Chart wizard funcitonality in Excel 2007?
I hope I'm missing something in Excel 2007. In Excel 2003, the chart wizard
gives you access to lots of options when you create a graph--graph type, data
range, the various series (including the X axis labels), the chart title and
axis titles, gridlines, legends, and others. It doesn't take long to create
the graph with most of the options you want and then tweak it pretty quickly.
In Excel 2007, it seems that every option is a separate button/menu/choice.
Setting the chart title, the x-axis title, and the y-axis title are three
different operations. Ditto for pretty much everyt...Creating a Combination Bar Chart with 2 Lines
I am trying to create a bar chart with 2 line series. The Y-axis for the
vertical bars would be on the left and the Y-axis for the 2 line series would
be on the right (3 series were defined). The horizontal axis for all series
are calendar months (Jan, Feb, etc.) Every time I setup the chart my chart
only displays a single line, ignoring the other line series. The vertical
bars come out fine.
Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong?
Don't use the built in types. Make the chart using all columns. Select a
series that you want to change (click on it right in th...Hidden data when pasting from html page into Excel?
I have a situation where I copy a report, which is generated as an html page,
into Excel for analysis. When a new copy/version of the report is available,
I copy and paste the new data over top of the old in Excel.
I've noticed that the size of my Excel file is growing after each copy/paste
situation. To manage this, I can delete the worksheet where I paste the data
and reconstruct it. After doing nothing else, saving the workbook results in
an immediate reduction of file size. If I simply select everything on the
sheet and delete, the file size does NOT go down; I have to delet...Outlook 2002 and Retrieving Data Error Message
