Changing Marker Size In Charts For All Series At The Same Time?

Apr 24, 2014

I have a chart with 5 different series. Instead of editing each one, say the marker size, is there anyway I can change the marker size for all of the different series at the same time?

Vary Source Data Via Combo Box

Feb 23, 2007

I'm trying to amend a chart via combo box. Cell C15 returns a dynamic named range, based on a vlookup.

My problem is in having the code pick up the value that C15 returns, rather than the formula in it.

Set rng = Sheets("Chart lookup").Range("C15")

ActiveChart.SetSourceData Source:=rng, _

Excel 2010 :: Add Pie Chart Into Data Point Marker On Line Chart

Nov 27, 2011

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.

CopyDown To The Last Row Of Data As This Will Vary From Sheet To Sheet

Nov 9, 2009

I've have a piece of coding.

Sub CopyDown()
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[1]=1,R[-1]C+1,R[-1]C)"
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "20090000"

End Sub

This works fine, but I would like it to look in Column "M" but still insert in Column "A",

Also instead of Range("A2:A200") I would like it to copy down to the last row of data
as this will vary from sheet to sheet.

Automate Marker Options In Spreadsheet?

Jul 2, 2014

I have a scatter plot in which there are, for example, twenty plotted points representing one of three major categories.

We're using a red square, green triangle and blue circle to represent our categories on the graph. Going in to every plot point and manually changing each point so that it has the proper color and style is very time consuming.

Is there a way to designate in the spreadsheet (in its own column or something) that I always want the plot point to be represented in a certain way (like a red square) when graphed?

How Do I Modify The Comment Marker/symbol

Nov 15, 2008

I would like to insert images (like a questionmark symbol) into a spreadsheet I'm working on, and then when the user hovers the mouse over the questionmark a "help-text" pops up. I've noticed that it doesn't seem to be that simple making a tooltip, however, is it possible to replace the small red triangle that is inserted into the sheet to indicate a comment with an image?

Image As Custom Xy Chart Marker

Oct 19, 2007

I'm trying to use an image as a custom marker on an XY scatter chart. The jpg image is embedded on a separate worksheet and when I copy and paste it via code it seems to be arbitrarily resized. I've also tried to resize the embedded image and set the marker size but it always appears about 3 times the size of the original image. See CASE -0.5 below.

Set seriespoint = chtBaseArea.SeriesCollection(" Events").Points

For i = 1 To rngCombPointsY.Rows.Count
With seriespoint(i)
.HasDataLabel = True
.ApplyDataLabels Type:=xlDataLabelsShowLabel
.DataLabel.Text = rngCombPoints. Cells(i, 1).Value
.DataLabel.Position = xlLabelPositionAbove
.DataLabel.Font.Bold = True
.DataLabel.Font.Size = 8

Select Case rngVehicleY.Cells(i, 1).Value

Case -0.5
Set shpTemp = wrkshtGraphics.Shapes("Soyuz_Small_Icon")
.MarkerSize = 10

Adding A Coloured Marker On Chart Y Axis.

Aug 7, 2009

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.

Hiding The Active Cell Marker / Placeholder

May 24, 2006

I feel a bit silly asking this in the presence of so many obvious excel gurus: but here it goes. I've created some user forms, activex controls, etc. that do a series of complex calculations, supported by VBA and it's at the point where I want to roll it out. How do I hide / get rid of the active cell marker on the sheets? I've looked in the "options - view" section and have lucked out.

Testing For Values That Vary Within Specific Tolerance?

Apr 22, 2014

I'm trying to identify where a set of values 'agree' within a specified tolerance.

I have a list of scores from different sources, and wish to both average them (easy to do) but also to identify how well they 'agree' by flagging those which have a difference above a specified tolerance. The numbers are all integers, and the tolerance will be an integer.

To give an example, I might have cells with values (2,3,2,2) and these agree within a tolerance of 1. If I had cells of (2,4,2,2) these wouldn't agree. I'd like to flag (by the creation of an 'X' within a separate column) where these cells do not agree.

I've done this previously by using chained If and Or statements (e.g. if A1 = D1 or A1 = D1+1 etc etc) but this is laborious and means I have to change logic every time I add a new sample.

Is there a way of specifying a range of cells (e.g. A1,D1,H1, J1) and seeing if the values of these cells agree to within a stated tolerance? I'm happy to define named cells to specify and argument/attribute.

Opening File Paths Where Filename Will Vary

Feb 4, 2014

I'm trying to write code that will open files within a specific folder. However, the end of each filename is going to vary over time to the point that I'll never be able to predict the exact filename.

Is it possible to write something like:

Set wb = Workbooks.Open "C:\folderfile_filenumberxxxx.xlsx"

Where the "xxxx" signifies the variable element of the file name that could be any four characters? Failing that, is there a similar possible alternative?

Range - Dynamic Use #rows & Cols Vary

May 29, 2007

i have data that will vary from item to item in the $ of rows associated
and the # of columns to be dealt with.

item1 Line 1
Line 2
Here i want to have a formula put and copied across X columns
item2 Line 1
Line 2 other data going across in the columns
Line 3
Line 4
Here i want to have a formula put and copied across X columns
item3 Line 1
item4 Line 1

get my meaning??

columns involved will be known before i get to this bit of code !!
as an example lets say it's 8 columns

using the record macro i get this bit of code

Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "=SUM(R[-10]C:R[-1]C)"
This is fine but i don't know what row or the columns are before i run the macro so the Range
("e14:M14").select wont really work.

I've sent sometime going through MRexcell searching for tips but found nothing also googled for dynamically pasting across unknown columns

this is close to my idea in my mind conceptually
Range("C2:C" & LastRow)
but it doesn't make the columns dynamic eg column 8 being = H and then P = 8th column on and the last with data.

Setting Chart Marker Based On Cell Format

Apr 12, 2006

I have a dynamic chart which I would like to show markers in a SeriesCollection anywhere the backcolor of any of the corresponding source cells is ColorIndex = 36; otherwise no marker is shown. Something along the lines of:

VB: AutoLinked keywords will cause extra spaces before keywords. Extra spacing is NOT transferred

when copy/pasting, but IS if the keyword uses "quotes".
With Sheets("Chart").ChartObjects(1).Chart.SeriesCollection(1)
For i = 1 To UBound(.Values)
If "something here to check if .Interior.ColorIndex = 36" Then
.Points(i).MarkerStyle = xlMarkerStyleCircle
.Points(i).MarkerStyle = xlMarkerStyleNone
End If
Next i

Format A Range Of Cells, Columns And Rows Will Vary In Length

Jun 16, 2009

I created a macro on an Excel spreadsheet:

Sub Macro1()

Selection.NumberFormat = "$#,##0.00_);($#,##0.00)"
Selection.NumberFormat = "0.00%"
Selection.NumberFormat = "$#,##0.00_);($#,##0.00)"
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=24
Selection.NumberFormat = "$#,##0.00_);($#,##0.00)"
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=57

End Sub

When the macro is run, it works with the exact amount of data that I've entered.

However, because I have specified a specific range, if I add a row or column of data to the spreadsheet and run the macro again, it throws the whole thing off (certain cells get formatted when they shouldn't and others aren't formatted)

How do I tell the macro to look in the spreadsheet for varying ranges of data and format those cells?

Charts: Vary Colors By Point With Area Fill Effect

Oct 30, 2006

I am attempting to create simple charts to show survey results 2005 v 2006. I have a single series in a bar chart - chart type. The wizard initially makes both bars the same fill color. I right-clicked one of the bars to start the Format Data Series Wizard. On the 5th tab, "Options", I ticked "Vary Colors By Point". A new color was assigned to the top or first bar. So far so good. But instead of these colors, I would like to use a different fill effect for each data point in the series

So I walk through the wizard and desiqn a fill effect and click ok. The fill effect is assigned to both data points. I checked where I had ticked "Vary Colors By Point"
It is still ticked. Can I override this somehow so that each data point can have a unique fill effect?

Excel VBA - Change Marker Styles For All Series Excluding Unmarked Lines

Aug 4, 2014

I have a macro that changes the marker style for all series in a scatter chart, chosen through an input box.


It works nicely, but I want it to exclude any series that do not have markers (i.e. lines used to indicate a reference value). I've tried an if-then statement after the With statement, but it will add markers to any line series:

[Code] ......

Basically, if the series has markers or line+markers, I want it to change the marker style, otherwise do nothing with the series.

Calculating Average From Range Of Data That Changes Size?

The different sets of data are split by blank cells so they can be distinguished.
