# Make Chart Series Open Ended?

Jan 7, 2013

In a chart series, I have and end number for a row that I have been updating manually everytime I enter a new fuel tank fillup. Is there a simple way with the chart series to just say always go to the last data in the specified column?

See my example here, instead of the 137 in the series is there someway to just say "last data row"?

## Make Line Chart From 3 Series

Jan 8, 2010

I have data:

Jan Feb Mar Apr May
2009years 56 45 42 50 62 - series1
2010years 48 47 45 48 55 - series2

I need make line chart from 3 series. First two are series1 and series2. Third is percent change between 2010 and 2009 years every month (series3). First two are easy, but third is very difficult for me, becouse I haven't row with percent change and I can't haven't it in my exercise.

How can I make it without new row with percent change?

I tried it with Data Source in chart, also formula in Name Manager, but it doesn't succeed

## Make Chart Series Dynamic

Oct 3, 2007

I would like to update a chart after I have updated the underlying data just by clicking a button and displaying the updated date in the chart. Does anyone know how to do this? Currently I am having to manually click on the graphs line in the chart, which highlights the columns data, then manually extend this for the chart to update. And then I am manually typing in a date cell in the chart. There MUST be a cool way to do this.

## Open Ended Cell For Sum Range

Oct 14, 2005

I have numerical data in column A rows 1:14.

I'm adding it up in row 15. Sum=(A1:A14)

Now I've been asked to insert more rows with data above row A14.

What can I put in my Sum formula in place of A14 so when I insert
a new row, any numerical data above it in column A automatically adds up?
Sum=(A1:?)

I don't want to have to go and change it to sum=(A1:A17) if I
insert 3 rows.... I have a huge file to create with sections like this. User
may have to insert new rows. They need to all add up.

## Find Last Col In Open-ended Table, Then Sum

Sep 22, 2008

I have a worksheet called Sales that could contain any number of columns of data. On another worksheet, I would like to find the last two columns and use a formula like:

Sumif('Sales'!C:C, c5, 'Sales'!D:D). (I have Excel 2007 so D:D is good)

The problem is how to change the C:C and D:D part to be the last columns.

I'm looking for something simple like this:

Sumif('Sales'!Secondtolastcol:Secondtolastcol, c5, 'Sales'!Lastcol:Lastcol)

## VLookup Use With Open Ended Range And Array?

Jan 20, 2014

I have a vlookup function that works for me in my workbook, when the data range and array is specific, but my data range will expand as will the array, as time goes on. I've used the "max" to produce the most recent results. Is there a way to accomplish this with an ever changing range and array? The most recent date will always be added to the bottom of column "A." I've used =VLOOKUP(MAX(A4:A25),A4:B25,2,0)

## AVERAGE An Open-Ended (entire) Column

Jul 13, 2009

I am trying to AVERAGE an Open-Ended (entire) column, while keeping the first 4 cells, "Out of the loop!"

Example:
=AVERAGE(E:E) less cells E1 through to E4, inclusive.

## Average Of Open-ended Column, Within Given Intervals

Oct 2, 2006

I need to average a column, without a fixed number of rows, and within an interval (and excluding zeros).

Example: Average of all numbers in the bracket 28-35, in column B2-B??

By this I mean that the total of rows in column B will vary from time to time, so in order to not having to manually change the number of rows each time, I need an "open-ended" formula, that also incorporates say 4 intervals (for instance 1-27, 28-35, 36-70, 71-100).

## VBA To Copy Formats For Open Ended Range

Apr 23, 2014

What I would like to do is copy the format of a range of cells (A2:O2) and paste that format into all the other rows of data beneath it. But my last row of data will change periodically, and I don't know how to tell Excel to find the last row each time. Here's what I was able to figure out on my own:

Code:
Sub CopyFormats()
Range("A2:O2").Select
Selection.Copy

## 200 Series But Get (The Maximum Number Of Series Per Chart Is 255) Error Message

Aug 4, 2014

I run a large simulation experiment. I have a loop plotting data in excel of a user defined area. Because of the limit of 255 series I have allowed a maximum of 250 simulations (they all need to be plotted). But the length of each simulation is free. I know there is a limit of 32.000 data points in a graph and I have this as a condition too.

If I set the data range to 100 columns and 3000 rows the graph is produced when I plot by columns. (code below)

But if I set the data range to 250 columns and 1000 rows I get the above mentioned error message. Even though I only have 250 series.

After the data is plotted it is the code below that gets the error:

## Line Chart - Remove Series Code But What If No Series Exists?

Dec 22, 2011

I have the following code:

Sub Macro5()
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 243").Activate
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 243").Activate
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Delete
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(2).Delete
End Sub

However, if there is no SereisCollection(1) actually present in the chart I get an error. How can I work around this? I will need an IF statement I assume, just not sure what it will look like.

## Show Chart Data Series Labels On All Series. 2007

May 31, 2008

I just recently installed Excel 2007 and I would like to know if it's possible to change all data points of a chart at the same time. In Excel 2003, I would normally hold down shift while clicking on each of the data points to make a global change. However, it appears I cannot do that in 2007.

I would like to display each data point's series name. When I go to Layout on the Excel Ribbon, and click on "Data Labels", and click on "More Data Label Options", the actual Y-axis values are shown for each data point. However, I do not want this - I actually only want the Series Name, but when I uncheck "Value" and check "Series Name" instead (under "Label Contains"), it only changes it for one of the series. Is there a better way, instead of going through each and every single series to make this change?

## Spurious XY Scatter Chart Series Adding Series

Aug 21, 2006

The following code is supposed to produce six series on an xlXYScatter chart. It produces seven with the seventh series being a repeat of the sixth but named series 7.

Sub Chart2()

Dim DataRange As Range
Dim CellString As String 'Stores a cell range in the form "AA27:AB39"
Dim CurrentSeries As Integer
Dim SeasonCount As Integer

Worksheets("Hemisphere").ChartObjects(2).Activate

## Color Pivot Chart Series Dependant On Series Name

Jun 24, 2008

I have a list of data on one sheet and a 'reports' page on another sheet. The reports page has several pivot tables and a pivot chart. I want the pivot chart to format the bars on the chart relevant to the series name. The series names are "R" "A" amd "G" for Red Amber and Green respectively, I want the chart to change the colour of the series so that it is the correct colour ie. "R" would be coloured Red, "A" would be Amber and "G" would be green.

Dim Red As Integer
Dim Amber As Integer
Dim Green As Integer
Red = Range("H9").Value
Amber = Range("H10").Value
Green = Range("H11").Value
Range("B8").Select
ActiveSheet.PivotTables("PivotTable4").PivotCache.Refresh
Range("D25").Select
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=18
Range("B49").Select...........................

## Chart - Second Series Starts Where First Series Ends?

Sep 21, 2011

I would like to have two series of data using the same X axis (date, formatted in months). The Y axis is in intervals of 100,000.

The first data series is historical (actual) data (i.e. Jan 2009 to August 2011). The second data series is forecast (Sept 2011 - August 2012). So i want the forecast series to start immediately after the historical series. It is a 'line with markers' chart. The key objective is that the forecast data looks visually distinct from the historial series.

Excel version: Excel 2010
OS: Windows 7

## Chart Making- Chart With 3 Data Series

Jun 30, 2008

I have a chart with 3 data series. The series are located in columns A, B and C respectively. Series I is a general number anywhere from 0 to 100,000. Series 2 is also a number, but is is devided by series 1. So, if series 1 was 100,000 then series two would be 25,000/100,000 which is 0.25. Series three will always be numerator of series 2 or 25,000 in this example. The numerator, or the 25,000 will never change, so, in my example, series three will be a straight line across the chart because it is always 25,000.

In my example, the .25 is plotted on the left value axes, and series one is plotted on the right value acccess (secondary axis). Series three is just a line in the middle.

My problem is that sometimes the line, series 3, doesn't match the values in both the right and left values axes. So, if series one is 48,000, then series two would be 48,000/48,000 = 1, and series three would be 48000 - the straight line. The third series should be a line touching the 48,000 on the right and the number 1 on the left. It does touch the 48000 on the left, but is below the number 1 on the left.

## Change Chart Series Pasted From Another Chart

Jun 19, 2008

I want to use a macro to change attributes of a series in a chart. Unbelievably, if the series has been pasted into the chart from another chart, and although the macro can address the series and even return values (eg name) correctly, the selection simply cycles to one of the original series on the chart.

## Odd Chart: Combine Data From Multiple Worksheets And Make A Chart

Mar 26, 2009

I am trying to combine data from multiple worksheets and make a chart. I have about 200 keywords in every worksheet (about 50), and some of them repeat themselves through worksheets and some don't. For every keyword, I have an associated value in the next column that I want to portray over time (each worksheet is for a different period).

So what I need to figure out is how to be able to pick any 10 keywords from the worksheets and put them in a line chart where I can see the associated value for each period for every worksheet so I can compare my keywords' efficiency. The tricky part is that some worksheets do not contain the keyword and other worksheets contain the keyword in a different cell than the previous wsheet.

## Make Data Series The X Axis

May 31, 2012

How to format an Excel table in a forum post!

I have the following table

Code:
seqIdpointsMAEMFE
1033022
1122-511
12-10-1018
130-517
14-11-117
1630-620
1712-120
186-444
190-126

I want to create a stacked chart with seqId as the x axis, and the other 3 columns are values on the y axis.

Excel is making seqId a data series, I don't want it to do that. How do I change it? This is what I have now:

## Charts - Make Second Axis Series Always Appear Above

Sep 10, 2012

I have a combination column and line chart with the line series on the secondary axis. Is there a way that I can tell excel to scale the secondary axis so as the line always appears above the columns? As it is it appears above in most instances but sometimes appears below the columns.

## Use VBA Variable In Chart Series

Oct 2, 2012

I'm attempting to create a dynamically built donut chart using VBA, but I'm having trouble inserting a variable to be used as one of the values.

The chart graphs 3 data points:
ASC GP - Located in cell T4
ACC GP - Located in cell AE4
ACT GP - variable called LocSumActGP

The code snippet I assumed would work looked like this:

Code:
.SeriesCollection(1).Values = "='Location Summary'!\$T\$4,'Location Summary'!\$AE\$4," & LocSumActGP

But it doesn't seem to like that.

## Adding A 2nd And 3rd Series Onto A Chart

Jan 24, 2007

I have the following code which puts a series onto a chart

With Charts("Test Chart")
.Axes(xlCategory).MinimumScale = 1
.Axes(xlCategory).MaximumScale = Nteeth
.Axes(xlValue).MinimumScale = Miny
.Axes(xlValue).MaximumScale = Maxy
End With

I would like to add a 2nd or third series onto the same chart using the same scale etc. How do I do this in VBA code? Whenever I add another line to add a series it just overwrites the first series I have shown here.

## Dynamically Chart Series

Sep 18, 2008

I have calculated data (the column and row headings are calculated as well) similar to this for which I need to create an automatically updating chart.

******** language="JavaScript" ************************************************************************>Microsoft Excel - test.xlsm___Running: 12.0 : OS = (F)ile (E)dit (V)iew (I)nsert (O)ptions (T)ools (D)ata (W)indow (H)elp (A)boutA1=

[HtmlMaker 2.42] To see the formula in the cells just click on the cells hyperlink or click the Name box
PLEASE DO NOT QUOTE THIS TABLE IMAGE ON SAME PAGE! OTHEWISE, ERROR OF JavaScript OCCUR.

The chart should update if the data is filtered; so if a user doesn't want to see the 'orange' row they can filter the data accordingly. There is a finite number of rows and columns in the range but sometimes there will be less data. I have tried to convert the data to a table and that works quite well except the legend keys persist: so if there is no data for pillows and stickers the legends still appear and have to be removed manually. Also, there seems to be a bug in Excel 2007 whereby the removal of a chart linked to table data causes a persistent error message to appear.
I know that I need to created a named range for the data series using OFFSET, and I have also read that I need to refresh this formula using VBA but I am now very confused and none of my attempts quite work.

## Each Chart Source Row As A New Series

Dec 13, 2006

my problem is:

I have a whole list of data which changes according to the users preferences
It comprises of a NAME, X Value, and Y Value and the addition of X and Y. (these all have auto filters on them)

The user inputs under these fields, as many rows as they wish (which will be around 20ish)

I want it so when i click a button "CREATE GRAPH"

it selects the highest 10 values (if there is 10 values, if not then all the values) from the 4th column (X+Y) and then creates a graph. i want each row to be a new series...

## Scale Chart Series To MIN & MAX

Sep 26, 2007

I have a Scatter chart that plots a simple XYScatter plot. The data for this plot can be very wide ranging, and for that reason, I use AutoScaling to scale the axes. Nine times out of ten, it works just fine, but it seems that when the X data ranges from about 5200 to 7200 +/-, the autoscaling does not calculate well (example attached).

Autoscale range will go from 0 to 8000, leaving a large area of unplotted graph space.

I thought the original issue was that I may be plotting zeros or blanks, but I've eliminated that problem. I have yet to find another range of values that causes it, but I'm sure there's some. What is it about the way that Excel calculates its AutoScaling that I'm missing?

What do you all recommend to eliminate this problem? Manually scaling it is not really an option in this case, as I want this to be completely transparent to the user for ANY range of data.

## Reference Last Chart Series

Jan 3, 2008

I am trying to create a chart that will allow the user to add/remove series to compare with each other. When adding a series, Excel gives it a name (e.g Series1) the macro is then set to rename it to a particular cell, however the name Excel gives the series varies depending on the order in which the series are added.

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(SeriesCollection.Count)

ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1)

would work collect the last series added, which is what I want, but when I apply this I get an run-time '424' error.

## Name Each Name Series Collection Of Chart

Feb 7, 2008

I hope this passes muster. Anyways, I wrote some VBA code to handle an embedded chart in my workbook. I named the chart "Data" but i'm getting some unexpected trouble from VBA. Last time I worked on this set of code, it ran fine. When I try to run it now, it is throwing up an error: "1004 Unable to set name property of series class" The .name function is not working correctly but everything up till that point is working correctly. I have 5 sets of data in this chart also ....

## Adding And Removing Series To Chart?

Jun 6, 2014

I want to use 4 toggle buttons to be able to add and remove 4 different series to a chart. When the toggle button is clicked, a specific series is added to a chart, and when it is unclicked then the series would be removed.

The problem I am running into is that unless I add and remove each series in a specific order, I will get an error because I may be trying to remove a series whose series number is not on the series collection in the chart.

for example: if I remove series number 2 with the toggle button for that specific series, then the toggle button for series number 3 will remove the old series 4 (which is now 3), and the toggle button for series 4 won't work because series 4 will now have become series 3.

Therefore, would there be a way to remove a series based on the name of the series, rather than the series collection number?

## Determine Selected Series On Chart?

Mar 26, 2014

Is there a way of determining the series that has been selected on a chart?
