Excel 2010 :: Axis And Legend Labels Missing When Viewing?
Feb 5, 2014
I produced several charts in Excel 2007. They display just fine when using Excel 2007, but when we try to open it in our office computers (which uses Excel 2010), the Axis and Legend Labels simply vanish.I know there's these fixes for Excel 2007, deleting a buggy MS hotfix or installing the KB2597962 fix. But the problem is, I need it to display in our Excel 2010 computers.
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 recently switched to Excel 2010 and have a rather peculiar problem.Every week I update a bunch of charts in different workbooks. By update, I pretty much mean just shifting the range over one column or down one row to incorporate newly added data.
So I right click the chart, select "Select Data", update all the Data series ranges and then I click on the Horizontal (Category) Axis Labels button "Edit" to update the Axis label range.
I do all that then press OK. The data series have updated, but the axis labels haven't. So then I do the procedure again for the Axis Labels, hit OK again and voila: It worked.
But I ALWAYS have to do this procedure twice. It will NEVER update the axis labels the first time around. Even though the little preview window below the edit button show the labels correctly.
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.
is there a way to change the legend keys (aesthetically) in 2010?
I created a pie chart using a template but I don't want to keep the defualt legend keys. I tried changing the theme but it appears that the legend keys that come up are the same no matter what theme I change it to.
The Chart is a 3d Pie chart, I think that matters because the regular square legend keys show when the chart isn't 3D.
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 have created a UserForm that has a ComboBox and depending on the number selected I want it to show that number of Labels/TextBoxes...
So if I select "0" nothing is shown, if I select "1" one set of Labels/TextBoxes is shown, select "2" and two sets of Labels/TextBoxes are shown... but also if I have selected "2" and then select "1" I want the second set to be hidden again...
Also I know I should have renamed the Label/TexBoxes to make it easer but I was adding things and making it up as I went along...
I'm using Excel 2010 on windows 7.
Code: Sub UnHide_NewRoutings() If (Engineering.ComboBox2.value) = "0" Then Engineering.Label4.Visible = False Engineering.TextBox5.Visible = False Engineering.Label9.Visible = False Engineering.TextBox9.Visible = False
I have a bar graph in excel 2010 and the vertical access is stuck in the middle of the graph. When I right click on the axis and select "format axis" I have an option to set where the horizontal axis crosses but never the vertical.
I have been given a task to create a line graph who has 10 categories and each category has 5 different values. I need to plot a line graph, so that those 10 categories should appear on the Y-axis instead of X-axis.
How can I put another label under each bar (NOT outside end or inside end or any additional label. This is an actual label? For example, under the first blue bar labeled 56.7%, I also want to put N = 50 below the X-axis, above "Optimal." I also want to put N = 25 for the red bar immediately next to it labeled at 75.7%.
This is not a label, as it is below the X-axis.
An example of this can be found here (scroll down for second chart)
Using the table, draw a stacked chart that has both the project name (A, B etc) and Month on the x-axis (below all the projects). the stacked chart should contain the count for cat1, cat2, cat3 and cat 4 for each project (in different but consistent numbers for each month).
I need this for a presentation today,

I'm trying to plot a function with specific values marked on the X axis (or at least distributed according to the said values). Namely, I have something like this:
And while it does plot the Y's as I want them to be plotted, X'es are just used as labels, which causes 0 and 100 to be equally apart as 933,9 and 944. How can I plot it, then, so that I simply select my desired Y values, their corresponding X values and get the plotted function?
I want to create grouped labels on a chart x-axis of the type created automatically when creating a pivot chart. For example: I have projects, samples and sample yields. There are multiple samples in a project so I have a sheet that looks something like this below:-
I would like to create a chart that has Project and Sample as the x-axis where the samples are all grouped into their project. Pivot charts do this nicely, but how to do it without a pivot chart? As you will see from the attached file I can get both Project and Sample on the x-axis, but the Projects are overlapping.
I have a chart that feeds from dynamic ranges which contain whole rows of null enteries displayed as #N/A. The charts do not plot these enteries (as it shouldn't) however it does display the category label even if it too is #N/A. Is it possible to remove the category label if all data for that row is null. ie the label is also removed from the chart.
All I want to do is color the numbers on both the primary and secondary axis. Primary i want the shade of blue below. Secondary I want the shade of green below. Only the primary axis part of the code does its job. The secondary axis remains black. The code does complete without errors. Excel 2010.
sub color_axis() ActiveChart.Axes(xlValue).TickLabels.Font.Color = RGB(38, 40, 118) ActiveChart.Axes(xlSecondary).TickLabels.Font.Color = RGB(0, 153, 0) end sub
I've recently been making a macro in visual basic that loops through all my excel files and replaces an old company name to a new company name and It's working great, well except for one thing... It always misses one string in the file and it leaves me with 90% of the file corrected. I think that the string might be a part of a merged range so Range.Find is not able to find it. I was suggested to use this code:
Because that's the code that is generated when using the replace function in MS Excel 2010, but I keep getting syntax errors?
I have a data set where a number of pieces of technology are listed in rows. For each piece of technology it can relate to a "Network" or a "Terminal" and the columns are yes/no as follows:
Tech Network? Terminal?
Tech 1 Yes No Tech 2 Yes Yes Tech 3 No No Tech 4 No Yes
When I plot this on a pivot chart, I get the attached chart, where the x-axis relate to the hierarchies, i.e. Yes/Yes, Yes/No, No/Yes or No/No. As you can imagine, this is not very useful for the viewer as it's not clear what the yeses and nos refer to. It would be much better if I could rename the axis labels: "both"; "network only"; "terminal only"; or "neither".
Is this possible? And is there a solution that doesn't require me to change the source data? I'm happy to use a power pivot if that would make things easier.
I am putting together a graph and my manager wants the companies with a zero value in the bar chart to stand out (0 = really good). The only thing I could think of was making the individual x-axis label's font turn green if value was zero. Is there any way to accomplish this? (Additional: This chart will be updated every month with new data so I do not want to change by hand every month).
Has anyone ever succeeded in offsetting category labels in a chart by surpressing the first category label. I am plotting monthly financial data over several years and want to show category labels for the month ends which coincide with quarterly month ends (i.e Mar-06, Jun-06, Sep-06, Dec-06). If I select 2 tick marks between categories I get Jan-06, Apr-06, Jul-06, Oct-6) because my first month and category label is Jan-06. Is there a way to offset displaying the first category label by two tick marks and start with Mar-06 and then go every two tick marks between category labels?
Is it possible to hide some of the number labels on an axis; e.g. in on the chart below to hide the X-axis label 96? Or only start numbering from 97 while the chart displays from 96. Auto Merged Post;Well I have a solution to hiding the first value on the excel X axis values labels just using a custom number format;
but is there anyway of formating more than a couple of the number labels individually?
I am trying to add a calendar picker to Excel 2010. Everything I read online says that it is possible, you just need to use the ActiveX control "Microsoft Date and Time Picker Control 6.0", and that it should be listed under Developer Tab -> Insert -> More Controls ->... But it's not listed.
I also tried downloading the Microsoft Windows Common Controls-2 6.0, but when I tried to add it to Excel using "Register Custom...", it says "Cannot register this control".
