Does anyone know if there is a way to create a pyramid chart with altered
shape to reflect unbalanced info. My chart will represent company
organization which has too many middle management positions. So the typical
pyramid does not illustrate. I want the graphic to show more of a rocket
ship - top portion normal pyramid, middle more tubular and flair out at the
bottom. Any suggestions?
Can't you just use a bar chart? People will tend to focus on the fancy
shape, and wonder how you made it, and forget the data it's supposedly

How did I build a true control chart that has the mean in the middle, the

I am trying to create an excel chart to plot times. The Y axis needs to go
from 9pm (bottom) up to 11am. The X axis should be dates. I can get this
far but the chart will not plot anytime 12am - 11am. It will only plot 9pm -
11:59pm. Does anyone know how to make this work? Thank you!
Excel treats time as a fraction, the portion of a day. The date is the whole
number part of a value.
Even though 1 am is two hours after 11 pm, it has a value much smaller. To
make this work you should either use a date and time, or add 1 to the times
equal to or after midnight.

I am creating a manpower report and updating learning curve charts for a

(Power) in the charts gives me the output I need but I cannot figure out how
to pull the values I want into the spreadsheet. I have tried a couple of
functions but have come up empty handed. The RSQ function is not multilinear.
Does anyone know the formula for a power trend line? For example out of 100

y = 1.5326x0.0657
R2 = 0.5744

sets of dependant values for y. Is there any way possible to get around this

One of our prospects came up with a good question... They want to be able to
take a marketing campaign's planning activities and campaign activities and
be able to produce a timeline/gnatt chart for their board meetings.
I assume we have to export then maybe upload into MS Project?
Any suggestions of how this can be done?
One way to achieve this would be to have code read the crm data then export
to an mpx file which can be read in project. You are the first person who
has requested this type of functionality on this group.
