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 a scatter chart and have applied data labels using the VBA macro supplied with Excel 2007. They pick up the cells in column A. But I now want to use Autofilter to show different ranges in the chart. Everytime I filter the chart data, the data labels change to show a different label (in fact they seem to be starting from the first label again, even if this value is not shown on the filter). I have tried to edit each data label and enter free text, I've also used a formula to link to the cell and made it absolute, but nothing is working.
The chart must be a scatter chart as it is plotting 2 values. I'm trying to create a Project Portfolio Risk Chart showing Benefits against Difficulty.
I am having a problem formatting a chart in Excel 2010. My chart has multi-level category axis labels, and I would like to have a vertical grid line separating each major group of categories. In Excel 2003, I could right-click on one of the gridlines and then specify the spacing I wanted between gridlines. In Excel 2010, as soon as I indicate that I want multi-level category axis labels, I get a vertical gridline between each category and I am unable to alter the spacing. If I deselect the multi-level axis label option, I can adjust the spacing between the vertical gridlines, but the axis multi-level label functionality is lost. Is there a way to fix this problem without having to resort to using the drawing tools or text boxes to achieve the desired results.
Was working on this problem for a poster: [URL] ......
I can't seem to get the pivot table/chart to format exactly as I desire. It seems that as soon as I add 'group by hour and day' Excel forces the formatting to AM/PM and I want to keep it military. I want to group by hour, so that data that occurs at 6:00 and at 6:30 are grouped, and I had to group by day so that 6:00 on 1/1 was separated from 6:00 on 1/2.
Attached is a worksheet which shows the desired chart format (not a pivot chart), and the attempted pivot chart. I want the pivot chart to match the 'simple' chart in look and feel. Any attempts to change the formatting of the row labels to 'h' is promptly ignored by Excel.
Note the two tasks that occur at hour 18 (one at 18:00 and the other at 18:20 (you will need to see the formatting to truly see the minutes)). Those should be combined in the pivot table (and they are) and on my 'adjusted' table (where I used SUMIFS).
I have an export from a database that I'm bringing into Excel 2010 of about 30K records. Data points are recorded numerically and I have their associated text "value label" (what it would be called in STATA, for example, not sure what it's called in Excel). I want to create various charts/pivot tables with the data and want the labels to be the text label, not the number.
For example, variable ASSIGNMENT has the following possibilities:
1 2 3 4
Here's what each of those "mean" (I have this in another table):
1 - Sick 2 - Overtime 3 - Court 4 - Present
How do I create a chart or pivot table where the labels are "sick", "overtime", etc., and not "1", "2", "3", "4"?
I have a chart with 20 series labels that are series 1, series 2.... etc. I want to label them with 20 corresponding cells but can't find how to do this in Excel 2010 (I seem to remember this being easy to do in older versions). At the moment I am having to click on source data and edit each label individually... Is there a quicker way?
I just recently installed Excel 2007 and I would like to know if it's possible to change all data points of a chart at the same time. In Excel 2003, I would normally hold down shift while clicking on each of the data points to make a global change. However, it appears I cannot do that in 2007.
I would like to display each data point's series name. When I go to Layout on the Excel Ribbon, and click on "Data Labels", and click on "More Data Label Options", the actual Y-axis values are shown for each data point. However, I do not want this - I actually only want the Series Name, but when I uncheck "Value" and check "Series Name" instead (under "Label Contains"), it only changes it for one of the series. Is there a better way, instead of going through each and every single series to make this change?
I'm using Excel 2010 and I've got a chart on a worksheet and the worksheet needs to be protected. I'm able to manipulate the chart in any fashion EXCEPT the position of the Data Labels. Is this a bug in Excel 2010?
I am using Excel 2007. I have a population that I used to create a pivot table. I am currently double clicking on the value cells to create worksheets of only particular "row label" categories. I am then copying the "row label" information into the newly generated work sheet name tab. This works fine when I only have a few "row label" categories to do but it is tedious if there are many categories.
Is there any way to automate the creation of work sheets for all row label values and also naming each work sheet tab with it's respective row label information. Here are images of the pibot table and the type of work sheet I would like for wall row label values.
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 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 have a basic bar graph showing the average home prices per quarter. I know I can turn the legend on and position it to show the average price on top of each bar in the graph. I would like to add an additional legend (on this chart) showing how many homes sold per quarter but not display it as a bar. I just want the number displayed maybe on the bar or below the bar. Can I add a separate (extra) legend?
I have someone in the company that I work for that is using Excel 2007 in compatibility mode, that is trying to make changes to an Excel 2003 file.
The file in question is a large one. She can type in the rows and columns and anything that she types will save. However if she trys to make any changes to the file in terms on calculations or highlighting specific columns, then these changes are not saved.
I have found out though that if she saves this 2003 file in the 2007 format, then all over her changes will save. She can't save it in the 2007 format due to some people still on 2003 that edit this file as well.
I'm trying to clear conditional formatting (icon set) that I was experimenting with, but no joy at all. The only function within the "Styles" section is Cell Styles -- conditional formatting & fornat as table choices are grayed-out.
I've tried to delete and re-enter the data, clear formats, clear all, copy and paste, format painter...nothing worked.
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.
