
I have a table of company data, and I want to be able to select different companies data and create a chart automatically perhaps by pressing a 'create' button.
The table data contains three values I want to populate in the chart: red & green sales which I would like shown as a stacked bar, and red as a percentage of total sales which I would like on a different axis as a line.
I tried to create a macro but my VBA skills are almost non-existent.
I am trying to write a macro that will automatically change the source data for a graph. This is an existing graph that is on tab GraphYTD and the data for the graph comes from DataYTD. The number of rows of data will change monthly, but I would like to use the same graph template every month. Here is my
Sub SortYTD() Dim myBottom As Long myBottom = Sheets("DataYTD"). Range("B65536").End(xlUp).Row ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=Sheets("DataYTD").Range("F2:I" & myBottom) ActiveChart.Location Where:=xlLocationAsObject, Name:="GraphYTD"
I am getting Runtime error 91 - object variable or with block variable not set.
