Disable Automatic Axis Rescaling

Jan 16, 2007

to change the way my chart is presented. Each time I recalculate the series the chart is updated with the new numbers…however because these numbers can be substantially bigger from the numbers of the previous series the chart gets extended (x axis shrinks or extends) to compensate for the different length of the numbers on eh Y-scale…I wonder this rescaling of the x axis can be disabled…I attached the sheet with the chart…

Disable Automatic Negatives

Jul 19, 2006

Long Version: This should be a fairly simple question, with a solution involving unchecking a box somewhere, but I can't find it. Whenever I enter a number in parentheses (for example: "(187.13)") into a cell Excel automatically converts that number to a negative--- "(187.13)" becomes "-187.13". I've been using the apostrophe option as a workaround (i.e., '(187.13)) to store it as text instead of a number, but this is becoming a hassle because it recognizes that (187.13) is a number and alerts me with an error message of numbers being stored as text.

Short Version: Basically, I want it to stop automatically making "(187.13)" become "-187.13" but I don't know where the setting is.

Automatic Calculation Upon Change-way To Disable For Certain Cells Only?

Dec 12, 2011

I have several data validation style drop down menus, and I basically don't want excel to recognize changes in these cells and execute a calculation of the entire workbook. Since there is a large number of calculations being performed in the workbook the sheet gets really slow.

Overall the way excel "automatically calculates" really screws me up a lot. This built in functionality could be a lot smarter in my opinion.

Changing Values Of X-axis, And Descending Order Axis(x-axis)

Feb 8, 2009

Two questions:

1) How do make values on x-axis as words? E.g. apples, oranges, etc.

2) Is it possible to have the numbers on x-axis in descending order? If I can figure out 1), I can do this as well, but it would be nice to know if it is possible to have the numbers on x-axis in descending order.

Excel 2007 :: Primary Category Axis Title Rotates With Rotated Value Axis Titles

May 13, 2014

I've put together code to construct a chart

It all works fine but I've noticed an odd quirk which I can't explain nor can I seem to fix. Here's the (reduced) code :

Dim appExcel As Object ' Excel Application
Dim chtPareto As Object ' Chart
Set appExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set chtPareto = appExcel.Charts.Add
With chtPareto
' Primary category axis


The category (x) axis title should be horizontal, whereas the value (y) axis title should be rotated. Stepping through the code, when I .SetElement for the category axis title, it appears horizontal as planned. However, as soon as I .SetElement for the rotated value axis title, the category axis title also rotates.

How To Create Engineering Graph With Two X Axis And Single Y Axis

Dec 10, 2012

I need to create a graph with a 2 x axis and a single y axis. For example:

Pressure ( PSIA) Solubility (mol %) Velocity (m/s)
200 0.024 1
300 0.036 1.2
400 0.041 1.8

I need the two x axis to be pressure and solubility and the y axis to be velocity, with the data being demonstrated by a single plot (I have only managed it with two plots which does not demonstrate solubility's relationship to pressure ).

For example at a pressure of 200 PSIA (lower x-axis) and solubility of 0.024 mol % (upper x-axis) velocity was found to be 1 m/s.

Second Category Axis & Value Axis To Current Chart

Sep 27, 2006

how to incorporate another category and value axis to my existing chart.

1. I need to add a rank axis derived from my data column (C6-C15). This column should rank from highest to lowest and create a tie if any number is repeated. I have arranged the rank column in cells B38:L38 as they would appear. I would like this to appear on the top or bottom of the bar graphs.

2. Second I need to add the frequency of hits which = 3 derived from cell J1 This should appear on the chart were it is currently titled. This should create another bar graph colored green and labeled 3.

3. Lastly the numbers axis can remain the same as it appears on the chart or if it would be better to align as shown in cells B43:L43.

Add Right Axis That Look Exactly The Same As Left Axis?

Jan 29, 2014

I would like to add a vertical axis to the right of my plot that looks exactly the same as the left axis. The only way I found to do this is to add a secondary axis. However this axis is based on a data series and it does not match the left axis.

How can I make the left and right vertical axis look the same.

X-axis And Y-axis

Nov 7, 2006

I have a bunch of numbers, I need to make a graph out of these:


However, on the Y axis, there should be numbers 1-8, and on the X axis there should be numbers 0-40. I have to get the number on the chart, including the number of times the number is shown in that column. I have no idea how to do that, I tried hundreds of times. How do I put on the chart the number of times for example 30 shows up? I want it to look like this:

Changing X Axis Value

Nov 18, 2008

I have modified the Run as Regular Macro code from this site to only changing the x axis, select different cells and I also only used object 1 instead of the name of the chart.

The problem is that when it is run which ever value is changed last, minimum or maximum, it will turn on auto and mess it all up.

Lookup On 2 Axis

Jan 26, 2010

I have a table as attached. What I have is 2 tabs. Data - is the raw data which shows the date and time of each application per person and the time cut and formatted for lookups. Sheet 1 - This is a rota showing each member of staff.
Below the rota is a definition of each shift, i.e E = Early which is 8.30 to 5.00pm.

At the bottom of sheet 1, I would like the total of each application for each member of staff for the time they have worked for each day.

i.e if staff member N-R worked a late (L) on the 2nd, I would like the number of application taken on the 2nd for N-R between the hours of 10.30am and 19.00.

I have tried nesting a vlookup and a hlookup function but I just cannot fathom it out. I have also tried to use coutifs().


On the data sheet I would like an additional column after the cut time to flag up applications taken for each member of staff during their shift. i.e if N-R takes 5 application on 22/12/2010 between 8.30 and 12.30, 3 after 10.30. I would like each individual app to flag up in its row if taken after 10.30 for this member of staff on this day.

How To Use Date For X Axis

Mar 28, 2012

I am trying to use the following for my x-axis on a scatter plot. Excel is either formatting it into another type, or showing me day by day 0:00 time.

Is this an impossible mission? Below is how my data comes to me, I have no control over modifying it.

3/23/12 5:54:6.795 AM3/23/12 5:55:17.795 AM3/23/12 5:56:31.795 AM3/23/12 5:57:29.795 AM3/22/12 9:11:9.395 AM3/22/12 9:11:45.395 AM3/23/12 8:38:39.495 AM3/23/12 8:39:17.495 AM3/26/12 12:15:28.081 AM3/26/12 12:17:20.081 AM3/26/12 12:19:41.081 AM3/26/12 12:21:22.081 AM3/26/12 12:22:21.081 AM3/26/12 12:24:15.981 AM3/26/12 11:54:45.621 PM3/26/12 11:55:48.621 PM3/26/12 11:56:25.621 PM3/27/12 11:02:57.221 AM3/27/12 11:03:29.221 AM

Format Y Axis With Mm:ss

Apr 3, 2012

I'm trying to chart three columns/twelve rows. The first column has Jan-11 through Dec-11. The second column has Average Speed of Answer (ASA) -- various times from 6 seconds to 3 mintutes 17 seconds. The third column has 00:01:00 (one minute) in every cell which is the ASA Standard which I was going to use to create a horizontal line.

When I chart this the Y axis has labels that are very random (I.E. 0:00, 0:43, 4:26, 2:10, 2:53 and 3:36). I would like to change it to every 30 seconds (I.E. 0:00, 0:30, 1:00, 1:30 etc.) but I can't figure out how.

Chart With Two Axis

I have some simple data and i want to create a horisizontal bar chart with 2 axis (X axis) the top one showing number of stocks number up to 270 and the bottom with Market Cap up to 1,200. (See attached). I set up the chart and it looks fine but it has only one axis so in order to create a second axis i right click on the blue series (no of Stocks) and go through the motions of setting up a secondary axis. However when i do that it ends up looking like the chart to the right with the Bars Cojoined (which is not what i want) I cannot seem to achieve 2 axis with separated bars

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).

Uneven Spacing On X Axis

Jun 25, 2014

What I need to do is have the numbers on the x axis count up with a even increment. For example, 1,2,3,4,5. That part is easy and I can do that, the next part is not.

Next I need the X axis of my graph to have, what the graph I'm trying to replicate calls, a "squared scale". So the numbers need to look like what is above but be spaced in squared intervals.

It would look something like this: 1 2 3 4 5... note the spacing between each is increasing.

Below are pictures showing how the book does it by hand.


I think I could get it to look like this with a dummy series with the axis labels listed but I need to be able to have a point read off the actual values so the dummy axis wont work.
