I need to create some graphs from data that is derived from a long
series of separate calculations on my source data. For aesthetic
reasons, I would like to hide all the "interim" calculations on the
spreadsheet, but I've noticed that as soon as I hide the interim data
(i.e set the row height to zero), the detail on the graphs disappears.
I presume that this is a design feature feature of Excel (I supoose I
can just about accept the rationale for it), but does anyone know
whether there's a way around this?

I added a text box to a chart and when I click off of it, the text box disappears (goes behind the chart). I have tried Bring to Front and Bring Forward, and it may or may not stay visible and print. I have clicked on the frame of the text box (it changes pattern) and tried Bring to Front - same problem.
The text box is on the worksheet, not the chart. To fix the problem,
Select the text box, and choose Edit>Cut

I have some bubble charts which are maintained by a VB script i wrote.

the bubbles correctly and even the sample colour box in >format data series>

Hi I'm trying to create a bar chart for my company for turnover against

where the turnover came from (therefore stacked). Can I have some bars fixed
and some stacked on a chart please?

I want to show monthly figures with a line chart, with the second year coming
after the first, the third year after the second, etc. I don't want the
years to bunch up, ie 3 years-worth of bars for Jan, Feb, etc. I want
Jan-Dec 2006, then Jan-Dec 2007, and so forth. Thanks for your help!
Create a table with the dates across the top e.g. Jan-07, Feb-07, etc, then
have the monthly sales figures below the dates. Select the dates and the
sales numbers and click on insert chart.

That probably means that Excel thinks your data are not numeric. If the
values you are plotting are in, say, B2:B5, in some empty column, say C,
starting with C2, enter =ISNUMBER(B2) and copy down to C3:C5. What do you

Does anyone know if it is possible to show multiple task lists (i.e. a personal list and a work-related list) side by side in the task list view by default? It's simple in the calendar to show two calendars simultaneously, and it seems completely ridiculous not to include the same functionality in the task list view. Any help would be appreciated.
No, but you can use the right click on the additional task list you want to

You'll need to make independent pivot tables for each chart.
