I have a workbook with two worksheets. On the second worksheet I have placed a chart, in which several shapes (text boxes) have been added manually. With the help of a TickBox in a UserForm on the first worksheet one can hide / unhide one of those shapes (on the second worksheet). By using the Macro recorder I finally came to this code fragment:
Obviously another part of the code is used to make the shape visible again. roblem: The screen flickers. And I want to be able to do this without flickering. Searching Ozgrid revealed that the use of "Activate" makes the screen flicker. Hence, my question: How can I hide / unhide a shape (textbox) in a chart on another worksheet without of using "activate"? r: Any other way to hide / unhide a shape (textbox) in a chart on another worksheet without flicker?
I have an embedded chart with a data series and a horizontal line that changes position (y-intercept) by values entered into a textbox. To make the process more user friendly, I would like to allow the user to select this horizontal line and reposition it inside the chart with the mouse. The new y-intercept of the line should then be displayable (textbox, cell, whatever). From what I have read on Peltier's site, I will definitely need to write a new class. Classes in VBA is not something I am particularly familiar with..
I have several charts embedded in a worksheet, and I would like to use the ChartObjects Method in VBA on some of them. That requires knowing the index number of the charts I want to work with. Where/how do I get that? (For example, in the VBA Project Explorer window the only listed objects are sheets. Is there an object explorer with a chart list?)
I have a spreadsheet that has multiple sheets and each sheet has a graph, at oresent if i have to add a new sheet and graph i copy the last sheet, rename the tab then off we go, but i alway have to remember to also change the sheets graph title. is a mechanism so that if I change the Sheet Tab name then the chart will use the sheet tab as a chart title.
So based on 1,088 sales, Cat 1 at 100 is actually only 9.19% of TOTAL sales.
I understand what is happening, the chart is giving the percentage based on the data inputted into the chart.
I did consider adding an 11th category to the chart, which was the total of Catalogues 11-15. Whilst this does give a more accurate percentage figure (as now all sales have been inputted), it makes the chart look ****
Is there a way of either adding the 11th category, and then "hiding" it, so that the chart doesn't display it, but uses it's value to calculate Catalogues 1-10s percentage?
BTW: The reason I ask is that I could be dealing with anywhere from 30 to over 100 catalogues. So it's not ideal showing the others in 1 chart.
I have a PivotTable linked to a Bar Chart. (see attached JPG for example) I do not want the 0% values to show in the chart at all but I do want to see all of the other percentages. I have been able to hide these values in the PivotTable itself by Conditional Formatting or custom number formats but they still show up in the chart!? how I can get the 0% values to be hidden or not show on the charts at all? I don't want to have to do this manually for every 0% that shows because the data changes daily dynamically. A VBA or Macro solution would be preferred.
I have a chart with multiple series which I am hoping to show/hide based upon a particular value attached to each series. I was therefore wondering if it was possible to extend the Series object class so that I could have something along the lines of a "Series.specialvalue" property which I could assign and then check to decide whether to show or hide the series?
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).
Attached is a simple chart and I would like Users to be able to tick a checkbox to show/don't show 'available' series. In the example If the User clicks for Group 1, then only Customer A's data is shown. If Only Checked Group B, then Customer B and C are displayed. If both boxes are checked, then all three Customer's figures will show. (Hopefully depending on what's ticked, the chart's scale would adjust accordingly)
Is it possible to hide some of the number labels on an axis; e.g. in on the chart below to hide the X-axis label 96? Or only start numbering from 97 while the chart displays from 96. Auto Merged Post;Well I have a solution to hiding the first value on the excel X axis values labels just using a custom number format;
but is there anyway of formating more than a couple of the number labels individually?
The jist of the problem is that employees are paid their normal wage up untill 37.5 hours of work. From 37.5 to 40 hours of work they are paid 1.5 times their wage. Any hours over 40 are paid at 2 times the regular wage.
So i need a formula that can work out their total pay. Im not sure what i could put in a dummy document to help you since it would just be one cell for their hourly wage, one for their hours worked and then one for the calculation. so you can reference any cell as an example and assume £6 as hourly rate
Working on automating a data update process for my department (well, for the Italian speaking analysts anyway). I'm trying to import data from an embedded PDF to my Excel 2007 worksheet - I only need the data on the PDF, but if the whole screen can be scrapped I can clean it up in my code.
My "Drawing" is embedded on Sheet1, later on in Sheet12 I click a button that'll send an automatic email to a user. I want to attach the embedded PDF onto this email if it is at all possible??
Code: Dim Drawing As Object After I've declared my variables I've tried setting the variable "Drawing" to the object, this is where I'm encountering my errors mainly "Type Mismatch" or Object Variable not set...
Code: Sheets("Menu").Visible = True Drawing = Sheet1.Shapes.range(Array("Drawing")) Selection.Verb Verb:=xlPrimary Sheets("Menu").Visible = False At the bottom of the code, this is where i pull in the object
I need to create a formula that will calculate a total if someone checks a certain box. (Each check box is associated with a cost. When people check the correct costs, the bottom should total the costs checked.)
I have a worksheet with Labels (from the "Control" Toolbox) embedded and I want to read and/or set the BackColor value in VBA. I can't figure out how to accomplish this when they're embedded on a sheet like this.
I have a worksheets (named Graphs) that contains 12 pie charts, 8 column charts and 4 line charts. I would like to create some VBA code to loop through all these 24 embedded charts and modify only the pie charts. I'm OK with the code to do the modification (which is to set their plot area size and also to delete the title), however, I have no idea how to do the initial loop to select only the pie charts. I'm sure there's a much better way then hardcoding in each of their chart names.
I'm using Excel 2003 and have a spreadsheet that I want to distribute to a handful of people around the globe.
I want some cells in the page to link to various PDF files which I need to distribute with the worksheet.
I can embed the PDF files no problem, but I need each link to the embedded objects to take up no more vertical space than one row of text (without an Icon) - ie I need to be able to access the object through a "hyperlink style" item.
I can't figure out how to do this, as the hyperlink function does not seem to permit linking to embedded objects.
I am trying to hide/display text by using form fields. I swiped the idea from a spreadsheet I obtained from a vendor and thought I would extend it to suit my purpose.
When I check the box for "table one", I'd like for the data that I have associated with it to display. When I uncheck the box, I would like for that data to be hidden. The goal is to be able to choose one data source and see at a glance which fields come from that source and what their names are. The formulas that currently exist for the cells in column I do a nice job of putting text in a field when the box is checked, but I don't want to have to rewrite the formula in the cell if/when the source of the data changes. It's a lot of long schema/table/field names. Maybe that's the only way, though...
I scrubbed and mocked up column J to try to demonstrate. It's sorta color coded.
And it might be that using form fields is not the best way to hide/display text based on source type.
I have a sheet with a dropdown box in cell "J1" which is meant as a 'Show only rows containing this value'.
Column Q, from row 3 downward has a pick box which lists the same values as the "J1" drop down box, but uses code to combine whats chosen with commas. An example of what is in a cell in column Q is "SeaHawk, BlackHawk, Squirrel, MRH", where cell J1 would be either "SeaHawk" or "MRH" or something completely different.
I need to only show rows, with text in column Q containing the smae text as J1.
I have an automated formula which i have to fill down to line 250, yet in the majority of cases i only need it to say line 20, and as a result i have loads of lines stating "Not Found" has anyone got a way to hide any lines containing either "Not Found" or a blank cell??
