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.

I have a box that calculates discounts or allows me to enter a manual amount.
The control source for it is :=IIF([Discount]<=0, [ManDisc],
([DisTx]+[DisNTx])). The last 2 fields handle taxable and non-taxable
discounts. The fields (except for manual)are percentages. These work OK,
but I need it to round to only 2 decimal places. Now when it is stored in
the table, it sometimes has 3 decimal places which messes with the grand
total at the end of the day. Any suggestions?

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...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.?
