#### remove "linear" from trendline legend entry

```Hi,  I am plotting some data but I only want to show the trends so
I've hidden all the scatter points and am showing just the linear
trendlines.  However, the legend entries are Linear (April), Linear
(May) etc...is there any way to just show the series names without
"Linear"?
Thanks.

```Right-click the trendline.
In the pop-up menu choose Format Trendline.
In the dialog box that appears, choose the Options tab.
Under Trendline name, select Custom and fill in the new name.

linear trend lines do not appear gaps in data
Linear trend lines will not appear when specified. I have a few gaps in my data. I suspect that is why they will not work. Can anyone verify this limitation and/or tell me how to get around it.

Linear Fitting
Hello I have a 512*256 data file. What I want to be able to do is create a new matrix by doing the following First, I want to calculate the linear fit equation for each row (the equation is different for each row). Then, I want to replace every value in that row with the value stored there minus the linear fit equation, where x is just the index number for the row. I want to be able to do this for all 512 rows, ultimately creating a whole new data set Let me just provide you with an example so it's clear what I am asking. So in my data file there are 256 numbers in the first row. T...

linear charting with zeros
Have a line chart covering many cells. Data is added to each cell daily. The data cells use a formula. Problem is, the formula evaluates to zero without a value in the formula's source cell. Thus, the line chart, for future values, goes to zero. Is there a way to have the line on the chart simply "end" without showing zero out to the end of the data range? Thx. -- Bill Hi, You need to adjust your formula so it evaluates to #N/A rather than zero. =IF( <test> , <value> , NA() ) Line charts will not display markers for #N/A and the line is interpolated ...

This is a physical distance in the real world, as my axes are both in milimeters but to different scales.

Linear trendline:wrong equation
Hi, I created a bar chart in Excel from the following data: X Y 73 6.6 78 5.7 86 4.8 The SLOPE and the INTERCEPT functions returned -0.136 and 16.4448 respectively. The resulting equation is Y = -0.136X + 16.448 which seems good enough to me. Then I added a linear trendline to the chart. Excel displayed the following equation: Y = -0.9X + 7.5, R ^2 =1 which is way off (and it's not a rounding problem)!!! The data seemed farly linear to me, how come Excel can't come up with the right equation??? Thanks Jan M. Use an "XY (Scatter)" chart. When you...

forced linear regression
Hello, I have a dataset with a (straight) line fit to it (with regression value and everything). My question is how do I take line with a different slope and force fit it to my data and optimise this new fit (i.e. get a new, obviously smaller, regression value that's a maximum for the forced slope with my data)? It's sort of the opposite of forcing a line through zero, I think. Anyway, is it possible, and if so where do I go to find out how to do it? I think you have to do it the old fashioned way. Attached is a example. If you don't have 'Solver...' on y...

Linear spacing of points in log scale
Hi, I am searching for a formula to derive linear spacing in a log chart. The spacing between 1 and 2 in log scale much more than between 8 and 9. To derive a 'smooth' graph I need more points at low values of the log scale. For a sufficient number of points for the x-axis i am searching for a formula to derive this. Ron, It's raising a number to arithmetically spaced powers that will result in such spacing on a log scale. Try this. Put a bunch of arithmetically spaced numbers in column A, and the following in B, copied down: =10^(A1/\$C\$1) Example: Column A contains 1,2,...
