After I make my pie chart, in the legend the labels are "new homebuyer
18-24", "new homebuyer 25-34", etc. It's pretty self-explanatory that these
are all "new homebuyers". I need for the New Homebuyer part to not be shown

The Duration field is represented as a picklist on the activity form.

However, at present the CRM Activity form is not customisable through any supported method. Maybe in a future release.

I think you are asking for this formula. It will change the value of current

Sheet 1's A1 cell. Means if Sheet 1 A1 = 100 and you are currently working on
Sheet 2 F1, then this formula will show the F1 value ...Hide Alternate Labels on Date Axis

the labels: '02-Jan'; '04-Jan'; etc.
However, I want to hide the odd dates: '01-Jan'; '03-Jan'; etc. I have
tried the various combinations with the dialog box but can't get
anything to work.
Should I be using a custom formula or something?
