How to select series in chart?
I know I asked this question before, but (sigh) I cannot find the
answer now, when I need it of course.
How can I select a series in an Excel chart (XY Scatter) using the
keyboard, not the mouse?
The issue is: I have overlapping series, so it is difficult for me to
select a series by moving the mouse cursor to a point in one series and
right-clicking it, as I normally do.
Someone once mentioned a ctrl and/or shift key combination (I think)
that would allow me to select each series explicit in round-robin
fashion. That is what I am looking for again.
More generally, how could I have found...double clicking and draging a column in a chart to chg data

That feature has been removed in 2007, there is no way to do it.
If this helps, click the Yes button.

This may have been answered many times.
In MS EXCEL is there a way that it calculates all numbers to 2 decimal

Thanks in advance for the answer.
You can set your decimal places in your cells as 2 and then check Precision

it means what it says!!

Here is the macro below.. The only problem is that the columns change every
month. so range (columns)keeps widening.... I have sorted it by selecting
range upto column N. so it is provided for all 12 months.
But now the "Grand total" column which is always the last column also gets
included..(.which shouldnt be included in the range for the chart)
Is there a way to modify this macro ?

How do you create transparent areas in imbedded charts? (for Excel 2003).
When I click on "Format Chart area", then "Fill effects", there is a place
where you can change the transparency settings, but it is faded out and will
not work. Any Ideas?
You can make most elements totally transparent. Ignore the transparency
button, which is only for decoration. Instead, if you set an element's area
to none, the element will be transparent.

How would I update a column with numeric values so that there are 3 leading
zeros for each row?
it is not possible to add leading zeros to a numeric value. Mathematically,
this is redundent and unnecessary.

A client of mine has Office X for Mac. I am wondering if this edition

these statements is accurate?
Thanks in advance,
I believe that both statements are wrong.

I have a user that claims that he had a shortcut to a spreadsheet "in
his public folders" at his old job. Obviously, he's an end user that
may or may not know what he's talking about.... I'm trying to figure
out the best way to accomodate him.
He basically wants an Excel file stored on a shared folder to be
available to all user as either a shortcut, or a link in the public
folders (can't post to a folder as he will be updating the sheet
regularly). When a user clicks on the shortcut/link, it would just
launch Excel and display the file.

I am using Filters in Excel 2003.
Every cell in sheet B is linked to every cell in sheet A. That way I
can alter data in B without corrupting the original data in A. I then

Advanced Filter. I have no criteria so I do not set that. I click OK.
I then select Filter again and this time select Auto Filter. Drop
down arrows appear at the top of my columns. Great, no problems so
far, I then select from the drop down list the criteria that I want to
filter. Again no problems, my list filters correctly.

I am working on a spreadsheet for work where it will calculate commissions to

cell# whatever and then have a sum in there. The table is on another sheet in

What query would I use to update Supplier cost from Item Cost in the Item
Thanks for any help!
Be careful before you do this. The system is set so you can have multiple
suppliers for each item. Supplier A Cost might be 10.99 but Supplier B
charges 14.00. You normally buy from Supplier A, but they sometimes run out,
so you need to order from Supplier B.
If you update Supplier Cost from Item Cost, both suppliers would display the
same cost. Your scenario is only safe if you are sure you only have 1
supplier per item.
