EXCEL 2007

Try the following (I have a bar chart on the screen in front of me as I do 
this. It has 9 countries on the Y axis; I will remove 2 of those countries). 

1. Click the graph to highlight it.

2. Select Data. 

Select Data Source window launches.

3. Hit the:-

Switch Row / Column button

4. I now have my countries in a list on the left hand side. 

 - click on France and hit Remove

 - click on Germany and hit Remove

5. Hit the:-

Switch Row / Column

 - button once more.


6. France and Germany now no longer appear on the chart. 

If my comments have helped please hit Yes.

Could you format the points to make them invisible (no lines or markers, 
no borders or fills)?

External Data Source and Adjacent Column / Data
I have a worksheet that gets it's data from an external data source. On that same worksheet, the 2 columns immediately to the right of that dataset are for "Notes" and a date. My goal is that someone can put notes in that column and it "binds" itself to that line of data, such that if the data moves to a different row in the excel worksheet (because of other data changes or whatever), that note stays with it. And if that line of data is removed from the dataset, a refresh would also remove the note. Instead, data in "Note" is binding to the row number...

importing handwritten data into excel

Different data shown based on user input
Bit of a strange one for you. I have a form which has a number of different tick boxes (unlinked to a recordset). Each tick box represents a field within a number of different tables. What I want to do is to have a user tick a number of fields and click a button which will export only the fields they have ticked/selected into an excel spreadsheet. Does that make sense? Let me know if you want me to explain it any better. Cheers for the help. Maver1ck666 Hi, are you using code to do this and not a macro? The basic process is to build the query using the fields that have been ticked o...

Graph not plotting what it should be plotting
I am having difficulty with Excel and was hoping someone could be of assistance. I am plotting a series of graphs with time on the x-axis and water level on the y-axis. The first set of graphs looks good. If you put the pointer over one of the points on the x-y scatter plot graph you see: "EW-5 Pump Test" Point "4321.00" (4321.00, 2445.04) 4321.00 is time in minutes and 2445.04 is the water level in feet. However, my next series of graphs for the same well (plots the same type of data for another event) looks like: "EW-5 Recovery Test" Point "43...
