Legend on Chart
I am updating chart that includes three years of data and want to add 2008.
The data has transferred, but the legend shows 2007,2008,2006. How can I get
2008,2007,2006 in order in the legend?
Change the order of the series. Double click on one series, and go to the
Series Order tab.

I use outlook 98. I have a mailbox with three aliases. People sending
me emails can use any of the three email aliases and the email will
arrive in the same mailbox. Accessing the mailbox once will retrieve
all messages regardless of which alias was used.
If I reply to these emails though, I want the recipient to think that
the email has come from the alias that they originally used. What
outlook always seems to do is use the email address of the service
that is listed first in Tools->Services->Delivery. Is there any way

...Publisher 2003-How does one learn how to use it?
I'm disgusted with Microsoft. I purchased Microsoft 2003
with digital imaging expecting to find manuals on how to
use the product. There was a manual for the digital
imaging, but none for Publisher. How does one learn how
to use Publisher, through osmosis?
Not including an operating manual is like going into a
restaurant and ordering your meal only to find out the
restaurant doesn't supply silverware.
Does anyone know ehere I can get a manual or training?
I appreciate your responses.

I need to create a demographic chart in Excel, but I can't find the proper

can think of for a regular bar chart. (In my world, a demographic chart is a
bar chart with the values pointing in two different directions... Not very
complicated, but Excel doesn't seem to agree with me!) Does anyone know of an

I'm using a Line Chart With Markers tracking 4 data lines:
Red with Circles
Black with Squares
Blue with Diamonds
Yellow with Triangles
The yellow with triangles is very light and doesn't show very well in my PP

do I do that?
Click on that series in the chart, and right click, format series. You should
now be able to change the color of the series.

> I'm using a Line Chart With Markers...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.
The problem is that some charts are positioned slightly different on
their respective sheets then others on other sheets, although some are
identical from sheet to sheet aswell. 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.?
