Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into
Excel 2003? I am writing a web app that generates report data as XML for the
user to download to their local machine. This data is to be consumed by an
Excel reporting spreadsheet, which contains display-formatted tables and
charts that are mapped to various data fields in an XML Map, which is in turn
linked to the xml data file they will download.
The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the
whole spreadsheet. However, since I cannot predict the path where the user
will store their...Changing Cells and entering data in them

...learning Excel #3
I was considering learning Excel as an additional tool for my data analysis
Is it better to use data sets that I have previously used with SPSS and
apply the same analysis tools as in SPSS? For applying the appropriate
tools, I was considering using excel's online help.
The second option I have is to use some excel book for data analysis and
apply the techniques to data sets provided with the book.

I don't ever remember the behavior before. And I don't know what I've done
to enable it but it's really annoying.

Depends on the version but (in M2007) go to the CC Account and click on

as well, click on the Minimum payment amount and a side window opens.

The help states you can only add error bars to data series in 2D area. Is
there a way to add them to a 3D chart?
I would not have thought so. Obviously as it is not a built-in option
the only way would be a work around perhaps using dummy series.
Unfortunately you can create 3d combination charts.
Stick with the 2d view.
