Controlling Gap Width for BAR Chart
I have the following data for example.
A = 2
C = 4
I can create a 2 D Bar chart from this quite easily.
Now If I make the data to
A = 2 , 3
B= 3 , 4
C = 4 , 5
I do want to plot the data on the basis of first two values as
mentioned in the first example, but I want to control the width of the
Bar from the value given after comma. Please help.

...Question about charts
If I have two lines in a line graph and they criss-cross
(like a supply and demand curve), how can I find the exact
values on the x and y axis where the two lines cross? Is
this possible by using Excel?
Let's hope you made XY chats (no Line charts) - change chart if necessary
Insert Trendlines for both (better yet use SLOPE and INTERCEPT functions)
So Now you know y1=m1x1+b1 and y2=m2x2+b2
At point of intersection y1=y2 and x1=x2
m2x+b2 = m1x+b1
y = m1x + b
Its all rather simple algebra.

I'm trying to graph multiple rows, each of which has 3

But I also want the bubbles to be different colors so I
can distinguish them by row. Finally, I'd like to label
the colors with row names in the legend. Is this possible?

I'm having trouble with excel formulas.......
If i have a large table with numerical data and i am interested in
writing a formula that will take all cells with #'s greater then 2 and
replacing that # with the word "Up".
Is this possible?
Any Feedback is appreciated
Formulas cannot replace values in another cell.
They can only return results into the cell in which they are written.
You would need a macro to replace.

I have inherited a company bubble chart that compares the outcome of a
calculation with 3 variables with an ideal. Sometimes project value - the one
that sets the size - is smaller than ideal. In this case the bubble for the

which is in-front and which is behind?
This is accomplished by sorting the data high to low, or by sorting the
series in the chart, larger values to smaller.

Hi, I'm having issues with sizing the bubbles in my bubble chart. I want them
to be uniform, but when I enter the size number for the first one, it changes
the size for all other bubbles within the chart. So either there is one HUGE
bubble and several small ones on the chart, or there are several huge bubbles
and one small one. I've tried starting from scratch, using other numbers for
the size; nothing is working.
You want the bubbles to be uniform? As in, all the same size? Then use the
