Chart Plot Area changes in Excel 2007

I having problems with unstable formats of charts in an Excel 2007 
spreadsheet (under Windows XP).  When I re-open a spreadsheet, the plot area 
is usually contracted to a much smaller portion of the total chart area, 
leaving lots of white space around the edges.  This happens repeatedly with 
some, but not all, of the charts in my spreadsheet.  Some are x-y plots, some 
are combination line, bar plots.  Is there any way to keep the size of the 
plot area from changing?

Excel Security
I learnt that if anyone forgets the password of an Excel file (same to Word or Access files), he can easily get it back by using a tool.

More Underwriting Changes
Last week, I read a national newspaper article about the pressure that was put on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to return to their senses and undo the damage that was caused by their incredibly conservative conventional loan guidelines. As of March 31st, the NEW AND IMPROVED Fannie Mae mentality will sweep the nation. These are just a few of the highlights: 1. GOOD. SELF-EMPLOYMENT. For years, hitting the "self-employed" tab on the Fannie Mae Desktop Underwriting System always produced a more difficult loan approval. The new computer matrix will not unfairly scrutinize th...

Demographic chart?
Hi, I need to create a demographic chart in Excel, but I can't find the proper chart type. Is there a suitable chart type? I've gone through all options I can think of for a regular bar chart.

Excel 2007 files not opening properly..
I have Office 2007 installed.. the one that doesn't come with Outlook. So, I'm still using Outlook 2003. When I double click an XLS file to open it, Excel opens and the file never opens.

quick charting question for similar charts on multiple sheets
Hi, just wondering if there is a quick solution to my problem. I have several charts, all virtually identical except for the data values in them, and i have one chart per sheet, and about 100 sheets.

Just wondering if there is a quick way to select them all, line them up identically on each sheet, with all the same size/formating etc.? Thanks. -- Boon8888 -----------------------------------------------------...

Chart items moving around
Hi everybody! I have posted this before but I never got any replies so I did some testing myself. I I want to share what I have found out with you and it would be great to hear if someone else recognizes this.

I run this scorecard for different business units, take pictures of the scorecards and put in another Excel file that I later make a PDF of.

Simple State Diagram flow chart in Visio?
I am trying to make a very simple State Chart Diagram in Visio. I'm not sure if I should just use the basic flow chart or not, as I'm not familar with UML. I simply want to describe a software program that will move two one of four "states" based on some conditions, then loop back around. I am not opposed to just making a flow chart but was hoping to make it look a little more "professional" using a State Diagram. The examples seem rather complicated, I don't want to have to define variables and all that using UML, I just want to show the four "states...

2007 Keyboard Shortcuts Stop Working
After downloading transactions from my bank, I go into the Register and Accept the transactions. Then I want to mark these as Reconciled. I like the keyboard shortcut CTRL/Shift/M since it's easier to use this then to click through mouse shortcut menu. But often, the keyboard shortcut is not responsive. I've figured out that to "wake-up" the shortcut I go into Help menu and click MS Money Help, then just close the Help window and the keyboard shortcut suddenly is awake and works.

Media player changes Wave volume control
I am using Windows XP and every time I play a video in Windows Media Player, it changes Wave Volume Control, not the main volume, wave volume.

Not until I double clicked on speaker icon on taskbar, I noticed wave volume was very low. Every time I play a movie, wave volume gets changed back to very low. I could understand it adjusting main volume for loud movies, but why wave, not main volume? How do I prevent Media Player from changing it? And Windows Media Player is the only one th...
