Make Chart Series Dynamic

Oct 3, 2007

I would like to update a chart after I have updated the underlying data just by clicking a button and displaying the updated date in the chart. Does anyone know how to do this? Currently I am having to manually click on the graphs line in the chart, which highlights the columns data, then manually extend this for the chart to update. And then I am manually typing in a date cell in the chart. There MUST be a cool way to do this.

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

Make Chart Series Open Ended?

Jan 7, 2013

In a chart series, I have and end number for a row that I have been updating manually everytime I enter a new fuel tank fillup. Is there a simple way with the chart series to just say always go to the last data in the specified column?

See my example here, instead of the 137 in the series is there someway to just say "last data row"?

Making Chart Series Dynamic?

Jun 6, 2012

I am looking for a quick way to create a number charts using data from multiple sheets.

I have 12 sheets Apr - Mar that contain data in identical format. I also have sheets 12 sheets Apr Charts - Mar Charts, I need to create a number of charts on each sheet for the relevant month. To avoid having to create a ridiculous number of charts, I thought I would try to dynamically change the chart data series based on a value in say cell A1.

For example if cell A1 of the Apr Charts sheet = Apr, the chart will show the data for Apr.

The idea is that I can copy the Apr Charts sheet the required number of times and replace the value in A1, and my charts will update dynamically. I need to have seperate sheets for each of the monthly charts.

Dynamic Chart Series Data

Oct 25, 2007

I have a chart with Data Series being dynamic ranges. There is only one series and x & y each have a dynamic range. I need to be able to include Series Name as a dynamic range.

For example. I have 3 rows of values with 3 columns.

Col 1 Col 2 Col 3
Name X-Val Y-Val
A 1 3
B 4 6
C 8 0

I now need a chart that has 1 series with a x range of col2 and a y range of column 3 but a corresponding name equal to Col 1. So when I move my mouse over each point I get the series name. E.G. I hover over poing 1,3 I show the name as A. Or I hover over point 8,0 I get C.

If it isnt possible using the ranges the way I am, then I would be looking for a possible solution. I am sure I could do this by some sort of loop but not quite sure given the number of rows constantly changes.

Dynamic Chart Error For Multiple Series

Jan 17, 2014

I have created a dynamic chart for multiple series. I have created this using the offset function and have named 20 ranges. The problem I have is that if only 19 of the 20 named ranges are populated it reads that the worksheet contains one or more invalid references.

Is there a way to stop this from happening?

Create Chart Using Dynamic Named Ranges For Series

Jul 27, 2012

I've created my dynamic named ranges using the OFFSET function, ex.


I'm now trying to get my chart to use that range. I read at [URL] .... that I need to make sure my series reference is a fully qualified reference. So I've entered that series reference using the name of the workbook followed by the range name (=2012-PIRS.xlsx!SAM_CLAR2DEL). I have two copies of my workbook (one as xlsm with VBA project, and one with xlsx without VBA) and I can't get Excel to accept the series value in either workbook.

The formula you typed contains an error. Try one of the following:
- Make sure you've included all parentheses and required arguments.
- To use a function, click Insert Function on the Formulas tab (in the Function Library group).
- If you include a reference to another sheet or workbook, verify that the reference is correct.
- If you are not trying to enter a formula, avoid.........

Dynamic Named Range In Chart Data Series

Nov 30, 2006

I am attempting to use a dynamic named range in a chart data series as described in Excel Hacks (Hack #42 and Hack #52).

Using Insert|Name|Define I have created a named range called CashFlowSaleChartDataRange that is set to the following value:

=OFFSET('Cash Flow-Sale'!$O$10,0,0,NumFlows,1)

When I subsequently assign a reference to this named range in the data series dialog it will accept the answer and my chart will adjust to reflect the updated range. However, if I return to the data series dialog, I now see the range address returned by the OFFSET function rather than the named range reference.

How To Make A Chart Using A Dynamic Range

Apr 17, 2014

I have never used charts in excel unfortunately. I just finished watching a few tutorials but still a little confused. I have a WS with a list of items I want to make various charts of how do you make a chart that adjusts when new items are added? (thus dynamic data) Do you need a macro to do this or is it just standard by defining a range within that sheet?

Excel 2003 :: Dynamic Named Range Of Non-contiguous Cells Suitable For Chart Series Reference

Nov 11, 2012

I am running Excel 2003 on a Win7 system.

Here is my situation:

Each of my data sets spans roughly 75 columns by 250 rows at present, but this could expand. The first 7 rows contain metadata. Columns 2-25 or so contain the raw data, from which everything to the right is calculated. The data sets have most columns in common, but not necessarily all.

In order to tease out the most meaningful information from my data, I frequently sort all or part of it based on varying criteria. When I find a useful sorting criterion, I create a new column with a header that describes the criterion and populate it with a formula that returns a 1 if the condition of interest is met for that row, or a 0 if it is not. For example, if I am doing this in column AA, I might enter


and copy it down to the end of the data. The resulting vector of 1s and 0s quickly re-identify data that meets that criterion even after subsequent resorting. It also makes locating data that meets multiple sorting criteria extremely simple. Essentially, I create a truth table.

Cell $AA$4 in the above example contains a "comparator" value I might wish to change at some point, which would change the subset of data the condition selects for.

Here's the first hard part:

For each data set, I need the ability to generate meaningful plots that includes separate series based on the criteria I have described. However, I also need to retain the ability to resort the data or change the comparator value without disrupting these plots. In other words, the plots must NOT change when the order of the data is changed, but MUST change to display the appropriate data when the comparator changes.

Here's the 2nd hard part:

Once I have this working for one data set, I need to be able to port it to other data sets (which are contained in other workbooks), so that I can compare equivalent plots from each. I also need to minimize the number of manual steps involved in doing so, to avoid human errors and excessive time consumption.

The only other possible complication I can think of at the moment is that, to this point, I have been inserting blank rows to isolate subsets that I do not wish to perform further sorting on from each other.

Right now I am angling toward VBA code that loops through the entire data set to generate base dynamic ranges using the column header row (row 1) as the names, and the entire column of data for the rangeloops through the truth table columns to generate "branch" row ranges for each of the sorting conditions,loops through the entire data set one more time to create "branch" ranges for each of the base ranges.

I could generate some code to accomplish a one-off solution for a given configuration of a single data set (provided there is not a list length limit in a chart series that I'd be violating)...but without a dynamic named range, I don't know how to get to something that would update appropriately. So in essence, I am still stuck at the dynamic range part of this.

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?

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.

OS: Windows 7

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.

Odd Chart: Combine Data From Multiple Worksheets And Make A Chart

Mar 26, 2009

I am trying to combine data from multiple worksheets and make a chart. I have about 200 keywords in every worksheet (about 50), and some of them repeat themselves through worksheets and some don't. For every keyword, I have an associated value in the next column that I want to portray over time (each worksheet is for a different period).

So what I need to figure out is how to be able to pick any 10 keywords from the worksheets and put them in a line chart where I can see the associated value for each period for every worksheet so I can compare my keywords' efficiency. The tricky part is that some worksheets do not contain the keyword and other worksheets contain the keyword in a different cell than the previous wsheet.

Dynamic Series For A Graph

Jun 30, 2014

I have a graph that auto updates but sometimes there is only 1 series and sometimes there is 2,3,4, or 5 series. Is there a way to have the graph update accordingly? and only have have the series that are valid be in the key on the graph. Currently the graph keeps all the series in the key even when there isn't any data for it.

Please see attachment. Use sheet 2 for the graph. and use the drop down menu to select catagory. this ia very quick mock up of the concept.

Add Series Collection From Dynamic Sheets

Jul 29, 2014

I've created one file: Mappe1_results.xlsm

This file ask in another file "Mappe1_ground.xlsx" for "B" and "N". Now one new sheet is created with the name "month-2014" and shows me which Category (B) is how often referred in one month. After that one chart is created for a better representation. This can be done for every month (which month is selected by the user over the button "Auswertung" in Sheet "Tabelle1").

Now I have a few problems / requirements:

1. If one user is using (maybe) Jan as his selected month, in the sheet "Auswertung" should be one duplicated chart of the Jan Chart., with no other (previous) series. Because Jan has no previous conditions (prev. year).
1.1 If one user is using another month (maybe Feb), in the sheet "Auswertung" should be one chart with both series of Jan and Feb and so one (for the other months). So that in "Auswertung" the chart is one comparison over the months. Only Feb/Mar/Apr/May/Jun/Jul/Aug/Sept/Oct/Nov/Dec have one prev. month.

For example: If one user write "Apr" into the inputbox and "Mar" is in the sheet existing, so in the chart of "Auswertung" should be April and March shown.

Some functions are set in my macros, but the problem is that the results are not equal between the sheet "Auswertung" and maybe "Jan-2014" or "Feb-2014". Because in "Auswertung" we need called all Categories (they can be found in "Referenz" - A).

All what I want is in "Auswertung" one chart with all present categories of "Referenz" - A and the series of the created sheets by the user.

2. The next problem is, every created sheet has one legend "Anzahl im ..." - this legend of every series should be shown in "Auswertung", too. So that we know which color is for which month, u know.

Dynamic Charts With Multiple Series

.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.
