Basically I have some performance figures for a fund that I want to make a chart for, the problem is that the first date (the start date of the fund) is 15/09/2011 but every reporting date after that is the end of the month.
So my data looks something like this (not real figures)
So what I want is a graph where the x axis starts at 15/09/11 but then the next label is 30/09/11 and 31/10/11 etc, while still keeping the scale proportionate to the dates, ie the distance between 15/09/11 and 30/09/11 will be half the distance between 30/09/11 and 31/10/11.
The 2 outcomes I seem to be stuck with is either forcing the graph to start at 31/08/11 and making the y axis cross at 15/09/11, however with this the x axis goes left past the y axis cross point and it just looks dumb, although everything right of the y axis is correct.
Or secondly I get the graph to start at 15/09/11 and set it to label every 1 month and all the labels are 15/09/11, 15/10/11, 15/11/11 etc
It all works fine but I've noticed an odd quirk which I can't explain nor can I seem to fix. Here's the (reduced) code :
Code: Dim appExcel As Object ' Excel Application Dim chtPareto As Object ' Chart Set appExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application") Set chtPareto = appExcel.Charts.Add With chtPareto ' Primary category axis
The category (x) axis title should be horizontal, whereas the value (y) axis title should be rotated. Stepping through the code, when I .SetElement for the category axis title, it appears horizontal as planned. However, as soon as I .SetElement for the rotated value axis title, the category axis title also rotates.
I need to color format several matrices of about 1000 rows each in order to find a pattern. Each row needs to be formatted on a color-scale so that the maximum value in each row has the darkest color and the minimum value has the lightest, while others are lighter according to their weight. It can be done on a single row, but it does not work for multiple rows at once. I have tried format copying and range options but it takes the maximum and minimum for the whole range rather than individual rows.
I'm wondering if it is possible to do it for multiple rows while the criteria of maximum and minimum applies to individual rows.
The scale on our chart in the X axis is mandating a numeric number. It is showing "39200" instead of 4/28/07. In any event, we would like to have 4/9/07 -- the last date we have data for and the last date that we have referenced on the X axis.
The chart is in the attached chart.xls and the data is in the attached chart.xls
how to get the min value scale value off a graph when .MinimumScaleIsAuto = True? The reason I ask is that I want to make my baseline for the graph that min number so that names from the x axis are not sitting in the middle of the graph. Incognito Auto Merged Post;I feel real bright...just playing around I found my answer...
I have some code for changing the scale of my chart axes so that when new data is inserted into the column which the chart sources from (say column B), the axis scales on my chart will automatically adjust (as the Excel algorithm sometimes leads to charts which are a bit squashed). This code works fine, and I have included it below.
I have then tried to introduce an ActiveX listbox so that when you select an item in the box, the reference number generated (1,2,3...etc) then determines which data series is inserted into column B using a vlookup function. However, when I do this, the original VBA code for automatically adjusting the chart axes no longer works.
Option Explicit Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) With ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(1).Chart
We have a lot of charts we want to create in Excel 2007. We have templates created that seem to work. (But also sometime seem to not.)
After the charts are created that are placed in their own chart pages/sheets. The problem I'm having is that the x axis title doesn't seem to be centered horizontally wrt the x axis of the plot area. (It does look centered wrt the chart area.)
Some code or an algorithm to control he placement of the x axis title and maybe center it?
I want to automate the Display labels in my Charts using VBA Coding…
I would need to use this small code in Charts with different Scales as some of the Scales in my Data are in a very large Range close to Trillions so its not possible to have these as the Primary-Y-Axis Scale and therefore I would need to use the in-built Display label option which Excel provides..
However, I always prefer to have the scale in the Range of Thousands so the Max I can have in the Scale can be 10,000 so if there is any Number more than that or the Scale is going above than I would prefer that this gets auto-calculated to Multiply with the remainder and show appropriate Scaling.
For Ex:In this example My largest Number is 4500000000 which is 100 M..So I would want the scale to show 4500 and the Display label as X Millions..
So The Display Label would be different for different Ranges but the Max Scale preffered would be 10,000.
I am trying to figure a way to search for a cell that has a specific date and time range. There are several cell titles pending on the activity. I want to find a cell that has a time ** 7:30-15:30 , 15:31-17:30, 17:31-20:30. The end result is to calculate the activity between those time periods based on the data cells.
If the date searched time field ** the activity ranges is 1635 I need to split the time and credit the activity time in the 730-1530 time and the rest on the 15:31-17:30 time
I have been able to do it on a single labor group based on time alone, but when I try to add the DATE to it my numbers go null. Eventually i will need to add 11 labor groups daily for weeks at a time .
I have a rather large spreadsheet that takes a long time to calculate. One sheet has the data (about 2800 rows by 650 columns), with samples in rows and data for each sample in the columns. A second sheet has functions to group the data according to predefined patterns. That second spreadsheet is about 800 columns wide and as many rows as I need it to be, as the samples don't need to be analyzed all at once.
Ideally I would like to do all samples at once by making the second spreadsheet 2800 rows high, but the calculation time is just way too long. And there's the problem. The calculation time seems to increase exponentially with the number of rows I calculate at a time. I ran a few tests making it different sizes, and here are the results:
100 3.5 150 12 200 23
I tried both HLOOKUP and INDEX/MATCH functions and it didn't make a lot of difference. These numbers are for INDEX/MATCH.
Graphing these numbers show that it follows an exponential curve pretty closely. What is interesting is that the progress indicator at the bottom of the screen finishes in a few seconds, about 5 seconds for 350 rows, and I can see the new data after those few seconds. But then it sits and appears to do nothing for the rest of the time. So, for 350 rows, it looks to be done with the calculations within 5 seconds, but then it freezes for another 2 minutes with CPU usage maxed out before I can do anything with the program. That actual calculation time seems to scale linearly with the number of rows I calculate, but the time after it finishes calculating before it finishes whatever else it's doing scales exponentially.
The spreadsheet does have a macro and a couple of other sheets and a macro that do some later analysis and I wondered if that had something to do with it. To check that, I created a new spreadsheet and set it up the same as the original one, with the data in one spreadsheet and the INDEX/MATCH formulas in the other. I copied the data over, but setup the formulas new without copying/pasting anything. It didn't make any real difference.
I have got a project that has several hundred starts and finishes. I want to count them over time to use as an indication of progress. ( I want to show this graphically)
I have got the graph working but it is pretty long handed.
I have tried using a pviot table and picvot graph which almost does it but has a few problems (if there is no data in a month then it wont create an entry for the month, and the cumulative over time is not quite working).
Both examples are in the attached file : Progress Curve ozgrid1.xlsx
The code below scans from the column on the row of the worksheet till it finds a blank, this seems to work ok as I previously had a msgbox in that displayed the value of n once the loop finished
So I was hoping that the values in the columns on that row would be added to the combobox but for some reason I get a typing missmatch error.
Dim n As Integer n = 1 Do While LValue6 "" 'find out how many alternatives there are LValue6 = FoundISBN.Offset(0, 32 + n).Value n = n + 1 DataInput.ComboBox1(n) = LValue6 - I was hoping that the value in the cell was added to the combobox Loop
I am using Excel 2007 on Windows 7. I would like to remove duplicates as follows: If column A = column A, column B = column B, and the two rows are within one hour of each other, then remove all duplicates, leaving one instance of the row. As you can see, sometimes the duplicates are right next to each other, and sometimes have rows between them. (Rows 1 & 2, Rows 30 & 32). Even though this sample doesn't show it, sometimes there can be tens of duplicates within an hour, not just two.

I have a set of data points with date and time shown in the picture. I need to take out all the data point that are at the 30 min interval. Meaning I only want to have the data points hourly only. What can I do to remove the :30 minute datas.
I have tried the find option typing In :30 and getting all the points but then have to replace, which I do not want to do. Need to remove them so they do not show up on the trends ( graphs) I made for them.
This is for excel 2007.
Seems I can't get picture up on the ipad, so the data points look like this
I want a drop down calender to choose date from and found that i can use More Controls> "microsoft Date and Time Picker 6.0 (SP4)" for excel 2007 but it doesn't work with other excel and shows a "x" not recognised in some other machines.
I have the following code below for a timer in a userform. Right now it is configured to start when a button is clicked. I would like to have it automatically start the timer after the workbook is open for more than 5 minutes but so far have been unable to get it to do so. I have tried putting the code in the workbook module but it still won't run. It also has a button to reset the timer if they need more time in the workbook and also a button for them to save and close the workbook if they are finished. I'm running Excel 2007.
VB: Private Sub CBReset_Click() Dim T, E, M As Double, S As Double T = Timer Do E = CDbl(Time) * 24 * 60 * 60 - T 'elapsed time in secs M = AllowedTime - 1 - Int(E / 60) S = 59 - Round((E / 60 - Int(E / 60)) * 60, 0)
I am creating a spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel 2007 which holds information about the airline Emirates which I have created using information from the internet. I am currently creating a sheet which has all their flights in and holds information about the departure time and arrival time of the flight and the type of aircraft ect. I am wondering if there is anyway in being able to have the cell which has the flight number in to change colour (Green or Red) if the flight is in the air or not by using the departure and arrival times already set on the sheet. I am wondering if you possibly need to have a live time on the sheet so that it can work with that .....
When I open a spreadsheet I get the following message
Excel found unreadable content in Book_Name. Do you want to recover the contents of this workbook.
All the information I find says:
This issue occurs if the following conditions are true: The workbook contains a PivotTable that uses key performance indicators (KPIs). The KPIs are created in the Analysis Services Business Intelligence Development Studio. One or more of the KPIs have an expression in the Current Time Member property.
and the fix is : To resolve this issue, remove the expressions from all Current Time Member properties.
My issue is - the spreadsheet with Pivot tables is supplied to me. I am using Excel 2007 - how to remove the expressions?
When I do this on another machine same version of excel I have no issue.
I open a spreadsheet or workbook that has links to other workbooks I am notified by the message bar that content has been blocked. I click Options > Enable this content > OK. Even if I don't make any changes I'm prompted to save changes when I close the file. If I hit Yes or if I hit No, I will still be prompted to enable content in the message bar the next time I open the same file.
I have changed the External Content settings in the Trust Center to "Enable all data connections (not recommended)" and "Enable automatic update for all workbook links (not recommended)" but I still get the messages.
My Message Bar is set to "Show the message bar in all applications when content is blocked" because I read on Microsoft KB that the other option of "never show information about blocked content" will still block the content, just not tell you about it, which doesn't fix my issue.
The files I'm opening and the files linked to and from them are all on the same shared drive on a file server in the office. Is there a way to tell Office '07 that our file drive is a trusted source by default?
I have a formula (below) that looks only at records based on specific filtering criteria or conditions; one of those conditions is the month of the year: ('Data Dump'!$Q:$Q,Summary!$A$26). This portion of the formula would change as a month is selected.
Opposed to having to rewrite the formula every time that I want to view a specific month, I want to automate the formula to change the first condition when a user selects a month from Column A. This would be a real time, automatic refiltering and recalculation as the user selects different months from Column A
Current Formula that filters and shows only January records. =COUNTIFS('Data Dump'!$Q:$Q,Summary!$A$26,'Data Dump'!$D:$D,Summary!$A$2,'Data Dump'!$M:$M,Summary!C$2)
Column A (January is in cell A26) January February March April May June July August September October November December
1) How do make values on x-axis as words? E.g. apples, oranges, etc.
2) Is it possible to have the numbers on x-axis in descending order? If I can figure out 1), I can do this as well, but it would be nice to know if it is possible to have the numbers on x-axis in descending order.
I have some VBA code that in one portion of it an Outlook e-mail is created and the active workbook is attached and sent. This code used to work on Excel & Outlook 2003, but now in Excel & Outlook 2007 I'm getting the error:
Please find attached a daily copy of a spreadsheet that is used to monitor train running times.
The columns on the left - "Serv No, Serv Start Date,Train No:, Scheduled Arrival, Scheduled Depart" are provided to us automatically and the underlying cell formatting/formula cannot be changed. This information is cut directly from a daily report sent to us the previous day. The cell formatting for the start date is custom - dd-mm-yyyy hh:mm.
The sheet is usually locked out with user access only to the left hand side to cut and paste train times in and the input columns on the right hand side. User has no requirement to adjust any details in the left had column apart from to add additional trains at the bottom is need be. I have left the loaded sheet blank and complete with all underlying cell formatting, conditional formatting and formulas intact for you to play with.
Both sheets essentially do the same thing so whatever formula changes are made to the empty sheet can be adapted for the loaded sheet.
For simplicity, I will focus on the empty sheet. What I am mucking around with is having the user input the train arrival time in the "Actual Arrival" column - (column F)
What I am looking at then making occur is the spreadsheet automatically filling the adjacent columns with the appropriate text and calculations.
To do this excel needs to compare column the number (cell input is text formatted) as a number with the arrival time in column G. It then needs to calculate if the train is Early (16 minutes or more before scheduled arrival), on time (+/- 15 minutes either side of scheduled arrival) or late (16 minutes or more after scheduled). It then needs to automatically place the letter "E", "O" or "L" in column K and the time differential in column L.
My problem is two fold.
Firstly, I cannot seem to make the spreadsheet automatically enter a letter into column K depending on the above conditions.
Secondly, I have had limited success in having the spreadsheet compare column J with column F and working out the differential. However, this only works if the time remains linear. IE only if the train runs on time or late. It gives an incorrect time differential if the train is early. I will attach this spreadsheet tomorrow as an add on to this post.
