...100% stacked column chart shows wrong information
I wonder if someone can help me. I have created a table that tracks the
profitability of a particular project and I’m using the table as a source for
a 100% Stacked Column graph.
The source data for the graph is in three rows:
• B21:M21 - contain the names of the months from Nov – Oct
• B22:M22 - money taken in
• B24:M24 - profit
B23:M23 contains the money paid to supplier each month. I need this in the
table but I don’t need to show it in the graph. I just want to show profit as
a proportion of what we bill to customers on that project.
My problem is that the graph seems to show in...why does sorting change a scatter plot graph?
Why does the way a spread sheet is sorted change the look of a scatter plot
graph??? the graph is just a plot of two points, (X, Y) and these two points
are definded by two collumns for a given row. The two collumns don't change,
and the row all stays together, so why does it change where points are
plotted out on the graph when you re-sort it?
Usually, for an XY (Scatter) chart, with values of X in a column and
corresponding values of Y in an adjacent column, for three or more points,
Excel assumes (correctly) "Series in Columns."

I have a column of cells in the format "11/01/02 06:21". I would like to

you probably have to reformat the first to

I put a number into a cell click on the next cell and the first cell reverts
to 0. If I format to number with 2 decimal places it will be ok but when I
try to take out decimal places it goes back to zero,
You haven't said what number you are trying to put into the cell, but I
suspect that the number is less than 0.5.
A quick test shows that if you set the cell to no decimal places then enter
a number less than 0.5 it is displayed 'rounded down' so it will show as
zero, if it's 0.5 or above it displays as 1.
If you need to put numbers less than 0.5 into youe c...Accommodating for empty cells in this formula?
I have a formula in cell H21, for example, reads like this:
is there a way to adjust the formula so that an empty cell in G21 doesn't

Just to give a similar example, this formula =SUMIF(A1:A9,"<>0") adjusts for
any and all empty cells in A2 to A9. It no longer matters if any of the
cells are empty, the formula correctly gives the correct addition of A1
plust a sum of everything between A2 to A10 without any #VALUE! results.

My problem arises when the 0 values fall in the middle of my data.
So for example:

2) I have data for only 6 months (Jul-Dec), the line starts in Jul and
ends in Dec (perfect);
3) When I have data from Jan-Mar, and Oct-Dec, the line connects
between Mar and Oct. I want 2 distinct lines with no line where there
