# Xy Scatter Graph Average Point With (+) Around It

Jun 8, 2014

I am supposed to make an xy scatter graph like the one drawn of paper. The average point need to have a "cross" around it. So far I can just plot the points. I have added the average point as secondary series. I just need to put the "+ sign or cross around" it.

## Calculate Maximum Point On Curve From Xy Scatter Graph

Jan 18, 2008

I have put my values into a XY scatter graph but need to find the maximum point i.e when the gradient is zero. I am using visual basic to obtain my data and draw my graph.

## Make A Scatter Graph That Will Graph The Attached?

Mar 21, 2014

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.

## Find A Data Point On XY Scatter

Jun 11, 2008

I now have a XY scatter graph with 109 individual points (representing schools) and a macro that tells you the plot details when you hover over. It's ok if you want to know which school is down the bottom but if you don't know where the desired school is in the first place, it's a lot of trial and error before you find it.

What could I look to add that gives the user the option to have a single data point highlighted (on selection?) so they don't have to manually look for it?

## Conditional Data Point Colors For Scatter Plot Chart

May 5, 2008

I have to create a chart XY Scatter plot in excel. I have to differentiate the data points color based on the another column "category". Now I can change the data points color manually. Since the number of points is huge, is it possible to color the data points based on a column?

## Plotting On Scatter Graph

Jul 15, 2009

We have a special testing machine in the lab I work in, and it measures reflectivity from reflective vests etc. A special instrument takes a reflective reading and reports back a X and Y value which is used then as a co-ordinate and gets plotted on a graph.

The machine measures for 8 colours, and takes four readings, so for example the first color will be Flourescent Yellow. and then it produces 4 "X,Y" readings, which get plotted onto a graph, and joins all 4 points to create a box as shown in the link >> Graph with joined plots

This is a small capture of the spreadsheet with the values >> spreadsheet

Basically, I need to know how to take the values in columns X and Y, and then make it plot onto a graph as one point, and then join the four points for that one colour,

end result being the grapgh will have upto 8 boxes on it.

## Coordinate Lines On Scatter Graph?

Jun 28, 2012

I have the following data points:

A
B

1
X
Y

2
0.18
0.52

[Code] ......

And can create a scatter diagram fine. However, I've been asked if it's possible to show on the graph, for each point a line to it's respective X and Y co-ordinate. For example, for row 4 (in red), on the same scatter graph, I'd like there to be two lines for this point,

Line1 drawn from (0.1, 0) to (0.1, 0.26) and
Line2 drawn from (0,0.26) to (0.1,0.26)

I know it's possible to overlap graphs in Excel, but I can't find how to achieve this with scatter plots

## Scatter Graph X Axis Grouping

Feb 28, 2008

I would like to graph the data shown below using a scatter graph. However, when I use the cart wizard it assigns numerical values to each data point and then plots the data accordingly. How can I get the scatter graph to group the assets with the same ratings together? Note, I don't want to have to assign values to assets with the same rating each time. I have attached the spreadsheet so you an see the problem.

## Change All Line Thicknesses In Scatter Graph

Jan 2, 2013

I have an XY scatter with 40 or so different lines displayed.I want to change the thickness of all of the lines. I dont want to have to try and select them individually and change them. Is there any way to do this? Perhaps changing the default thickness of lines for this type of graph?

## How To Prevent Large Scatter Graph Being Squashed

Apr 1, 2013

I am trying to plot a scattered line graph that contains nearly 4000 points on the y axis. The points represent a day. The x axis is the percentage belonging to that day. The problem that I am having is that the graph looks squashed together and the line is very thick because of this. One of the reasons for this is that a lot of the 4000 points have similar percentages so the line just moves a tiny bit. Is there a way that I can make the graph look more presentable?

The following is a picture of how it looks. You may need to enlarge it to see it properly.

## Start Scatter Line Data Later In Graph?

Jan 13, 2014

I am reporting on the amount of certificates issued over a period of time. Basically the government stopped released data on the amount of one type of certificate being issued during this period and started releasing data on another type. I am having trouble displaying this other data which starts around half way into the time period. So all the data starts in June 2010... but this other data starts in June 2012.

## Auto Generate Table For Scatter Graph

Oct 31, 2006

after spending hours searching the forum, I begin to seriously doubt my ability to even formulate a suitable search question. My problem SHOULD be a known one, but I am unable to find any clues. Here we go:

I have made a pretty stright-forward forecasting model. It is used to calculate economics of a coal fuelled power plant (even though that shouldn't matter). The outcome is, among other things, a single number for Profit / MWh in Euros. There are several input data, such as fuel price, price for CO2 emission rights, operational expenditure, capex, etc.

My idea, then, is to lock all in-data parameters except ONE, then let this variable vary incrementally and then produce a new small table with a) the variable data (example: price for CO2 rights ranging from 10 to 50 Euro in 2 euro steps), and b) the resulting net profit in each case. Ideally, I wish to be able to chose which indata to lock and which to vary, i.e. solution need to have certain flexibility.

NB: The calculations are not that simple, i.e. I cannot use a simple formula - I need to use the exising output cell(s) to feed data.

How do I do this?

The outcome should be basically two rows with a suitable number of columns (or the other way around, two columns in X number of rows). The table will then be used to produce illustrative graphs.

I guess I could hard code a table by simply enter data, but heck, that's not the way to use Excel!

## Category X Axis Labels On Scatter Graph

Apr 4, 2007

I have a set of data which I need to plot both unordered and ranked.

For the unordered (as is) data, a line graph is fine, as it gives the category labels along the x axis.

For the ordered data, i have a row with the ranking in, and then plot an xy scatter graph, so the values increase.

This obviously has the rank numbers along the x axis, not the corresponding category labels.

Is there anyway to force this? I know there are chart labelling add-ins on here, but our IT dept blocks the download.

The attched file is a very small example.

## VBA Needed To Make Separate XY Scatter Graph For Each Group At A Time And Must Be Unique

Aug 19, 2014

I have 5 different groups for that i have to make XY scatter graphs and my data looks like this

XY

5902
5907
5345
5234
5209

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.

## Textbox In A Graph Locked To A Point?

Feb 15, 2012

I want to insert a text box into a line graph. I want the box locked onto a data point in this graph. The problem I am having is the graph is updated daily with more data so the point moves so I have to drag the box daily. Is there a way to fix this so it works automatically?

## Combine (Overlay) Bubble Chart & Point Scatter Chart

Jun 30, 2009

I would like combine (overlay) a bubble chart with a connected point scatter chart. I understand that, without VBA, this is not possible. However, I understand that, by using VBA, the markers of a scatter chart can be configured as circles with their size proportional to values in a specified column. This pseudo-bubble chart can then easily be combined with a connected point scatter chart.

My question is: does anyone have any VBA code to share that shows how to configure a scatter chart as the type of pseudo-bubble chart described above.

## Display Intersect Point On Graph With Two Curves?

Oct 2, 2004

If I have a graph with 2 series of data plotted, how can I display the x-axis' value when these 2 curves intersect each other?

## Determine Breaking-Point In Graph/Chart

Jan 27, 2010

finding a function/formula for determining the breaking point (Yvalue) in a graph, that doesn't necessarely equals the maximum value of that curve!

So the curve in the sample is a stress strain curve (tensile test) of a fibre and at the end it breaks and the Y value returns to 0. I would like to determine that Y value before it is 0, so the last Y value before it returns to zero.

I thought of a formula like:
display last y value before it drops with 90%...
but I don't have a clue how to write it in maths...

## Grade Point Average Using AVERAGE IF AND

Sep 1, 2006

I am attempting to calculate Grade point averages for my students for all classes. There are 5 columns of grades to be considered. I frist assign values of 0-5 to the grades then average the points. My problem is that I want the AVERAGE to ignore the zero but it calculates it as well. (I enter a 0 if I have no grade for that class.) I have tried the{ } to make it an array formula but this also did not work. Here is what I have, can anyone help?

=SUM(AVERAGE(IF(AND(L2>89,L2<100),5,IF(AND(L2<90,L2>79),4,IF(AND(L2>69,L2<80),3,IF(AND(L2<70,L2>59), 2,IF(AND(L2>0,L2<60),1,0))))),IF(AND(T2>89,T2<100),5,IF(AND(T2<90,T2>79),4,IF(AND(T2>69,T2<80),3,IF( AND(T2<70,T2>59),2,IF(AND(T2>0,T2<60),1,0))))),IF(AND(AB2>89,AB2<100),5,IF(AND(AB2<90,AB2>79),4,IF(A ND(AB2>69,AB2<80),3,IF(AND(AB2<70,AB2>59),2,IF(AND(AB2>0,AB2<60),1,0))))),IF(AND(AJ2>89,AJ2<100),5,I F(AND(AJ2<90,AJ2>79),4,IF(AND(AJ2>69,AJ2<80),3,IF(AND(AJ2<70,AJ2>59),2,IF(AND(AJ2>0,AJ2<60),1,0))))) ,IF(AND(AR2>89,AR2<100),5,IF(AND(AR2<90,AR2>79),4,IF(AND(AR2>69,AR2<80),3,IF(AND(AR2<70,AR2>59),2,IF (AND(AR2>0,AR2<60),1,0)))))),-1)

I know it is huge. The syntax is correct. It calculates the average, but always for all 5 columns. It will not ignore a 0 in a column.

## How To Create Mixed Line / Bar Graph With One Data Point

Jan 6, 2012

Ok, so here's the trick:

I know how to create combo or mixed graphs with line/bars on single axis, and secondary axis. I even know how to do mixed stacked and unstacked columnar charts...

But how do you depict in single view graph

a single bar (1 datapoint) with a single line (upper control limit e.g. target).?

And I don't want to to use shapes to draw the target line.

I want the target line to be automatically plotted by Excel...

## Determine Half-Way Point Of Bar Series On Bar Chart/Graph

## Calculating AVERAGE DEVIATION From A SPECIFIED POINT?

Jul 29, 2009

I have a set of % score values (e.g. 88%, 94%, 82%, 67%)

I would like to know if there is a relatively simple formula that can be used to calculate the AVERAGE DEVIATION from 100%, as opposed to the AVERAGE DEVIATION from the mean, which is what the excel function =AVEDEV will return.

E.g. The Average Deviation from the mean for the the above set of values is 8.25%, whereas the Average Deviation from 100% is 17.25%

I can create a complex manual formula which sums absolute values of the variation from 100% of each score, and then divides by the count total of the number of scores, however this is flawed for several reasons, including the fact it is very time consuming when used across a large set of scores, and it is corrupted when a non score exists in a cell (some of the 'scores' may be '-', in which case they should be ignored and not included in the calculation of the average deviation from 100% by treating as a 0% score (and a deviation of 100% from 100%).

## Stacked Bar Graph With Average Line

Mar 24, 2009

We are trying to create a stacked bar graph with an average line. Each time we try to add in the average data to the graph it adds it to the stacked bar. The stacked bar should represent the inpatient & outpatient cases at a hospital for the current year (months showing across the as columns). The line should represent the previous 2-yr average total. Anyone have an idea how to add a line to the stacked bar graph? It has us stumped.

## Automatically Change The Point Name To Match The Point Name In Column

Dec 10, 2008

I have a pivot table as shown below which is pretty straight forward however I am trying to create a macro that will automatically change the point name to match the point name in column E then copy that resulting dispaly to another sheet then pick the next point name in line and do the same thing and repeat for 50 rows, so my end result will be 50 pivot tables ready for printing. I can do this manually but I am trying to make it automatic...BTW the point names in column E change everyday but the pivot table supports the name changes.

Option Explicit
Sub PointName()
Dim Ws As Worksheet
Dim Rng As Range, Cel As Range

Set Ws = ActiveSheet
Set Rng = Range(Cells(2, 7), Cells(Rows.Count, 7).End(xlUp))

For Each Cel In Rng
Ws.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Point Name").CurrentPage = Cel & " "

Ws.Columns("A:B").Copy
With ActiveSheet
.Paste
.Name = Trim(Cel)
.Range("A1").Select
End With
Next
Ws.Activate
End Sub

I turned it off for a while and when I turned it back on I am getting an error
Unable to set the _Default property of the PivotItem class

Debugger is highlighting

Ws.PivotTables("PivotTable1").PivotFields("Point Name").CurrentPage = Cel & " "

## Make A Graph That Will Graph Against Time

Jun 11, 2006

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.

## Line Graph: (line Graph To Display An Amount Over Time)

Dec 30, 2008

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).

## Scatter Chart

Jan 31, 2007

Charting query:

Data: starting from row1
Column A Column B Column C
Supplier Sales Rating
Sup1 100 5
Sup2 100 3
sup3 65 5
sup4 80 4

Column B (Sales) is the X Axis and
Column C (Rating) IS THE Y Axis

Query:
On the Scatter chart when I want to show data Labels or when I hover the Mouse over the Points (100,5), for example, how do I get the corresponding Supplier Name to show as well ?

## Labeling X-axis On X Y Scatter?

Apr 16, 2014

I've got two columns of information plotted against one another in an x,y scatter. I need the x-axis to reflect each of the 42 numbers I've added in the column and not a preset or fixed range of numbers. (I need to see the actual number that I assigned each x-plot point on the x-axis and not on the plot point itself).
