Colour Chart Data Points

May 11, 2007

How do i conditionally colour chart data points. This is an example of my data from which the chart is created from.

Salesman A 10
Salesman B 10
US Total 20
Salesman C 20
Salesman D 10
Philipines Total 30

When the chart is created, i would like the country total data points to be in orange while the rest of the data points should remain in white. I tried this code and it returned me an error.

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection("Average of Margin").Points("ID Total").Select
With Selection.Interior
.ColorIndex = 36
.Pattern = xlSolid
End With

I also tried the online F1 help it told me to use Points(Index). However i do not want to refer to the ponint with an index as the number of salesman or country could change. Therefore changing the index points.

Line Chart - How To Ignore Zero Value Data Points

Jan 13, 2009

I have the following chart that displays average speed for my bike rides (Green line). The problem is that I don't want the line going to points with no value or zero value. So, the first month would just be the point then, when I enter in an avg speed in Feb then the line would connect to Feb. Is this possible?

Limit Chart To Certain Number Of Data Points

Jun 3, 2014

I have a macro that runs every 15 minutes and stores data into a table. This table is attached to a chart and auto updates with the new data every 15minutes. The table will house historical data over time, however I only want the chart to reflect the last 96 entries (15min data points over 24hours). So, once i have enough data my table will be A2:A97. When A98 is populated, i want the data in A2 to be removed from the chart only.

Here is a breakdown:

A2:A97 is currently displayed on the chart.
I enter new data into A98.
The chart will now display A3:A98.
I enter new data into A99.
The chart will now display A4:A99.
I enter new data into A100.
The chart will now display A5:A100.
and so on.

How I can accomplish this? Does this need to be done in VBA?

Formating Specific Data Points In Chart

May 20, 2007

I have a time series chart ( dates on x axis , with the data values on y axis ). It is a line chart. So column A has the dates, and column B has the values. Both have length 100. Now, column C can be considered to be the "flag" column. If a cell in Column C has the flag set to true , then the corresponding date/data values in the chart needs to be highlighted or formatted differently

I tried playing around with conditional formatting of x-axis but could not make any progress. Do I need to create a new data series with the C column?

Also given that there are 100 date values, I dont want all x-axis points to be listed on the chart. I guess excel by default shows the date points as the user increases/decreases size. But I dont want the specifically formatted date points to be skipped .

Align X Y Data Points On Combination Chart

Sep 11, 2007

Following my bosses recent charting attempts involving multicoloured backgrounds, graduated bars, textured boxes, mis-matched fonts etc, etc, which frankly showed no information whatever, I was asked to simplify them.

I did so, as in the two attachments, but the response is now along the lines of "well, yes, but they aren't very exciting, are they?"

Color Chart Data Points By Cell Values Of Non-Source Data

Apr 14, 2008

I have a bar chart that was made from table 1 which has the value in it. I have another table, table 2 that has the name corresponding to the value in table 1. I want to color data points in a bar chart with a different color for each name I have in table 2. I also want to give a data label in the data points with the value I have in table 2 instead of the original data label from table 1. Is it possible to do it?

Conditional Format Chart Data Series Points

May 16, 2008

Background: I have a Chart sheet with a combination bar/line chart on it. Data is coming from a "datasheet". There is a combo box on the chart sheet that allows you to choose a specific office whose data you want to view. Pick an office from the dropdown and the chart changes. The data is a count of closed cases by month. The data sheet shows 22 Offices with their monthly data, along with entries for each month of the Upper Control Point, Lower Control Point and Mean based on the nationwide data for that month.

The chart itself uses bars to show the office's case count per month, and I've incorporated 3 additional data series to plot the UCP, LCP and Mean as lines for each month.

I'd like to change the color of the bars to be Blue, Green or Red depending on where they fall in the 3 lines. I sort of have it working, but I'm stuck.

The code below grabs the value of each series point and compares it to the 3 control points and does change the colors. I've figured out how to use the If, next to change from one series point to the next, but cannot figure out how to loop through each of the control points. As it stands now, it looks only at the first month's control point and uses that for each successive month.

I hope this is clear and I've tried to keep it as short as possible while still providing enough information.

Color Code Data Points On A Scatter Chart (2007)

Jun 12, 2009

Does anyone know if there's a way to color code points on a scatter chart based on their values in a "3rd dimension" (i.e. other than the 2 dimensions represented by the chart axes).

You might imagine a scatter chart that plots transactions by price (y) and units purchased (x).

In that scenario, it might also be nice to color code each point by the region that made the sale.

The only way I know to do this is to manually create separate columns of data for each region, so that each region can be plotted on the scatter chart as a separate data series.

But since I'd like to experiment with several color coding alternatives, I'm wondering if there isn't a simpler way...

For instance, Rob Bovey's "XY Chart Labeler" can add data point labels to a scatter chart...

Is there, perhaps, another add-in that might enable color coding of data points based on a 3rd set of values?

Excel 2007 :: Chart Disappears When Copy Tab Or Move To Another Workbook?

In versions prior to Excel 2007, I was always able to copy a chart when I copied a tab. However, when I copy a tab in 2007, the data copies fine, but the chart does not. Something similar happens when I try to move a tab with a chart on it to another workbook.

Excel 2007 :: Data Points - Filtering Date / Time

Mar 15, 2013

I have a set of data points with date and time shown in the picture. I need to take out all the data point that are at the 30 min interval. Meaning I only want to have the data points hourly only. What can I do to remove the :30 minute datas.

I have tried the find option typing In :30 and getting all the points but then have to replace, which I do not want to do. Need to remove them so they do not show up on the trends ( graphs) I made for them.

This is for excel 2007.

Seems I can't get picture up on the ipad, so the data points look like this

1/1/2012 0:00
1/1/2012 0:30
1/1/2012 1:00
1/1/2012 1:30

And so on for an entire year. Just need to remove the ones with the :30

VBA - Formatting Points On A Chart

Sep 11, 2012

I'm trying to write a macro that will format my chart data based on the corresponding cell value. I have the following code, which runs without error, but the formatting on data points doesn't change. I can't seem to get this to actually change the color of the data point in the chart.

Sub FormatChart()
Dim wb As Workbook
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim wks As Worksheet
Dim y As Long
Dim j As Long

'this routine will format the charts on worksheets "SL11730" & "SL14100" 'so that data points equal to or above 98% will be green filled and 'all other points will be red filled

'set loop counter to two (contract (4100) & retail (1730))
j = 1
'start loop
Do Until j = 3
If j = 1 Then strwkb = "SL11730"
If j = 2 Then strwkb = "SL14100"

Excel 2003 :: Daily Stock Chart AND Random Scatter Chart Data

Jan 14, 2014

I need to plot various data on top of stock charts.

This data could be irregular in date: it could be weekly, or simply random.

To plot this data by itself requires a Scatter Chart.

From what I know so far, you CANNOT DO THIS.

However, I suspect this could be done if I build a Stock Chart from scratch using a Scatter Chart.

Error bars can be used to make the tails, however, I don't know how they built the body bar which has the characteristics of a bar (border, and interior.)

But since I don't really need those two characteristics, I just need a wider error bar line that is provided in the chart edit window. I'm guess through a macro, there are wider line widths assignable.

Excel 2010 :: Add Pie Chart Into Data Point Marker On Line Chart

Nov 27, 2011

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.

Excel 2003 :: Filter Data In Graph / Chart (without Having To Create New Chart)

Dec 29, 2011

I have a spreadsheet created in Excel 2003 (which is what we use at work, unfortunately).

My employees periodically take a test to ensure they have certain items memorized (or are making progress to that end). The spreadsheet rows show all 46 of my employees, and their test scores. The columns are the dates that the tests are administered. I can create a line graph based on the chart data, and interpolate these data with no problems.

The problem is that there are 46 employees! 46 lines on the same graph make for a very cluttered, hard to understand visual. I want to simplify the view by "filtering out" some of the data.

I have an additional column in my spreadsheet for each employee's work area (Area 1, Area 2, etc), and another column with data based on first letter of last name (the values here could be "A-G", "H-M", "N-S" and "T-Z", for example). I figure i could filter my line graph based on these two columns. For example, somehow select just Area 1, and reduce the number of lines on the graph to 16. Or better yet, Choose "Area 2" AND "A-M" and end up with 7 employees (and therefore 7 lines on the graph).

Here's what i have tried:

1) Select the work area column, and use the Filter, which created a drop-down list at the column heading. When i use this drop-down list, i can easily filter the data in the worksheet by Work Area, but this is not reflected in the line graph, which still shows all 46 lines. The problem was that i forgot that i had set the Calculation Options to "Manual". Setting this to "Automatic" (or leaving it on Manual and pressing F9) solved the problem, as the chart now updates when i use the filters. Calculation options are under the "Formula" tab in 2007, or in Tools -> Options -> [either calculation or formula, i forget what it's called] in 2003.

2) Create several separate line graphs in several separate sheets. I wouldn't want to assign someone else the task of maintaining a spreadsheet of such inefficient design.

Set Transparency Of Individual Chart Points MAC

May 16, 2008

I have a VBA script that walks through the series of points on a chart and sets color based on other parameters unique to each point. Unfortunately, this doesn't see to work.

Running the following code, the .MarkerBackgroundColor and .MarkerForegroundColor commands seem to have no effect:

With myChtObj.Chart.SeriesCollection(1).Points(Counter)
.MarkerSize = 8
.MarkerStyle = xlDiamond
.Shadow = True
.MarkerBackgroundColor = RGB(250, 250, 250) ' These have no effect
.MarkerForegroundColor = RGB(0, 0, 0) ' These have no effect
.MarkerTransparency = 0

End With

Setting these parameters for the series as a whole does work, but not for individual points. Is this a known issue? Is this unique to the Mac version of Excel?

Conditional Formatting Of Bubble Chart Points Based On Bubblesizes

Jul 26, 2012

I am trying to format the colors of the bubbles on my bubble chart to Green (>5), Yellow (4-5), or Red (<4) based on the value used to create the bubblesize.

The problem that I am having is that .BubbleSizes is property of type String, not range like .xValues, or .Values. So instead of pulling in the value, I am pulling in the reference and getting a "Type Mismatch" Error. The reference of my data for .BubbleSizes is $D$5:$D51. Each row is it's own series and the list is dynamic, so I need to be able to support future rows without a lot of maintenance.

Here is the code that I have so far.

Sub DataSeriesFormat()
' DataSeriesFormat Macro
' Format Data Series based on defined parameters for Green, Yellow, and Red. Created by Derek Steinmetz 7/24/12

Dim val As Variant
