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'm using Office/Excel 2004 on a Mac Mini duo running OS10.6.8. I upgraded to Office/Excel 2011 but I find the program so horrible I had to switch back to 2004.

The problem: On one chart, the Y-axis label values have moved from outside the left-hand axis to _inside_ the right-hand axis and within the plot area. I can't figure out how to move the labels back to the right position.

I did a data table yesterday and it worked. I tried again today and the results are incorrect. They are coming out as a constant (the same result as the original formula). Has anyone had this happen before and figured out how to fix? My spreadsheet is fairly complex. Does the data table formula need to refer to the "base" cells? For example, if the formula refers to cell F15, but in F15 the formula is +C15, does my data table formula need to use C15?

Currently I'm working with an amount of data that corresponds with one data point every day in one year. Not every day is measured thus nothing is entered, some days can also be 0. Therefore I've made an if statement in the column next to the raw data column with an if statement returning #N/A if a cell contains nothing or 0.

This gives me normally no problems when I want to make a Line chart, excel just skips the #N/A cells and draws the line to the next data point (that's the whole reason for the if statement). However this is impossible with area charts. I can understand why, but I still want it as nothing or 0 in a cell not necessarily mean that nothing happened.

I'm trying to create an area chart to show the change in the number of staff working in my store over time. Unfortunately, Excel likes to draw diagonal lines. That is if I have the following data:

Excel will draw a diagonal line between each data point, rather than creating a box. This gives the illusion that there are somehow half people working at 9:30 and 10:30. Is there a workaround?

I'm having trouble drawing an area chart that ends sharply at a specifided value rather than drawing a diagonal line down to zero. Let me explain

I watched an Excellsfun youtube tutorial that used the IF statement to chart a subset of normal curve data as the second series in an area chart.

It looks like an easy way to add some interactivity. I enter a single value, and the IF statement checks to see if the data in the first sereis is less than or equal o that number. Once the first series data exceeds the number I entered, the IF statement populates the second series with "", which is to say a blank entery.

Here's my spreadsheet data and the chart it produces: Normal ABCDEFGHIJ1Series AHeight AHeight B:5.5210.04070850.0407085d2.87228320.06610770.0661077x5430.09509940.0950994540.12118840.1211884Height A: =NORM.DIST(A2:A11,$F$1,$F$2,FALSE)650.13680530.1368053Height B:=IF(A2

I have been measuring variation against some key performance indicators and trying to plot them on a chart i.e., line chart.

Is there any way in Excel that i can highlight in different colours the area between the variable and benchmarks? I want to fill the area say as green when the variable performed better than benchmark (area between the variable line and benchmark line) and as red if variable under performed than benchmark (area between benchmark and variable.

I have a table of values that are computed using input values from the first column (y's) and first row (x's). Each value in the table (z's) has a unique set of x and y.

In order to plot z vs x and z vs y I need to create a list of unique x,z and another of y,z. My question is how most efficiently to thus turn this table "inside out." The table will be very large, or I would do it by hand.

I have a series of X-Y Data (0-10 in both axis) that I want to overlay on an area chart to show outliers outside of an accepted condition. I have been able to create the area chart and the scatter chart separately but when I try to combine them the axis gets messed up. I tried using a secondary axis but I am not that skilled

I have attached the data and my feeble attempts at creating this chart.

I have plenty of experience with VBA outside of charts so that's where I need assistance. I need to get SeriesCollection(4), the PTAI series, to appear on the area chart second from the bottom instead of on the top.

The order for the non-line series should be, from top to bottom: SeriesCollection(3) - Non-Mission AC ( Training, T&E, AMarc series) SeriesCollection(2) - Total Pipeline series SeriesCollection(4) - PTAI series SeriesCollection(1) - Available PMAI series

Here's the

I have charts that needs to be placed on specific position and have specific sizes on a chartsheet. I use chartobjects(i).plotarea (top, left, width, height) for that.

Unfortunately when I set these values they still change and get antoher value, there is some scaling going on in Excel and I do not know where that comes from. I have been looking on the internet and finally I found a piece of code which works, but still not good enough, because the legend is also not good positioned.

De data for resizing the charts (ChtNew), the legends and the charttitle I get from other charts (ChtOrig). The legend.legendposition of ChtOrig does not have a value but it still have a top,left,height en width which I use.

I show you my code, the part with the for-next is taken from the internet.

With ChtNew.legend .Top = ChtOrig.Legend.Top .Height = ChtOrig.Legend.Height .Left = ChtOrig.Legend.Left .Width = ChtOrig.Legend.Width '* 1.1 .Top = ChtOrig.Legend.Top + ChtOrig.ChartTitle.Top End With

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'm trying to produce step charts like Andy Pope does on his web site using the area chart method. http://www.andypope.info/charts/stepchart.htm. This involves duplicating each of the values in each data series, which is tedious if there are a lot of points. Plus the fact that the area series is offset by 1 from the axis series. Can anyone think of a formula to do this? There are plenty of posts here about deleting duplicates, but I couldn't find much about creating duplicates. I can duplicate row numbers using =CEILING(ROW(),2)/2

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

how to resize the plotarea of a chart so that it wont overlap with the title. I can't seem to find the appropriate property to let me determine the height or the bottom edge of the chart title.

I'm working on a spreadsheet to anticipate the corrosion rates on multiple equipments, based on 4 criterias. At the moment, we type them down one by one and we search for the corresponding value inside the table we have.

These values aren't the real ones, but it looks like that. So, if I have a piece of equipment made of CS, I look at the specific table for CS (There are about 7 different groups of materials). I consider the %Sulfur, TAN# and the specific temperature. You also have to consider that this table is repeated with different outputs for higher level of %sulfur (>0.6, up to about 3%)

EX - Material = CS, %Sulfur = 0.4, TAN# = 0.7, Temp = 152, my value will be 9 (the bold numbers are the outputs). There is no linear relation or any sort of mathematical way to obtain the output, you have to look at the table.

In my mind, this part of my spreadsheet should look just like that :

Material %Sulfur TAN# Temperature CORR RATE

W X Y Z = Output

The excel part now, I tried working with IF() to specify a table to use as the TRUE value, trying to group multiple IF statement into one, but searching values inside multiple ranges is very tedious and I cannot cover all the possibilities... Then I tried working with INDEX() and MATCH() but again, these are not exact values, they are ranges, making the work even harder. Building an output with multiple criterias that are simple and exact is easy, I just can't seem to work it out with ranges.

I am using an area chart to display the price spread between different types of wheat.

Now the problem I am having is that, at the "end" of the chart, ie. the most recent observation date, the line drops to zero while the value is actually well above zero. How can I avoid this ?

This seems so simple but i looked everywhere and i cannot find the vba script to add a 3 point solid black line border around the chart and plot area of my graphs. The record macro option does not record this.

I have made a pivot table which I use each month by just updating the source data, however I was trying to have a cell in another workbook say "=A31" but it keeps going "=getpivotdata(...specific name".

My usual practice was to copy the top ten rows of my pivot table into another file but I am trying to erase this step.

I set up my pivot table but on the Value area I need to make a multiplication with the total values, not just sum it all up.

Normally in the Value area you can choose Sum, Count, Average, etc, but you can't multiply it with another cell. There is a "product" option but it multiply the total values together, it doesn't ask for another cell value.

From the research I've done, it seems that pivot tables do not support text in the values area, period.

Quite a bit of work has gone into aggregating this data, and it's so close, but the text fields are showing 0.

Have a look. Double-clicking on cell C5 (sheet 1) drills down into the individual record. Cell E2 (sheet 4) contains the text value I need--"Not Stated".

Is there any quick workaround to get this text value to showup in cell C5 of the pivot table?

I need a formula for the highlighted yellow area that pulls and sums from a reference table. Not a traditional Vlookup because the reference within the report can appear in multiple columns within multiple rows.

How can I print 2 selected area (highlighted area). I know there is a trick to do that. Right now I can only select (highlight) one area to print, but would like to know how to print 2 or more areas at same time
