Swap/Rotate Chart Axis

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.

Second Category Axis & Value Axis To Current Chart
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.

Chart With Two 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

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

Dual Axis Chart
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.

Column Chart With Both Value X And Y-axis
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.

Chart: Secondary Axis To Start At 0 Instead Of Min Value
where i can fix the secondary value axis to start at 0 instead of starting from minimum value like usual?

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.

Broken Axis Column Chart
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.

Move X-axis To Bottom Of Chart From Top
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".

Hide Minus Values On Y-axis On A Chart
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).

Adding A Coloured Marker On Chart Y Axis.
I have a simple Excel 2007 column chart which has names listed along the y axis for each column. Associated with each name in a small table is a colour reference. Is it possible to add a small marker (say a triangle or something) that aligns with each column?

Or possibly (or in addition) colour each column differently and in accordance with the assigned colours? I'm doing this with some vba code. but if someone can point out the general principle I should be able to work that in.

Offsetting Category Labels Along A Chart Axis
Has anyone ever succeeded in offsetting category labels in a chart by surpressing the first category label. I am plotting monthly financial data over several years and want to show category labels for the month ends which coincide with quarterly month ends (i.e Mar-06, Jun-06, Sep-06, Dec-06). If I select 2 tick marks between categories I get Jan-06, Apr-06, Jul-06, Oct-6) because my first month and category label is Jan-06. Is there a way to offset displaying the first category label by two tick marks and start with Mar-06 and then go every two tick marks between category labels?

Formatting X Axis On Scatter Plot Chart
Attached is a chart I am trying to create. So basically, I originally used a line chart but it didn't have the flexibility of the scatter chart, but i am having a very hard time formatting the X axis. First of all - I would like the line in the middle at the 0% point to actually go to the bottom so that the x axis labels aren't in the middle of the graph. Second the x axis labels aren't showing up correctly. They should be quarters: 1Q:02, 2Q:02, 3Q:02, 4Q:02... Finally, how can I show the correlation between these two data points plotted - the R-squared. THANKS!!! Auto Merged Post;I actually was able to figure out most of what I asked. What is remaining: how do I calculate the R-Squared on the chart? Isn't there a way to do it automatically in excel on the chart.

Zoom Or Expand Line Chart X-axis
I have an Excel chart as a separate worksheet. It has 10,000 data points. Is there a way to Zoom in on the X-axis only. I am looking to expand or zoom the X-axis to take a closer look at the individual data points. Since I have 10,000, I need a way to take a closer look at an area defined by the mouse pointer. Can this be done with VB code? I am not looking to expand or zoom the "Y" axis, this can be done with the scale values. Can this be done with a mouse drag or double click on the area of the chart I want to expand.

Prevent Word Wrap In Chart Category Axis
I do not seem to be able to consistently control word wrapping in the Category Axis area in the series of charts I create quarterly. The individual names appearing are basically the same, but sometimes they word wrap and sometime they don't. In the attached sample, sheet C2-Location: PPO chart is just the way it needs to be - NO WORD WRAP. But if you change that chart to another location it word wraps. (To change locations, go to sheet D2 which controls sheet C2 chart, and change the location to SGO.) It appears that the less bars in the chart the greater the problem.

I have spent 2 1/2 hrs trying to get in control of this. I have changed font sizes, changed the plot area, changed the grid lines scale, changed the cell size on the originating sheet (D2), removed the check mark in Auto Scale on the Font tab, and stretched/reduced the entire chart without consistent success. What is most frustrating is that twice I have "accidently" gotten a chart to all of a sudden not word wrap but don't know why because when I try to repeat what I think I did before, it does not work!

Additionally, at times it may appear correct on the screen, but when I do Print Preview, it is word wrapped! I have searched multiple sites and googled multiple Excel solutions as well as pulled out some books but cannot find any references regarding how to control this.

Swap Cells Across Row
I am attaching a sample sheet as a reference.

in fact the sheet could contain hundreds if not thousands of rows.

Look at column Player 1, the last 3 characters are AoS.

I want to find any rows where Player 1 has those three characters ( AoS ) and swap them with the contents of the Player 2.

BUT if that swap happens then the following swaps must occur as well:

Contents of Column "Side 1" swaps with Contents of Colum "Side 2"
Contents of Column "Player 1 Pts" swaps with Contents of Column "Player 2 Pts"

Ultimately I want this extended so that is the letters AoS appear in any of the following columns ( Player 4, Player 6, Player 8, Player 10)
the following swaps happens:

Contents of Column "Player 3" swaps with Contents of Column "Player 4"
Contents of Column "Side 3" swaps with Contents of Column "Side 4"
Contents of Column "Player 3 Pts" swaps with Contents of Column "Player 4 Pts"

Contents of Column "Player 5" swaps with Contents of Column "Player 6"
Contents of Column "Side 5" swaps with Contents of Column "Side 6"
Contents of Column "Player 5 Pts" swaps with Contents of Column "Player 6 Pts"

Asset Swap Function
Have 5 columns (A1-E1) with different bond data: (respectively)
Coupon, Maturity, Settlement, Price, Yield (asset swap is F1)

Depending on the type of swap I am performing i want the ASWAP (user-created) function to reference different values within the row.

For example: Swap 1 = settlement, maturity, coupon, price, curve
(curve is a user input single number 1-3)

Swap 2 = settlement, maturity, yield, price, curve (yield in place of coup)

Swap 3 = settlement, maturity, yield, 100, curve (100 for par redemption)

etc. I won't type out all the iterations, not necessary.

The way that I want the ASWAP to recognize which Swap# to use is by inputting a number into a cell beside the Aswap column that I can input 1, 2, 3, etc., and then recalculate to get the desired outcome. Want to keep this a static reference as well as the price at par (each owning their own single cell, not a fill down the columns because there are too many).

So assuming G1 is the Swap# input, and H1 is 100...

How do i write a formula that is capable of reading the input in G1 and outputting the proper swap calc.

My gut feeling was along the lines of nested IF's with the corresponding formula... but i won't mess around in futility on here.

Let me know if this is too confusing without me putting up an example.
