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.
My pivot table shows Towns as the Row headings and Month as the column headings. When I do a Chart, I get Towns on the X axis and Months as Y. I want the chart to show all my May data in a stacked column, then all my June data in another stacked column, etc. If I pick "Select Source Data" the options are greyed out. What's a mother to do?
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.
I have some numeric data that has to be put on a log chart. but there is no option for log charts. so i converted my data to log and then drew a chart but i am unable to edit the axis intervals and starting axis value. whenever i change the value it gets back to its default value,ie 1. can anyone tell me how to draw log chart or how to edit axis intervals and starting axis value?
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
how to incorporate another category and value axis to my existing chart.
1. I need to add a rank axis derived from my data column (C6-C15). This column should rank from highest to lowest and create a tie if any number is repeated. I have arranged the rank column in cells B38:L38 as they would appear. I would like this to appear on the top or bottom of the bar graphs.
2. Second I need to add the frequency of hits which = 3 derived from cell J1 This should appear on the chart were it is currently titled. This should create another bar graph colored green and labeled 3.
3. Lastly the numbers axis can remain the same as it appears on the chart or if it would be better to align as shown in cells B43:L43.
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.
I got a set of data which is only 2 colums collecting data problems. The output i get is a time stamp and a fault. Im looking to set a chart up with the time been on the X - axis and number of problems per hour on the Y - axis.
I have some simple data and i want to create a horisizontal bar chart with 2 axis (X axis) the top one showing number of stocks number up to 270 and the bottom with Market Cap up to 1,200. (See attached). I set up the chart and it looks fine but it has only one axis so in order to create a second axis i right click on the blue series (no of Stocks) and go through the motions of setting up a secondary axis. However when i do that it ends up looking like the chart to the right with the Bars Cojoined (which is not what i want) I cannot seem to achieve 2 axis with separated bars
I have a simple piece of code that creates a chart using the the values in column A as the x-axis and the values in column E as the y-axis. The values in Column A are all dates in this format: mm.dd.yyyy. However, when I collect the x-values they always appear as numbers (1,2,3). Even if I format the axis to Dates, they appear as 1.00.1900, 1.02.1901, etc.
Here is the code (also, I would like a VBA solution but if this is with excel's chart tools, so be it).
Sub Macro2() ActiveSheet.Shapes.addChart.Select ActiveChart.ChartType = xlXYScatter ActiveChart.SeriesCollection.NewSeries ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Name = "=""Rate of Productivity""" ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).XValues = "='Sheet1'!$A$2:$A$4" ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Values = "='Sheet1'!$E$2:$E$4" End Sub
I am trying to create a column chart/graph with "Days Past Due" on the x-axis and "Quantity" on the y-axis. In other words, data from one column needs to make up the x-axis and data from another the y-axis where the bars will rise to meet that quantity. I was wondering if this is possible. I have not been able to find a way to make it work so far. I know there is a way to do it for a line graph through XY scatter, but I need a column chart.
Probably is in the wrong forum, let me ask a question to justify it being here. How can I force the y-axis min & max to be a particular number. If that isn't possible, how can I add a straight line to indicate the min & max?
How can I turn this into a dual axis chart whereby it shows the number of current stores open (like it does right now) as a bar chart. But also as a line chart shows the store potential (%) - so for example, PSUN has 960 current stores and has a 96% store penetration rate.
I would like to create a bar chart which is linked to a drop down box (from data validation) that allows me to choose of the 3 sets of data to show in the x axis.
So if i choose "HALF YEAR", the bar chart will have two bars (one is "jan-jul" the other is "jul-dec") with the green section data if i choose "QUARTER YEAR", the bar chart will have four bars ("jan-mar", "apr-jun", "jul-sep", "oct-dec") with the blue section data if i choose "INDIVIDUAL MONTHS" i have twelve bars....with the red section data.
I created a bubble chart whose x-axis and y-axis show every 10th value between 0 and 100 (i.e. 0, 10, 20, 30...). The axes intersect at (50, 50) to create 4 quadrants.
I want to erase/hide the values on the axes (i.e. the axes will no longer show 0, 10, 20, 30... and at the same time, the bubbles will still be in the same place) to create 4 blank quadrants and make my bubble chart easier to look at.
So I added a x-y scatter series to a line chart (in order to add a vertical line to the chart) and now I'm having a problem with the x-axis. It lets me select the start and end date, but when I put it on auto is starts 1 day before the data does. For example, if my data starts on 5/1/2011, the x-axis starts on 4/1/2011 and the there is no data point at that date.
I could manually change this, but the data is dynamic so the start date changes. Since I can do formulas in the format axis tab (date+1).
Using the table, draw a stacked chart that has both the project name (A, B etc) and Month on the x-axis (below all the projects). the stacked chart should contain the count for cat1, cat2, cat3 and cat 4 for each project (in different but consistent numbers for each month).
I need this for a presentation today,

I am trying to create a horizontal bar chart with a product code data set. The number of codes will increase over time. For each product code there may it may not be a sales value and that sales value will increase over time. I am trying to plot the product codes on the y axis and sales value in the x axis.
I am trying to create a chart with dates from the past 6 weeks (one week at a time). The horizontal axis shows the dates from my data page correctly until I make one of the other data fields a secondary axis and then my dates change from the actual dates on the data page to 1-Jan-00, 2-Jan-00, through 6-Jan-00.
When I do the select data and look at the dats in the Horizontal Axis labels box, it shows the real dates. Why won't they show up on the chart as actual dates?
How do I select all of the series on my chart and flip them over to the secondary axis? I can't seem to find an answer via google... Either VBA or straight Excel would be fine.
For the record, this is part of a larger question. I've been creating a chart using a couple for loops to work through a 2D array (VBA, clearly). At first I would just set each series to the second axis as it was created, but I've found that if I use collapseable groups to turn off different values...well, if I collapse the first series it all dissapears (still shows up in the legend, but the lines are gone.)
If I leave them on the primary axis I have no prolblem. So now I'm working on the theory that it's the way they are being added. So I'm looking for another way to put them on the other axis.
how do you put all series in a graph on the secondary axis all at once. Either an Excel based or VBA answer is fine (I can turn the Excel into a Macro if push comes to shove.)
We're making a dynamic chart based (picture below) on test scores from neuropsychological tests ("IQ tests"). The chart displays median, min and max scores of several tests that are clustered on the X-axis into 9 domains (each containing several tests). The Y-axis display the results in T-scores ("T-Skarer") (kind of percentile rank). The chart is dynamic. If a person only have scores around the T=50 (50th percentile), the Y-axis adapts to this (no fixed values). But what we need in addition to the T-scores on the Y-axis are z-scores (standard deviations).
My question: Is it possible to incorporate an additional dynamic Y-axis with standard deviation (next to the T-score columns)? (the z-scores are eqvivalent to percentiles, but have different values.
I have seen alot of questions about linking max and min values of axis on charts to cell values. But what i need is the opposite. I have a graph that will automatically change its max and min values for the axis, but what i need is to be able to have a cell show what these values are, so basically the reverse of what people normally want.
I have made a chart in Excel to show the half life of cells for a science project so it basically has days along the horizontal axis and percentage on a logarithmic vertical axis. However, the horizontal axis always appears at the top of the chart when I use a vertical log scale (if i dont use logs then its at the bottom where it should be). Is there any way i can move it to the bottom? i've tried everything i could think of under "format axis".
how to create a column chart with a broken y-axis? And if this is possible, is it also possible to have 2 gaps in the y-axis. I have several countries in which i gathered information about their (expected) population sizes over time (2003 - 2011). For each country i want to make a chart in which their population size is shown over time. In order to compare these countries i want these charts all having the same y-axis scale (which expresses the population size). To be able to do this i want to put some gaps in the y-axis. I think i need 2 gaps because i can divide the countries in "low population" countries (2-3 million), "moderate population" countries (7-14 million) and "high population" countries (> 30 million). I attached a sample file to make things more clear! I hope somebody knows more how to do it!
How do i get this into a chart, with week along the bottom, Amount on the left. This is starting to be a pain now as i need to seperate by currency, but a pivot chart looks really realy messy with all the drop down boxes and stuff. I dont mind using drop don boxes, in fact, its going to be essential. but the pivot one look horrible.
Using Excel 2007. Would like to format X-Axis values to display 1st month and 13th month as Feb 2, '08 for example. I would like the other 11 tick marks to remain. Sample attached ( Saved in 2003 format, I .xlsx was invalid file type) 4th micro chart uses F1:F13 for values for x axis
I want to create grouped labels on a chart x-axis of the type created automatically when creating a pivot chart. For example: I have projects, samples and sample yields. There are multiple samples in a project so I have a sheet that looks something like this below:-
I would like to create a chart that has Project and Sample as the x-axis where the samples are all grouped into their project. Pivot charts do this nicely, but how to do it without a pivot chart? As you will see from the attached file I can get both Project and Sample on the x-axis, but the Projects are overlapping.
