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.

Yes this can be done.
You can take the back-up and restore / install the database in the new store
You can also delete all sales transactions from the Admin.

I'm using a Line Chart With Markers tracking 4 data lines:
Red with Circles
Black with Squares

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.

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.?

Let me set up the problem really quick:
I have data for train passengers in half hour blocks as shown:
11:00 AM - 11:30 AM = 100
11:30 AM - 12:00 PM = 400
12:00 PM - 12:30 PM = 1200
12:30 PM - 1:00 PM = 3200
1:00 PM - 1:30 PM = 2000
1:30 PM - 2:00 PM = 1600
2:00 PM - 2:30 PM = 700
2:30 PM - 3:00 PM = 400
3:00 PM - 3:30 PM = 200
3:30 PM - 4:00 PM = 100
For example, there are 2,000 people taking the train between 1:00 PM
and 1:30 PM.

I'm looking to plot multiple formulas on a single chart, and came across a

which causes errors when recreated in 2007.
A Formula in this worksheet contains one or more invalid references
Verify that your formulas contain a valid path, workbook, range name, and
I presume its due to changes in 2007, and possibly the Evaluate formula as I
cant find it listed in 2007.
