Transfer Files Using VBA
I'd like to transfer files from several drives on my pc to one cetnral
My routine now is the following
1) Copy the files from drives: A, B, and C; and then
2) Paste the filesto the D drive
3) Delete the files permanently from drives A, B, and C.
As you see this is a tedious routine, which I'd liket o avoid by using
VBA. Can someone start me off with some code on how to accomplish
this. Thanks so much in advance!

I just started messing around with VBA and I got something approaching
what I want (what I want is to highlight a row based on a value in the
1st column). This is highlighting the wrong row though! It looks like all
the numbers are correct... for instance, when I step through it, I'll get
the correct row selected but a different row highlighted! Please shed
some light on this! It's quite frustrating.

Is there a way to know the physical dimensions of a chart object on a

charts to be of the same size (obviously this means that data with a
smaller range of values will be more spread out than data with a larger
range of values).
This is just an example:

I'd like to add an axis with same values on the right side of the chart.
You'll need to have at least two series in order to enter a secondary axis.
On one of the series, change the Axis to Secondary axis.

Any advice? Thanks in advance.
That's how you would do it, a column chart with a horizontal line. On this web page, I give a

mentioned in the first example, but I want to control the width of the

in a business would like to make a chart based on accumulated Earnings &

For example put in earnings for YTD Profit/Loss YTD then I can move the

will say what profit I will make.
Hope ..."Print to Scale" Excel 2007 Charts
In Excel 2003, one could double-click a chart, print, and the chart would
auto-size to fill a page.
I am unable to print my newly-created Excel 2007 charts so they auto-size to

reformatting titles, axes, etc.).
I do not have a "print to scale" option in my page setup.

Excel...2007 charting problems
Is anybody having these problems, and can anybody tell me how to fix them?
1. In Excel 2003, I could select a range of cells and drag them into a
chart and they would be pasted as a new series into the chart. Is this
feature gone in 2007?
2. When I have a rotated Y-axis label, I can click on the text and see an
insert cursor, but when I start typing, only the first letter appears in the
label and the rest end up in the formula bar. When I hit enter, only the new
text from the formula bar shows up in the label.
1) Just Copy the range, right click the chart and use Paste
2) Do not use ...chart zero
Hello, first Post - so here goes....
I am ploting a simple chart in Excel - when the value of a cell, say F5, is
zero (calculated as =F4/F3) or F4 and F3 are zero and F5 returns #DIV/0! - I
don't want to plot that cell at all.
At the moment it is plotted as zero in both cases.
I'm using Excel 2000.
Have just found the other threads dealing with this issue - #N/A and a white
font will do it for me.
Thanks anyway guys

Make a line chart with your two series of data. Double click on of the
series, choose the Options tab, and check the box for Up-Down Bars.
Where the first series' value is higher than the second's, the bars are
one color, when they are switched, the color changes. You can format the
bars as if they were columns in a regular column chart.

I have a data set with categories in columns A-B, and data in columns C-I.
I've configured my chart to use stacked bars for the first 6 data series and
a line for the last one. The first 6 are revenue allocations, with the 7th
being a cumulative total.
Most of the chart looks as expected, but the first category or row of data
is displaying oddly. The figures in this row are all negative (or 0), so I
expect the top of the bar to sit at zero, but it doesn't. The top of the bar
sits at the value of the 7th/line series, so that the bottom of the bar is at
2x that (negative) value.
