I am not sure of the best way to ask how to do this. I am trying to efficiently lookup the X value in sheet A from the Y value in sheet B programatically as X=Y. The Values along the X and Y axis of sheet A change.

1) How do make values on x-axis as words? E.g. apples, oranges, etc.

2) Is it possible to have the numbers on x-axis in descending order? If I can figure out 1), I can do this as well, but it would be nice to know if it is possible to have the numbers on x-axis in descending order.

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.

how do you create a graph with a field such as vendors on the X-axis, but with dollar values spent on the left side of the y-axis and percentage of total dollars spent on the right side vertical axis?

I have a table as attached. What I have is 2 tabs. Data - is the raw data which shows the date and time of each application per person and the time cut and formatted for lookups. Sheet 1 - This is a rota showing each member of staff. Below the rota is a definition of each shift, i.e E = Early which is 8.30 to 5.00pm.

1. At the bottom of sheet 1, I would like the total of each application for each member of staff for the time they have worked for each day.

i.e if staff member N-R worked a late (L) on the 2nd, I would like the number of application taken on the 2nd for N-R between the hours of 10.30am and 19.00.

I have tried nesting a vlookup and a hlookup function but I just cannot fathom it out. I have also tried to use coutifs().

OR

2. On the data sheet I would like an additional column after the cut time to flag up applications taken for each member of staff during their shift. i.e if N-R takes 5 application on 22/12/2010 between 8.30 and 12.30, 3 after 10.30. I would like each individual app to flag up in its row if taken after 10.30 for this member of staff on this day.

The simplified example below is intended to calculate the sums from the data values in the upper data set and place them in the appropriate cells in the lower summary table. Example......

I would like to find a single-cell formula that will handle the multiple instances of either the X or Y headings (ex: there are two 'Yes' Rows) and still reach the appropriate summations. I would like to accomplish this without resorting to Macros or manual cell references if possible. I've acheived some limited success with array formulae so far, but find that the multiple instances of 'Yes' cause only one row to be summed before the formula finishes.

The goal of this chart is to show how sales are adding up relative to bonus levels for the month. The problem for me is in getting the right axis tick marks, labels and chart lines to match the values in Columns C and D. This need may be further complicated because the target amounts increase by a fixed percentage (11% in this sample, but it can vary).

I have data that starts from say, 17:50 hours. However, I would like the chart to start from 00:00 to 00:00 so it is a full 24-hour period. So up to 00:00 to 17:50 hours, it would be blank then the data will be plotted from 17:50. How do I do this? If I select the existing data from 17:50 and ask Excel to create a chart, the x axis starts from 17:50 (not 00:00).

I have to sets of values that I have graphed....number and dollar amount.

The dollar amount is in the hundreds of thousandths and the number is in the hundreds. I want to have two verticle axis. one on the left hand side for the dollar and one on the right side for the number.

Is there a way to limit the range of values on the Y-Axis on the lower end? Like I don't wish the Y-axis to begin from 0 but say 500. Is that possible?

I have a set of data values ranging from 650 - 850, but the Excel graph however looks too fine because the Y-axis begins from 0.

Whenever I make graph with this code it takes column A values and makes a line of it on graph...What i want is that it should be always on X-axis as reference and not a line on the graph.

I would like to know how can I plot my x axis of a chart with the maximum and minimum value that I have in this variable. Note that my variable is no going from the lower value to the highes one, it is random. So what I did is to use the autoscale of the chart, but it is not working as I would like. Any solution?

The code that I use is:

Code:

' TO GET THE INITIAL and FINAL VALUE and the STEP Worksheets(wsheet(27)).Activate ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(chartName(11)).Activate ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MinimumScaleIsAuto = True ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MaximumScaleIsAuto = True ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MajorUnitIsAuto = True xScaleMin = ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MinimumScale xScaleMax = ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MaximumScale xScaleStep = ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MajorUnit

'After I use them (xScaleMin,xScaleMax,xScaleStep) for several charts, in this way:

I am trying to make a chart based on the following values (for example) The X axis values are week numbers, the chart X axis must stop at Week 4, the data range still contains all these cells, but the chart will only show cells with values, If i'll put a value in Week 5, the chart will auto-expand itself to include week 5 too.

I'm trying to plot a function with specific values marked on the X axis (or at least distributed according to the said values). Namely, I have something like this:

And while it does plot the Y's as I want them to be plotted, X'es are just used as labels, which causes 0 and 100 to be equally apart as 933,9 and 944. How can I plot it, then, so that I simply select my desired Y values, their corresponding X values and get the plotted function?

It all works fine but I've noticed an odd quirk which I can't explain nor can I seem to fix. Here's the (reduced) code :

Code: Dim appExcel As Object ' Excel Application Dim chtPareto As Object ' Chart Set appExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application") Set chtPareto = appExcel.Charts.Add With chtPareto ' Primary category axis

[code]....

The category (x) axis title should be horizontal, whereas the value (y) axis title should be rotated. Stepping through the code, when I .SetElement for the category axis title, it appears horizontal as planned. However, as soon as I .SetElement for the rotated value axis title, the category axis title also rotates.

I want to create a bar chart so that the X axis scale is based the value in the reference cells. For example, a table created for running profile as follow:

The data table # of minutes2221 pace (MPH)4.06.08.04.0

The chart I need to produce. The data has 4 records, but the chat needs to show bars of total number of minutes. Picture1.png How do I do it?

I am having a problem when making a XY-plot diagram because I want text values on the x-axis instead of numbers - but that doesn't seem to be possible to get with this type of diagram?

I have a chart with percentages and most of them are >40% so I would like te values to start at 40 in the y axis but I would also want to have the 0% show (as it stands there is nothing there) It is a double y axis chart where the % is shown with just a dot and the other Y axis is the actual column. Im not sure if I'm making sense but I would just like to have the 1st value in the secondary y axis be 0 and the 2nd value be 40, and from that point forward scale in intervals of 5%.

So the values in the y axis are: 0%, 40%, 45%, 50%......

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).

is does anyone know if there is a way of marking the y-axis in a chart with data from a table, so rather than having a fixed segmentation width have the distances between the data points marked on the Vertical to conform to a range in a spreadsheet? I know you can do that for the x-axis. Is there any way to do that for the y-axis as well?

how I get the maximum and minimum values of the axis from and excel chart? What I mean is I want to specify a chart, and output in the same excel worksheet the values for the maximum and minimum of the two axis.

I have tried various searches, but cannot come up with the answer, although I have a sneaky suspicion it in here somewhere.

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 a table of data (say Column1 to Column 5) with multiple rows.

Column 1 to 4 will have the lookup values in multiple rows and Column 5 data should be picked up using vlookup or other lookup function.

I managed to somehow bring all these lookup values in (Column 1 to 4) in a single column in another sheet. I am now trying to use some lookup or other functions to match this single column and pick column 5 data in original sheet. Result i am expecting is lookup value in first column and next to it column 5 value.

It is basically a lookup wherein lookup value is spread over multiple rows and columns and result column is fixed. I tried using vlookup, but lookup value column and column number had to change every time when i moved from column1 to 4.

I'm using Office/Excel 2004 on a Mac Mini duo running OS10.6.8. I upgraded to Office/Excel 2011 but I find the program so horrible I had to switch back to 2004.

The problem: On one chart, the Y-axis label values have moved from outside the left-hand axis to _inside_ the right-hand axis and within the plot area. I can't figure out how to move the labels back to the right position.

I need the two x axis to be pressure and solubility and the y axis to be velocity, with the data being demonstrated by a single plot (I have only managed it with two plots which does not demonstrate solubility's relationship to pressure ).

For example at a pressure of 200 PSIA (lower x-axis) and solubility of 0.024 mol % (upper x-axis) velocity was found to be 1 m/s.

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.
