  • 1. two pies of pie?
    I am trying to create a variation of a pie of pie chart, composed of three pie charts. The middle chart is composed of two sections. One section is shown as one pie of pie on the right side of the chart. The second section is shows as another pie of pie on the left side of the chart. Is such a thing possible? Thanks, Tom
  • 2. Exporting high resolution chart and bug
    I would like to copy excel charts into photoshop. Copy and paste works but I get a low resolution chart. Is there a way to make excel charts high resolution. I already tried using an add-on referenced in one of the previous posting that allows me to export the chart as a tif but it was still low res. I know it can be done because it can be done on my friends Mac--it was just copy and pasted. Also I think there is a bug in my version of excel (the one that came with office XP) The y-axis label gets truncated by one character and when I click on the label to edit the text only half of it is visible. If anyone has any advice for either of my issues I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks. Mike
  • 3. 3rd axis chart
    hello- i would like to create a complicated chart, with what i believe would be 3 axis'. the x axis has 5 categories. the y axis also has 5 categories, but they are split into two parts, a percentage and a total number. i want the graph to illustrate the percentage, and show the value for the number, but i haven't been able to make this work. finally i want to average the percentages from each category on the x axis and create 5 separate lines that illustrate each of those averages on the graph. i'm using NT, excel 2000 any help would be much appreciated. thanks!

  • 5. How to exclude cells from a datasource?
    Hi, I have an XY chart in excel97 that uses a range of cells for the data source. Every now and then I would like to exclude a XYnode from the chart. Without having to reselt the datasource. Is there a value one can enter in the cell that exludes it from the graph (compare: putting text in a cell excludes it from the SUM() function). For example point X Y a 1 1 b 2 2 c 3 3 Gives a graph with two lines connecting the three points While point X Y a 1 1 b ? ? c 3 3 Should give a graph with one line connecting point a and c. Point b is left out. Or is there an other way to work around this? Thanks Bart

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.  !!!????!!!!

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
