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.
Pivot Chart. I would like to set up something to where a user can click on an individual value on a pivot chart (currently a line chart set up with 4 data series) and somehow display some underlying data. I have a lot of information stored in a data worksheet that I can't display all at once, but if a user sees a questionable data point, he/she can click and learn more about it from source data, or even a new query of the data worksheet.
I have a workbook, which I use for different departments that displays a number of different pie charts and I have found that a particular pie chart omits a specific label repeatedly. The pie chart displays the wedge within the chart itself, but does not display the label. At the moment I have data labels with percentages. All other labels display, of which there are 7. I found a solution that fixes the problem each time it arises and that is to select Chart Tools/Format/Series 1 data labels and then Format Selection. When I then select any data label, I click on "Clone Current Label" and the missing label appears with the correct percentage amount. I use the workbook for multiple uses and rather than have it present as a template (*.xltm), it is a macro-enabled spreadsheet (*.xlsm). Could this be related to the problem?
Can Pivot Table chart add another data from another sheet? I attached the link for this file (Add data1), it is because the file consists of several sheets and I do not know how to show here.
I would like to add the data from the "Rate" sheet into the Pivot Table chart (Chart.PT). I made an example by using normal way (Chart.Case (9)), the column series in the chart is the one I added from the "Rate" sheet. I wonder if I could do the same in pivot table chart.
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 think that this is probably rather simple, but the answer is eluding me, I cannot find anything that helps online either. I have a set of data that looks similar to the sample below, however it is quite a bit longer. I would like the 'Effect' as the X axis, with the 'Score' as Y. This basically shows three columns, which is fine. However I would also like to use the 'ID' as the label against each plot point and I'd like each plot point to look the same.
The problem I am having is that to get the labels to show, I am having to add each series manually, which is rather time-consuming. Is there a correct (faster) way of doing this as I think I'm missing something obvious!
I have 6 pivot charts within a document. I use a macro associated with a button to refresh the tables and therefore the data displayed on the charts.
However, each time I refresh the data, the 'data label' font size also refreshes. What is particularly odd is that 5 of the charts are pie-graphs, of those 5 graphs, the font size only resets on 4 of them (with the data labels in a single chart staying at my desired font size).
I can manually put the font size back to that which I desire but I'd rather it just didn't change in the first place.
I've had a look to see if there's any noticeable differences between the 5 charts but there's nothing which I can find.
I'd be happy to run a bit of VBA to set the font size as I want it, if there isn't a better solution.
I'm working for a local authority who have been given a mass of survey data. In this particular task, residents of each small district within our area have been asked their levels of satisfaction with a service, and how important they think that service is. I want to plot these two values against each other using a scatterplot, and label each service.
Excel does not automatically allow this so I used a very good sheet from the forums here: Attach labels with names to the points in a scatter plot. It's the top file, and works well. However, I can't seem to customise it for my own data.
- Excel often freezing when I try to run it - Not all the data being picked up for the chart - Incorrect labels being picked up..........
I want to make a bar chart, When i use Excel and try to make it - i get a chart which shows the right column height but the Male and Female bars are BOTH IN 1 Colour. How do i make it so that male bar is blue and female is pink.
Im looking to create a bar chart in Excel 2010 where the totalnumber of widgets is 33 and the number produced so far is 11. The bar chart would be a single bar that represents the percentage complete (33%) with the chart maximum range being 100% which would represent the number 38.
Ive included a mock up example of what the data and chart would look like
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'm working on a criteria matrix in Excel 2010 that automatically plots a single member in a Scatter Chart based on the two values. There are 4 suppliers listed in Column D starting in cell D4 thru D7. The "x" value is listed in Column E starting in cell E4 thru E7. The "y" value is listed in Column F starting in cell F4 thru F7.
The scatter chart will plot the points correctly, however, there are two issues: 1) If I try to insert a data label using the "Series Name," or in this case, the supplier's name, it will lists ALL of the suppliers Column D. It will not list the single supplier listed in cell D4. 2) The scatter chart appears with gridlines as a 4x4 matrix with a total of 16 cells. The "x" and "y" axis both start at 0 and go to 4. I can shade the entire chart one color. However, I want to shade some of the cells with darker and lighter shades.
I have 6 columns. The 5th and 6th columns are the most important. The 5th contains a figure and the 6th contains a type.
Bascially I am trying to do a basic chart showing the following 2 things. A. Do a percentage chart of column 6 (service) but not of percentage of hoem many lines the product is in. Not based on percentage of how many times Apples are shown compared to other products. I need it to add up everything, then do a percentage of total amounts of oranges and total of for Apples from the figures on column 5. Also, if possible, the pie chart will even show teh actual total figure per product in each (or next to) each pie chart slice.
know the easiest way to do this (step by step) in Excel 2010 and then I can perhaps write a macro for the future?
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 am having problems creating a chart off of the following data. Each of the cells which have a numerical value are v-lookuping from another sheet. It needs to remain this way as when I switch brands (through data validation), the numbers will update and the chart should as well. Right now, the chart shows these values as zero. I have done this a million times in excel 2007, but now with 2010, I keep having this problem
Using 2010 - When I paste a chart I can initially retain the format of chart bar colours (Paste Special - source formatting). But when I select a new data source for the chart the formatting of the colours is not retained.
I was recently upgraded from Excel 2003 to 2010. I have some code that creates a 3d clustered bar chart, previously the chart's rotation was 0 and now it seems like Excel wants it to default to 15 degrees. I'd like to change the rotation back to zero, but Excel doesn't seem to see the chart.
I recorded a macro, inserted the relevant recorded code in my routine, but Excel doesn't seem to like it.
' begin code ------------------------------------------------ Dim Rng As Range Dim cTyp As XlChartType
Set Rng = Range(Cells(2, 1), Cells(11, 2)) cTyp = xl3DBarClustered
I'm getting a Visual Basic error that says "Run-time error '-2147024809 (80070057)': The item with the specified name wasn't found."
Excel seems to know the chart name, but doesn't seem to think there are any shapes (initially, a loop looking at the names of shapes in the shapes collection returned nothing; printing ActiveSheet.Shapes.Count returns zero.)
What is the correct method of rotating a 3d clustered bar chart?
My X axis range is small 1 to 4. but I want to show minor grid lines at 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, and 3.5 only. I do not want lines at 1, 2, 3 or 4. I am not sure how to achieve this. as switching on minor grid lines, included those at the integers as well as at the half way points.
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 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)
I am building automated solutions where graphs source data is based on outcome of formulas. In case of line graphs I use #N/A as result if no data is available or formula results into an error - this way the data point and data label will not be shown in the graph.
However this does not work for bar graphs - with #N/A, #DIV/0, 0 or "" the bar itself is not shown but the data label is shown (as #N/A or 0). How can I set-up my formulas so that if result is 0 or formula is in error that the graph does not display the data label.
Attached excel file shows same data in 2 charts - 1 line chart (=OK) and 1 bar chart (=not ok). The data for chart is pulled from 2 other tabs (week&month) and merged into 1 data source for graphs.
