# Shading Area Under Lowest Series In Line Chart

Oct 2, 2006I am creating a line chart with markers using 5 series of data. I want to colour in/shade the area under the lowest series.

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 the following code:

Sub Macro5()

ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 243").Activate

ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 243").Activate

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Delete

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(2).Delete

End Sub

However, if there is no SereisCollection(1) actually present in the chart I get an error. How can I work around this? I will need an IF statement I assume, just not sure what it will look like.

I have an interactive chart displaying stacked area charts for 2006 and 2007

I currently have 2006 in front of 2007, but as the user chooses 1 of 20 units, it will look better to move 2007 in front of 2006

I have a stacked area chart located on its own individual worksheet. I would like to use VBA to apply colours to individual series based on the name of that series. I have applied the following code which I found on the following help forum, changing it slightly to fit my needs: http://www.ozgrid.com/forum/showthread.php?t=91381

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

I am trying to produce a line chart, which will use imported data on a separate sheet (but within the same workbook)

The imported data can be of different sizes ie column widths and length. Some columns may contain only zero and should not be included in the chart, and will be to right of the data.

I have created a named range for the data series called ChartData using =OFFSET(Data!$C$1,0,0,info!$C$7,info!$A$2) - C7 and A2 are calculations to set column and row sizes. I have tried to use this as the chart's data series, but without success.

I have a line Chart and want to create a static horizontal/indicator line.

I cannot create a new series to plot this horizontal line as I'm using an external data source (OLAP cube) as source data for the chart.

Im plotting data on a Line-Column 2 Axes Chart which works really well with 4 data series (2 column, 2 Line) but when adding a fifth data series, the fourth disappears from view. I can see its still there cos I can display the values but I cant get the line to appear. The values for the 5th series are also similar to other series values so its not like the chart cant display it....are there limits to the number of series on such a chart?

What I need to do is to add a comment parallel to a 45 degree line on an excel chart, and the text box dosen't give you the option t have 45 degree text.

I want to add a user-form on a chart, which will have check-boxes that will allow me to select series(lines) that I want see and compare in a chart. Currently my line chart has 24 series (Lines) which makes the chart very difficult to view and looks very busy. How do I add list of check-boxes that will allow me to select one or multiple lines that I want to see at a time?

I would like to use the same shading and color scheme for other charts (not the same chart type) however I cannot seem to figure out exactly what color and shade was automatically assigned (it is not one of the standard ones). Is there some way to copy the fill without copying the entire chart format?

View 2 Replies View RelatedI 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:

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?

I have a series of numbers in cells B2 to G2. The maximum value of each of these columns is found in B5 to G5. Is there a formula that will calculate the percentage of each of the values in row 2 (B2 to G2) and tell me which is the lowest number based on the percentage? Example...

Row 2: 12, 100, 43, 1444, 141, 332

Row 5: 25, 140, 55, 3000, 244, 440

Which number in row 2, is the lowest percentage of the total possible points found in row 5?

B2 is 45% (12 divided by 25), C2 is 71%, D2 is 78%, E2 is 48%, F2 is 58%, G2 is 75%.

I want a formula to tell me in a new cell that "12" (in B2) is the lowest percentage in that series.

I am doing a Golf scorecard but I have been having trouble figuring out how to calculate the last 6 lowest scores in a series of about 30 scores. What formula to use? Series looks like this

I have a list of data on one sheet and a 'reports' page on another sheet. The reports page has several pivot tables and a pivot chart. I want the pivot chart to format the bars on the chart relevant to the series name. The series names are "R" "A" amd "G" for Red Amber and Green respectively, I want the chart to change the colour of the series so that it is the correct colour ie. "R" would be coloured Red, "A" would be Amber and "G" would be green.

Sub PivotLoader()

Dim Red As Integer

Dim Amber As Integer

Dim Green As Integer

Red = Range("H9").Value

Amber = Range("H10").Value

I'm holding a Reverse Auction where people pay a dollar to place a bid, BUT the twist is they are giving me a number that they how will be the lowest number but it has to be the only occurrence of that number (greater than 0).

During the party people can guess as much as they want to pay. I think i'll use a spreadsheet with their names in column A and go out in the row with however many cells for how many numbers they guess (so there would be blank cells in the overall range of the whole list if one guy buys 10 numbers and another only 1, for example).

So, i need a cell at the bottom that tells me the lowest number that wasn't guessed more than one time.

I've found how to FIND duplicates and the lowest number but i don't know how to write it so that it discards the duplicates.

I'm working on a criteria matrix in Excel 2010 that automatically plots a single member in a Scatter Chart based on the two values. There are 4 suppliers listed in Column D starting in cell D4 thru D7. The "x" value is listed in Column E starting in cell E4 thru E7. The "y" value is listed in Column F starting in cell F4 thru F7.

The scatter chart will plot the points correctly, however, there are two issues: 1) If I try to insert a data label using the "Series Name," or in this case, the supplier's name, it will lists ALL of the suppliers Column D. It will not list the single supplier listed in cell D4. 2) The scatter chart appears with gridlines as a 4x4 matrix with a total of 16 cells. The "x" and "y" axis both start at 0 and go to 4. I can shade the entire chart one color. However, I want to shade some of the cells with darker and lighter shades.

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.

View 1 Replies View RelatedI have two line graphs I plot on a 12-month graph. In addition to these lines, I have a range, high, mid, low, for target percentages. Currently, I have plotted the high, mid, low lines and made them dashed. What I would like to do instead of just having these ranges shown as lines (w/ the graph background showing), is use the area graph function to color shade just the area between the high, mid, and low. Is this possible?

View 2 Replies View RelatedI 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.

I want to use a macro to change attributes of a series in a chart. Unbelievably, if the series has been pasted into the chart from another chart, and although the macro can address the series and even return values (eg name) correctly, the selection simply cycles to one of the original series on the chart.

Q.2 Question related to Average

I am looking for a creative way to display a pie chart within a data point marker of a line chart.

My database has 3 value columns, Type1, Type2 and the Total (Type1 + Type2)

these are recorded per day (Date, in Column A)

I have a line chart that displays the total by date, but I want to find a way to display the percentage split of a particular day by type.

I was thinking to load the chart image into the Data point marker, but i don't think that is the best way as the data is updated daily and I would have to do it each day for a few line charts.

The other way I was thinking about was to have a generic Pie chat in the Line chart (Maybe in a corner) and the pie would update depending on way date series was selected or Mouseover'd)

the way that I am approaching it at the movement (Not the best way and by far not the coolest way. Is to have a list of all the dates in a column next to the Line chart and using some VBA, what ever date is selected in the column the pie chart displays the corresponding data. But eh challenge is that when there is alot of dates, I am going to be scrolling up and down.

I am using Excel 2010, but I cant not use the slicer's as the other users do not have 2010, they have 2007.
