  • 1. Stacked bars
    I have a bar chart that shows 8 weeks of data, with the weeks being the X axis; the Y is the amount. There are three bars: total opened this week, total closed this week and total still open for the year. I have a breakdown by business unit for the total still open for the year which my boss wants represented by a stacked bar. My question is: Can I incorporate ONE stacked bar into this chart? The other two bars have no breakdown and don't need one. I can't think of a way to do this. Any suggestions? Or should I just create a different chart with that information for him?

  • 3. Area chart dives to zero when data series stops
    I have a series like so: Jan 10,11,13,12 Feb 10,12,13,12 Mar 11,11,13,14 Apr 12,13,13,13 May Jun Jul And so on - the rest of the year is blank. When I draw an area chart for the full 12 months the series draws an area up to April, then plummets to zero in May. I want the area to just stop at April. My cells use the formula =IF($A11<=$D$17,G11,NA()) therefore, the NA stops any line charts goinf beyond April, but the area chart is more problematic. Please help!!
  • 4. Loosing formatting when refreshing data in Pivot tables Excel2003
    I am currentlty using Excel 2003, when I refresh data in a chart that uses a bar and a line (piviot), the formatting is removed and teh Bar and Line no longer who together. Is there any way around this? I have tried 2007 and it works prefrectly, but I only have 2003 available
  • 5. pivot chart gridlines
    I need to make major gridlines between the outer of my two X axis groupings in a pivotchart. In other words, I have 2 levels of rows in my table, which translate into an "upper" and "lower" axis label for the chart. I want to have gridlines that show the divisions between the lower axis label (the ones that occur less frequently). Any way to do this? I am using '07. When I've tried to select the axis, it is treated as one general one, not as two sets of grouping. So my problem is how to isolate the one of the groupings and indicate I want to have gridlines for that. -- Boris

It does not seem that it would be too difficult to set up Excel 
to do what you want. See the Wikipedia stub on Bland Altman. 
That's just what I did since I had not realized that Bland and 
Altman had arrogated the standard Tukey mean-difference plot, as 
is it is still known as in other fields.

1.Bland Rows

My spreadsheet has 250 rows and A thru AG in columns, all cells are bordered. 
 All of the columns are used if a row is used.  My sheet has 15% more rows 
than our highest use this year so that I am sure our office does not run 
short of rows (my workbook has 12 of these sheets because we track the info 
monthly and forward the sheets as filled out to other personel). 

My question is how do I print the sheets (only one month is printed at a 
time) to print only the rows that has been filled out, all of the sheet rows 
are continuous, we have no unused rows except for the ones left at the bottom 
that are unused.  when ever I print the sheets it always prints a few extra 
pages from the bottom that are just the gridding.  I don't want to have to 
delete all of the unused row before I print the sheet. 

2.Eliminating bland from Data Validation list?


I looked around other postings but could not find the answer -- what I'm 
having a problem with is thta in my data validation list, I have a range set 
(which refers to column H) -- the number within the range can change, and I 
sort it every time it does change so that there are no spaces between values. 

The problem is that there are numerous blanks in the list at bottom, after 
the last actual value in the range.  Is there any way to get rid of those 
blanks?  I tried deleting (delete shift up) all blank cells after the last 
value and through the last cell (H65536), but this doesn't help.  Below is my 
code.  Thanks!

    With .Range("B2").Validation
        .Add Type:=xlValidateList, AlertStyle:=xlValidAlertStop, Operator:= _
            xlBetween, Formula1:="=dvrange"
        .IgnoreBlank = True
        .InCellDropdown = True
        .InputTitle = ""
        .ErrorTitle = "Please select value"
        .InputMessage = ""
        .ErrorMessage = "Please select a value from the drop down menu."
        .ShowInput = True
        .ShowError = True
    End With


3.plots sent to to a chart tab do not show plot & I loss the plot

I have a spreadsheet that has a chart tab with a plot of data from another

This is happening now in all my spreadsheets the plot can be created within a 
spreadsheet but as soon as I move it to a tab the plot is lost and the chart 
tab has nothing in it.  !!!????!!!!

4.Removing Plot lines between plot points on a line chart

A 2003 file being opened in 2007. Contains a line graph. I wish to remove a 
plot line between two points. The lines right now or dotted, when I go 
through the process of entering into the chart options and click on "No plot 
line" nothing happens and the dotted lines remain. ANy suggestions? Or is 
this a converting issue going from 2003 to 2007?

5.plotting long plots

I have a HP designjet 110 nr plotter. I've created a plot that we nee
to show drilling activity. My first plot was 24"x36". Plot works grea
and to scale. My next plot was to be 24"x72". Now the charts will no
even display in Print Preview. I can scale back the plot where it i
about 48" and it will preview and plot, but I need it to go out eve
futher than 72 inches. I may go out as far as 30 feet.

I have images on the plot area and it will print it just fine at th
farther distances
