Legend on Chart
I am updating chart that includes three years of data and want to add 2008.
The data has transferred, but the legend shows 2007,2008,2006. How can I get
2008,2007,2006 in order in the legend?
Change the order of the series. Double click on one series, and go to the
Series Order tab.

Question about the way Content Types work between Word and Excel.
I have a several content types set up 6 using Excel and one using Word. I'm
seeing a weird behavior, where when I associated the content types with a

panel, the Word document shows the content type that is assigned however the
Excel documents show the document libraries default content type, and there
are no options to change it until I save the document.

> I'm using a Line Chart With Markers...quick charting question for similar charts on multiple sheets
Hi, just wondering if there is a quick solution to my problem. I have
several charts, all virtually identical except for the data values in
them, and i have one chart per sheet, and about 100 sheets.
The problem is that some charts are positioned slightly different on
their respective sheets then others on other sheets, although some are
identical from sheet to sheet aswell. Just wondering if there is a
quick way to select them all, line them up identically on each sheet,
with all the same size/formating etc.?

Verify that your formulas contain a valid path, workbook, range name, and

Is there a new technique that avoids the error?

it may have been a stuck number key somewhere, so I turned the computer off
and rebooted. No change. Any ideas? Thanks!
Point sizes of the whole chart?
What's wrong with a good old 2D chart? You won't have this kind of
problem, and you won't distort the data you're plotting, either.
