I am trying to chart a range of dates, for example. I have some boats that are on contract between dates a and b. I would liketo plot several boats with their contract date range. I have tried using a bar chart, but all the lines start at 0. I got it working using an Excel 2007 Stock chart, however, it is in the wrong orientation. I would like to Rotate the Chart 90 degrees, swap the axis, or find a better method all together. I cannot post the spreadsheet as its confidential.
I have a spreadsheet created in Excel 2003 (which is what we use at work, unfortunately).
My employees periodically take a test to ensure they have certain items memorized (or are making progress to that end). The spreadsheet rows show all 46 of my employees, and their test scores. The columns are the dates that the tests are administered. I can create a line graph based on the chart data, and interpolate these data with no problems.
The problem is that there are 46 employees! 46 lines on the same graph make for a very cluttered, hard to understand visual. I want to simplify the view by "filtering out" some of the data.
I have an additional column in my spreadsheet for each employee's work area (Area 1, Area 2, etc), and another column with data based on first letter of last name (the values here could be "A-G", "H-M", "N-S" and "T-Z", for example). I figure i could filter my line graph based on these two columns. For example, somehow select just Area 1, and reduce the number of lines on the graph to 16. Or better yet, Choose "Area 2" AND "A-M" and end up with 7 employees (and therefore 7 lines on the graph).
Here's what i have tried:
1) Select the work area column, and use the Filter, which created a drop-down list at the column heading. When i use this drop-down list, i can easily filter the data in the worksheet by Work Area, but this is not reflected in the line graph, which still shows all 46 lines. The problem was that i forgot that i had set the Calculation Options to "Manual". Setting this to "Automatic" (or leaving it on Manual and pressing F9) solved the problem, as the chart now updates when i use the filters. Calculation options are under the "Formula" tab in 2007, or in Tools -> Options -> [either calculation or formula, i forget what it's called] in 2003.
2) Create several separate line graphs in several separate sheets. I wouldn't want to assign someone else the task of maintaining a spreadsheet of such inefficient design.
I am trying to graph the following data in an area chart with line charts superimposed on the area chart. I have a lot of data (and a lot going on) so I'm trying to figure out the best way to show this in excel from a functional standpoing (i can't get this to work in excel!!) to also an asthetic standpoint (dont want it to look terrible or illegible). This is what I'm trying to chart:
1) Weather data (temperature) by region: So one region, would be: Northwest I would like the "area" (so a shaded region) to be the min/max of the temperature data for each month.
2) I would like to show the temperature for each year as a line graph on the chart - so you can see if a year falls in or out of the shaded region.
3) I would like to show a company's sales increases across the same months per year as separate line charts. I may choose to just show the biggest outlier year in the end... or to show 2006 (the latest data).
What I am trying to convery with the chart is that the company's sales is or is not tied to weather deviations. I have attached an excel file with the data. I haven't been able to use the area chart or get a two axis chart to work or get it to look even remotely professional.
I have created some charts for my work and one of them is a line chart that spreads across one year with values for each month. Well they want the graph to always show one month ahead of where we are out. So there is actuals in for Sep. but then the line graph drops all the way to 0 for Oct. I don't want to have the graph bottom out when there is a zero. Does anyone know how to fix this?
I need to plot percentages over time in a line graph in excel. I don't want to have to do a percentage equation in the spreadsheet, I just want excel to take two sets of values and display the percentage in the chart. For example, I need B1 as a percentage of B2 for week 1, C1 as a percentage of C2 for week 2, etc....
Is it possible to create a chart using spherical coordinates (radius, theta, phi) in Excel? I want to create something similar to this. I would even be willing to write add-in code to create the graph from scratch, but I don't know if that's possible. Is it possible to create a new chart type without using the other chart types as a base?
I would like to create a chart in vba which contains 2 sets of data, both using the same x axis. The first must be a line graph, the second a staggered bar chart. This must be represented on one chart with data labels. Also, how do I change the colour of the plots?
I am trying to figure out how to activate a macro from each item in a drop down list. I also need the macro to recognize which item is chosen and to use that items data (say cells C3:C11) to create its graph. I know how to create an individual macro that will create a graph for the item but not a general macro that can be used to graph all items just discerning the difference in where the data is (which item to graph). Is this possible????if so please include code (amatuer programmer).
I'm trying to graph a bell curve chart using the following data
Hotels per state Total
As you can see I have states and the number of hotels per state what I need not for statistical purposes but more for "pretyness" is to sort this data in a way that what you get is a somewhat of a bell shape curve graph.
I've been working on this for a couple hours and I am close to getting it how I want. Basically I want to have a rolling 15 month graph that will change according to the month you choose in the drop down tab. Example: I choose july 2007, the graph will show data from july 2007 to September 2008. I have the graph functioning, however my formulas are off (collecting the wrong data). I've included a spread sheet
one of my excel reports, i am using a dsum formula and plotting a chart against it. i do not want to show the zeros on the graph, is there anyway i can do that, i could not find anything in the tools -> options.
I have a macro that extracts data from a source workbook. The data is owerwritten every time that I use the macro. Now I have a graph that everytime I use the macro does not update with the new data, Is there a clever way to do that? The code for extracting from the workbook is the following:
Sub Extract() Dim myFileName As Variant Dim SourceWkbk As Workbook Dim CurrentWkbk As Workbook Dim testWks As Worksheet ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("CURRENCIES").Select ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.Delete myFileName = Application. GetOpenFilename("Excel files,*.xls") If myFileName = False Then Exit Sub 'user hit cancel End If................
I have a scatter graph that has over 100 curves that im need on one graph that at the moment i putting each x and y and name in by hand in series. I have been doing it for hours and have looked round the site to see if anything similar answer on ozgrid would help but im baffled
i was just wondering if there is an easier way of doing this
i havent really used macros but iv been reading up on it can i used it to do this?
I have added the table and graph and this is how i would like all the columns to look like its the table called graph that makes the curves that i would like to be able to add in quickly the rest im not too fussed about.
I need to plot a stacked chart. I have attached a sample of it. I need to plot, category As X and subcategory and and its percentage as Y (stacked chart). In the attached sample I plotted a chart. The problem is, the series name showing is not correct. It takes the series name from the top row.
creating a graph / chart using Ms Excel? I've been trying to do it myself but to no luck as I'm just a novice Ms Excel user. I'm trying to create a bar graph and combine with line graph based on these data. kindly refers to my attachment image for an example of desire graph. For line graph, it should display individually based on the given data. These are my daily data and I want to have an analysis graph so that I could monitor my computer's usage and its efficiency.
I am making a spreadsheet that will be used to track employee time usage. I would like to be able to create a graph of the time throughout the day that shows only whether or not the employee has entered an activity during each particular time slot.
EX: The graph shows the time from 8-10am in 30 minute increments. The employee has entered activities for the time slots from 8-9 and 9:30-10. When the graph is created, I would like to see times 8-9 and 9:30-10 filled (or, charted, or, however I should phrase it) and time 9-9:30 left blank (to represent that no work was done).
I have a countif statement based on certain criteria in a table which is reading off of a drop down list on a separate sheet.
Apple (a1) =COUNTIF(Table2[Fruits],+'Drop Downs'!A1) ...and the results are 3 Pear (a2) = =COUNTIF(Table2[Fruits],+'Drop Downs'!A2) ..and the results 0 Banana (a3) = =COUNTIF(Table2[Fruits],+'Drop Downs'!A3) ...and the results are 1
I have also set up a bar graph (this may change to a pie chart at some point) which is feeding from this. My question is, if I do not want to any results with 0 value to show up on my chart (both on the X&Y axis), how do i amend the formula to do this? I read in a couple of places about the NA() function or about just hiding the rows, but if this chart is updated "live"on a weekly or monthly basis, I would like to chart to move with the data simultaneously...so the numbers will change, sometimes they will be 0, others they may not.
I track inventory/sales for a very small sole proprietorship. I'm looking to track the number of items that I sell based on the text that I enter in a certain column.
Specifically, I want to have a visual chart/graph to show the percentage of each size/color of an item that I sell, as I sell it. When I enter the words "3T pink" I want the chart/graph/whatever to show another quantity of this category. As I sell a new item, I want the chart to reflect it.
The problem I'm having, is that the graphs/charts require two data sets, but I want the graph to calculate it for me! All I want to do is enter the text for specific items, and when the text occurs subsequent times, I want this reflected in the graph/chart.
It seems so much more simple in my head....basically I want a dynamic chart, not based on a static data set.
I am working on the evaluation of a survey. I had 212 respondents which could be divided into three distinct groups. I would like to present the results of a question in columns that reflect the total frequency count in percentages. At the same time I would like those columns to be stacked in order to illustrate the contribution each group has made to that particular answer. I have attached an xls file with the data and a demonstration of the outcome I am trying to achieve.
I haven't been able to create the graph so that the columns display the total count in relation to all respondents on the one hand and at the same time are broken up into the individual groups. Among others, I have read the thread: http://www.ozgrid.com/Excel/stacked-column.htm but that doesn't answer my question as the Total there is actually the cumulative total of the other values.
finding a function/formula for determining the breaking point (Yvalue) in a graph, that doesn't necessarely equals the maximum value of that curve!
So the curve in the sample is a stress strain curve (tensile test) of a fibre and at the end it breaks and the Y value returns to 0. I would like to determine that Y value before it is 0, so the last Y value before it returns to zero.
I thought of a formula like: display last y value before it drops with 90%... but I don't have a clue how to write it in maths...
I have a spreadsheet in the office which is completed and saved in a folder daily. Im looking to add a line chart onto the daily spreadsheet which shows the figures from the last 20odd days so that they can be easily compared.
I am trying to write a macro that will automatically change the source data for a graph. This is an existing graph that is on tab GraphYTD and the data for the graph comes from DataYTD. The number of rows of data will change monthly, but I would like to use the same graph template every month. Here is my
Sub SortYTD() Dim myBottom As Long myBottom = Sheets("DataYTD"). Range("B65536").End(xlUp).Row ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=Sheets("DataYTD").Range("F2:I" & myBottom) ActiveChart.Location Where:=xlLocationAsObject, Name:="GraphYTD"
I am getting Runtime error 91 - object variable or with block variable not set.
I have an Access database, with a table of jobs processed.
One column for Job ID (Unique), Date it was processed, By Who it was processed and Comments ascoiated.
I need to chart a graph of Jobs over a period of time. How many jobs done per date. In excel preferebly, I have programs like Database Plus for excel. And I am familiar with VBA. I can't figure out how to uniquely sort how many jobs for each date. As there are numerous job entries for on the same dates. I think it can be done with an SQL query or sorting it with VBA somehow. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Or can anyone suggest an application designed for charting with Access databases in Excel?
The user will select a range (example, B4-Z4). The macro needs to test each cell to see if the number is in a certain range (example, is the number in the cell between 21-40, 41-60, 61-80, etc? - these ranges will not always be the same on each worksheet). If the cell is in that certain range, that cell is a 1 for that range. Example,
B4 = 23 21-40 = 1
C4 = 30 21-40 = 2
D4 = 45 41-60 = 1
After all ranges are tested, it will be graphed on a separate worksheet with the x-axis being the ranges (21-40, 41-60) and the y-axis will be the total number of cells that fit in the range. The above would be....................
