#### Line chart for every 5th cell in a row

```I have no idea how to do this, i cannot select individual cells manuall
because there is too much data and i want it to pickup every 5th cell i
the row.

I want one range on the line chart to plot B17, G17, L17..... etc.

Then i want the next range to do D17, I17, N17.....etc

So going up 5 letters of the alphabet at a time.  One starting at B on
starting at D

Any ideas?

Cheers
Ke

```One way ..

Assuming the data is in Sheet1

In Sheet2:

Put in A1: =OFFSET(Sheet1!\$B\$17,,COLUMNS(\$A\$1:A1)*5-5,)
Put in A2: =OFFSET(Sheet1!\$D\$17,,COLUMNS(\$A\$1:A1)*5-5,)

Select A1:A2, fill across say, 3 cols to C2

A1:C1 will return the figures from Sheet1's B17, G17, L17
A2:C2 will return the figures from Sheet1's D17, I17, N17

Now we can plot the graphs on these 2 ranges ..

cell contents revert to 0 when i click on the next cell
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, Help please 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?

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.

line chart with NA() values
12 month line chart, with some values being 0. I am using an if statement that turns any 0 values to #N/A so they do not show on the graph (which is what I want).
