I'm working with a pie chart that has a dynamic range as its data source and a dynamic range as its legend. The chart shows ratios of bought items depending on customer type. So, when you switch from a "Hair" customer to a "Bath & Body" customer, the ratios shift and the legend changes as well (i.e. "Hair - 25%" to "Hair - 10%").
Is there a way to fix the colors permanently so that as the ranges change, the colors remains the same for each category?
I've seen some VBA for it, but it was for data in long columns, whereas my data is in one range in the middle of the worksheet.
I have a spreadsheet that I have setup to have raw data pasted into. Long story short, it pulls the maximum reading for a given 5 minute period and returns the highest value for each 5 minute increment where there was a reading. It does this for all of the different dates entered, returning a separate data table for each date.
What I now need is to graph the data on a line chart. Since the number of time values can be variable, I have to include the entire range (for example A3:B5002). When I graph this out, it has all of the data clumped up at the beginning and flatlines for 99% of the chart.
I tried building dynamic named ranges using offset, but that seems to yield similar results once charted.
See the link below where I've dumped some sample data in (it wouldn't let me upload due to the size and I can't upload only part of it without breaking the whole thing). The data I need to chart is from columns A&B on the GraphData sheet. Sheet 1 contains the chart I have been trying to use. The endgame of this is to have the end user paste in their data and *POOF* charts.
My only restriction is that I cannot have Macros/VBA.
I tried following this post and using NA() instead of ""...no dice, it just puts #NA at the bottom labels instead of spaces.
I am looking for a creative way to display a pie chart within a data point marker of a line chart.
My database has 3 value columns, Type1, Type2 and the Total (Type1 + Type2) these are recorded per day (Date, in Column A)
I have a line chart that displays the total by date, but I want to find a way to display the percentage split of a particular day by type.
I was thinking to load the chart image into the Data point marker, but i don't think that is the best way as the data is updated daily and I would have to do it each day for a few line charts.
The other way I was thinking about was to have a generic Pie chat in the Line chart (Maybe in a corner) and the pie would update depending on way date series was selected or Mouseover'd)
the way that I am approaching it at the movement (Not the best way and by far not the coolest way. Is to have a list of all the dates in a column next to the Line chart and using some VBA, what ever date is selected in the column the pie chart displays the corresponding data. But eh challenge is that when there is alot of dates, I am going to be scrolling up and down.
I am using Excel 2010, but I cant not use the slicer's as the other users do not have 2010, they have 2007.
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 am working on a project where I am virtually almost finished except for a minor change with the pie chart. I am analyzing some data and recorded a macro to do this and also the pie chart for visualization. However, I do not like the color of the default pie chart colors and would like to customize it. How could I change this within the macro I have recorded?
My pallet lost color-coding - if I hover over each little scare it displays the names for the colors and if I click on them they color the cells with the right colors, but the palette itself lost the visual display of colors except for 8 colors: black, blue, red, magenta, yellow, cyan, and white.
I use color-coding of cells a lot and I find it difficult to work without visual clues. At least the hover-support allows me to get the work done, but with difficulty.
I am using the the stock chart and I would like there to be a horizontal line across the chart with a y-axis of the opening price. In the end I want this to be in VBA but how to do this manually I should be able to put it in loop of data that will produce many charts with a horizontal line starting at the day opening.
I have tried to add a new series to the chart but I'm using the Candle stick stock chart and the new series comes out as a vertical not horizontal line. I read about using a secondary horizontal axis but all the tutorials I find are in Excel 2003 and they donlt line up well with Excel 2007.
I found this link on charts with horizontal lines but again they are in 2003 and I'm using a candle stick stock chart not a scatter chart. [URL]
I want to a horizontal line in a chart. There are only two figures with me. One I want to display as a column chart. The other as a horizontal line chart. (I can use both excel 2003 or 2010, whichever is suitable)
I would like to be able to add a line (a trend line) to a clustered column chart. The attached jpg (picture copied from Excel Charts - Easy Excel Tutorial) shows the general structure, with the red (poorly) hand drawn lines representing what I want to add to the chart.
If using Excel's Trend line functionality is not an option, I have already calculated the trend points adequately, so have the data to add as an additional series or combine with an existing series. (using Excel 2010)
The title in the attached chart is a camera shot transferred from another excel 2007 worksheet in the same workbook.
I'd like to remove the border line, I've tried right clicking... then format picture ...no dialogue box comes up. I've scrolled through all the commands in the ribbon + non ribbon commands and can't find anything that seems appropriate that's not greyed out ....
I'm working on a workbook for tracking debt. It has 15 sheets. Instructions, Charts (for showing debt change over time), "Invisible" (this is where my chart data is, I plan to hide it), and 12 month sheets. On the Invisible sheet, for example, I have my data set up. I'm pulling the data from other sheets. In the screenshot, I'm using =Month12!P48 as the formula to pull my data from the other sheets. But, the user hasn't entered data yet for month 12, so the line chart drops to zero there. I want it to just stop and do nothing, until there is data in that cell. (I would prefer to use a line chart vs a scatter chart for this, but I have the same problem in both)
Excel 2007 is my version. I'm trying to build an array from a dynamic range. I will know the column letter and lastrow.I think I could do this via a FOR and NEXT routine but there has to be a more efficient way. Here is my inefficient code idea:
Code: Dim orgctarray(65000) As Variant 'because I don't know how long the array will need to be Dim cnt as integer Dim startrow as integer[code]....
So as you see, technically, I need to take sheet1.range("B3:B" & lastrow) and turn it into a vb array (I don't want to copy the data to some hidden worksheet and do the work there)I'd also like to remove duplicates and sort orgctarray alphabetically after I have completed building it.
I also notice that when it fails, on select method .. the button was actually added to the sheet with caption/name as "Button 65536" but then fails to select it. What makes the select to fail after adding the button? Could there be anything special with Button 65536?
Is there any better way to code the adding button and setting action and name for excel 2007?
note before entering the loop i am deleting all the shapes with myShape.Delete which name matches "btRun"
What I have done is entered code to auto generate the date in column O whenever data is entered or altered in column A. Here is that code:
VB: Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A:A")) Is Nothing Then _ Target.Offset(0, 14).Value = Now
End If End Sub
What I am trying to do now, is create a column that will take the information from O and do a sort of COUNTIF function that will count how many items of data were entered on a certain date by the day. For a clearer example, I want it to tell me how many items were entered/altered on 7/23. But I also want it to continuously calculate it for each date after that. Preferably automatically, but if a macro is needed I can create an update button.
Once it can achieve that I would like to create a dynamic graph that will automatically (or via macro button) update to show the last 5 days. It should display the date and how many items were entered that day.
I'm trying to make a little dynamic map of the United States where each of the states change color based on a particular cell value that corresponds to that state. I've got the map of the United States in Excel and ungrouped so I have a collection of seperate shapes - one for each of the lower 48 States. I've named each shape (state) by it's postal abbreviation: TX, CA, NY, etc.
Now I'm trying to write a macro that will COLOR the state according to a numeric value in the cell next to the cell containing the State abbreviation. These are transit days to this state that I will calculate in another location. Like this:
TX = 3 days CA = 1 days OR = 1 days NY = 7 days KS = 3 days FL = 7 days
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 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 have an Excel 2007 Workbook which is refreshed by a Web Query. I have dynamic named range defined as "Manager" which I've confirmed is correctly identified. This range includes only one column and is formatted as text.
When I try to reference this range in my conditional formatting "refers to" formula, all cells are recognized as blank even though the range clearly contains many cells that are not. For example, there are 90 records containing the initials "PD". If I use the formula =Manager="PD" in my conditional formatting, nothing changes. If I change it to =Manager="" then ALL records are formatted, including those that are not blank.
Stranger still, if I enter the formula =COUNTIF(Manager,"PD") into and empty cell in my worksheet those 90 records are counted correctly. Which leads me to believe it isn't about the data. Conversely, =COUNTIF(Manager,"") returns the correct count of only cells that are, in fact, blank.
I've tried using the OFFSET formula defining my range in place of the name itself for my conditional format formula to no avail.
