Excel 2007 :: Can't Resize Charts For Printing

Nov 26, 2013

I've prepared an excel file (excel 2007) with some tabs that contains several charts (4 to 6 charts). When I want to print this file, the sheets with the charts on it doesn't print properly. I have set the print area to cover the charts only and then set it to fit on 1 page but the charts will not scale to fit.

I read somewhere that this is an excel bug - is there a workaround for this?

I could resize all my charts smaller but only as a last resort.

Copy Charts From Excel To PPT - Unable To Resize And Format Chart

May 23, 2014

I have an excel which creates PPT from the excel. but the graph pasted in PPT are not aligned and formatted.

By aligned, i mean re-size the graph and paste in a formatted fashion (currently they are overlapping each other)

My entire PPT created is off alignment and formatting. E.g heading are not properly aligned (they are touching the line below) and so on.

Excel 2007 :: Resize - Offset And / Or Copy Destination

Jan 29, 2014

I have a NAMED RANGE of data consisting of 4 columns and as many rows as is selected. Name it CompTable1.

I loop through all of the 4 columns of data to format it (as shown below). This snippet is for column 1 of CompTable1 (a public variable as string) and I basically have the same situation for each column of 4 but replacing each respective x in cells.(n,X) & offset(0,-x) to take into account of where I wish the data to go as I loop through. Ultimately 4 (For Next) loops.

[Code] ......

The new range with 5 columns is as follows:
Column 1 from CompTable1 = Column 1 of new range
Column 2 of new range is blank for something later
Column 2 from CompTable1 = Column 3 of new range
Column 3 from CompTable1 = Column 4 of new range
Column 4 from CompTable1 is not used in the new range but is formatted
Column 5 of new range is blank for something later

This certainly works very well and with my amateur VBA status am quite proud of how far I have come in a few months. Is it efficient? Is it free of possible errors? Likely not. I wish to rid myself of the "Select" each cell plaque though maybe using a resize, offset or copy destination operation but can't seem to get it working. Once I do get the data in the new range, I format everything without selecting quite well with my methods described above.

Excel 2007 :: VBA Code To Resize Picture In PowerPoint

Feb 14, 2012

So far my VBA will copy my range of cells in Excel and paste them into Powerpoint but I'm totally stuck as to how to resize the image from there. I've tried a bunch of different methods and I get some pretty crazy results but can't seem to punch through to a solution. What I'd like it to do, at the end of the VBA is:

Set the lock aspect ratio to false
Set the Height to 5.5"
Set the Width to 9.83"
Set the horizontal position to .08 from Top Left
Set the Vertical position to .58 from Top Left

I cannot seem to get my save as portion to work at all. I commented it out at the bottom. This is all in Excel and PPT 2007.

Here is what I have so far:

Sub Export_Excel_to_PowerPoint()

Dim ppApp As PowerPoint.Application
Dim ppSlide As PowerPoint.Slide
On Error Resume Next
Set ppApp = GetObject(, "PowerPoint.Application")
On Error GoTo 0


Ultimately the behavior I'm looking for with this macro is to copy a filtered range of cells from Excel and paste it as a picture into Powerpoint (up til this point I'm golden) then resize the image on the slide, save the presentation, then exit PPT.

Excel 2010 :: Print Hundreds Of 6 Column Charts Using Maximum Page For Printing

Apr 28, 2013

I am using Excel 2010

I have over 800+ pages of chart that only takes up 6 columns and around like 9000+ rows.

I wanted to print this chart on paper and need hardcopies. However, the chart in its current setup prints only on the left half of the page leaving the right half empty.

How do i make use of the full space properly? Each chart has a "page number" on it so I want the chart to print continuously from one half of the page onto the next half and then the second page, third, etc.

Here is a visual demonstration of how things currently are and how i'd like to get them to be:

As you can see, This is the first of many charts and its numbered Page 9 and next one is page 10.


How this looks when i try to print, it's only on the left side. right is all blank

How i want it to look like upon printing

As you can see in the last picture, once page 14 chart has no space it automatically continues chart on right side of page and then moves on to print rest.

Excel 2007 :: Printing Data From Cell In Desired Place On Paper?

Jan 6, 2013

I hold some data in the Excel 2007 file. It's about 400 rows and about 10 columns. On occasion I have to print some values from this file. But it has to be in defined position on the paper. It is like I already have the prepared paper with fields, and I just have to fill some fields on the paper with data from the columns. Is it possible to make a program that will take each row that I label for printing, and print just some columns but in a defined position on the paper ?

Excel 2013 :: Resize Built-in Forms And Menus?

Nov 6, 2013

Anyhow, I enjoy the modern convenience of a dual-monitor setup but still find myself struggling with small forms(?) in Excel. For instance I am currently looking at the "Conditional Formatting Rules Manager" which occupies a very limited amount of screen real-estate. The sheet I am working on contains a large number of conditional formats which all use long custom formulas. I am not the original author.

I would love to be able to resize the overall size of the menu and the columns within it but, for the life of me, I can't seem to do so. It would be much easier to be able to see the rule formulas in one glance as opposed to having to go into each one to see the one-character difference. As stated before I certainly have the real-estate to do so.

p.s. I'm using Excel 2013

Excel 2010 :: Keyboard Shortcut To Resize Whole Application?

Apr 3, 2014

I need to resize Excel pretty frequently - I need to size the whole Excel app tall and all the way to the left, taking up about a third of my screen - then maximize it - then back to tall and left, etc. I can do it by clicking the "Restore Down" icon in the top right corner, but I can't figure out how to do it using the keyboard.

I've tried Ctrl-F8, Ctrl-F9 and Ctrl-F10, but they all act on individual workbooks within the Excel application. I want to resize the whole Excel application. Does it exist?

Excel 2010 :: Pictures Resize When Changing Page Breaks

Jun 11, 2013

I have a user here at my company that is having a strange issue with Excel. When she moves a page break in her document, Excel freezes up, then once it finally makes the change (if it doesn't crash), some (but not all) of the images that are in the document resize to super small.

For instance, she may have 50 rows. Each row contains a column with an image, then a few other columns with product information. Changing a page break may cause ten of the images to become tiny for no apparent reason. Resetting page breaks seems to cause the document to explode, with cells being thrown all over the page into different locations and columns becoming uneven.

When I make the same change on the same document on my system (both using similar specs and Office 2010), this does not happen.

Using Excel For Layout And Printing?

Apr 9, 2014

I'm a graphic designer with a few years of experience incorporating Excel content in design layouts, and for the first time I've been asked to use Excel to layout content. The client has a complicated spreadsheet that works as an interactive form, taking responses and running them through a hidden page of secret-sauce analytics before outputing results to a final report.

The thing is, they are hoping to use it in person with clients on an iPad, and then also print out all of the individual pages as a consistent-looking booklet.

I can make an excel page look good, but the printing just isn't going according to plan. When I go to print it distorts the pages. I can resize it to print, but then it doesn't work onscreen so well. And that's for one page: in a best-case scenario I'd need all of the pages to work for print and screen AND use the same scale so that they all look uniform.

how to use Excel for clean, consistant page layouts?

How To Link Excel Charts To Other Spreadsheets

Feb 6, 2014

I have to enter data into a spreadsheet daily and update a line graph with the data for 10 different production machines. I want to place the charts on their own separate excel file that way they can be easily viewed without the data next to them. I tried copying and pasting the graphs to another excel spreadsheet, but when I update the graphs on the original excel file the data does not change on the one I copied the graphs to. I use the select data range option to update the line graph data. Basically, I just want both graphs to update at the same time on both spreadsheets, but the links don't seem to update. How would I link the graphs so that both update across files?

Creating Many Excel Charts With A Macro?

Oct 21, 2011

I've got quite of few excel charts to make and have been looking for a way to automate the process. The chart types include line, pie, and bar. Basically, I have data for each state in the US that I am comparing with national level data. Thus each chart will have national level data and the data for each state. What I need is a macro that I can easily change the parameters for because different worksheets have slightly different layouts. I started by using the macro recorder to make a chart. Then I attempted to edit it so that it would run loops to make additional charts. Below is some sample data for the first worksheet I have and my attempted macro.

Sample Data:

State Characteristic Value07 Value08 Value09
Alaska A 11 23 45
Alaska B 13 22 98
Alaska C 99 91 21
Alabama A 23 14 11
Alabama B 44 62 76
Alabama C 75 47 21[code]....

This code doesn't run at all.

Excel 2010 :: Pasting Charts To Other Worksheets

Sep 29, 2011

I have a simple problem. I have many worksheets which all contain data in the first four columns. I want to be able to create a chart (a scatter chart) in the first worksheet which plots the data on that worksheet and then format it how I want it to look. This I can do.

Next, I want to copy and paste that graph into all the other worksheets, but have the pasted graphs display the data in that worksheet.

As it stands, in Excel 2010, all the pasted graphs keep showing the data in the original worksheet irrespective of which worksheet I now have them in. This seems to be different to older versions of Excel and is very annoying and has to be changed by hand which is very time consuming.

How can I make charts that don't have the worksheet name in the cell reference, or how can I paste a chart so that is updates the references to the same row and column but in the new worksheet?

I know I could copy and paste the entire worksheet and then manually copy the new data into that copy of the worksheet - but that is not a real solution to this problem.
