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.

Got a problem with program control of the active view. I've got a magnify input in the main frame which only applies to one of the 4 views on the screen. So I have to make sure that it is active before I apply the magnification. Seemed reasonably straight forward, I store the view pointer, pview, when it is created at startup, in my root program and then when the user types in the magnification box, get the pview , do a SetActiveView(pview) and then call the pview->DoMagnify() routine I wrote. Things don't behave the way I expected.

I need to create a demographic chart in Excel, but I can't find the proper

can think of for a regular bar chart. (In my world, a demographic chart is a
bar chart with the values pointing in two different directions... Not very
complicated, but Excel doesn't seem to agree with me!) Does anyone know of an

I'm using a Line Chart With Markers tracking 4 data lines:
Red with Circles
Black with Squares
Blue with Diamonds
Yellow with Triangles
The yellow with triangles is very light and doesn't show very well in my PP
presentation. I would like to change the color of just that one line. How
do I do that?
Click on that series in the chart, and right click, format series. You should
now be able to change the color of the series.

> I'm using a Line Chart With Markers...FIND (Two questions)
FIND is normally the first step of a two-step process:
1. FIND locates a cell with the specific text or numbers
contained in the "Find What" box.
2. Once a cell is found, a different action is done (i.e.,
deleting the cell, deleting the cell's contents, copying
the cell's contents, pasting different data into the cell,
etc). (FIND/REPLACE may not be appropriate for this
action). To perform this action, the FIND box must be closed.
To locate the NEXT cell with the specific text or numbers,
you have to do FIND again, close the FIND box and do the
action. And...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.?
I am defining a range in an application:
Set rnge = range("csv_update")
this works great as long as the code is executed from the worksheet that the
range is on. I would like to hide this sheet and execute the code on a sheet

How can I get a hold of the range on a hidden worksheet from a button on the
"Monitor" worksheet (or any other worksheet for that matter)?

I am trying to make a very simple State Chart Diagram in Visio.
I'm not sure if I should just use the basic flow chart or not, as I'm not

I simply want to describe a software program that will move two one of four

I am not opposed to just making a flow chart but was hoping to make it look
a little more "professional" using a State Diagram.
The examples seem rather complicated, I don't want to have to define

If the chart is on a chart page, this will not work. If the chart is
embedded on a sheet, and you select the chart, it will not work. What you
need to do is embed the chart and then select the range "behind - under" the
chart, then you can use all of the print options, thereby printing one chart
across multiple pages.

Is it possible to link a chart into my current worksheet
like an embedded chart (or something)?
I'm not sure what you're asking. If you copy a chart from one workbook
(or worksheet) and paste it into another, it will retain its links to
the original source of its data. You can change its source data (to its
new parent worksheet) using Source Data from the Chart menu.
