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 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'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 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 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
In Excel 2010, I can manually enter the GetPivotData function (and it works), but with Generate GetPivotData selected / enabled (in PivotTable Tools --> Options --> PivotTable --> Options), the GetPivotData function isn't automatically generated.
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.
I have an Excel 2010 spreadsheet that I am using to save several numbers all in the same column. These numbers can range from the several thousands up to billions. The formatting I am using for these numbers is Number (using 1000s separator).
I am also using the spreadsheet to generate a text string for each of the numbers. I don't want the text string to show the number as it is, I want to shorten the number by only showing the first few digits followed by a "B" for billion, "M" for million, or "K" for thousand. For example, in the text string I want to show 1,600,000 as 1.6B.
In order to shorten the number I use the cell in the column to the right of each number. This cell uses the following custom formatting (which I found by doing a Google search): [>999999999.999]#.0,,,"B";[>999999.999]#,,"M";#,"K";
As you can see the formatting is quite complex (at least for me it is) but it does what I want it to do.
Here is a screenshot of what the original and custom formatted cells look like:
As you can see the custom formatting works and does exactly what I wan
The next column (after the custom formatted number) is where I put the generated text string for each of the numbers. As I stated above, I want the generated text to use the shortened version of the number (e.g. 1.6B).
To generate the text I use the CONCATENATE function with a reference to the cell containing the shortened number as one of the arguments. For example:
CONCATENATE("SOME STRING ", B1)
Where B1 is the custom formatted cell.
The problem I am running into is, the text that gets generated doesn't show the shortened format of the number, it shows the full number. Here is a screenshot demonstrating what is happening:
As you can see the generated text is "SOME STRING 1600000000". This is not what I want. I want the generated text to be "SOME STRING 1.6B".
I think I understand what's going on. When the CONCATENATE function references a cell it takes the actual value of the cell and ignores any formatting. (I suppose formatting is just the way you see the data, not how underlying functions receive the data.)
My question is, how can I re-write the CONCATENATE function (or use another function, etc. available to me) to use the formatted version of the cell?
*UPDATE* I have attached my spreadsheet as an attachment to this post (tackyjan_excelforums.xlsx). Please note that it was created and saved using Excel 2010.
I am using Excel 2013 and would like to input data into my spreadsheet using a barcode scanner. I've created some barcodes using an online barcode generator (Code 128-B). My barcodes are text as opposed to numeric. I initially tested it out using Access and it scanned the information just fine. However, when I try to scan in a code into Excel nothing happens, no error, no data, no nothing. Is there something I need to set in the options of Excel to recognize the barcode scanner as the input device? Or is there some other reason why the scanner might not be pulling in the data?
I have an export from a database that I'm bringing into Excel 2010 of about 30K records. Data points are recorded numerically and I have their associated text "value label" (what it would be called in STATA, for example, not sure what it's called in Excel). I want to create various charts/pivot tables with the data and want the labels to be the text label, not the number.
For example, variable ASSIGNMENT has the following possibilities:
1 2 3 4
Here's what each of those "mean" (I have this in another table):
1 - Sick 2 - Overtime 3 - Court 4 - Present
How do I create a chart or pivot table where the labels are "sick", "overtime", etc., and not "1", "2", "3", "4"?
I have a worksheet that is just a list of items with a location listed next to each item. I took that list and made it into a pivot table and would like it to have it list the items with each location it is in displayed across. I have already set it to tabular form in the pivot table options, but if there are multiple locations it lists them vertically and I want them list horizontally for printing purposes. I have attached a screen shot to explain.
I am using Excel 2007. I have a population that I used to create a pivot table. I am currently double clicking on the value cells to create worksheets of only particular "row label" categories. I am then copying the "row label" information into the newly generated work sheet name tab. This works fine when I only have a few "row label" categories to do but it is tedious if there are many categories.
Is there any way to automate the creation of work sheets for all row label values and also naming each work sheet tab with it's respective row label information. Here are images of the pibot table and the type of work sheet I would like for wall row label values.
As you can see I have only one attached file which has a two sheet tab, one is the "DATALIST" and the other is "FORM" in which this tab will be the one to be generated with blank highlighted yellow, and get data from datalist tab.....
I'm using creating a spreadsheet where data inserted into Sheet 1, is used to fill the blanks in a letter in Sheet 2. The formatting is all fine and I've managed to get it working with the data coming through to the correct place.
However there is the issue that parts of the letter are not always applicable to all people. Is there a way I can create a formula that say hides a paragraph of the letter (or a row/cell to be more precise) if a certain value is 'true'? Would need to be done in a way that allows cells beneath the hidden ones to move upwards so there are no large gaps when printing the letter.
I am looking for Excel to auto generate an email (to myself) when the following happens:
Basically, I have products with promotions which each have a start and end date. I have an excel sheet which we manually enter the promotions start and end dates into. I have a seperate column which has a basic formula to indicate the days remaining until the promotion comes to an end.
I would like excel to automatically send me an email to notify me when the promotion is due to end one week in advance.
So I will have a column which effectively shows the days remaining (number) until the promotion ends, when this number hits 7, I would like the email to be sent to myself stating (Model number XYZ. Promo ending soon).
I am trying to send bulk emails from my excel 2010 - however I am getting a POP UP. find the screen shot in the enclosed word document So every time a new mail is sent from excel we need to press the button allow Is there a way where I can turn off this warning.
I have a spreadsheet that contains an email address (Each row will most likley have the same email address but there are occasions when it could be different). Ideally I want a button that when clicked will open up an email, popoulate it with the persons email (that is in a specific column and row), add a subject and some text to the main body of the email and then attach the spreadhseet itself.
I have a sheet with 500 rows and 20 columns. I want to put an input box and a button on a different sheet. What I would like to happen is that when you put the criteria in the input box and click the button it opens the form for the row corresponding to the criteria and allows you to edit the 20 columns. Excel 2007.
