Excel 2007 :: Locate A Chart In Large Spreadsheet?
Nov 16, 2011
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.
In the attached spreadsheet I would like to locate the peak values of the numbers in column "F". I don't know if this is best done with a series of functions or by using a macro.
Column "F" translates to the light blue line on the attached chart. Column "F" (MACD) is the difference between a 12 week exponential moving average (EMA) and a 26 week EMA.
I would like the peak values from column "F" re-stated into column J,K,L or M. Ideally I would like to find the highest peak that occurred in a rolling 12 weak period. So not all peaks would need to be posted. By doing this I would only be identifying longer trends .
I'm using Excel 2007. 25 years experience using Excel and functions. Limited experience with Macros though long ago I used to write C code.
I'm have Excel 2010 and Windows XP. Each week I get 3 spreadsheets and each has data unique to it. Each spreadsheet has a week number column which is common to all three. I want to combine the three worksheets into one and make create several dynamic charts for management. How should I organize a large spreadsheet? In addition to my week number I have a host of other date fields. Some of the data I get is (1) vehicle VIN numbers (2) City/State/Country (3a) I break up the VIN to give me vehicle type (3b) year of assembly (3c) car type (3d) number of doors (4) mileage (5) complaint (7) defect code etc. etc. What are the do's and don't when setting up a large spreadsheet? I have data by week which goes back to 2006 and so my date fields go top-down. I inherited the three spreadsheets and would like everything under one roof, so to speak. One spreadsheet which I can make my charts.
I work with Excel 2010 and have a very large spreadsheet with data that I need to manipulate in several different ways. I have been filtering and then cutting and pasting but this is very time consuming . Is there a way to extract specific data from the spreadsheet and transfer it to different worksheets? I don't really know how to use macros.
I have data that as 872 columns - each representing a question ID (headers in the first row). I then have 1494 rows of data where each represents 1 unique person. In other words, A2 = Person ID and B2-AGN2=the potential answers to the questions.
What I'd like to do is compact this into 3 columns: "Person ID", "Question", "Answer".
"Person ID" will have duplicate values for each question that is answered. "Question" is the Question Text "Answer" is each answer to each of the questions.
It would be fantastic if Excel has the functionality to ignore null answers and therefore just not even bother populating Question ID when an Answer is blank (e.g. they didn't report an age, so QAge doesn't show up under the new "Question" field), but I have no idea if that's doable.
I have a lot of datasets like this with a varied number of rows and columns, so any way to adjust whatever formula/macro is out there to work for those. I'm terribly new with macros and so I've been having difficulty adapting them if I need to.
I know how to delete duplicates using the function under the data tab, but how can i locate them. For instance, a spreadsheet with a list of PO numbers, how can i do a search to see if it is showing the same PO number multiple times?
I need to insert a drop down box into my spreadsheet, and depending on the option selected, the formula used to calculate the value into another cell changes. How do I implement this in Excel 2007?
To put this in context, I need a list of acids in cell C3. Depending on the acid selected, the formula used to calculate acid concentration in another cell (D3) changes. I need a way to implement this.
I'm using Excel 2007, and when I add attachements to a spreadsheet cell (e.g. a saved email) nobody else can open the file when viewing the spreadsheet. Is there a way around this?
Currently I'm inserting it by going Object > Create from File > Browse > Select File > Display as Icon. But if the spreadsheet is emailed to anyone else or put on a staff website nobody can open the attachements.
Very simple Excel 2007 spreadsheet. It consist of four columns with either numeric or alpha data in the. No formulas, no macros etc...
She emailed the spreadsheet to me and it works fine, I can enter data without problems. Whenever she tries to use it she just can't enter any data. She clicks in a cell and it highlights but she doesn't get a cursor and can't enter data. If she tries to click in the area underneath the toolbar to enter data she also does not get a cursor!! It used to work just fine for her but has suddenly stopped!
I've got an Excel 2007 spreadsheet that I want to use to take the attendance in the school where I teach. I've got it more or less the way I want it, but there are 2 improvements I'd like to make:
1. I don't want to have press Enter to go down to the next cell. If a kid is present, I want to press 'p' and automatically be one cell lower.
2. When I open the spreadsheet (which contains multiple worksheets for different classes), I'd like it to open at today's date on the left regardless of which worksheet I go to (I've frozen the first four columns, so I'd like 'today's column' to appear next to them). I've put the dates in row 1. I've put the dates in the format ddd, d/m/y. (I don't know if that info makes any difference, hence I'm including it). I've already looked up some posts on this and copied and pasted a few different suggestions, but none worked.
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'm trying to get some vba to automatically find the range of data in a spreadsheet (So start from a specified point and loop until it's blank) and populate a combobox with this range accordingly. I have read numerous articles and posts but nothing seems to work!!
Need a code that sends emails to the intended receipients based on hold codes if Columnd J reads as YES Email formats are listed on "Email Format" tab, code should pick the required field value from the table (Hold Report).
Analyst name, Phone number are entered in the text boxes (data validation for these is desired)
option boxes are used to send email based on the selection as below
if "send initial email without attachment" is selected then emails should be sent without the attachments
if "send initial email with attachment" is selected then emails should be sent with the attachments
Attachments are usually .PDF files and are stored on users desktop with file name as .pdf
if the follow up otion is selected the subject line on the mail should be appended as *** 1st Follow-Up*** along with standard subject line
Rest of the requirement remains same for followup option (same email format is used) based on the option selected, code should be able to send emails with or without attachments. I have provided three command buttons that are intended to work as follows;
Validate data: need to validate the data to ensure that each row has atleast one email address in "TO" column and there are no spaces in the email address.
Clear Data: Should clear the existing data from the table
Send Emails: Should send emails
Standard subject line is a combination as below
Invoice on Hold for ; Invoice number: ; PO Number: ; Invoice Amount:
Note: Column H and I apply only for hold codes Qty Ord and Max Ship Amount
I have a userform with a textbox and would like the user to type inside the textbox which in turn send the text typed to a cell on my spread sheet say sheet 1 cell ref A1. I am writing the following into the control source Sheet1!A1 but the control source does not except this. I am using excel 2007 .
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 need to generate a microsoft word document from the data encoded in my excel spreadsheet. I am currently using MS office 2007.
in the Excel Spreadsheet from columns C to F "a) b) c) d)" was not typed but in the word document it automatically appears before the choices encoded in excel. Another thing is that some of the choices typed in the excel spreadsheet are in bold font and I want it to be generated in word document with the bold font as well.
By the way I am planning to use this technique to create a 100 item multiple choice exam for my students as I find using EXCEL to generate the document a lot easier than creating the test manually in WORD.
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:
