Radar Charting problems, Can I change...

Hi people

I have 2 queries relating to Radar charts in Excel (Office XP/2002).

Can I change the angle/start position of the first plotted point? I
always starts at 12 o'clock but I want it to start at 9 o'clock. I ca
re-order the data to achieve this effect but the data, to the viewer
is not in a logical sequence if I do that.

Then also, can I change the direction of the plotting from clockwise t

Thanks in advance.

Stella -

You can't do these things (unless someone smarter than me knows how), 
but you could set up a display range in the sheet, so the user sees data 
in the way that makes sense, while the chart source data is hidden out 
of sight. Either data set could be linked to the other, depending on 
whether the user would be allowed to change the values.

Thanks for the information. 

To get around this I have done pretty much what you suggested, 
created a second worksheet that collects the data from the firs
worksheet, reorganises it then the chart is plotted from the 2n

Thanks again.

how do I get more than 19 bars on a bar chart
Hi! I have three columns of data each containing 84 entries. These are grouped in threes, and I wish to create a bar chart to show the comparison between groups A, B and C.

This is fine for 19 entries, but when I click to select entry no. 20, the series clears itself. If I highlight 20 entries and then click on Insert/chart, I get the message 'Series formula is too long'. Can anyone explain please how to over come t...

Automatic Charting in Excel
Hello, I was wondering if there was anyway to create a macro that would automatically open with a .cvs file and produce a chart of the data. I am not familiar with VBA and though I did find a similar macro on this group (posted 10/20/2003), it doesn't open automatically and for some reason gets caught up in an infinite loop. Another option I'm interested in would be a button on the toolbar in excel that when clicked could automatically create a chart. Also, is there any easy way to have it chart some columns but not others? Thanks for your time and assistance! Any constructive id...

formatting or moving a radar chart's axis labels
I am attempting to change the orientation of a radar chart's axis labels. Its orientation seems locked in place immediately to the left of the 360=B0 gridline. I would like the ability to display the axis labels directly over the range rings and along other gridlines, such as 180=B0 or 270=B0. With other charts, the formatting option allows one to select "high", "low", or "next to axis" to change the position of the axis. This maneuver seems to have no affect whatsoever on a radar chart. As a final resort, I suppose I could turn the axis labels off...
