Using Relative path for XML data file?
Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into
Excel 2003? I am writing a web app that generates report data as XML for the
user to download to their local machine. This data is to be consumed by an
Excel reporting spreadsheet, which contains display-formatted tables and
charts that are mapped to various data fields in an XML Map, which is in turn
linked to the xml data file they will download.
The idea is the user only needs to download the data for updates, not the

will store their...Changing Cells and entering data in them

on the machine.

I would not have thought so. Obviously as it is not a built-in option
the only way would be a work around perhaps using dummy series.
Unfortunately you can create 3d combination charts.
Stick with the 2d view.
