Pivot Chart Drilldown

I am working on a chart drilldown - I use drilldown to mean that a
Shift+Click opens the underlying data into a separate tab - and
although the event module I've coded works for 1 row by 1 column pivot
charts with any number of pages, I am having issues with drilling down
into more complex charts.

Currently, I am using the series collection, the MouseUp chart event,
as well as features of the active chart, but I am struggling with a
more elegant way to execute complex drilldowns.

Any ideas?

I eventually solved my problem, still using the MouseUp event but I
extended the information collected and eventually was able to solve my
problem adequately.

If interested, visit my website and find it among my Excel VBA

Pivot table, calculating % difference of subtotal rows

Pivot Table question #4
Hi I have spreadsheets that take data via a pivot table from an OLAP cube that is held on a terminal server. The spreadsheets hold figures entered by me and figures obtain from the pivot table. I want to enable the automatic update on the pivot table but the pivot table is sorted by a project number obtained from the OLAP cube. My problem is if a new project is added to the OLAP cube then it is automatically selected from the drop down list. I want to be able to turn this off so that it only selects the project I have previously chosed. For example if I have selected the filter nu...

Need large gap in chart
I am making a line graph with 2 sets of numbers that are very far apart - one set of numbers is around 7000 to 8000, and the other set is closer to 80,000. Of course, I get one line at the top of the chart that is pretty easy to read, but the line on the bottom that represents the smaller numbers is just TINY and looks pretty much straight. My question is this: is there a way to put a "break" into the graph between the smaller numbered data and the larger ones so they are all easier to read? Like a jagged line showing where the jump occurs or something? Hi, Jon has an exampl...

Excel 2007
When you set reverse categories for the horizontal axis, I noticed that the legend (which I normally placed at the bottom of the chart), did not correspondingly reverse. Is this WAD (working as designed) ? If not, how can i overcome this as the reader would have to mentally "remap" the legend to the bar chart. Thanks very much. Hi, Reversing the Axis categories will not effect the legend order. To do that you need to change the Series Order. In 2007 this is none via the Select Data Source dialog. Chart Tools > Design > Data > Select Data. Use the Up/Down arrows in the...

Do Pivot Tables have an automatic data range expansion?
As I add new rows of data to my data base, my pivot table will not expand to include them after refreshing. Is there any way of setting the pivot table to include the entire database regardless of its continuously growing size? Right now, as I add a new row of data I must delete my old Pivot table and create a new one from scratch. Is this normal? You can use a dynamic range that grows/contracts with your data.

Display order of Bar Chart
How do I get a bar chart to display my data in the order I created it rather then in a sort ascending or descending order. I created my vertical axis categories in the exact order I want the bar chart to display the data however, when the chart is created is rearranged into ascending order of the data not in the order of the categories as I developed it. That is not how Excel behaves; when the data is in rows, the first category of the first row is at the bottom of the bar chart and so on, regardless of the y-values best wishes -- Bernard V Liengme Microsoft Excel MVP http://people.s...

Hello, I created a line column chart on 2 axis. I have four data sets. The first 3 should go on the primary Y axis as columns and the 4th should go on the secondary Y axis as a line. However, Excel wants to automatically put both the 3rd and 4th data sets on the secondary axis as lines. I cannot find any command to change the 3rd data set to go onto the primary axis as a column. Any suggestions would be most appreciated! -Patty On Tue, 11 Nov 2003 13:27:33 -0800, Patty = <anonymous@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote: > Hello, > > I created a line column chart on 2 ...

Charts and "global" changes
Hello all, I'm actually working in Microsoft Access97, which uses MSGraph 2000 for charting, so I thought this was really a "charting" question... not an Access question. I have an XY scatter chart (using just points... no X or Y error bars or lines) all laid out just fine, but I have a couple of questions that would make my work a lot easier. When the data first displayed on the chart, every data point had a different "style"... circles, triangles, x's, etc... I had to go into every one individually and change them to a black dot at size 3. Isn...

Pie chart
Is there an pie chart type where you can explode just one of the sets of data on the chart? I have access to both Excel/Powerpoint 97 and 2003, but there doesn't appear to be any differences in what's available for pie charts. Is there an add-in or something for variations on these pie or other charts. Thanks for your thoughts or suggestions.

How do I pass series data x-value range to a chart from a cell?

Drop down list for graphs/charts
My boss wants a drop down box in Excel that will give us about ten different graphs. I did all ten of these graphs individually on separate tabs but my boss wants one tab with a drop down box that when we choose one of the groups, it will give us that graph. Can this be done? Based on the drop-down, in a separate range select the data which you want to plot. And plot this in one graph only. For e.g. you have data A1:A10 for the first graph, B1:B10 for the second. Lets say in M1:M10 use a formula which will get the data from A1:A10 or B1:B10 based on the drop-down selection. Plot M1:M10 o...

Pivot Table Calculated Formula If statement
Hi all, In a pivot table I am trying to add this formula: In the insert calculated field-->Formula field i type =IF('FIELD NAME'="STRING TO COMPARE", 1,0) Any Idea why this does not work? The calculated field operates on a sum of the field, and the sum of a text string is zero. The zero result won't equal the "String to compare", so the calculated field will return a zero. Perhaps you could do the calculation in the source data instead, and add that field to the pivot table. Dan McCollick wrote: > Hi all, > In a pivot table I am trying to a...

Missing menu bar when chart is selected

Stacked chart
I have created a chart that has multiple data. Goal - 2000000 Present - 4,500,000 January - 450,000 I have the column stacked on top of each other. BUT THE PROBLEM IS that if someone is reading the graph they think that presently we are at 6,500,000. Because the goal is below it @ 2,000,000 and it adds the presently on top of it. I need them to over lap each other. So the numbers on the left are correct. I have used a stacked column graph. Hi, Don't stack the columns then. Use Cluster column chart type instead.
