A typical plot that I just can't make work would be for the following simple
data for various aircraft:
X-Axis values (cruise speed - mph) - 315 325 355 520 and
Corresponding Y-Axis Values (mpg) - 0.4 1.11 0.52 0.25
Couple of questions:
1) How do I get even increments of cruise speed on the x-axis, say 0 to
600, in even 100 increments, with data points properly spaced?
2) What is the real difference between Chart Options of Category and

Greetings from the UK...

from 1 through to 4000. Most of these numbers repeat themselves in the
What I want to do is produce a chart showing the number of times each
descrete number appears , its value and the percentage of times it appears

I think ( dangerous for me !) I should be looking at a histogram or a even a

wizards) are not what I want.

Is it possible to create a circular stacked chart? So the radius of the

create a circle from the drawing toolbar, copy the circle, click on the bar

...How do I limit labels in chart legend to only a portion of data?
I am hoping to get a chart that includes four lines of data, but with only
two of the line labels for the data showing up in the chart legend. The two
lines that I want excluded are just straight bars that will include a text
box within the chart as their label, but I have run into problems with simply
slapping a line on the chart as it does not move around when we scale up or
down the two axes. Is there a way to get the legend to only show the label
identifiers with only the two sets of data that I want shown?

You can't include the total in the data table. As a workaround, you

I am trying to lose weight. and simply want to chart my weight each week. I
need it in kilos and don't have MSAcces.
Create two columns:
Column A - Date
Column B - Weight
You could add a column for weight loss total, week, whatever.
I might also add a column for Body Mass Index
BMI = Weight in pounds * 703/(Height in inches)^2
I think the "goal" for BMI is 25.

I'd like to be able to set up zones in an Excel chart. Imagine a bell curve.
