Updating charts

I'm trying to update a chart with more data. I choose
'source data', 'series' then 'values' and select the data i
want to add using the ctrl button but i'm not able to
select some of the cells in the worksheet. When i try to
select these cells the 'Source data - values' box empties.

Is anyone able to help with this? It would be greatly

There's a limit to the number of characters that you can enter in the 
Data Range box.

As a workaround, you could define the range of cells that you want to 
use, and enter the range name in the Data Range box. There are some 
instructions here for creating a named range:

Or, create a summary table on the worksheet, linked to the data, and 
create the chart from that table. To create a summary table, enter 
references to the data in a contiguous range of cells. For example, if 
the data for a chart is:

Series1: A5, C5, E5, H5, L5, T5
Series2: A9, C9, E9, H9, L9, T9

You could create the summary table starting in cell V2:

In V2:  =A5
In W2:  =C5

etc., to pull all the data into a contiguous range.
Then, select this range, and create the chart.

Slow Charts
I had some files created in Excel 2002 (Office XP) which I was using in Excel 2003 without any problems. These files consist of 1 worksheet and around 30 chart sheets. The data worksheet contains 7 columns of raw data, approximately 20 columns of data computed using formulae and approximately 4000 - 5000 rows. Some columns of the raw data and the computed data are plotted in various charts. I've recently upgraded from Excel 2003 to Excel 2007. In Excel 2003, I was not facing any problems in modifying the charts. However, in Excel 2007 it takes anywhere between 2 - 7 minut...

Update question
Soory if this is the wrong place to ask this, but cannot find a NG proper to Windows 7. I currently run Windows Vista and am getting tired of Vista's decision to tell me that it is going to shut down in less than a minute. So have decided to upgrade to Windows &. I note that I can purchase an upgrade versiom for 64 quid from Amazon or an apparently full version of Windows 7 Home premium for 89 quid. My question is this - If I buy the upgrade version will I only be able to load it on a new PC in the future if I already have windows Vista installed? i.e For any future cl...

Pasting chart worksheet as link 2007
A chart created in 2007 and sitting in it's own sheet (not included on the data worksheet) will not display entirely if pasted as link (neither into Word nor PPT) Some of the chart seems to be "cut off" in the linked object. This seems to be connected to how much of the "canvas" is visible in Excel. Viewing the chart in Excel on a zoom so that it fills the whole screen seems to remedy this. Is there some setting in Excel that would allow us to set the worksheet chart to automatically size to window? Or else: does anyone know a way of pasting a worksheet chart as ...

Cannot update table--only does SQL insert
Hi, just another newbie type of question.... i have a new window with its own table. i'm doing a "copy from window to table" &c, and it works fine to insert data the first time. however, i can tell from the SQL Profiler that when I try to modify the data, it does not do an update--it tries to do another insert (and of course, can't).
