ehhh, is there a way to automatic size the x-axis of a chart

I need to make a table for breeding eggs. Some species need 28 days but other 
require 70 days. Now I created a chart showing all 70 days, but I rather have 
a chart that does automatic sizing with the days needed. The days needed for 
breeding can be found in a cell.

Is there a way to enter a formula in the x-axis value for a chart?
thanks again!

you can use a defined name with that cell as a parameter or just use an 
automatic defined name such as
insert>name>defined>name it>in the refers to box use an offset formula..
then in the source use yourfile.xls!yourdefinedname

Bubble Chart with text as description of an axis
I want to create some kind of portfolio chart for purchasing. The x-axis shall show the supply risk. The x-axis shall show the costs.

How do I use the text "high risk", "low risk", "high costs" and "low costs" as description of the axis. At the moment it automatically creates me figures there.

Hi, A "Marimekko/Lasagne chart" is a valuable format that MS does not support. Although several excellent solutions have been developed (S Bullen, etc), they have their flaws. For 2003 I have some great code that disassembles a Stacked Column chart, scales the Category-axis and puts it back together again. This is done in PPT with VBA. There is actually an order for breaking up a chart that I have parsed (in object order: Points, Value axis,Category axis, Point Labels, Value Axis delimiters, Category names and finally the Legend (any comment to this?) 2007 creates problems!

Attached images
Sorry for reposting this one, but I think it might have gone unnoticed: Hi, Using Outlook 2003, there is the new resampling option for attached images. I really applaud that innovation, saves time and space when sending images that comes straight from the camera. Really good. However, I miss a 800x600 pixels option. Is it possible to have that one? 640x480 is almost too small these days and 800x600 could be just right for a small sample. I have not found any settings for this function, neither size nor compression. Are those settings just hard-coded? Regards, -- Lars Forslin "Doing ti...

Best way for multiple people to edit Outlook & synch with Pocket PC?
My department uses Exchange Server, so my life is simple: Outlook is just operating in client mode, and my PDA's synch using machines at school or at home. No worries. My wife's department, unfortunately, does not use an Exchange Server. So I figure that using Outlook in stand-alone mode, with ..PST files, is the best way to synch her Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks.

What we want to do is enable her to add data from an Outlook client either from her home machine or from her school machine, and sy...

naming references in workbooks in Excel X
Having difficulty in applying Book-Level and Sheet-Level Names in Workbooks. When I define a name in the Define Name dialog box and I then select the name in the Name Box, it will select the reference on the worksheet that I have used to define the name. If I then move to another worksheet in the same workbook with identical layout, the name I have defined appears in the Name Box, but when I select it, it returns to select the reference in the Worksheet where I made the original definition. This does not always happen but I cannot find a sure way of defining names in one worksheet that will al...

File size limits and workarounds?
Hi All, I've run into the 2 gig file size limit on Outlook 2000 a couple times now. Is there a way to clean the files so I can avoid this in the future?

I've done this once before I think, so I know I'll hit it again. Just wondering how to avoid all this. Thanks, me Maybe use the Archive options?

Recommended Way to Implement Automation
I'm considering adding automation to my MFC application. However, it occurs to me that COM appears to be on the way out while .NET appears to be on the way in. So where does that leave automation?

Creating custom charts in Excel 2007
When creating charts in earlier versions in Excel, it was possible to select a custom type of a column chart with one series displayed as a line. I can't find this in Excel 2007 - is it still there somewhere? Any help would be gratefully received! As always, you can build your own custom chart. (The built-in custom ones are not too flexible anyway.) For example, to make a line-column chart, make a line chart, then right click on a series, choose Chart Type from the pop-up menu, and choose the column chart type for the selected series. Repeat as needed. To put a series onto the secon...

How to automatically refresh a form

On the form is a subform which shows the current "jobs in progress". How can I automatically update that subform - say every 5 minutes? I saw the TimerInterval property on the form's properties page, but the "Help" info wasn't very helpful. Thanks for any help, Darrell The TimerInterval is the frequency you want the OnTimer event to occur in Milliseconds. 300,000 would be 5 minutes. You could then simply requery the SubForm i...

Simple ways to modify Outlook profiles when changing server.
