I use Excel 2000 / 97 and am having a problem with a graph.

I want to track my weight by date (same date each week), so have the following info in excel columns(for example):

'Date' 'St' 'lbs' 'Total lbs'
01/04/03 14 6 202
08/04/03 14 4 200
15/04/03 14 1 197
22/04/03 13 12 194


I can create a graph from this with Date on x-axis, and Total lbs on Y axis.

However, what I would like to do is have St and Lbs (1 stone = 14 lbs) on the Y axis, in steps of 2lbs if possible.

Can this be done?

NB: the closest way to doing this so far that i have found is to use minor gridlines of 1/14 but there must be an easier way surely!!!!

Any help would be appreciated!

You can't graph functions directly with Excel. You'll need something like Maple or Matlab to do that. You can find trendlines (aka best-fit lines) of data; exactly how you do this depends on which version of Excel you have, which you should specify in your reply.

A:Graphs in Excel 2007

Welcome to the forum.

Excel has a habit of treating Numerical values at face value so has taken your years as data rather than labels. I'd suggest you change your labels to say xx2006, xx2007, xx2008 etc. then do the chart.

Once the labels have been picked up, you can change back to how you want the labels in the first place.

I am working on a spreadsheet that pulls information using a Crystal Reports macro. The formula needed is an if statement. I want it to reference the spreadsheet so that it will work for all of the accounts. Basically, if it is a certain date, I want it to display a field on the spreadsheet for the history. If it is past that date, I need it to keep the # for the history and graph. Finally, if it is before the date, I want it to show nothing. I have gotten the field to show nothing, but it gives it the value 0 on the graph. I need to get rid of this somehow and possibly revamp the formula. Any help or comments are greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hey all. I am using FP 2002 (please dont suggest not to use it because I have to use it. I work for someone & this is what they want.) to build a website. The problem I am encountering is that the font (Arial) is appearing differently from the design mode (which is how I want it to look) than in the preview mode. The font in the preview mode looks smaller & less spaced - which throws all the text off. The whole thing appears just fine in Netscape - but then again it looks small & off (as it does in preview) in IE 6.0. I have it set to be complient for both browsers & for all browsers 4.0 & later.
Any suggestions? Please?

A:FP 2002 - Font sizes differ in IE & Netscape?

can you provide the link to the page in question so we can analyze it?

If it is not online, can you upload it somewhere?

Then we'll have a look.

Font Sizes can be defined in points-pt, pixels-px or percent %

Most of the time I use points.

If FP is anything like MS word in regards of font size definition, it should use points.

All browers will display the same text size slightly different.

All browsers display Bold text different also. Opera displays bold text really fat.

In EXCEL when you specify a data range EXCEL assumes the first column is the independent variable (x-axis) and all subsequent columns are the dependent variable (y-axis). This makes setting up plots with multiple series easy.

However, if you want the independent variable to be plotted on the y axis, one must set up each series separately, showing what is on the x-axis and what is the y-axis. This takes a lot of time if you have many series on a single chart.

Is there a way to do this easily. One way would seem to set up the independent variable as the x- axis and then just rotate the plot 90 degrees, but I can't figure out how to do this.

I have attached a sample creating a plot both ways: independent variable on x axis
and independent variable on y axis

Thanks for any ideas.

In Excel, when one has a scatter diagram, and values such as 9.81, 19.62 and 29.43 on the x-axis, how can one get Excel to display the decimal numbers on the x-axis, rather than have 9.81 be set a little before 10, 19.62 be set a little before 20 etc. ? thanks,

This exercise has driven me crazy!

All I'm trying to do is draw a bar graph, and have a red line across it showing targeted sales. I'm sure I must be missing something. Some of the explanations I've come across online are fiendishly complex, and I can't get them to work anyway. The obvious one (to me), is to add the target data to the end of the normal data, and change that info into a line graph. However, when I do this, the entire graph changes to a line graph.

Is there a simple way that I am unaware of? The explanations I've come across are going to result in me printing the graph and drawing the line in with a pen at this rate!

It's probably really simple, but I am lost! How do I remove the zero from the x-axis of a scatter-plot? The y-axis runs into the -ve so the zero for the x axis runs straight through the y-axis and looks scrappy. I only want to remove the zero from the x-axis, none of the other numbers.
I know one method would be to remove all the axis labels and insert text-boxes for each tick, but that is a pain when handling the chart.

Well I am doing my GCSE Chemistry coursework and I need to include graphs with lines of best fit through the points, but the graph needs to curve through the points, missing anomalous points, and basically showing the trend of the points, but not necessarily going thorough every point (as the results wont be perfect), so a line of best fit. I know I can do this on paper but it looks messy and I would much rather print them out as the rest of the write up is being printed out.

I have been using OpenOffice so I would rather use the spreadsheet in that but am able to use Excel if need be, or I would get new software if anyone knows of software that can do this?

So, does anyone know if its possible?

I don't know about OpenOffice, but you can add trend lines easily enough to a chart in Excel. Just right-click the appropriate line (or dataset) in your chart and select Add Trendline... from the context menu. There are a variety of different functions by which to derive the trend.

Is this what you mean?

Afternoon everyone!

As the title suggests, I have some issues with formatting the x-axis of a column graph (the graph is to show air consumption rate over a period of 30 minutes) in Excel 2010 (the file in question is attached). As you can see in the attached picture, the graph currently has the x-axis formatted such that it starts in the middle of the ticks. Ideally, I am looking for a way to start "0" from the y-axis intercept without shifting the graph as is currently the case when changing the horizontal axis options.

Does anyone know how, or if you can, change the font size of your items to choose from in a dropdown box you create? I am only able to change it if I change the % of the total page size and then everything else is way too big.



A:Font Sizes In Excel

As I recall, when you click on the dropdown for the font size, the current box will be highlighted - if so, just type in the new number.

I've even used it with 1 decimal place (for example 11.5) in Excel 2000 and might have done it in Excel 2002.

I am running Excel97 (SR-1) on a Windows95 PC over a Netware5 network. When some spreadsheets are opened, the font display size is unreadably large (about 72 point) although it is still described as being the default 10 point. This applies to both the data in cells and the row and column headings.

If affected cells are selected and the font size changed slightly (eg from 10 point to 11 point) everything goes back to normal. However, the problem returns when the file is re-opened. This is happening on a number of PCs and none appear to have a virus (checked with latest version of Sophos).

I would be very grateful for any ideas!

Thats the normal default behaviour since you have both positive and negative values on the X-axis - the chart assumes you want to see the value extremes so it places the y-axis at the zero position of the x-axis.

You can shift the Y-axis to the far left by using the format x-axis option, like this:

No guarantees these suggestions will work but you could give it a try. See if rebuilding the icon cache helps.

You could also try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two) just in case your system fils got damaged or corrupted somehow. If problems are found, run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

out. Can anyone help me accomplish this?

Thanks in advance.

A:Excel 2002-03

Sorry, RandomUser, this is not what you WANT, but it may provide what you NEED. When I want a set of user directions or a framework on all sheets in a Workbook, I set up a template like this:

Open a new workbook.
On Sheet 1, type the common information you want into cells A2 to, let's say, B5.
Go to Sheet 2.
In cell A2, type "=", click cell A2 back on Sheet 1, then hit ENTER.
Drag that cell formula (on Sheet 2) down to A5, then across to B5 (two actions, I'm afraid).
For safety's sake, I always protect that construction, like this:
Select your whole expected work area on Sheet 2, and choose Format-Cells-Protection
Clear the "Protected" tick from the check box.
Then select the template area you want to share, and choose Format-Cells-Protection again
This time check the "protected" box.
Now choose Tools-Protection-Protect Sheet. What do you want to protect? Do you need a password?
Sheet 2 is now a template that you can copy and re-use in that (or any other) workbook, as often as you want.

That's not sophisticated, but it's functional.

When more than one spreadsheet is open, and you go to close it, Excel will sometimes close all spreadsheets but only asks you to save the top spreadsheet.

Hello kkent,

It depends which 'Close' button you are pressing. I will attempt an explanation in association with the below picture.

Number 1:
This is the APPLICATION close button.
This will close all Workbooks in the current Application Instance of Excel.

Number 2:
This is the WORKBOOK close button
This will close only the currently Active Workbook that is associated with it.

Applying to both:
You will only be asked to save a workbook if you have made any changes to it.

If you hit the Application close button, you will have a fourth option to say "Yes to All". This allows you to say yes, you want to save each and every workbook that is open and close them all. You do not have this option when using the Workbook close button.
This is (mostly) assuming that you are not being acted upon by a third party program/add-in. Results may be skewed if you are using an AutoSave add-in; you can find a list of the installed add-ins by going to Tools --> Add-ins.., where those installed have their box checked.

My excel was working fine and then one day these items changed and I cannot figure out how to get them back to what they were.

First, when I place an email address or hyperlink in a cell it underlines it like a hyperlink on a web page and then when I click on it the web page or email that is listed in that cell is loaded. How do I change it so these links are not active when I select that cell.

Second I seem to have personalized menus now in the file/Edit/View...... menu. How do I get rid of those. I dislike them in windows and do not want them in excel.


A:Excel 2002

How are you placing the email address/hyperlink in the cell? If you're typing it in, you could prefix it with an apostrophe. Or after you press Enter, pressing CTRL+Z (undo) will kill the link.

I don't follow "personalized menus now in the file/Edit/View...... menu" -- can you post a screenshot?

EDIT: for Excel 2002, I read you can "suppress hyperlink generation under Auto Correct from the Tools menu -- Tools (menu), Autocorrect Options, Autoformat as you type (Tab)".

Under Tools, you have three listings you might be able to set it so you can share and track changes.

The First was Share workbook,
The Second was track changes.
The Third was Protection and that has several different settings.

This might not work but have you tried the detect and repair under Help. I have not had any problem opening 2000 Excel with XP Excel. My comments came out right but then a lot has to do with the way the machines are set up also and the security on each.

A:Excel 2002 VB Code Help

I don't do that much programming in Excel, but I'm really familiar with VBA, so I'll take a shot. Seems like you have two possibilities:

1. turn off Echo (the screen updater, check out Excel help if you don't know it), and make Sheet2 the active sheet, carry out the stuff, and make Sheet1 the active sheet, and turn Echo back on. The user will see nothing. I'm not sure if your problem is caused by the fact that the sheet is inactive.

2. name the range you're trying to activate, in your second code example. Then you should be able to set your variable to Worksheets("Sheet2").Ranges("NameOfYourRangeHere"), without too much trouble.

If none of this works, and no one else has a better idea, I can dig into my Excel code archives and see what I can come up with.

I would like to get the letter column headings back as the program was originally designed but I cannot figure out how to do this. I have no idea why the set column headings changed to numbers. Does anyone know how to get back the letter designations for the column headings and know why it changed to begin with? Could it have changed because of a virus or because I downloaded the patch to be able to read MS Excel 2007 files?


A:Help with Excel XP 2002 column headings

Hi, welcome to TSG. I don't know what caused it, but to change it back you can go to Tools/Options and select the General tab. The first checkbox should say "R1C1 reference style". Uncheck the box and select OK, and it should return to normal. Hope that helps.

I have a terrible report that i cannot modify. It can be any where from 8-20 pages long, but i only want the first page of information

I have built a macro to import the report into excel. After my macro is done its thing it finds the first line of data that i would not need selects the cell.

Now what i am looking for is a macro to either just select the information from A1 to that active cell and copy it into a new worksheet (remember the range of data could be anywhere from 20 to 40 lines or even more, so i cannot have a cell reference to the cell that was found).
Or a macro to select everything from that selected cell to the lst line and deleting everything just leaving me the top lines that i would need)

Is this clear?
Is this possible?

I have Office XP Pro on a 2.4Ghz pentium machine, 512 Mb. Occasionally the following error occurs in Excel, even with just one spreadsheet open, or sometimes lots open, " Microsoft Exel cannot open or save any more documents because there is not enough available memory or disk space" I checked Technet and it said it is a known problem but gives no fix. Anybody any ideas?;en-us;176826

if M5 = more then 1000.00, subtract 1000.00.

The below is not working properly.

It works if the number is greater then 1000, however,
if the number is less then 1000, it computes negative number.

I desire no computation if number is less then 1000.

All suggestions welcomed.

Thanks, nt

Is there a way to print a list all of the named ranges (and their respective cell references) in a workbook? I seem to recall that there was a hidden Info worksheet in previous versions of Excel, but I can't find anything like that in XP...

For some strange reason excel is not working properly for me anymore. Right now when I call up a file there is a box highlighted. This doesn't matter what file I call up. If I click anywhere on the page I then get highlighting that never ends. I can not control end or anything else for that matter. In order to do anything on the computer I have to ctrl-alt-del and get rid of excel. Sorry if I am not making myself too clear here. I never did use excel very often and am unfamiliar with most of what it can do. Now I am trying to learn it and it's not working correctly. Can anyone help? Thanks much in advance!

I have an Excel 2002 issue. I am trying to put arrows at the end of certain selected formatted lines in cells of an Excel form. (This form has many places where I need to allow for dimensions to be inserted in it.....sort of like a blueprint would be.) I found the toolbar for drawings and the applicable "arrow" icon. The problem is that I can't get the icon to activate. It stays shaded so that when I click on it it won't light up. It doesn't matter if I click on the cell line first or not. Do you have any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thanks for your help.

A:Excel 2002 format issue

Try this, not sure, since I have 2003 but the steps should be close.

In the drawing toolbar, click on the little black drop down arrow next to auto shapes. Choose lines, then the arrow. Then you can just drag the mouse where you would like the arrow to go.
Once you have the arrow, you can click it, to select it, and then the options for different arrow types will light up for you and allow you to change it.

I have created a worksheet, which I protect and shared among three departments. Can someone tell me while trying to save their work few users get the attached error message?

Thank you in advance!


A:Saving problem (Excel 2002)

Initial guess is that they are all linking to the same copy of the spreadsheet perhaps. Only one user can have it open at one time, you cannot "share" the access to it.

Having said that I would have expected a different message, such as being locked for editing.
