How to select series in chart?
I know I asked this question before, but (sigh) I cannot find the
answer now, when I need it of course.
How can I select a series in an Excel chart (XY Scatter) using the
keyboard, not the mouse?
The issue is: I have overlapping series, so it is difficult for me to
select a series by moving the mouse cursor to a point in one series and
right-clicking it, as I normally do.
Someone once mentioned a ctrl and/or shift key combination (I think)
that would allow me to select each series explicit in round-robin
fashion. That is what I am looking for again.
More generally, how could I have found...double clicking and draging a column in a chart to chg data

How does one do this in excel 2007?
That feature has been removed in 2007, there is no way to do it.
If this helps, click the Yes button.

As my SQL server is currently on its last breath I am in the process of

How do you create transparent areas in imbedded charts? (for Excel 2003).
When I click on "Format Chart area", then "Fill effects", there is a place
where you can change the transparency settings, but it is faded out and will
not work. Any Ideas?
You can make most elements totally transparent. Ignore the transparency
button, which is only for decoration. Instead, if you set an element's area
to none, the element will be transparent.

In general, you'd use an Update query. However, in this case I don't see why
you'd need such a field.

Opening Money 2000, which I've used without problem since late 1999, I
noticed that my checking account balance was overstated by almost $2000! I

appears that this balance change goes back years with no obvious single entry
being the culprit. When I run the "balance this account" function, it shows
that the closing balance from my last statement, which was correct and
rectified, is now also wrong and reflects the higher balance. What do I do
now? The only thing that I can think of is to restore...I want to add a mail account without setting a SMTP server. Is it possible?
