Change Chart Size

I was wondering if anyone knows how I can change the sizes of charts in 
excel.  But i dont want to just resize by dragging the corners, i want to 
lock the aspect ratio, and change the width to 3.5 inches.  So basically, i 
want to change the width of each chart to 3.5 inches exactly.

Another problem I am having is when I copy and paste a chart from excel into 
powerpoint, all the changes to the size and text I made get changed so its 
not the copy I wanted.  Is there any way to change this.

1) Resize using aspect ratio only after the chart is sucessfully in 

2) You get charts into Powerpoint:

Create the chart in a new Tab in Excel (Right click on a tab at the bottom 
of your Sheet.  Select "Insert" then "Chart"... you get a new Tab.. follow 
instructions and create your chart)

Alter size and font size within the chart tab before copying.

After completing the chart, select the chart and "Copy".  
Go to Powerpoint and simply Paste.

It should past without resizing.

3) Resize the chart in powerpoint... using aspect ratio:

Right click on the chart object.
Format Object

You will then be on a control panel which allows you to resize with aspects 

Hope this helps

Excel 2003 radar chart
It appears that while the radar plot can accept thousands of data points, it is only capable of displaying a maximum of 360 discrete circumferential point locations. If I plot a single series of 3600 data points (one point for every 1/10 degree) with constant Y values, each single plotted point on the chart consists of ten overlaying markers. What causes this limitation, and more importantly, is there a way to overcome it? Hi, Even with only 360 points the axis lines are almost a solid colour. So I guess MS decided that 360 is probably more than enough for a radar chart. What sort of ...

Saving changes to the default tab in a document
Hi all, I seem unable to save a change to the default tab setting in an individual document. I make the change (ie. from 0.5" to 0.25") and save the document. Upon restarting Publisher and reopening the document the default tab may or may not be 0.25"! This is extremely irritating since when the default tab changes back to 0.5" it does so in all text boxes in the document thus badly messing up the document layout. Is it me or is it Microsoft???

Combo box data changing
My form has a subform (Link Child & Master field = ICNNO). On that subform are two fields "CA_Name" and "CA_Decision" and they are both Combo Boxes. A different list is displayed in "CA_Decision" based on the choice made in the "CA_Name" field. This subform is for multiple entries which all pertain to the same ICNNO.

Item description on Purchase Order cannot be changed

However, if we use Item: NOTE Description: * - we cannot override the * and add the information we want to add.

How do I add new chart series automatically in Excel
I may have several dozen or more (even hundreds or thousands) series to add to a microsoft Excel x-y scatter chart. Each series only consists of two data points and represent a straight line connected to pre-defined nodes in a complex 3-D geometric figure. When plotted, the geometric 3-D figure is revealed, and can be rotated to different viewing angles. Even though Excel Chart is not specifically intended for this type display, it works very well. The only problem is automating the new series as the coordinates for each new line are input. Presently I have to do add each new serie...
