Can not get Excel macros to save chart format -lost in space!
Help??? I've been searching this forum for 5 days trying to find a problem
similar to what I am having without any luck.
I have been trying to use Excel macro to record the creation, formating and
saving of a simple bar chart against my Excel data range but the macros do
not run for the chart. I am able to creat the charts okay but the macro craps
out when I run it.
I keep getting " Set ActiveChart = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(Chart1)"
type errors as if it's not recognizing the chart that I just made.
I am an advanced Excel person BUT not so with VB coding.

I need about 30 charts on each patients sheet, To save me doing eac
one seperately I have tryed to copy and paste them in to the nex
patients details.... But all the charts refer to the previous patient
details. Is there anyway of copying them so that they relate to th
sheet they are copied in to?

Sample scenario: Let's say in each year, I have this many cats:
Out of those cats, let's say that the following number have been neutered:
Is there a way for me to create a form of bar chart that shows the total
number of cats per year as a "background" bar, with the total number of
neutered cats in each year as a skinnier "foreground" bar that is a different
color and overlays the background bar?

I need to create charts from data collected via a com port. As i
stands, the data is written to sheet 1. Chart 1 is ready to plot dat
as it is written. Once the data is complete, I copy sheet 1 and char
1. This results in sheet 1(2) and Chart 1(2). All references to shee
1 on the newly created chart 1(2) automatically changes to refer t
sheet 1(2). This applies to data ranges, Chart Title, Axis names.
When creating text boxes refering to sheet1!$A$1, the reference doe
not automacially change to sheet 1(2)!$A$1. Can this be done?
If not, can I create multiple chart titles?

I am trying to create a bar chart based on key dates in a project.
There are 20 different part numbers, all with individual timelines.
Some parts of the process take many days, some one, etc. I want a bar

throught the course of each individual aspect (ie, 12/2 - 12/8).
I am having trouble doing this with dates.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

...Keep Pivot Table custom chart type
I'm creating a pivot table custom chart type "Line - Column on 2 Axes". The
chart looks great when I create it. The problem is when the user does
anything to the chart (filters the data, adds a new flield of data, etc.),
the chart changes to where both data series are displayed as bar charts and
the second axis is gone. I can't find an event that fires when they modify
the chart, so I don't know that I can programatically change it back. Is
there a way to keep it from changing in the first place? I'm using Excel 2003.

Is it possible to rotate a line chart so it looks like a vertical chart
rather than a horizontal chart? And if so, once it is rotated, can one

The above applies to a XY Scatter chart. Hopefully, you can use that
instead of a line chart.

I have three columns of info in my excel spreadsheet. column 1 has

I can create the scatter plot chart just fine, but what I am having a

next to the points on the scatter plot.
How is this done?
