How can i accomplish to plot and update the chart continously from the values of just these two cells.

Its easy if i have a range of cells and its straightforward.

Do i have to create a new row for every time the value in these cells updated and these set of rows act as a Data Table.

Hey everyone,

I'm really hoping someone can help me with this...

I need to plot percentages over time in a line graph in excel. I don't want to have to do a percentage equation in the spreadsheet, I just want excel to take two sets of values and display the percentage in the chart. For example, I need B1 as a percentage of B2 for week 1, C1 as a percentage of C2 for week 2, etc....
Can someone please offer a suggestion for how to do this? I would really appreciate it.
Also, would it be possible to link data from other sheets in the workbook into one single chart?

Seemingly super simple, but I can't figure it out.

When I create a bar chart, the bars are horizontal. I want the chart bars to be vertical. It tried to rotate the chart so that it is vertical, but the "rotate" options are greyed out.

How do I get those bars vertical?

I have a pivot chart with a bunch of data series, and every time we
include/exclude one of the series to see how the chart changes, all the
colors change and we have to spend time re-identifying which series is
which, using the legend to check the colors.

Is there a way to "lock" the colors, so that the bars stay the same colors
regardless of whether other bars are included/excluded?


Entering time values in custom format [h]:mm:ss
Cells accept hours over 23,
Adding cells in column returns correct total time.
Have not found a way to multiply these cells by a $ hourly rate.
So use HOUR(cell ref) and MINUTE(cell ref) to capture values in referenced
cell - then use these values to calculate total payment for $rate per hour.
However, the HOUR(cell ref) formula returns the hours in excess of 24 when
the cell contains an hour value in excess of 23 (ie 27 hours returns 3).


I have the following code to put data from a VBA userform into Excel

Dim Sh As Worksheet
Dim Rng As Range
Set Sh = ActiveSheet
Set Rng = Sh.Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)
With Rng
.Cells(1, 1) = Surname.Text
.Cells(1, 2) = forename.Text
.Cells(1, 3) = datein.Text
.Cells(1, 4) = origin.Text
.Cells(1, 5) = Addressee.Value
.Cells(1, 6) = usual.Value
.Cells(1, 7) = dateto.Text
.Cells(1, 8) = permission.Value
.Cells(1, 9) = dateseen.Text
.Cells(1, 10) = requestview.Value
.Cells(1, 11) = Invoice.Value
.Cells(1, 12) = notes.Text
.Cells(1, 13) = datecompleted.Text
.Cells(1, 14) = holdsend.Value
.Cells(1, 15) = fee.Text
.Cells(1, 16) = notes2.Text
.Cells(1, 17) = dateseen.Text
.Cells(1, 18) = invoicesent.Text
.Cells(1, 19) = Paid.Text
.Cells(1, 20) = Complete.Value

End With

What I want to do next is click on the surname on the speadsheet and call up the userform with the fields complete for that person. I would also like to be able to edit/update the form and update the information on the speadsheet accordingly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks!

How would I create a system where an excel file is updated in real time with new values? I have a program which logs data, and I want to have excel open, plotting the data in real time. Is this possible?


Try this...

There are some valid datas in the cells A2 (Eg. 100), B2(Eg. 200), C2 and D2.
Data validation is used in cell K2 to limit it to a set of values.

Can we implement this formula?

A2=A3; B2=B3; C2=C3; D2=D3; K2=K3;
no change to any values.

Thanks in advance...

Regarding Charts in Excel:

Is there a way to have the Min and Max values adjusted dynamically for the Scale of the values being displayed ??

I know that I can use named ranges to display various sections of data -- month by month, or quarter by quarter, for example.

But when the value of these ranges vary greatly from section to section I end of having to manually go and adjust the Min and Max values of the chart scale.

For example, if I was looking at a graph of the S&P 500's prices last November, a Min and Max range of 750 to 1200 would be fine. But if I had a dynamic range established and scrolled over to view the S&P 500's prices for this past February, I would need a Min and Max range of around 650 to 850.

Is there a way to have these Min & Max values adjust automatically depending on the values being displayed ??



I need to create a bar chart for the year. I've already have 3 bars for each of the months, a plan, an actual, and a last year. I need to be able to split out just the actual bar, so that it is a stacked bar. The other two bars need to stay and remain unstacked. Is this possible?

Hi there,

I'm very new to Excel, and I'm having trouble figuring a few things out. Hopefully this will be very easy for you guys!

In Sheet 1, I have a column of cells that I would like to also appear in Sheet 2. If I add a new row to the column in Sheet 1, I would also like it to be updated automatically in Sheet 2. Currently, I can get it to show the contents of individual cells from Sheet 1 in Sheet 2 by using this formula in the formula bar for each cell in Sheet 2:

=Sheet1!A3 (or whichever cell it is)

That's fine, but I'd like to just have a formula that will reproduce the entire column (ie. without a fixed range, as new rows are going to be added to the column).

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be very very grateful. Thanks.


I am brand new to Mr. Excel and would love some advice.

I searched the boards pretty extensively but could not find what I am looking for...I apologize if this is a duplicate.

I am using Excel 2007

How do you automatically add rows and update values for cells to a linked worksheet in which rows have been added? For example: Sheet 1, columns A & B are linked to Sheet 2, columns A & B. Sheet 2 has values in A1:A5 & B1:B5 and Sheet 1, since it is linked, has the same info. I want to add a row in between 3 & 4 on Sheet 2 and want Sheet 1 to automatically add the same row and update the value of the cell in column A & B.

Any help is greatly appreciated!


I'm trying to separate bars inside a bar chart into separate groups. Adjust the gap applies to all bars. How will I be able to achieve what I need? Please help and thanks

Corporate edict.

I have a worksheet that is locked and protected now, except for cells in a certain collumn. I have named the cells in that column "MS96A".

If a user enters a date in a cell or range of cells anywhere in the column, the changed cells also need to be locked and protected (Once they enter a date, it is not allowed EVER to be changed again. Corporate requirement! *Shrug*).

What I am looking for is this. If the user selects that cell again, they will get the usual pop-up message, "The cell or chart that you are trying to change is protected..."

I think I am close, but I am getting an "End If without block If" error on the If Clause.

Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
Dim MRange As Range
Set MRange = Range("MS96A")
' If Not Intersect(Target, MRange) Is Nothing Then For Each cell In MRange Sheets("Sheet1").Unprotect Password:="temp"
cell.Interior.ColorIndex = 3
cell.Font.Color = vbBlack
Selection.Locked = True
Selection.FormulaHidden = False
Next cell
ActiveSheet.Protect Password:="temp", _
DrawingObjects:=False, _
Contents:=True, _
ActiveSheet.EnableSelection = xlUnlockedCells
End Sub

Hi there. I'm using Excel 2007 and often use filters to find inconsistent data (mis-spellings, etc.) and then clean up the data using the fill handle to fill in correctly formatted values. I'm finding that, with a simple filter on, dragging over cells hidden by the filter changes the values in the hidden cells too. This is something I don't remember from my last version of Excel. I'm wondering if I've mis-remembered how this control works, or if there is a setting I can't find.

My goal is to drag and fill (or paste) in a colum with a range of rows wiht some hidden (filtered out) rows, and have the filtered out data be unaffected, if that makes sense.




I have three columns containing last name values from 3 different sources that I've brought into one sheet. I am trying to find a way to compare all three values to establish if they are the same.

Of the three values there is no master, Each value may be different. So essentially it would be like doing =IF(a1=a2=a3,"match", "nomatch")
But of course this isn't possible.

I don't care about obtaining detail about which value matches which. I just need true or false response as to whether all three values are the same or not.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.



Is there a way to create a second worksheet that is based on data from an original sheet that will automatically update when you ADD ROWS to the original sheet?

Linking values between sheets is easy... but I need to be able to set a designated area on my A sheet that I can add rows into which will automatically be added to my B sheet.

Does anyone know of a function that I can apply for this?

Column 1 has roughly 20 rows of information. Cell C1 has the formula =A1.

Is there a formula so that when I drag C1 horizontally into D1, E1, F1, ..., the values placed in each cell will be =A2, =A3, =A4, ...

I do not want to transpose the values from column 1 into C1, D1,.... I want these cells to have a formula that links them up to column 1's values



I am new to using Excel and I am not very computer literate. I am looking for some help with a spreadsheet I am making. Here is the problem:

I have a column of 14 numbers in cells A1 to A14. If all of these values are less than 2%, I would like a "Pass" to display in cell B1. If any of these values are greater than 2% I would like a "Fail" to display in cell B1.

I have got a formula that works for a single cell but I can't figure out how to get it to apply to more than one cell. For example, I have entered =IF(A1<2,"Pass","Fail") in cell B1. Now if the value I enter in A1 is less than 2, it shows a "Pass", and if the value in A1 is greater than 2 it shows a "Fail" in cell B1. How can I get this to apply to all of the cells from A1 to A14?

If somebody could help me out that would be great.


Right now I have a sports league with 8 teams, I'd like to create a random 7-game schedule where each team plays the other team only once. Essentially this will be a 7-game round robin. However, I'd like to be able to use this for any number of teams and games.

I'd like to do this in Excel, but I can't figure out how to have a randomly generating non-repeating macro with text values in cells.

So right now I have a column of 8 values and need matrix of 7 columns by 8 rows next to it.

I've found this thread that has one for numbers, but I can't figure out how to do it for text values...

Thanks all!

I am looking for assistance in having one cell in a text format equals another cell that contains a time value in hh:mm format.

For example: Cell A1 has a time format (hh:mm) value of 04:00; which is the Start Time. I would like cell D1 to have a text format value of "04:00" (result is dependant upon what is entered in A1). I would duplicate the same formulas to reflect Stop Times in other cells.

My final result is to have another cell (F1) use the Concatenate formula to have the Start and Stop time shown in one cell as "04:00 - 12:30". The times would change based on the Time formated values entered into the Start and Stop time cells.

I have researched this in the board and found many excellent ways to do the opposite, but not convert Time format to Text format. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.


Hello -

I am using Excel 2007. In prior versions of excel, when copying data, if I wanted to copy visible cells only, I would select "Go To, Special, Visible Cells Only" and then copy a range a cells. The default was always set to copy everything (including hidden cells), unless I specifically selected copy visible cells only.

In 2007, the default is somehow set to always copy only visible cells. Sometimes, I want to be able to copy all cells including those hidden but cannot seem to figure out how to swith this default option. I looked under Excel Options and did not see an option there.

I don't want to have to unhide and rehide everything each time i copy. I know i could do the hiding and unhiding via VBA but would prefer not to have to.

Thanks for your suggestions.

So I've got some data, which has the approximate form of a sine function. I want to find all the x-axis intercepts. I tried using the intercept function and swapping around the y values for the x values, but it only returns 1 value (so I'd guess it uses a linear regression to estimate a single line through the axis).

I was thinking of trying a nested if/and statement but I haven't quite figured out how to do it. Basically I want to identify the two values where it switches from positive to negative and also indentify the values where it goes negative to positive, I can then fit a straight line between them to find a better approximation of the intercept (though it might not be necessary). Preferably I'd like it all one function as I'm not doing it in VBA (I might do later though, we'll see).

Can anyone suggest how I'd find these value or the x-intercept. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I'm a bit of a newbie with Excel, but...

I have several cells with data that contain both letters and numbers (4H, 8V, 4FH, etc.) What I want to do is remove only the text characters from these cells, and add the remaining number values together among a series of cells with this data type.

If your answer involves using a macro or VB, please provide a link on how to use the formula. I've never used a macro or VB.
