Jan 30, 2009

i want to set the minimum to be 20 less than the minimum value in the data, and the max to 20 more than the max value of the data.

## Changing Values Of X-axis, And Descending Order Axis(x-axis)

Feb 8, 2009

Two questions:

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.

## Dynamic Setting Of X Axis Minimum Value?

Jul 7, 2014

I have a graph where dates are shown on the x axis. I would like the date range always to start on the date when I am updating the chart, e.g. sourced from a cell with formula =now().

## Automatically Setting X Axis Value For Gantt Chart?

Sep 26, 2013

I have created a pseudo Gantt chart in Excel (a horizontal stacked bar chart). The chart is driven off data I have in a Power Pivot model (Auto Refreshed) and the Gantt chart displays data which spans a fixed 12 hour time frame.

The problem I am having is that in order for me to get the chart to display correctly I must manually (daily) get the excel decimal values for my Minimum DateTime and Maximum DateTime and then enter those numbers into the "AXIS Options" Bounds Minimum and Maximum value fields. I would like to automate that process so that the Axis Bounds are either driven from the data cells OR are always set to a specific 12 hour window 6pm->6am daily.

## Create Chart With Names In Vertical Axis And Values In Horizontal Axis?

Mar 1, 2014

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.

## Bar Graph With Values On Left Vertical Axis And Percentages On Right Vertical Axis

Jan 19, 2012

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?

## Summing Matrix Values Based On X & Y Axis Values

Feb 24, 2009

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.

## Setting Worksheet As ActiveSheet

## Setting Repeating Pages In A Worksheet?

Aug 16, 2014

I need to prepare count sheets for stock take on my company and I have a long list for data with hundreds of locations. What my colleagues have been doing is to filter the locations 1 by 1 and clicking print because we want the page numbering to be 'page 1 of 3', page 2 of 3 etc. for each location.

For example

Location a has 2 pages we want it to be page 1 of 2, page 2 of 2

Location b has 1 page we want it to be page 1 of 1

This is so that we can detect if any count sheets have gone missing.

I want to be able to print everything at 1 go, without filtering the locations manually and clicking print as it takes hours to do so.

Is there anyway I can do it? I have some knowledge on excel but not macros.

## Setting A Single Worksheet To Manual Calculation

Apr 21, 2009

Is there a way that I can set a single worksheet in a workbook to always be on manual calculation, but keep all other sheet in the workbook set to automatic?

I want to be able to open the workbook, any calculations to perform automatically and then i will select the 'manual' sheet and perform these calculations manually. I also need to these settings to always apply each time i open the workbook.

## Setting Up Search Page In Worksheet On Document

May 21, 2014

I am trying to setup a search page in a worksheet on a document. I want to be able to search by an indicator (DID#), but there maybe multiples of the same (DID#) in the data. I want to be able to have each instance of the multiples displayed on the search page. In addition, I want to reference other data that matches that (DID#) in separate cells.

Please see below, I want to have a search area that I can input the DID# and have a return of the corresponding info for that row. If I search "123" there are 2 entries and will need both displayed. The data is much bigger, but this is just a sample.

Date
DID#
Location
Type
Owner

12/13/14
123
Anywhere
Flooring

## Run-Time Error Setting Worksheet Variable

Aug 30, 2007

The user is asked for one piece of information "Enter the ID Number.

What the macro should do then is go to Wks1 find the ID Number and change some cells as a result. This bit works.

Set Wks2 = Worksheets(strWks)

7 rows from the bottom.

My intention was to capture the the name of another worksheet which is held on the same row as the ID Number on Wks1 and call it strWks.

Then further down the macro set the value of Wks2 to that of strWks so that the macro will then go to that sheet and remove data from the row with the same ID Number.

I get a Time Run Error 9.

It just seems to be the bit at the bottom where I am trying to identify Wks2 using strWks.

Sub Macro01C_Auto_Resign()
Dim Wks1 As Worksheet, Wks2 As Worksheet
Dim strFind As String, rngFound As Range
Dim lngRow As Long, rngUnion As Range, strWks As String ............................

## Subcript Out Of Range Error Setting Worksheet Variable

Sep 13, 2006

Subcript Out Of Range Error Coming Now For The Code Which Works For Me Before

Sub WHideRows()

Dim rRange As Range, rCell As Range
Dim strVal As String

Set rRange = Worksheets("WIED PROBLEM WELLS").Range("A11:A110")

For Each rCell In rRange
strVal = rCell(1, 3) & rCell(1, 4) & rCell(1, 5) & rCell(1, 6) & rCell(1, 7) & rCell(1, 9)
rCell.EntireRow.Hidden = strVal = vbNullString
Next rCell

End Sub

i am using the code above to hide the rows which doesn't have any values in all the following Cells 3,4,5,6,7 & 9 or Unhide the rows if there is value in any 1 of the following cells 3,4,5,6,7 & 9 from row number A11 to A110.

The same code works for me before. But now the code is not working. It says below the error message

## Right Axis Derived From Values?

Feb 28, 2014

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).

## How To Plot X Axis Values From 00:00

Mar 15, 2012

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).

## Two Sets Of Values And Only One Y Axis?

Jul 6, 2012

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.

## Lookup Values Along An X And Y Axis

Oct 27, 2006

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.

## Limiting Values Of Y-Axis In Charts?

Apr 1, 2009

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.

## Macro For Deciding X-axis Values?

Apr 3, 2014

[Code]......

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.

## Assign X Axis Charts Values

Sep 28, 2011

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:

ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(chartName(11)).Activate
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory, xlPrimary).AxisTitle.Text =VarName
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory, xlPrimary).AxisTitle.Select
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory, xlPrimary).AxisTitle.Font.Size = 11
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MinimumScale = xScaleMin
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MaximumScale = xScaleMax
ActiveChart.Axes(xlCategory).MajorUnit =xScaleStep

' but if my data was between 50 and 250 it is plotting between 0 and 300

## Dynamic X Axis Based On Values

Dec 3, 2011

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.

Code:
Week # | Value
Week 1 | 1
Week 2 | 2
Week 3 | 3
Week 4 | 4
Week 5 |
Week 6 |

## Set Values To Be Shown On X Axis Instead Of Just Labels?

Mar 18, 2013

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?

## Setting Default Values In A Drop Down List

Feb 14, 2007

I want to automatically set default values in a row dependant on the value chosen in a list. Some of the default values need to be lists where the user can chose to update to a non-default value.

I have tried using a double drop down list. However if the default list value is changed then the dependant list value is changed, the default list is not automatically updated.

## Excel 2007 :: Primary Category Axis Title Rotates With Rotated Value Axis Titles

May 13, 2014

I've put together code to construct a chart

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.

## Expand X Axis Based On Cell Values

May 15, 2014

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?

## XY-plot Diagram (text Values On X-axis)

Dec 4, 2012

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?

## How To Make Y Axis Values In Chart Jump From 0 To 40

Jul 17, 2013

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%......

## Hide Minus Values On Y-axis On A Chart

Jun 25, 2007

column chart displaying various pieces of data.

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).

## Chart - Mark Y-Axis With Values From Table

Dec 18, 2008

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?
