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.

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 have a spreadsheet with golfers handicaps, golfers names down the left in column A in rows 3-35. Row 2 has the event numbers titles 1 to 18 (18 events in a year). i need a graph that has the person as the vert axis and the horizontal axis needs to be the event numbers, so i can read down for the person and across to see how there handicaps change from each different event. i have attached the data below.

How can I add missing values to the axis in a pivot chart line chart? I have a numerical X-axis with values such as 0,1,5,8,14, etc. I have another set of Y values that correspond to the X values. If this was an XY-scatter plot I'd be able to plot X vs. Y and connect the dots for "gaps" in the X values. Since it's a pivot chart I cannot use an XY-scatter plot, I can only use a line chart. The line chart doesn't give me the ability to add the "missing" values, so it gives the impression that my data is more closely packed than it is. The data source is external to my spreadsheet, so I cannot add the values before creating the pivot table/chart.

I created a bubble chart whose x-axis and y-axis show every 10th value between 0 and 100 (i.e. 0, 10, 20, 30...). The axes intersect at (50, 50) to create 4 quadrants.

I want to erase/hide the values on the axes (i.e. the axes will no longer show 0, 10, 20, 30... and at the same time, the bubbles will still be in the same place) to create 4 blank quadrants and make my bubble chart easier to look at.

Attached is a chart I am trying to create. So basically, I originally used a line chart but it didn't have the flexibility of the scatter chart, but i am having a very hard time formatting the X axis. First of all - I would like the line in the middle at the 0% point to actually go to the bottom so that the x axis labels aren't in the middle of the graph. Second the x axis labels aren't showing up correctly. They should be quarters: 1Q:02, 2Q:02, 3Q:02, 4Q:02... Finally, how can I show the correlation between these two data points plotted - the R-squared. THANKS!!! Auto Merged Post;I actually was able to figure out most of what I asked. What is remaining: how do I calculate the R-Squared on the chart? Isn't there a way to do it automatically in excel on the chart.

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

I currently have a thermometer chart in Excel 2013 that I set up with percentages along the Y-Axis. The thermometers are showing spending based on a budgeted number. Currently, the project is over-budget so I have adjusted the thermometer scale to go far beyond 100%.

I would like to have the percentages past 100% show in red along the lefthand side.

I am trying to format the colour of a column chart based on the value of the x axis (not the y axis value). Firstly I need to know if it is possible. Secondly I would appreciate any hints / VBA code that could be useful.

I am trying to create a chart that would show all of the Amount values for each Size value that is in the example data below. The Size column has fixed values. In my example the values are: .5, 1, 2, 5, 8, 13 and 21. The Amount column data is variable. Any of the static Size values can be associated with many Amount values. I was attempting to have the static Size values on the X (horizontal) axis and the Amount values on the Y (vertical) axis. I would like to have all of the Amount values for each Size value be shown directly above the corresponding size value, in one vertical line. See example below.

I an creating this type of chart in Excel 2010.

Note, I am still new to this forum and don't know how to post pictures or Excel data into my posts. I am also using dots (periods) to provide separation in my examples.

In excel 2010, I'm using the following to copy and paste values and formatting from a pivot table, but i lose the formatting (TableStyle2 = "PivotStyleLight8"):

I have a chart with percentages and most of them are >40% so I would like te values to start at 40 in the y axis but I would also want to have the 0% show (as it stands there is nothing there) It is a double y axis chart where the % is shown with just a dot and the other Y axis is the actual column. Im not sure if I'm making sense but I would just like to have the 1st value in the secondary y axis be 0 and the 2nd value be 40, and from that point forward scale in intervals of 5%.

So the values in the y axis are: 0%, 40%, 45%, 50%......

At the top of my worksheet I have a combo box which allows you to select a local authority name; and all relevant information in the worksheet is highlighted (using conditional formatting, extra series in charts to make relevant points highlight in red, etc).

I've added a series to the chart and changed it's type to line - then with the data labels positioned beneath the points on the line I can get conditional formatted x category labels - all outlined here: [url]

Because my x category labels are fairly long I've had to give them an orientation of -90 and make the minimum y-axis value equal to -200 to give enough room beneath the chart to fit the text in.

As I said above, the values below 0 are just there to provide space at the bottom of the chart, so my question is: is there a way to hide these negative values? I'm sure I've done it before, but can't remember how - I thought maybe a custom number format of #;[White]# would work, but it just inverted my text (white text on black background).

is does anyone know if there is a way of marking the y-axis in a chart with data from a table, so rather than having a fixed segmentation width have the distances between the data points marked on the Vertical to conform to a range in a spreadsheet? I know you can do that for the x-axis. Is there any way to do that for the y-axis as well?

how I get the maximum and minimum values of the axis from and excel chart? What I mean is I want to specify a chart, and output in the same excel worksheet the values for the maximum and minimum of the two axis.

I have tried various searches, but cannot come up with the answer, although I have a sneaky suspicion it in here somewhere.

I'm having issues with Excel's 2010 conditional formatting. Seems easy to use, but I'm trying to highlight values based on 2 columns of numerical data. Example:

Column F: 6 6 14

Column L: 3 NA 17

I would like Column L to highlight values that are greater than Column F in green. If they are less than Column L then highlight them in red.

Seems I was able to do this with Excel 2003, but I don't understand the 2010 version.

I want to draw a chart in Excel, in X axis Dates and in Y axis some other data. The dates which fall Saturday and Sunday will show in RED colour. Other dates will show in default colour.

I'm having trouble getting the dates i want on the horizontal axis on a chart in Excel 2013. I want 12 dates along the axis starting at 01/01/2013 then each month until 1/12/13 however as you can see the dates are 01/01/1900.

I realize all the numeric data was originally not in percentage format (a simple division without being multiplied by 100). So when I set the vertical axis to percantage format, it does display it as a percentage but with the "%" sign. Is there any way I could get rid of the sign? It's not necessary as the axis has already been titled accordingly. I'd hate to redo all calculations, multiply by 100 and then create new charts only to get rid of the sign...

I have a set of data for hours of work. I want to make a simple Pie Chart: % of Hours worked overtime, and % of work not overtime.

The Data Looks something like this:

Name,Normal Hours Worked, Overtime Worked David,8.0,3.2 Anne,8.0,1.3 Danny,7.0,0.0 Harry,8.0,3.0 Edward,8.0,2.3

So I want a pie chart that has 2 wedges. ~25% labeled as overtime worked ~75% labeled as normal hours worked

Whenever I put these values in the pivot table and use SUM, it is trying to sum based on # of hours matching, instead of by the column Name... so it gets divided into a bunch of different pie wedges.

how to link axis properties with a scroll bar (two scroll bars).

The idea is to be able to modify the maximum and minimum values for the axis in case there are outliers which might cause problems by analyzing the chart.

The Guideline in the scroll bar should be set to its maximum (all the way up) by Default, meaning that if there chart behaves itself well there is no need to change its axis values.

The same applies for the minimum guideline of the scrollbar but it should be sent all the way down by Default.

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 numeric data that has to be put on a log chart. but there is no option for log charts. so i converted my data to log and then drew a chart but i am unable to edit the axis intervals and starting axis value. whenever i change the value it gets back to its default value,ie 1. can anyone tell me how to draw log chart or how to edit axis intervals and starting axis value?

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.
