I have built a chart using dynamic nameranges. The problem that I am facing is I tested it on two systems . One system the charts works fine but the other system the charts does not work . Both are excel 2007. Now the error that I get is if I see the chart data source from one system it is showing "!". The other file shows the chart data source as "0!". What should I be checking so that it works in the other system as well?
I created a chart in Excel 2003 which relies on dynamic named ranges. For years this chart has been working beautifully. I recently converted to Excel 2007 and the chart no longer understands the dynamic named range for the x-axis. It understands the y-axis dynamic named ranges just fine. I have tried renaming the x-axis range to various names (none of which contain the word chart). I also experimented by just using a static range name. And I have tried recreating the chart from scratch with the same results. It lets me create the chart initially but then when I refresh the worksheet, the x-axis is blanked out.
I have a few dozen pictures created when a macro runs. They all have unique names. I'd like to add comments to cells, where the cell.value decides which picture to pull. All the examples I've found online show how to do this if you have pictures saved on your hard drive by referencing the file path "c://mydocs/...blahblah/"
Is there a way to reference the pictures I've created/named with my macro?
Here's the snippet of code that creates the pictures and names them:
Code: For i = 2 To Application.CountA(Sheets("Allocation").Rows(1)) Sheets("Allocation").Activate Set rInput = Sheets("Allocation").Range(Cells(1, i), Cells(10, i)) sPicName = "_" & Sheets("Allocation").Cells(1, i) & "_" sSheet = Sheets("Allocation").Cells(3, i) dDate = Sheets("Allocation").Cells(5, i)
Here are some examples that are close to what I'm looking for.

Is there any formula that I can use when working with a specific date range and if someone's birthday falls in that range a certain text or value would be displayed? For example I want to create a spreadsheet for my soccer players and have them sorted into teams according to their birthdays. So if their birthday falls into the following date range: 08/01/05-07/01/07 a U-8 or U-10 would be displayed in the corresponding cell. I tried working with the IF function.
I am working on this report for data from 2007 to 2011 for multiple customers. I have two columns of data for each customer for each year. My ultimate goal is to get a total for both columns of data and insert it in the row right under the row containing the last year of data. Below is a sample of what my data looks like and what I want it to look like. Here is the data:
I want to use VBA to insert an Organisation Chart in Excel 2007 (ie if I did this manually it would be Insert, SmartArt, Hierarchy), but I cannot find anything on line that shows how to do this in Excel 2007. I know the code for Excel 2003, but that does not work in 2007.
I have excel 2007 and I came across the following difficulty:
If I create a graph (or a chart) the default size is "Letter". However, I can switch this "Letter" to "A4" which I need and then create a template. But I always have to manually choose this template for new charts. However switching this any time I create a new chart is a rather bad way to cope with. Even clicking on set as default obviously does not cause to have A4 size for new chart, it still has got size of Letter when adding a new chart.
I assume the solution could be in XLStart templates, but it probably doesnt work for charts that you add. Or at least I didnt find any clue on the internet for this problem.
I am using Excel 2007 and the following code is generating an error 1004 (Method 'Range' of object '_Worksheet' failed) on the .Range select line. I am trying to select a bunch of noncontiguous ranges and then format them all at one time.
With Sheet1 .Range("B9:G9,B10:D11,E10:E11,F10:G11,A13:G13,A14:D20,E14:E20,F14:G20,A22:H22,A23:D24,E23:F24, G23:H24,A26:H26,A27:D28,E27:F28,G27:H28,B30:G30,B31:C32,D31:E32,F31:G32,B34:G34,B35:B36,E35:E36,C35:D36,F35: G36,B38,B39:C40,D39:D40,E39:F40,B42:G42,B43:D50,E43:E50,F43:G50,A52:G52,A53:C54,D53:D54,E53:G54, G61:G62,H65:H66,A56:H56,A57:H60,A61:F62,A64:H64,A65:G66").Select With Selection.Interior .Pattern = xlNone .TintAndShade = 0 .PatternTintAndShade = 0 End With End With
I've written longer lines of code, so I don't think it's a line length issue. Is there a limit to the number of ranges or cells that Excel can select at one time?
I have inherited a series of Word reports containing links to charts in several Excel files. I can tell by the link in Word that one of the charts is named 'Chart 6'. Is there an easy way to locate which chart in the Excel file is 'Chart 6' (and on and on for all of the other charts linked in the Word doc)? There are upwards of 21 charts in each Excel file linked to each of the Word reports. I am using 2007 but the files are in 2003 format because of limitations of the program from which the data comes for the charts.
I'm attempting to chart data obtained from our phone system to see when users are logged in/on rest.
I'm using Excel 2007.
The data we extract has: person | status | start | finish | duration
Status is either "login" or "rest" Start/finish is time (h:mm) Duration is a formula (h:mm, finish - start)
I want to have a stacked bar chart that shows when a person was logged in/on rest; one bar for each person.
x-axis: person y-axis: time (8am - 6pm) legend: status
The problem I'm encountering is that each person logs in and out multiple times throughout the day (therefore, has multiple lines to their name in the data), and I can't get this information to appear on a single bar for each person.
I've sorted the data into a pivot table which gives me the information I want, but how to get the chart.
Row labels a. Person b. status c. start
Values Min of duration
Ideally, I would like to avoid using a Gantt chart within cells (as it would involve vlookup/if statements), but am beginning to think that's my only option...
I'm using Excel 2007 and I have a reasonable level of experience with VBA coding in normal / object modules, but I have no experience with class modules or events ... so I do not have a good command on what goes into a normal module vice a class module if I want to use mouse events to rotate a chart.
I am looking to rotate a chart ... Since I am not allowed to post a file, I will give the 3D array here:
1.0000 2.0000 3.0000 4.0000
I have placed into a normal module the following code (based on what I was able to pick up from MSDN):
Code: Dim myClassModule As New EventClassModule Sub InitializeChart() Set myClassModule.myChartClass = Worksheets(1).ChartObjects(1).Chart End Sub
And I have placed the following code into a class module named EventClassModule (also based on what I was able to pick up from MSDN):
Code: Public WithEvents myChartClass As Chart
I want to rotate the chart by using click and drag, and, if possible, I'd also like to be able to zoom in and out via some method (say a mouse wheel event).
In the following link, a guy has done a beautiful job of enabling scatter plot rotation using scroll bars, but I'd like to be able to use mouse events instead:
I'm having a problem with named ranges in a chart. I'm using Excel 2007 in Windows XP.
I have a line graph with twenty different series all using dynamic ranges. I created each series individually, typing the name and then the dynamic range I had previously defined. As far as I am aware, Excel demands when writing the reference that you specify which sheet/workbook this named range is from, so, given the scopes of my ranges are all 'workbook', I added the name of the workbook to the references.
Series name: Series1
Series values: ='workbook name'!range1
This seems to work fine, but when I save and then re-open the file, the dynamic ranges no longer work. If I go to Select Data and look at the reference for a series, it has been changed thus:
In versions prior to Excel 2007, I was always able to copy a chart when I copied a tab. However, when I copy a tab in 2007, the data copies fine, but the chart does not. Something similar happens when I try to move a tab with a chart on it to another workbook.
I'd like to use two columns / labels to create a colorful bar chart that just piles each field value on top of each other and shows the amount (and percent of total if I can) along the first column's values next to the bar chart something like below..
So column 1 is the "entity name" and column 2 is the "value/amount".
I can't make this chart look right at all. I have Excel 2007.
I have a FOR loop which is supposed to loop through all the worksheets in my workbook, create a named range, then add some data to the right of the range. However, when I run my code, all the named ranges refer to the last worksheet in my workbook. The loop only seems to be partly working, and I just can't work out why.
Sub maxLifData() ' for each worksheet in the workbook, do dmax formulae and add results to new sheet. bhole id on left, depth across top. Dim ws As Worksheet Dim wsName() As String Dim i As Integer Dim mCount As Integer Dim nr1 As Range Dim nr2 As Range Dim head1 As String Dim head2 As String Dim wsRangeName() As String Dim maxF As String Dim fRange As Range Dim rng As Range Dim mRng As Range head1 = "STCN_DPTH" Set fRange = Range("G3") Set mRng = Range("A2") Redim wsName(Worksheets.Count) Redim wsRangeName(Worksheets.Count).............
I am building this waterfall chart. I'd like to put conditional color formatting to change the vertical bar automatically e.g. if it is positive, the bar color is green and if it is negative the bar color is red.
I have six colums (Date; Skill; ST Hrs; OT hrs: Area; Type). I copied and pasted below a small portion of info from the spreadsheet. I know when I copy and paste into a post the information under the headers don't line up exactly...it appears offset, so basically "Date" is of course the date you see..."Skill"'s columns has the first item as nb-mech b..."ST Hrs" first item will be 0.00..."OT Hrs" will be 1.50...."Area"'s first item is "Log FM NO"....and "Type"'s first item is MX07
And there are 17,000 rows of this info and forever growing...a lot of repeated items in each column such as you can see "blaster" has multiple entries on 4/1/2012.
What I am attempting to do which I have not firgured out yet (i have tried array formulas but they bog down the pc forver and couldn't figure out exactly how to make it give me the results I needed...and I also tried sumproducts but that didnt get me what I wanted....and it is being requested of me to NOT make a pivot table but a chart.
What I am trying to create is is the following:
1 - cells to plug in a date range for example cell A1 I plug 4/1/2012 and cell A2 plug 4/30/2012 2 - drop down boxes for columns Skill; Area: Type, which show only unique records in each column
Once I have that, I could then filter all 3 itmes and have only items show in the date ranges I picked and present ONLY the SUMS of columns ST Hrs and OT hrs.
Once the SUMS show up, I can then have cells off to the side that will give a percent break down of what percent of the total hours (for the chose criteria) are ST Hrs and what percent of the total are OT Hrs....and this percentage break down will show up in a Bar Chart, per day chosen in my date ranges....I'm thinking one simple stacked bar per day in the chart.
So say, based on the info below, I wanted to see the total ST Hrs and OT Hrs from 4-1-12 to 4-2-12 for a nb-blaster in LOG FM NO and type MX06.....my result would be 0.00 ST Hrs...23 OT Hrs.....and my bar chart would be one simple bar peaked out at 23 on day 4-1-12.....and within the bar it would be 0.00% ST Hrs and 100% OT Hrs and maybe the total hours for each showing also..don't need that but it may be useful.. ..and no bar for 4-2-12 (because the criteria picked had no hours for 4-2-12)
I have been messign witht is all week and just can't nail it.. I do remember a while ago I would have been able to load the spreadsheet into the post and people could see it in excel...is that option to do that no longer on this site?
My chart data range is: ='Summary Data'!$A$2:$BF$8.
Since it expands a few times a week to BG, BH, BI etc., it seemed to make sense to use the standard OFFSET and COUNTA formula to expand it. The every time I typed the Offset formula in, it worked but each time I save it, it changes to an updated (correct) fixed reference. i.e. back to the format above.
Many threads I've read seem to say that you should be able to use an expanding range in charting.
I am stuck trying to sort data that looks like the following, into a format that I can use as source data for pivot tables/charts.

I will need to group Data multiple ways. However, I cant work out a good way to sort it. Can I have a suggestion on layout that I will be able to arrange data appropriately.
I am working in a macro that will do some calculations and I would like to end it by plotting the results in some charts. Results are in one dimension array form, with probably more than 1000 elements. Can anybody tell me if there is any limit for the arrays that are going to be asigned to the XValues and Values of the chart?
Dim FName As String Dim VBComp As VBComponent Dim wbnew As Workbook Dim x As String
Set wbnew = Workbooks.Add
Set dest1 = ActiveWorkbook
dest2.Activate With ActiveWorkbook FName = .Path & "code.txt" If Dir(FName) "" Then Kill FName End If For Each VBComp In .VBProject.VBComponents If VBComp.Type vbext_ct_Document Then VBComp.Export FName wbnew.VBProject.VBComponents.Import FName Kill FName ElseIf VBComp.Name = "ThisWorkbook" Then If VBComp.CodeModule.CountOfLines > 0 Then wbnew.VBProject.VBComponents
The complete code in this workbook sends the entire workbook to one person and it creates a new workbook and pastes a range and the VB code needed to run the button it copies and sends this to another person.
The codes runs excellent in 2003. In 2007 I can get the entire workbook to send to the first person, but
The email to the second person will send, but they can not open the workbook. I get the error "File Format or file extension is not valid. Please verify file is not corrput and that extension matches file.
I know trust access to visual basic has to be enabled in 2003 for this code to run, so in 2007 I went to the Excel options trust center and clicked the box which says Trust access to the VBA project object model.
When I step through this code everything looks great. The worksheet area is correct, the button is copied, the code can be seen in the properties window, but then I get the email and it will not open.
There is even a line of code that kills the file after the mail is sent (temporary saving location is the desktop). So, I used a ' and made it a comment line so I could try to open the file from my desktop. It will not open there either. File extension being used is .xlsm
