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...double clicking and draging a column in a chart to chg data

That feature has been removed in 2007, there is no way to do it.
If this helps, click the Yes button.

How do you create transparent areas in imbedded charts? (for Excel 2003).
When I click on "Format Chart area", then "Fill effects", there is a place
where you can change the transparency settings, but it is faded out and will
not work. Any Ideas?
You can make most elements totally transparent. Ignore the transparency
button, which is only for decoration. Instead, if you set an element's area
to none, the element will be transparent.

Customer credit limit override approval workflow
Hello all, Just wondering if/where we can have the override credit limit
just in effect on either the Order or Invoice and not both. TY
No, the concept is that when you clear a credit hold on an order the customer
must have paid their bill our you increased their credit, which would allow
it to move forward as an invoice, unless, of course, they over charged and
under paid again.

each bar signifies; but these are taken from the associated cell range).
Originally, the chart was labeled by a single text box, separated by spaces:
