Click in cell w/ formula and get colors in referenced cells
When you click in a cell with a formula, Excel will then put color
around the cells that are referenced.
Somehow I turned that feature off. Now I do not get colors in th
other cells. Where is that option to turn it back on???? I've looke
and looked but I just can't find that option.
Thanks for the help

Does anyone know how I can create a step line chart without having to have 2 data points per x-axis point. What I want is a horizontal line until the next data point and then I want the line to go vertical.
You Will need some form of extra data to get excel to create a step
chart. Take a look at these methods.

You will need to compute those values using formula or a pivot table and
then chart the results.

I have a problem with Excel, the label on the �Y� axis appears

erased and re-installed excel in my computer to no avail. I have also
re-sized the chart and used it both as object embedded and in separate

Can someone help in how to reprsent the negative values in the chart and
which is the best chart to represent it?
What type of chart are you making? In a line, column, bar, XY, or area
chart, the negative values are merely plotted on the other side of an axis.

User plans to plot no more than 8 data series, and Wants series marker to be

the series is plotted.
Current code successfully plots the data, but does not assign marker style
or color the way we want.
