Basic chart question

Column A contains dates
Column B contains the salesman's name
Column C contains the gross sales for the day

I'm trying to determine if it's true that when a certain salesman is on duty 
the gross sales increase and when he's absent they decrease.

So column B either contains his name or is empty (if he was not working that 

I have no experience with charts, so any help at all will be most

If it were me, I'd probably look at the data with a Pivot Table and review
the average gross sales by salesman.    Here is a link to info on Pivot

If someone else can assist with other info, have at it.

Saving chart templates
I have created some charts and saved them as templates (crtx). I can apply them to existing chart and, subject to some occasional odd behaviour (plotting agains the ''wrong' axis) it works ok. Not a huge timesaver but you take what you can get. However, if i 'Insert' a new chart using any of three templates I have created - and then attempt to add data to it the workbook is corrupted when I try to save and ALL charts and Range names disappear. I am using the name manager from peltiertech but that has always worked before and even if i avoid using it the pr...

CRM 3.0 Licensing Question

charting performance speed
So am I correct in finding that the charting preformance speed of 2007 is an absolute dog? Trying to chart 16 datasets with 2055 data pointrs each on an x-y chart, with the colours of some of the lines adjusted to keep them in four "matching sets". I have to wait for nearly a minute for a redraw when you flick back a tab. Can't type any headers without taking a break for a coffee. Am I missing something please? Your impressions match my own.

Simple average question
I'm sure this is a ridiculously simple question for most of you folks but I've been trying to find an answer for hours and hours. I have a column of values. In the next column I sinply want the average including data down to that row. So far I have been editing the formula manually but this gets old for several thousand values. In case my question is not clear I will show formulae I am using to get what I want: In column B starting with row 1 and moving down (the data are in column A): B1=AVERAGE(A1:A1) B2=AVERAGE(A1:A2) B3=AVERAGE(A1:A3) B4=AVERAGE(A1:A4) I guess I'm looking...

Can you combine data from 2 worksheets into 1 chart?
My son is working on a science project. He had to track the temperature and precipitation levels in Daytona Beach for 9 years. I put the data in 2 worksheets, one for temperature and one for precipitation. He now has to make charts for the data. We've done the 2 separate charts but now we need to make 1 chart showing all the data. Is there a way to take the data from the 2 separate worksheets and put it into 1 chart? - Jon ------- Jon Peltier, Microsoft Excel MVP Peltier Technical Services Tutorials and Custom So...

Is there an easy way to denote significance on charts
The only way I know how to add significance to charts, such as an asterisk above a bar chart, is by adding a text box. Any adjustments to the chart require rearranging the text box. Adding significance to charts is quite common and I can't believe Excel would not have an easier option for this. Another option is to apply shapes to hidden series. For example, if the shape were an asterisk you could then control the position of the asterisk based on your source data. The asterisk could always appear over the bar even if the bar moved when the source data changed. -- John Mansfie...

Overlapping 2 charts (XL2003)
I have a 5 row 3 column sheet in A1:C5. Here are the 15 values (first 3 are column headings): type day amount A,1,10 A,2,11 A,3,12 B,3,7 I'm aiming to have a chart with 1,2,3 on x axis, and 3 blue values: 10 units tall over the 1; 11 over the 2; 12 over the 3. Then I want a red 7 over the x value 3. So I want to see both 12 and 7 above the 3 on the x axis, either overlapping or side by side. I created a chart by highlighting C2:C4 and hitting F11. I can name that series as A. So far so good. Now I want to overlay B data, so under Source Data I add a series named B with values =sheet1!c5...

Perspective setting won't save in a 3-D column chart
I have a 3-D column chart that has the perspective setting as 20, the elevation as 24 degrees and the rotation as 198 degrees. I change the settings, close the dialog box and click save. Yet the perspective setting resets itself to 15 every time I open the file. I am using Excel 2007. Any suggestions? Thanks. Hi Kathi, I have been able to duplicate your problem, I suggest this is a bug, although there might be some reason for this behavior, I can't think of any.

sumproduct question #3
I have three columns. They go like this: 100 1 2 200 0 2 100 1 0 200 0 2 100 1 2 200 0 0 I've always been under the impression that a + sign represents OR. When I try this formula: =sumproduct(((C1:C6>0)+(B1:B6>0))*A1:A6) I get 900. I want it to equal 700, because I want the formula to say if column B OR column C is greater than 0, then sum column A. I must be doing something wrong. What is it? Help is appreciated!!! Hi use =sumproduct(--((C1:C6>0)+(B1:B6>0)>0),A1:A6) -- Regards Frank Kabel Frankfurt, Germany mark1 wrote: > I have three columns.

XY Scatter Chart Not Showing X Axis
I'm trying to create a quadrant analysis. I have the four quadrants as stacked columns and the real data as a XY Scatter. The x axis for the XY Scatter is not showing. The real data series are marked as the secondary axis. Does anyone know how to make the X axis appear? Usually Excel gives you both secondary axes when you add an XY series to a column chart.

Formatting Linked Charts Now An Issue
We just got upgraded to Micro. 2003 and let me tell you it's not pretty. I previously had a lengthy Word doc with a bunch of charts linked from an Excel worksheet I had. Since the upgrade I had to re-link every chart because the links no longer work, why is this?????? Also after I cut and paste special as a link each chart I can no longer freely move the chart around or even right click to get properties and select the size I want the chart to show. I paste it in the right column of a word doc table so I need to size it to fit into the column and I can no longer do this. This i...

Newbie Question: Adding fields to accounts
I need to add some fields to accounts. All I can seem to find is adding "canned" fields included in CRM. We are a small but growing company that provides cellular and wireless data service and sales. Besides the basic fields included in CRM we need to track the cellular carrier(s) and account number(s) for our customers. Some of them have up to 5 different carriers. We would also like to track the number of phones/units for each carrier. How can I do this? I have looked in the Implementation Guide with no results. Am I limited to modifying existing unused fields? Dave Lagergr...

Data Bar / Progress Meter / Bar Chart
Hi, Could anyone suggest a method of having a text field (or similar) have the behaviour of a data bar in excel 2007. I have a field that displays a percentage and would like to present the information to the user in a bar graph / data bar / progress meter style appearance. The value is only ever updated when the form is first loaded, ie. the values will not require updating/refreshing. The data comes from a query. It would be really great if it could change to yellow at 75% and red at 90% as some sort of conditional format as well? Thankyou. You can insert the microsoft progress b...

Exchange 5.5 16GB limit question
