Callouts in Charts
Does anyone know a way to keep the pointer of a callout assigned to a point
in a graph? I am trying to add additional data points to graphs and my
callouts don't follow the point. Is there a way to do this without moving
the call out every time?
You could use a datalabel instead of a callout. Not the same visual
If you do decide to go that route, you may want to use Bovey's XY

Custom MS O...XL Charts: Let my mouse drag all data labels for a whole series.
Excel charts should allow my mouse to drag all the data labels for a whole
series in unison. For example, instead of having to move each data label
one-at-a-time to the right of each column, I should be able to move them all
together. Aside from the time savings, the greatest advantage would be the
ability to move all of the labels a precisely uniform and equal distance from
their original locations.
This feature would be especially useful when one-or-more series in a stacked
column chart is too small to allow enough space to display its labels within
the the column

First of all, thank for the help I received before.
I have another question :
I have an excel worksheet, with about 2350 entries. All of them have an
hyperlink in column A. I need to find a way to copy ONLY THE HYPERLINKS FULL
PATHS of all 2350 cells to column D, NOT THE CELLS CONTENT !!
The reason is that from this column D, I can generate playlists without problem.
In my search for a solution, I came across following UDF which did not work
and gave an error. First of all, I'm not sure if this UDF will solve my problem
an secondly, if it does, how can I repare it ?

...How do I only add every other month to my chart
I have totals for each month for several years, but I would like to just show
every other month on my chart. Is this possible, if so can you explain.
I don't know how realistic this is as I have not seen your data but one
possibility is that you could set it up as a Pivot Chart.
In the PivotChart Filter Pane you can then select / de-select whichever time
frames you like.
Please hit yes if my comments have helped.

1. Create the table the way you want it (with Text for the field field
2. Attached the Excel sheet (as a linked table.)

The API to this SDK calls for an 8 bit char string to pass to it, but it

Do you have UNICODE defined?
If you do then you will have to convert from Unicode string, if not - you
can use cs directly

Depends on what method you have used to make your chart data dynamic.
I don't think charts based on lists or tables will.
But those based on Named Ranges will as long as your amend the formula
to have dynamic column offsets and lengths rather than the normal rows.
