How to select series in chart?
I know I asked this question before, but (sigh) I cannot find the
answer now, when I need it of course.
How can I select a series in an Excel chart (XY Scatter) using the
keyboard, not the mouse?
The issue is: I have overlapping series, so it is difficult for me to
select a series by moving the mouse cursor to a point in one series and
right-clicking it, as I normally do.
Someone once mentioned a ctrl and/or shift key combination (I think)
that would allow me to select each series explicit in round-robin
fashion. That is what I am looking for again.
More generally, how could I have found...Opening publisher 97 with a later version
I have publisher 97 on my windows xp and it works fine. However, I had someone refine some work I had done and apparently they used a later version of Publisher because when I loaded their CD, I got the message "Publisher cannot load files from a different version"
What can I do--does this mean I have to buy a later version to match the version he used, or do I have to buy one of those programs that can open other programs. If I do the later, will I be able to use my 97 version to make changes once I get the files open on the later version
