It might help if you describe the kind of chart you want (and the data upon 
which it is based).

A Google search for "sales funnel chart" yields approx. 125,000 results. 
Some examples seem to be quantitative (with what some chart gurus might 
regard as unnecessary deception using length and areas), and some seem to be 
merely line diagrams, not based on numerical data.

 From an earlier post. May funnel is another variation?

Also know as tornado or pyramid charts.
See these examples.

run an excel file remotely
Hi all i got an excel application that generates reports from underlying pivot tables. the reports are generated using excel 2003. but most of the clients donot have licenses for 2003 and some of the features of 2003 cannot be used when the file is opened from the client system. for example GETPIVOTDATA is not very flexible as it was in 2003 version. So is it possible to run the excel application from the server without being copied to the client system. This also helps in maintaing single version of the excel file rather than multiple versions on each client system. Thanks in adva...

OLE notes for sales order attaches to more than one order
I am attaching an OLE note to a sales order. After I do this, the note appears on about 10 different sales orders at the same time. If you delete the note from any of the orders, it deletes it from all of the orders. Order numbers are not sequential, not the same customers, not the same sales batch, etc. I can't see any common factor in this particular group of orders. We have been running GP 7.5 for about three years, and never had a problem with notes until recently. The note index value is the same in SOP10100. There is a knowledgebase article on how to update the notes mas...

Removing duplicate records with long names in Excel 2007
Greetings, This is probably a very simple question, sorry. I have annual lists of company names and am trying to make a report of changes in the lists; companies added and companies dropped. The problem is that the names in the register are long and have lots of abbreviations which might differ from year to year; one extra dot, a space missing etc., thus, making the records for the same company differ from year to year. Now, how can I filter two lists to remove the same records? Is there a function to do that? Generally, for the same company, the first two words in the name r...

Scale tab missing on chart format button. Urgent!
I clicked on the chart format button while formatting a chart and I am required to click on the scale tab to change the number of tick-mark labels and more. I know this is done by clicking on the scale tab but I just have the patterns, font and properties. Where is it and how can I fix this fast. Please help!

ALT-TAB not working with excel 2000
My problem is, as in the subject, that pressing ALT-TAB to switch among the files opened in Excel 2000 doesn't work anymore. I tried to re-install withouth success. I can only use CTRL-TAB because you haven't multiple sessions running (as usual in Excel 2000) but only one task of Excel. So, it's impossible to use ALT-TAB. Unfortunately, CTRL-TAB isn't useful as ALT-TAB because you can't switch from the current worksheet and the last used but you have to pass cyclicly through the files opened... It seems to be related to the fact that the same worksheets had been opened...

chart label reference based on the column number
In a worksheet with an embedded chart, I have a cell, S4, where I enter the number of the column I want to chart (these numbers are listed as labels in cells A2:R2). I can't figure out how to translate the number in S4 into the corresponding column letter. For example, if S4 contains "3", the chart title should be =$C$2. I think working with absolute references, R1C1, might be easier here, but somehow what I've tried, didn't work (the entire spreadsheet is based on relative addresses (A1). z.entropic in a cell (Z100) put =index(A2:G2,1,S4,1) Change G2 to whatev...

Saving excelXP file to use on p.c with Excel 97?
Hi i need to save my files i create from my home computer using office Xp to my office p.c which is running office 97. I have tried it but everytime i save my file at work i geta message stating that the file was created on xp and some latest features may be missing. How i can save so i do not get this message or indeed if i can actually do it? Thanks in advance I don't think you can avoid the message - the important point would be to use features common to both - then you may get the message, but it would be of no consequence. -- Regards, Tom Ogilvy Mena <etracing@netconnect...

when form created
I have a form which was created by someone else (not a form template) which is like a questionnaire with empty boxes to be completed. When the boxes are typed in all the margins move to accommodate the words being typed. Is there a way to fix/lock the original form and then just fill in the blank boxes? I suspect this is set up as a table with auto resizing enabled. Displaying table gridlines (Table | Show Gridlines) will help you see what you're dealing with. Then select the table, go to the Table tab of Table Properties, click Options, and clear the check box for "A...
