# Histogram Bin Width Calculation

Jul 11, 2007

I am looking for an formula to calculate the bin width for a histogram chart.

I am thinking of creating 50 bins for the chart. The range (max - min) of the data can be from £10 to £5,000,000.

A straighforward formula will be (max - min)/ 50. But I don't want decimal point in the bin numbers.

I am thinking of using Floor/Ceiling function, to round the bin-width to whole numbers, but 10/50, 100/50, 1000/50,..., 1000000/50 all need to round up/down to different scales! for example, I want 100/50 round to 5, 1000/50 round to 50 etc.....I was wondering is there a formula I can use to calculate the bin-width based on the criteria above or similar?

## Adjust Cells Column Width Without Whole Column Width Changing?

May 24, 2012

Is it possible to adjust a cells' column width without the whole column width changing? EXAMPLE...I'm looking to lock rows 1-41 at certain column widths and change the column width as needed from rows 42 and below.

## Non-numerical Histogram

May 9, 2009

I have been searching to see if it's possible to create a histogram with non-numerical data and it doesn't seem like it's possible. Is there something similar where I can. Count number of occurrences of a string and organize them from most frequent to less frequent? There are about 60 possible strings.

e.g.
ABCDEFGHIJ
1ddhykygghd
2jlqqwertya
3ukhghjklzx
4tukyuuiioa

Then output the counts of each of the strings (letters in this case) present. I was thinking of just putting them in the same row or column and manually counting, but it doesn't seem like it would be that difficult have it automated.

## Creating Histogram From VBA

Apr 25, 2006

I am writing a macro that finds the prime numbers between to numbers chosen by the user. I want to create a histogram showing the distribution of the primes. I was going to use the Histogram tool in the Data Analysis add-in. My problem is in setting the input range. I do not know how many entries there will be in the input range. How can I write the argument so that it can be "dynamic" I can determine how many entries there are after I determine the prime numbers but I am not sure how to put that info into the Histogram argument.

## Histogram: Intervals Below Bar

Oct 5, 2006

I'm trying to make a histogram with the data analysis tool. The problem is that whenever I make a chart it doesnt show my intervals correctly. It puts them under the bars instead of between them.

## Histogram Intervals

Oct 6, 2006

I'm making use of a histogram to visualize my data. The only problem is that 90% of the data has a value which lies close to eachother but 10% is very different.

For example:

Interval-----Frequency
0-10------5
10-20-----7
20-30-----6
30-40-----0
40-50-----0
50-60-----0
60-70-----0
70-80-----0
80-90-----0
90-100----0
100-110---2

Now the histogram I will obtain won't look very good. Is there a way I can have an interval like 40 - ... which resembles everything above 40?

## Histogram From Weighted Data

Jan 12, 2010

I'm trying to use the 2007 histogram tool (or frequency) to show me the frequency of data, but my data is in a different form than required for either of these tools. Let me use the following simple case -- to show the frequency of student grades both tools assume I have a list of student's test grades. What if I instead have more than one column, e.g., "grade" and "number students with that grade"??

My application is actually different, but it's still 2 columns, a numeric property and a weighting factor (e.g., fraction of the total).

## Plot Bin Average On Histogram

Apr 19, 2012

On Histogram, is it possible to plot Bin averages?

In my data there are two columns, 1) File Size 2) Months and then I have created Bin(months) like 0,6,12,18,24

I want to plot average file size in those Bins. For example I would like to plot what was the average file size in past 6 months, past 6-12 months so on.

## Histogram From 1 Column Of Data

Jun 11, 2009

I've been trying to make this work with Chart Wizard and can't. I gave out 331 surveys and the data in each column is the answer selections for each question on the survey - A,B,C,D,E. I'd like to do a histogram for each column simply with the percentage of people that chose each answer selection.

## Histogram Data Collection

Oct 27, 2006

I have a large table (20,000 plus entries) and I need a way to pull out data that matches criteria in buckets.

For example:
April data (column B) that is from 0 to 30 (column C)
April data (column B) that is from 31 to 45 (column C)
... 46 to 60
... 61 to 75
... 75 to infiniti

Then do it again for May, June, July, etc. I have used DCOUNTs to pull this type of data, but it's a bit cumbersome. Any other ways to pull this type of data from the table?

## Histogram Parameters To Be Filled In At The End Of All The Runs

Nov 30, 2009

Those "False, False, False, False" parameters to run a histogram, whatever do they mean? Application.Run "ATPVBAEN.XLAM!Histogram", Range("Inputs"), Hist.Offset(0, 3), Worksheets("OutputSheet").Range("Outputs"), False, False, False, False

Through recorded code, I've seen that to create a histogram, the third False is a "True"... but let's say I've already got the blank histogram created. I'm running a simulation (where the inputs range is being updated with every run), and I want the histogram to be filled in at the end of all the runs. What do these parameters have to do with it? Having them all as false, like I've been told, isn't working.

## Histogram Analysis - Two Different Sets Of Frequencies

Mar 25, 2012

We were working on a set of stock returns using histogram option from the analysis tools. We have not been able to figure out why we have produced two different sets of frequencies over same set of data and one predefined bin range.

Only a few classes present different counts. Can this be due to two different versions of excel were used?

## Dynamic Histogram That Adjusts Bin Size Based On User Input

Jul 2, 2014

How to make the x-axis dynamically adjust with the number of Bins.

## Set Height And Width Of Cells

Aug 31, 2009

I am in desperate need of a macros that sets the heights and widths of columns and rows on a list of provided spreadsheets.

On each of these sheets:

MySheets = Array("FY09 Installation Support", "FY09 Install", "FY09 Purchase", _

## VBA Listbox Column Width?

Jun 5, 2012

I want to fill a listbox with n columns so there is no space other than the text in it.

I have tried this:

listbox1.columncount = 2
listbox1.columnwidth(len(activecell.text);len(activecell.offset(0,1).text))

Or:

mystring = len(activrcell.value) or refer to the excel column width

listbox1.columnwidth(mystring;mystring2)

but I get an error message.

Or max of list len or something. The default width is to big and specifying the length could make it to small.

## Locking Column Width And Row Height?

Jul 22, 2007

I'm creating a map like image with Excel, and I've set the column width and row height to certain dimensions. Now I'm entering in some text into them, and I noticed that when I added in 2 digit numbers, the column width expanded a little bit. I want to prevent this from happening, and still be able to enter in the 2 digit text (since it WILL fit, and it's expanding to keep that extra bit of space).

Is there any way to lock the dimensions?

## Auto Column Width Resizing

Feb 13, 2014

Lets say i type for now...
A1 = USA
B1 = Philippines

and then later
A1 = dog
B1 = cat

Is there a way that the width would automatically adjust even as I change the values of the given cells; meaning, if a word is long, the width will automatically adjust "longer", if a word is short, then it will automatically adjust "shorter".

I know how the "AutoFit Column Width" works but I don't want to press that every time my values change (words becoming shorter or longer).
