extracting individual numbers from "ranges"
I'm trying to get EXCEL to extract stock prices quoted in individual cells
as 52-week ranges --e.g. 11.76-19.90-- and do the following calculation:
(higher price - lower price)/lower price
Obviously, this a problem because each cell appears to handle the range as
text or something. Is there are way to get EXCEL to handle the "text" (or
however else it is interpreting what's in the cell) as individual numbers?
Great thanks for any help.

It's much easier to use multiple series. If it's anything but an XY chart,
use separate worksheet columns that line up with the X values, with values
where the series appears and blanks where other series appear.
It's pretty much as described in my Conditional Charts page:

I have a chart that I want to show home price data with.
The chart will have data that has very significantly varying data values.
For example, one line graph will be 50-100, one will be 400,000 to 500,000,
one will be 90% to 110%.
I would like to show these line graphs on one chart. How to I make a chart

always get the same 4 field result as Row, Column, Page,

If I do it from one source only I get those 10 names to

I defined some named ranges in one of my workbooks. I created another
worsheet that uses references to these named ranges to generate counts using
the SUMPRODUCT function. The result has been unacceptably slow performance
in this workbook when using the autofilter to filter by a particular value in
a particular column. I have the same problem when I manually enter a value
or paste a value into a cell and move off the cell. The application says,
"calculating" for about 4-5 minutes.
Is there any way to improve this performance to an acceptable levesl?
