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

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

This may have been answered many times.
In MS EXCEL is there a way that it calculates all numbers to 2 decimal
digit accuracy instead of the 15 digit default?
Thanks in advance for the answer.
You can set your decimal places in your cells as 2 and then check Precision
As Displayed on the Tools / Options / Calculation page. Be careful though,
it means what it says!!

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.

Or do they only "float" on the page.
They float over the worksheet, but you can adjust the size so that it seems to
fit a cell exactly.
If you insert a picture, you can hold the alt-key down while you move/resize the
picture. When it gets close to the edge of a cell, it'll snap-to that edge.

...SpreadSheetML (XML for Excel)
A client of mine has Office X for Mac. I am wondering if this edition
of Excel supports SpreadSheetML. I have heard that it also support the
new Open XML formats (same as Office 11). Does anyone know if either of
these statements is accurate?
Thanks in advance,
I believe that both statements are wrong.
The XML converter for Office Next on the Mac has not yet been developed.
It's not likely to come until after the PC Office team ships their product
to retail -- until they stop CHANGING the thing :-)
My guess is that the converter won't appear until sometime...Public Folder link to Excel File
I have a user that claims that he had a shortcut to a spreadsheet "in
his public folders" at his old job. Obviously, he's an end user that
may or may not know what he's talking about.... I'm trying to figure
out the best way to accomodate him.
He basically wants an Excel file stored on a shared folder to be
available to all user as either a shortcut, or a link in the public
folders (can't post to a folder as he will be updating the sheet
regularly). When a user clicks on the shortcut/link, it would just
launch Excel and display the file.

I am using Filters in Excel 2003.
Every cell in sheet B is linked to every cell in sheet A. That way I
can alter data in B without corrupting the original data in A. I then
highlight the cells in B that I want to assign a filter to and select
Advanced Filter. I have no criteria so I do not set that. I click OK.
I then select Filter again and this time select Auto Filter. Drop
down arrows appear at the top of my columns. Great, no problems so
far, I then select from the drop down list the criteria that I want to
filter. Again no problems, my list filters correctly.

How can I set up a calendar with 8.5x11 (landscape) pages with pictures for
each month to print on tabloid (11x17) paper so it can be saddle stiched? I
would like the picture on the top half and calendar on the bottom half. I
keep ending up with two of the same pictures on one page and two calendars
on the next page. Thanks, Bob
I assume you are taking this to a professional printer so why not just set
each page up as a landscape 8� x 11 and let your printer do the rest?

only as far as the interface is concerned, but also the functionality in
