Getting charts to automatically pick data from a series
Can I get a chart to always use say the last 9 values of a series?
Does excel also do interactive charts?
Yes you can have Excel chart the last 9, 30 or whatever number of values
that you would like.
You'll need to use dynamic range names to do this. Here are several links
that will get you started.
The idea is to create dynamic ranges that will update as you add data and ...No aggregate on chart??
I have the following sql code that I grabbed from the sql view:
TRANSFORM Max(ChartQuery.amount) AS MaxOfamount
GROUP BY ChartQuery.period
My question is that I do not want to use an aggregate for the amount? If the
amounts ranges from 0 - 100000 then that is what I would like displayed on
the left (y) of the chart.
Can this be done, it seems simple enough?
I put off responding to this because I don't really understand the question;
seems that no-one else did either, from the lack of replies.

I'm having trouble linking a dll that I'm writing with my test program.
Both the dll and the program I'm using it with are written in vc++
6.0. If I use LoadLibrary and GetProc to link to the functions at
runtime then it works fine, I can call them and they work. However,
I'd like to have my program implicitly link to them when it loads.
I've tried using these declarations in the dll header file:

We have a workbook ('Book1') that we need to archive every week.
In this workbook there are 3 charts (on a tab called 'graphs') which have

When we 'SaveAs' to a different location the source code of the charts is
remaining with the original workbook ('Book1') and not with the newly saved

This is really about using an excel chart inside an access report but nobody
in microsoft.access.reports seems to know the answer.
Using a grouped field in a database I end up with two values per record
showing the number of 'goods' and the number of 'bads' The pie chart plots
these two numbers. I want the 'good' slice always to be green and the 'bad'
slice always to be red.
Setting the format worked OK until I had 7 goods and zero bads, then the
whole chart was red instead of green.
Any idea how I can fix this?

I would like to plot a radar chart with 360 points however the excel radar

Ideally I would like a polar plot graph where I can enter any angle and
magnitude. Does such a thing exist?
For polar plot you can use the xy scatter. I have an addin that may help.

Hi, I'm new to this discussion group and relatively new to Excel. Im afraid
I have no programming experience either.
I am using Excel 2003
I have linked a number of cells between two spreadsheets so that the second
sheet "mirrors" the first one in the relevant cells and updates when changes
are made. I would also like to link the comments in these cells so they are
also mirrored and updated in the second sheet. Is this possible?
Any advice would be welcome,

I want to change teh colour of one point in a scatter chart, for example
Person Score Age time
A 25 20 1
B 20 14 1.5
C 22 22 0.75
D 23 23 1.25
I want to plot score against age, but highlight the point where the time is
less than 1. Any help would be appreciated
The easiest way is to add another series to plot just the points that
need a different colour.
Assuming your data example is in the range A1:D5 then add this formula
to E2 and drag down to E5.
