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.

If the bubble size is 0-5, I need the bubble color to be green If the bubble size is 6-15, I need the bubble color to be yellow If the bubble size is 16-25, I need the bubble color to be red.

So, right now my chart looks like this: chart.png

As you can see the top bubble is the right color, but based on the bottom bubble value, it should be green.

How do I make this change colors dynamically based on the bubble size value?

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.

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 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 would like combine (overlay) a bubble chart with a connected point scatter chart. I understand that, without VBA, this is not possible. However, I understand that, by using VBA, the markers of a scatter chart can be configured as circles with their size proportional to values in a specified column. This pseudo-bubble chart can then easily be combined with a connected point scatter chart.

My question is: does anyone have any VBA code to share that shows how to configure a scatter chart as the type of pseudo-bubble chart described above.

I would like to combine / overlay a bubble chart and scatter chart with straight connectors.

I understand that, without VBA, it is not possible to combine a bubble chart with a scatter chart.

Unfortunately, I am a VBA newbie, and so I cannot write my own code (though I can usually adapt code to my specific environment).

My question is: does anyone have VBA code to share that will convert a scatter chart series (x,y data in 2 columns) to a bubble-style chart (bubble radius in 3rd column)?

create a Quadrant Bubble chart. I have found examples of using scatter charts but unfortantely those charts do not satisfy what I am trying to accomplish.

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.

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 the Lat and Long for each of several US cities. I want to use these to create a bubble chart that plots the cities and which I can place over a US map picture.

However, I have the problem that, because of the curvature of the earth, the city locations form the lat and longs are not tying with the map.

how to adjust the lat and longs so that they will correspond to the typical US map?

For example, the base lat and longs for Denver are 39.5742 and -104.8588. What formulas can I use to modify these to match the standard map projection?

I’m trying to take an existing bubble chart, paste new data into the sheet, then march sequentially from row to row, adding specific cells within each as a new series in the chart until I run out of rows. Below is my latest attempt (not working of course).

Sub setseries1() Range("A1").Select 'select upper left cell to start Do Until ActiveCell.Value = "" 'stop when you run out of rows ActiveChart.ChartArea.Select ActiveChart.ChartType = xlBubble With ActiveChart.SeriesCollection.NewSeries 'use these values for the next series .Name = ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select .BubbleSizes = ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select .Values = ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Select .XValues = ActiveCell.Offset(0, 9).Select End With 'go to next row, and repeat ActiveCell = ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1) Loop End Sub

I have a worksheet where I am collecting data and a seperat Chart. The first part of this code which adds a new row in my table works perfectly fine, but the latter part (based on a macro recording) does not. I need to specify the relevant row for the new series in the bubble chart. The colums are of course the same.

When you hold your mouse over a bubble on a bubble chart, it typically displays the x value, y value and size value. Is there any way to add other captions to display? For example, if my chart is based on sales data and I'm plotting a point based on ease of probability (x axis) and dollar value (y value)....I'd also like to see the initials of the salesperson assigned to that prospect when I hover over the bubble?

I am looking to create a dynamic bubble chart. To do this I am using offset to create the series formula which without listing all the data names turns out to be something like this (where 297 will adjust to the number of rows with data): =SERIES(Project!$A$5:$A$297, Project!$J$5:$J$297,Project!$P$5:$P$297,2,Project!$Q$5:$Q$297)

My problem is that by creating the chart in this fassion I am unable to get a unique name for each data point. For example, if row A looks like this,

A5: 1 A6: 2 A7: 3

each data point will be named 1 2 3. How do I either create a new series for each row dynamically or get the specific name from column A to associate with the correct data point?

how to incorporate another category and value axis to my existing chart.

1. I need to add a rank axis derived from my data column (C6-C15). This column should rank from highest to lowest and create a tie if any number is repeated. I have arranged the rank column in cells B38:L38 as they would appear. I would like this to appear on the top or bottom of the bar graphs.

2. Second I need to add the frequency of hits which = 3 derived from cell J1 This should appear on the chart were it is currently titled. This should create another bar graph colored green and labeled 3.

3. Lastly the numbers axis can remain the same as it appears on the chart or if it would be better to align as shown in cells B43:L43.

Im trying to create a simple 3D Bubble Chart macro, and as most people who've never dealt with this before (i think), i've hit a wall with BubbleSizes. I've attached the file im trying to get to work. The VBA is quite simple but an error occurs at BubbleSizes. I've read that BubbleSizes takes a different reference style than xValues and such, but haven't had any luck trying to change that. For those who just want to see the code without getting the file:

Sub EmbeddedChartFromScratch() Dim myChtObj As ChartObject Dim rngChtData As Range Dim rngChtXVal As Range Dim iColumn As Long ' make sure a range is selected If TypeName(Selection) <> "Range" Then Exit Sub ' define chart data Set rngChtData = Selection ' add the chart Set myChtObj = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects.Add _ (Left:=250, Width:=375, Top:=75, Height:=225) With myChtObj.Chart................................

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 got a set of data which is only 2 colums collecting data problems. The output i get is a time stamp and a fault. Im looking to set a chart up with the time been on the X - axis and number of problems per hour on the Y - axis.

I have some simple data and i want to create a horisizontal bar chart with 2 axis (X axis) the top one showing number of stocks number up to 270 and the bottom with Market Cap up to 1,200. (See attached). I set up the chart and it looks fine but it has only one axis so in order to create a second axis i right click on the blue series (no of Stocks) and go through the motions of setting up a secondary axis. However when i do that it ends up looking like the chart to the right with the Bars Cojoined (which is not what i want) I cannot seem to achieve 2 axis with separated bars

How to autoscale chart using VBA, so i can maximize the viewable area without using the default format axis on chart each time i paste new data to the table,

I have a simple piece of code that creates a chart using the the values in column A as the x-axis and the values in column E as the y-axis. The values in Column A are all dates in this format: mm.dd.yyyy. However, when I collect the x-values they always appear as numbers (1,2,3). Even if I format the axis to Dates, they appear as 1.00.1900, 1.02.1901, etc.

Here is the code (also, I would like a VBA solution but if this is with excel's chart tools, so be it).

Code:

Sub Macro2() ActiveSheet.Shapes.addChart.Select ActiveChart.ChartType = xlXYScatter ActiveChart.SeriesCollection.NewSeries ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Name = "=""Rate of Productivity""" ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).XValues = "='Sheet1'!$A$2:$A$4" ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Values = "='Sheet1'!$E$2:$E$4" End Sub
