# Line Chart - Remove Series Code But What If No Series Exists?

Dec 22, 2011

I have the following code:

Sub Macro5()
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 243").Activate
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 243").Activate
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Delete
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(2).Delete
End Sub

However, if there is no SereisCollection(1) actually present in the chart I get an error. How can I work around this? I will need an IF statement I assume, just not sure what it will look like.

## Make Line Chart From 3 Series

Jan 8, 2010

I have data:

Jan Feb Mar Apr May
2009years 56 45 42 50 62 - series1
2010years 48 47 45 48 55 - series2

I need make line chart from 3 series. First two are series1 and series2. Third is percent change between 2010 and 2009 years every month (series3). First two are easy, but third is very difficult for me, becouse I haven't row with percent change and I can't haven't it in my exercise.

How can I make it without new row with percent change?

I tried it with Data Source in chart, also formula in Name Manager, but it doesn't succeed

## 200 Series But Get (The Maximum Number Of Series Per Chart Is 255) Error Message

Aug 4, 2014

I run a large simulation experiment. I have a loop plotting data in excel of a user defined area. Because of the limit of 255 series I have allowed a maximum of 250 simulations (they all need to be plotted). But the length of each simulation is free. I know there is a limit of 32.000 data points in a graph and I have this as a condition too.

If I set the data range to 100 columns and 3000 rows the graph is produced when I plot by columns. (code below)

But if I set the data range to 250 columns and 1000 rows I get the above mentioned error message. Even though I only have 250 series.

After the data is plotted it is the code below that gets the error:

## Show Chart Data Series Labels On All Series. 2007

May 31, 2008

I just recently installed Excel 2007 and I would like to know if it's possible to change all data points of a chart at the same time. In Excel 2003, I would normally hold down shift while clicking on each of the data points to make a global change. However, it appears I cannot do that in 2007.

I would like to display each data point's series name. When I go to Layout on the Excel Ribbon, and click on "Data Labels", and click on "More Data Label Options", the actual Y-axis values are shown for each data point. However, I do not want this - I actually only want the Series Name, but when I uncheck "Value" and check "Series Name" instead (under "Label Contains"), it only changes it for one of the series. Is there a better way, instead of going through each and every single series to make this change?

## Line Chart With Variable Data Series

Jan 17, 2014

I am trying to produce a line chart, which will use imported data on a separate sheet (but within the same workbook)

The imported data can be of different sizes ie column widths and length. Some columns may contain only zero and should not be included in the chart, and will be to right of the data.

I have created a named range for the data series called ChartData using =OFFSET(Data!\$C\$1,0,0,info!\$C\$7,info!\$A\$2) - C7 and A2 are calculations to set column and row sizes. I have tried to use this as the chart's data series, but without success.

## Add Horizontal Line To Chart Without Creating New Series

Aug 25, 2006

I have a line Chart and want to create a static horizontal/indicator line.

I cannot create a new series to plot this horizontal line as I'm using an external data source (OLAP cube) as source data for the chart.

## Spurious XY Scatter Chart Series Adding Series

Aug 21, 2006

The following code is supposed to produce six series on an xlXYScatter chart. It produces seven with the seventh series being a repeat of the sixth but named series 7.

## Color Pivot Chart Series Dependant On Series Name

Jun 24, 2008

I have a list of data on one sheet and a 'reports' page on another sheet. The reports page has several pivot tables and a pivot chart. I want the pivot chart to format the bars on the chart relevant to the series name. The series names are "R" "A" amd "G" for Red Amber and Green respectively, I want the chart to change the colour of the series so that it is the correct colour ie. "R" would be coloured Red, "A" would be Amber and "G" would be green.

Dim Red As Integer
Dim Amber As Integer
Dim Green As Integer
Red = Range("H9").Value
Amber = Range("H10").Value
Green = Range("H11").Value
Range("B8").Select
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable4").PivotCache.Refresh
Range("D25").Select
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=18
Range("B49").Select...........................

## Data Series On A Line Column 2 Axes Chart

Feb 15, 2007

Im plotting data on a Line-Column 2 Axes Chart which works really well with 4 data series (2 column, 2 Line) but when adding a fifth data series, the fourth disappears from view. I can see its still there cos I can display the values but I cant get the line to appear. The values for the 5th series are also similar to other series values so its not like the chart cant display it....are there limits to the number of series on such a chart?

## Shading Area Under Lowest Series In Line Chart

Oct 2, 2006

I am creating a line chart with markers using 5 series of data. I want to colour in/shade the area under the lowest series.

## Angle Text To Follow Chart Series Line

Sep 3, 2007

Is there a way to add comment text at a 45 degree angle to an excel chat?

What I need to do is to add a comment parallel to a 45 degree line on an excel chart, and the text box dosen't give you the option t have 45 degree text.

## Chart - Second Series Starts Where First Series Ends?

Sep 21, 2011

I would like to have two series of data using the same X axis (date, formatted in months). The Y axis is in intervals of 100,000.

The first data series is historical (actual) data (i.e. Jan 2009 to August 2011). The second data series is forecast (Sept 2011 - August 2012). So i want the forecast series to start immediately after the historical series. It is a 'line with markers' chart. The key objective is that the forecast data looks visually distinct from the historial series.

Excel version: Excel 2010
OS: Windows 7

## Select Series (lines) In Line Graph By Adding Userform With Checkboxes On A Chart

Apr 15, 2014

I want to add a user-form on a chart, which will have check-boxes that will allow me to select series(lines) that I want see and compare in a chart. Currently my line chart has 24 series (Lines) which makes the chart very difficult to view and looks very busy. How do I add list of check-boxes that will allow me to select one or multiple lines that I want to see at a time?

## Delete Chart Series Via Macro Code

May 27, 2008

I have a spreadsheet (see attached) in which there are many series and i want to be able to delete most of the series except the first 4.

(The 0%, 5% 10% air voids and the 95% comp line)

iv got this code, which is attacted to a command button, which works fine to delete all the series but makes the graph a blank white box. id prefer it so it delete just the series not the graph "picture?" ...

## Macro Code To Count Number Of Chart Series

Jul 1, 2008

I have about 50 lincharts that I wont to update with VBA but they have different number of series. Some have two series, some three and others four. Is there a way to count how many series a chart has? Otherwise could I get tips on how to approach this problem.

## Change Order For Chart Series Collection Macro Code

Mar 18, 2008

I have a bar graph with 2 series of data. Anyone knows how I can specify the order in which they appear? code looks similar to the following. The bar graph shows the second series before the first series. How do I reverse the order?

With cht
.ChartType = xlColumnClustered

' first data series
Set ser = .SeriesCollection.NewSeries
With ser
.Values = someValues
.XValues = someValues
End With

' second data series
Set ser = .SeriesCollection.NewSeries
With ser
.Values = someValues
.XValues = someValues
End With

## How To Add Series Without The Graph Line

Apr 14, 2014

Is there any possible to add a series to a graph table without having the line in the Graph. i just want to show the difference for information and not in the graph?

i have tried some different things (like having the difference in white so it is not visible, formatting the Axis etc)

See attached picture. Excel 2.JPG

## Series Line Disappeared

Oct 10, 2006

I have a chart of type 'Line' that shows a KPI item measured quarterely. It has a single series that references the 'data' worksheet. Since it is measured quarterely, the months in between will have a null value. It has been working to date, but since I have added the data for the latest month, the series line has disappeared. Only the markers remain. The series line is formatted in a vivid blue.
I can't attach the spreadsheet because its 152KB. One thing of note is that when I select the series line, not all of the markers get highlighted as expected

## Series Line Not Correct After Split

Apr 16, 2014

I'm using this code to split a series line into 2 overlapping parts, so I can use different styles on them:

Code:

Sub backfillDataSeries()
'make new series in Port Historical Risk
'if there is a backfill date in Rolling window data
Dim cRange As Range
Dim i As Integer

[Code]....

This is how the line looks before I run the code:

And this is how it looks afterwards:

I think it prints mirrored. Can I get a mirror image of the 2nd line?

## Summing Series Of Maximums In Larger Series

Aug 22, 2014

I consider myself decent at Excel, but I don't have quite the depth of knowledge I would like. Here is my issue:

I currently have a series of 50 numbers for each row on a 300 row spreadsheet. I would like to write a formula that identifies the six largest numbers in that series and adds them together. So, for example, if the series was 8-6-4-4-4-5-1-1-0-15-3-9, the formula would spit out 47 (15+9+8+6+5+4)

How do I write that kind of formula?

## Remove Last Digit On A Series Of Numbers

Mar 25, 2004

I have a spreadsheet, with about 1,500 lines. In column A is a list of numbers that I need to remove the last digit from each number, for example in A22 is 02602726521 - I need this to be 0260272652. The numbers are all uniqe.

How can I remove the last digit from every number, without going in manually to do so?

## Chart Making- Chart With 3 Data Series

Jun 30, 2008

I have a chart with 3 data series. The series are located in columns A, B and C respectively. Series I is a general number anywhere from 0 to 100,000. Series 2 is also a number, but is is devided by series 1. So, if series 1 was 100,000 then series two would be 25,000/100,000 which is 0.25. Series three will always be numerator of series 2 or 25,000 in this example. The numerator, or the 25,000 will never change, so, in my example, series three will be a straight line across the chart because it is always 25,000.

In my example, the .25 is plotted on the left value axes, and series one is plotted on the right value acccess (secondary axis). Series three is just a line in the middle.

My problem is that sometimes the line, series 3, doesn't match the values in both the right and left values axes. So, if series one is 48,000, then series two would be 48,000/48,000 = 1, and series three would be 48000 - the straight line. The third series should be a line touching the 48,000 on the right and the number 1 on the left. It does touch the 48000 on the left, but is below the number 1 on the left.

## Change Chart Series Pasted From Another Chart

Jun 19, 2008

I want to use a macro to change attributes of a series in a chart. Unbelievably, if the series has been pasted into the chart from another chart, and although the macro can address the series and even return values (eg name) correctly, the selection simply cycles to one of the original series on the chart.

## Use VBA Variable In Chart Series

Oct 2, 2012

I'm attempting to create a dynamically built donut chart using VBA, but I'm having trouble inserting a variable to be used as one of the values.

The chart graphs 3 data points:
ASC GP - Located in cell T4
ACC GP - Located in cell AE4
ACT GP - variable called LocSumActGP

The code snippet I assumed would work looked like this:

Code:
.SeriesCollection(1).Values = "='Location Summary'!\$T\$4,'Location Summary'!\$AE\$4," & LocSumActGP

But it doesn't seem to like that.

## Adding A 2nd And 3rd Series Onto A Chart

Jan 24, 2007

I have the following code which puts a series onto a chart

With Charts("Test Chart")
.Axes(xlCategory).MinimumScale = 1
.Axes(xlCategory).MaximumScale = Nteeth
.Axes(xlValue).MinimumScale = Miny
.Axes(xlValue).MaximumScale = Maxy
End With

I would like to add a 2nd or third series onto the same chart using the same scale etc. How do I do this in VBA code? Whenever I add another line to add a series it just overwrites the first series I have shown here.

## Dynamically Chart Series

Sep 18, 2008

I have calculated data (the column and row headings are calculated as well) similar to this for which I need to create an automatically updating chart.

******** language="JavaScript" ************************************************************************>Microsoft Excel - test.xlsm___Running: 12.0 : OS = (F)ile (E)dit (V)iew (I)nsert (O)ptions (T)ools (D)ata (W)indow (H)elp (A)boutA1=
ABCDEF1 BalloonsFlagsCushionsPillowsStickers2Blue136013Red352104Green703245Yellow075056Orange558327White26073Sheet2
[HtmlMaker 2.42] To see the formula in the cells just click on the cells hyperlink or click the Name box
PLEASE DO NOT QUOTE THIS TABLE IMAGE ON SAME PAGE! OTHEWISE, ERROR OF JavaScript OCCUR.

The chart should update if the data is filtered; so if a user doesn't want to see the 'orange' row they can filter the data accordingly. There is a finite number of rows and columns in the range but sometimes there will be less data. I have tried to convert the data to a table and that works quite well except the legend keys persist: so if there is no data for pillows and stickers the legends still appear and have to be removed manually. Also, there seems to be a bug in Excel 2007 whereby the removal of a chart linked to table data causes a persistent error message to appear.
I know that I need to created a named range for the data series using OFFSET, and I have also read that I need to refresh this formula using VBA but I am now very confused and none of my attempts quite work.

## Each Chart Source Row As A New Series

Dec 13, 2006

my problem is:

I have a whole list of data which changes according to the users preferences
It comprises of a NAME, X Value, and Y Value and the addition of X and Y. (these all have auto filters on them)

The user inputs under these fields, as many rows as they wish (which will be around 20ish)

I want it so when i click a button "CREATE GRAPH"

it selects the highest 10 values (if there is 10 values, if not then all the values) from the 4th column (X+Y) and then creates a graph. i want each row to be a new series...

## Scale Chart Series To MIN & MAX

Sep 26, 2007

I have a Scatter chart that plots a simple XYScatter plot. The data for this plot can be very wide ranging, and for that reason, I use AutoScaling to scale the axes. Nine times out of ten, it works just fine, but it seems that when the X data ranges from about 5200 to 7200 +/-, the autoscaling does not calculate well (example attached).

Autoscale range will go from 0 to 8000, leaving a large area of unplotted graph space.

I thought the original issue was that I may be plotting zeros or blanks, but I've eliminated that problem. I have yet to find another range of values that causes it, but I'm sure there's some. What is it about the way that Excel calculates its AutoScaling that I'm missing?

What do you all recommend to eliminate this problem? Manually scaling it is not really an option in this case, as I want this to be completely transparent to the user for ANY range of data.

## Reference Last Chart Series

Jan 3, 2008

I am trying to create a chart that will allow the user to add/remove series to compare with each other. When adding a series, Excel gives it a name (e.g Series1) the macro is then set to rename it to a particular cell, however the name Excel gives the series varies depending on the order in which the series are added.

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(SeriesCollection.Count)
