How can i make a graph that will graph against time? lets say i have a bank balance like this:

1/2/2000 $500
1/3/2000 $600
3/12/2000 $400

there may be more than one entry on any one given day, or there may not be an entry for 2 weeks. How can i graph the running balance in a way that it will show the timeline just as a calendar year(or however long i selected) and the points are plotting according to their date, not just equally spaced out.

I would like to make a scatter graph that will graph the attached. The score would be on the Y axis and the birth date would be on the X axis. This is simple to do by itself but what I would like to do in addition to this is to have the top 25% of the scores a single color, the middle 50% of the scores a second color and then the bottom 25% of the scores to be a third color. And if it is possible to have the ID visible when you move your cursor over a given dot in the graph. Currently when I make a scatter graph the X,Y coordinates show when I hoover the cursor over a dot.

now i want to make 5 different graphs one per each group. Now i am making them manually in excel but it is taking lot of time to format each graphs to get unique graphs. I am attching sample file and graph for better understanding.

I want to use a line graph to display an amount over time - that's the easy part. On the other hand, I would like to have to group the lines based on a value.

A short example: Imagine you own 3 different stores and you're selling oranges. So your table looks like this: http://img179.imageshack.us/my.php?image=orangeshm4.jpg

Now I'd like to have one graph (3 different graphs won't work as the rows increase -I need to select the whole column as data source):

Date on the x axis, Oranges sold on the y axis, and one line per store (e.g. a green one for store A, a red one for B and a blue one of C, doesn't matter).

I made a graph with thousand of points, but the lines which make the curves are too thick and so I can't see exactly where they intersect. I would like to make them thinner.

How can I make a panel data graph I have 40+ observations and 500+ individuals. I would like to make an excel graph that can display changes over time for each individual.

Is there a way to make the bar on a vertical column bar graph increase in height gradually over a couple of seconds rather than jumping from one height to the next height instantly.

eg:

if a vertical bar graph is reading data from cell b5, and b5 currently reads as 46, if b5 then changes to (let's say) 58, I'd like the column bar graph not to instantly change from a height reflecting the 46 to a height reflecting 58, but to slowly rise, showing the transition from 46 to 58.

This is how my pivot table would look like to start. Over time I would refresh and more things will be added. I want to make a Pie chart, and everytime I refresh the Pivot I want the Pie to get updated.

BUT I want to do this on a separate tab. So basically I want to do a Vlookup of sorts. Where all the Fruit items are pulled and automatically updated when I refresh the Pivot. Then I would do the same for Veggies.

I'm trying to make a line graph with specific increments on both the x and y axis. Now, I can make specific increments on one, but have to sacrifice the other in order for me to label the lines. Im not sure how to get around this. I'll just type out what i'm trying to do and maybe you smart people can help me here.

Okay, both the x and y axis must be in increments of 8,10,12.5,16,20,25,30, and 35.

The first line should be labeled "Indicated magnification, and should have the values 8,10,12.5,16,20,25,30, and 35... the same as the x and y values, making the line a straight linear line.

The second line should say "actual m value" and have values of 10,12.5,15.5,20.5,25,31,37.5, and 44.

The third line should say "actual n value" and have values of 10,13,16,21,26,32,38.5, and 45.

I have been given a task to create a line graph who has 10 categories and each category has 5 different values. I need to plot a line graph, so that those 10 categories should appear on the Y-axis instead of X-axis.

Is there a way to make multiple charts off of 1 big data sheet. Sounds easy but there is more.

Sheet name is Field Column A is Name ( about 40 different names) Column B is Date (x axis primary and secondary) Column D is Oil (y primary axis) Column G is Water (y primary axis) Column E is Gas ( y secondary axis) Column M is MCFE (y secondary axis)

There is about 2-3 thousand rows, updated monthly. I need to make a graph by each well name.

1) can I make multiple graphs that can just look at the "field" sheet and then breakout just the 1 well name that shows up on the chart sheet that I create

I've tried pivot charts but you can't have secondary acess because it resets every time.

Basically, make multiple charts that will graph the data of a specific name in column A

I have a sheet with a table of peoples hours they are doing during the week each day. I want the hours to be put into a model shading the appropriate times to show when people will be in. I have attached a sample sheet of what i want it to do which i have had to do my self. Sheet 1 has table in and sheet 2 has the model i want to be automatically filled in once ihave entered all my data in the original table.

1. I have a SQL query that returns a time span. Is there any way Excel can convert, for example, 51.9451388888889 into dd.hh:mi format that still allows me to manipulate the data as time so that I can add times together and compare times. So I would like the number above to be formatted to look like this '51.22:41' and still be able to work with it as if it was just a regular time.

2. I want to make a graph from this data I have (the data in the question above). The data has this output format: A ----B-----C Date-time ( dd.mm.yyyy hh24:mi)----- Time span -------- Reason

I would like to make a graph that displays for each month the 5 highest Timespans on the y-axis and their reasons on the x-axis.

I want to graph the composition of a group over time. I want to create an area graph, where you can see what kinds of things were in the group at any given year . There are, let's say,three categories of things: A, B, and C - and I have the purchase and sale date for each.

I have an Access database, with a table of jobs processed.

One column for Job ID (Unique), Date it was processed, By Who it was processed and Comments ascoiated.

I need to chart a graph of Jobs over a period of time. How many jobs done per date. In excel preferebly, I have programs like Database Plus for excel. And I am familiar with VBA. I can't figure out how to uniquely sort how many jobs for each date. As there are numerous job entries for on the same dates. I think it can be done with an SQL query or sorting it with VBA somehow. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Or can anyone suggest an application designed for charting with Access databases in Excel?

I have got a project that has several hundred starts and finishes. I want to count them over time to use as an indication of progress. ( I want to show this graphically)

I have got the graph working but it is pretty long handed.

I have tried using a pviot table and picvot graph which almost does it but has a few problems (if there is no data in a month then it wont create an entry for the month, and the cumulative over time is not quite working).

Both examples are in the attached file : Progress Curve ozgrid1.xlsx

My company has a catalog of ~6000 unique SKUs that we sell online. Currently we do not have a way to quickly determine how much a given item has sold month over month, and the rate of that change.

I have an excel workbook full of our last year's worth of sales data. I have organized it by placing each month of data in its own worksheet. I would like to be able to create a search box that will allow us to enter in a product ID, and have excel then create a graph with each month's of sales for that particular item. Is that clear?

I am trying to make a line graph showing the gradual rises and falls in profit over a period of time, when I use the data and click line graph normally, it will plot each bit of data individually rather than gradually, for example;

If I tried to plot the above data, the graph will not show a gradual rise but instead will show a value of £1604.88 on the 23rd of September when instead I would want the chart line to be at £29,287.55 (The total).

I have a X-Y graph with 602 data points. My x scale is a counter from 1 to 602 and the Y is a decreasing set of numbers. When I hover my mouse over the points on the graph (I zoomed the graph) My first 3 points are all labeled as Point "1". At the end of my graph, my last 3 points are labeled 599,601,602, it skips 600.

I am using Excel 2007. Has anybody seen this before?

I am creating a graph with a wide range of values (0.06 - 300). The smaller values are barely visible on my column graph. I have tried all of the tricks I know. Any way to get the smaller values to show up instead of just hovering towards the bottom of the graph?

I need to set up a graph (smooth line chart possibly) with an (x axis) that are not regular intervals. I've attached an example.

the amounts would be (y axis) and the corresponding dates (x axis).

That would be great to start with. Then I have one of these sheets for each month, can there be a continuous graph made using each month or does it need to be individual graphs.

I need to create a graph using the data in the following format: Item X Y A: 10 100 B: 20 200 C: 30 300 D: 40 400 E: 50 500 etc. I need to annotate points with A,B,C etc in the scatter plot so that the same can be quickly identified in the graph.

First represet company , second colum represent data1 ( x- axis) and third represet data2 ( y-axis).

I want to plot x-y graph with the company name

Eg. McDon | 10 | 20

In the above case i want to show a round circle or dot which will be 10 right on x axis and 20 up on y axis and near the dot i want to show McDon as company name.

See that attachement... Graph is coming well.. but i am not able to add the company name to the dots.. or pot of x and y intersection

I would like to create a graph where the numbers are grouped in such a way as all numbers between 0 and -1 are shown in one column, all numbers between -1.1 and -2 are shown in the next column, all numbers between -2.1 and 3 are shown in another column etc

I use spectrometer in my reesearch. The datas are in (a, b) format in single cell. Is it possible to seperate a and b seperately? like a in seperate cell and b in seperate cell?

I want to carry out a survey in Sept, Oct and Nov. I will asking 1000 random people in each survey what is their personal favourite--- iPhone, Nexus or Blackberry. Counts of each phone type is then divided into male and female.

Now we have three variables: gender, phone type and month. Is there any way I can present 3 variables on X, Y & Z axes and the value at their intersection as bubble size (or colour gradient)? Theoretically it's possible but I can't find a way to do it in excel. Or anyone knows any software that can get the job done?
