Adding data that is not graphed to chart
I have a few existing charts that show percent compliance by category by
quarter. There are seven categories on each chart. Is there a way to add
the "n" to the chart as a label? I have the sample sizes for each category
by quarter in a separate spreadsheet.
Is this even possible?
You could add a textbox or use a spare built-in title box, such as Category
or Value axis title.
These can either be edited manually or be linked to cells.

I need to add 4 "technical contact" fields (which would lookup the Contact

Is this possible? I've found it difficult to figure out what to do first.
Thanks in advance,
Not possible. You cant have multiple lookups for the same entity.
You also cannot create new relationships between two system entitites.
This will work in 4.0
Not possible, Pezman. N:M relationships are not possible in 3.0 yet.
There is a alternative solution: a new entity to act as an N:M relationship.
In your case, Contract/Contact. This entity has two 1:N relations...Transfering data from 1 worksheet to another

That is the nickname cache. Search and delete the .nk2 file. That's the

I have a problem protecting a worksheets.
Basically there are several columns on this sheet where I enter date,

other columns retrieved from yet another sheet. The problem I have is
that this workbook is used by other people and they often accidentally
delete formulas I have in those other columns. So I wanted to protect
the sheet leaving only those columns where we type in, unprotected.

The 6th argument in this method is for specifying a Range, so you could use
this to start on the second row:

Thats a pretty general question. Do you have any other data bases, if so,

Using the same xml and xsl files, the result of the xmlTransform.Transform
is different depending if a xmlTextwriter or a StringWriter is used. In the
