Pivot Chart Object: Find Any Suitable Object To Choose From To Make A Pivot Chart In Powerpoint

Mar 21, 2007

1) i have office 2003 on a laptop. within powerpoint, i can create a 'microsoft excel chart 11' object. to create a link to the excel data source, do i have to go through the odbc sql setup? it works, but i don't want my powerpoint to be dependent on some excel file somewhere. what are the other options to insert/make a functional pivot chart in powerpoint with the data also within powerpoint? the data as sheet option does not result in the chart being a pivot, it's just a plain chart. it has to be a proper object, not an image paste or a chart that updates links with the excel file open.

2) i have office 2007 on my other laptop. i can not find any suitable object to choose from to make a pivot chart in powerpoint. what's the best way to go about in 2007 version?

3) am i going about this the wrong way with the objects? should i be after vba code?

Pivot Table With Dynamic, Updatable Chart, But Not A Pivot Chart!

Dec 19, 2008

My boss wants me to design a dynamic, updatable chart in Excel 2003. I initially made a Pivot Chart based on a Pivot Table which worked perfectly, but it doesn't look professional enough when printed (or viewed) and she wants me to approach it a different way.

So, I created a graph based on the data in a Pivot Table, and used dynamic ranges as the source for the graph series so that the chart updates when the criteria fields are changed for the Pivot Table. I then added two combo boxes (ie data validation lists) to the Chart sheet, and wrote VBA code so that whenever the combo box values are changed, the Criteria fields for the Pivot Table on the 2nd sheet are updated accordingly, and this in turn causes the graph to be updated as well.

This solution also worked perfectly, but now I've been told to create the graph without macros.

Does anyone have any suggestions? The requirements/details are as follows:

1. The Pivot Table is on sheet "PIVOT", and the graph is on sheet "GRAPH"
2. The Pivot Table has two criteria - School Name and Year Level
3. On sheet "GRAPH" there are two data-validated fields, School and Year, which only allow the selection of valid Schools and Year Levels

Is there any way to make the Pivot Table update when values are changed in the fields on the CHART sheet so that the chart also updates, but without using code nor a Pivot Chart?

Excel 2007 :: Find And Format Text Within Chart Textbox Object?

Nov 15, 2012

I have a text box within a chart tab which is populated with text values from a worksheet within the workbook. That part works fine however i want to be able to achieve the following example:

Current Text: Component Name - Notes

if there are notes against the component name i want the name to remain in black and the notes to change to blue

Aim: Component Name - Notes

If there arn't any notes then for the component name and the "-" to change to a light shade of grey

Aim: Component Name -

There are 26 components, each on their own lines in the textbox so im thinking either a loop where the cell reference is variable eg. ("CY" & i) or using the .find with a variable.

My code so far is:

Sub Chart_Notes_NTCA()
Dim i As Long, j As Long, Counted As Long, Total As Long
Dim Ans As String, Notes As String
Dim Cht As Chart

Show Missing Values In Pivot Chart (line Chart) Axis?

Apr 18, 2013

How can I add missing values to the axis in a pivot chart line chart? I have a numerical X-axis with values such as 0,1,5,8,14, etc. I have another set of Y values that correspond to the X values. If this was an XY-scatter plot I'd be able to plot X vs. Y and connect the dots for "gaps" in the X values. Since it's a pivot chart I cannot use an XY-scatter plot, I can only use a line chart. The line chart doesn't give me the ability to add the "missing" values, so it gives the impression that my data is more closely packed than it is. The data source is external to my spreadsheet, so I cannot add the values before creating the pivot table/chart.

Convert Layout Of Excel Table To Make It Suitable For Pivot Table

Mar 27, 2012

I have a very large excel data file, which I want to analyse using pivot tables. The problem is that while most of the columns are headed with the variable name (e.g. country) and have the list of variables displayed under that heading for each observation (e.g. Italy), the years are spread across the columns - i.e. the heading for column X is not "Year", but is 2003, with the next column being 2004, etc.

Is there a quick way I can re-arrange the data so that the layout is consistent and so that I can use it for pivot tables? I have way too many observations to do this by hand.

Pivot Chart Error: Unable To Set The _Default Property Of The Pivot Item Class

Aug 15, 2006

I have created quite a nice little macro that;
drills through a lot of key figures, updates a pivot chart and copies the chart to powerpoint.

However it crashes on one particular data set every time with this error:
Run-time error '1004':
Unable to set the _Default property of the pivot item class

The code where the debugger stops is the last line below here.

lngKpi = Sheets("Helpfile"). Cells(lngRow, 2)
ActiveChart.PivotLayout.PivotTable.PivotFields("KPI # (overall").CurrentPage = lngKpi

I can manually change the pivot chart to the keyfigure it crashes on and thereby workaround the problem in the macro. Also it works for more than 50 other keyfigures without problems.

Check Before If Chart Object Exist

Nov 11, 2008

I wrote a macro that selects 3 charts existing in a sheet and sets the axes to auto scale option. The charts are labeled Chart 2, Chart 6 and Chart 7 by default, the macro selects each of then and then sets the auto scale option.

Is it possible to use 'If then' statement to check if the chart object exists ? In case they do exist then macro works on them but if not then it goes to the next statement.

Or is there any other way to check if objects exists or not, because sometimes the macro is used for old files (template) and the chart objects there have different numbers and not 2, 6 and 7. So to use macro for both templates( new and old) its better to check first. This way the macro becomes more flexible.

Activating Chart Object In Protected Worksheet

Mar 5, 2013

I have a worksheet which is used to display analysis data to the user. The sheet will be further protected with only some cells available to the user. I've used the attached code to retrieve some data from the sheet, clear a bunch of cells to reset the sheet and reset a graph (the graph itself is plotted as a log-log with the 1 to 100 on the Y-axis, hence the resetting of data to 0.5 to push it below the axis and make it invisible ready for later data dumping).

The code worked fine until I protected the worksheet. I have set the charts to unlocked using the format option in the chart area prior to locking. When I run the code though, it stops on the line indicated with the error "Application-defined or object-defined error". I've double checked and Chart 7 is the correct chart, and it is unlocked according to its format properties.


'get date of survey and equipment number for retrieving the data from the archive
dateSurvey = Worksheets("Calculation Page").Range("B2").Value
equipNum = Worksheets("Calculation Page").Range("F2").Value
'stop screen updating
Application.ScreenUpdating = False


EDIT: Oops, I've just noticed that even if I unprotect the sheet, I get an error on the .select within the seriescollection stating "Method 'Select' of Object 'Series' Failed", and the code worked perfectly before. I'm completely lost now...

Pivot Chart Changes Chart Upon Refresh

Aug 12, 2006

I have created a pivot table and chart. The pivot chart consists of three sets of data from the pivot table. Two of the data sets are lines and the third data set is displayed as columns. I made the third data set into columns by right clicking on the data series line and selecting chart type. I change the chart type for that data set to a column and it worked great. The only problem is that when data is refreshed in the associated pivot table, the entire chart turns into columns with completely different formatting. Does anyone know how I can maintain the graph with the two lines and one column data set when I refresh the data?

Create Macro To Chart Data With Location As Object In Active Sheet

Oct 11, 2006

I have been trying to create a macro in excel to chart a selection of data and to output the chart on the active sheet where the data was taken (as opposed to a named sheet). So basically, I have about 300 worksheets with data, and I would like to have a button on each page that automatically charts that data when clicked, and outputs the chart to the page where the macro was clicked. However, I have not been able to figure out a relative reference that will allow me to make the LocationasObject reference simply the ActiveSheet as opposed to a specifically named sheet. See my code below, which references an output to a worksheet called "Charts". Right now, all of my charts are outputting to the sheet called "Charts", as opposed to the active sheet.

Sub ConsDiscChart()
ActiveCell.Offset(29, 11).Range("A1").Select
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Range("A1:B1").Select
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Range("A1:C24").Select
ActiveChart.ChartType = xlLineMarkers
ActiveChart.Location Where:=xlLocationAsObject, Name:="Charts"
With ActiveChart
.HasTitle = False
.Axes(xlCategory, xlPrimary).HasTitle = False
.Axes(xlValue, xlPrimary).HasTitle = False
End With
End Sub

Converting Data Into Suitable Form For Chart?

Aug 14, 2014

I'm trying to import data from a rather antiquated software package of race results and present it in a line chart showing each competitor's race result against the date it happened.

The problem is the two ways the data can be exported (shown as option A & B below) is very cumbersome and I can't work out how to create a simple line chart (like the second image) from that raw data. [URL]

What I want to do is turn this data into something like this [URL]

The only way I can think of is to convert/transpose the data into something like below. The problem is I don't know where to begin in trying to do that automatically.


I attach the workbook shown in the screenshots which contains sample data for 5 people over 3 races.

Example Workbook: SampleData.xlsx

How To Know Which Object Library To Choose

Feb 15, 2007

how you know which object library to add to references when you want to automate an application?

for example Adobe acrobat.

or internet explorer ( ie).

I know that the .dll for ie id shdocvw (an i know it's explicitly listed under internet controls) but how would i know this is it wasn't listed?

Also, correct me if i'm wrong, but usung the shdocvw.dll will only give you access to the main controls of Ie nd you would need to add a HTML library to do anything use full. How do you know if there are other libraries available can make the 'usefulness' of one library more useful?

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.

'Top 10 Autoshow' In Pivot Chart

Feb 1, 2010

Hi everyone - I'm just starting to get my head around the wonderful world of pivot tables and pivot charts, and I'm stuck ...

I've managed to build a pivot chart exactly how I need it to look ... except that there are 140 different data fields showing, and I only want the top 10 values to be displayed. The top 10 would then update depending on the Page Fields selected.

My searching for an answer keeps returning results that say "click Field Settings, then Advanced, then Top 10 Autoshow" etc but the Advanced option doesn't show in the associated Pivot Table - I only have 'OK', 'Cancel', 'Hide', 'Number' & 'Options'.

So is it possible to use Top 10 Autoshow in this case? And how would I go about it?

This is what the pivot chart looks like at the moment: ....

Pivot Chart Layout

Oct 10, 2006

I'm trying to Create a pivot chart from Data. I've attached a sample of the data I'm using. What happens when i try to create a chart is test 1-9 get assigned to Open which is fine. I can then drag Open to the position in the chart i want using the layout feather. I could then uncheck test 7 if i didn't want it or whatever. I want that same process to run horizontally for the numbers from 1-10 to go under the header WW so that i can unclick any WW that i don't want in the chart if you get my meaning. I included an example of what i'm talking about. Sheet 1 contains the raw data and Sheet 5 contains a small explanation.

I am trying to create a Pivot Chart. My data consist of staff whom had errors in their work done. The data has a time when the work was completed by the staff. I would like to generate a Pivot Chart that has a line chart that shows when the work was completed based on the time and can be sorted easily by team, date, staff ,shift and errors.I know the easiest way is by Pivot Chart. I am not sure how to accomplish this as I had tried with the Pivot Chart and it did not work.

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.
