Line Graphs And Percentages 
Line Graphs And Percentages  Excel 

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?

I have 3 variables that I'm charting. I have one on the primary axis and it's values are in the billions. I have one on the secondary axis and it's a percentage. I need to display a 3rd who's value is in the millions. If I put it on the primary axis, you cannot see modest changes.
Is there a tricky way to get all three on one graph? I know I could split on two graphs, so that's my backup plan.
Thanks,

New to the forums.
I'm in the process of creating a new report and I'm stuck.
My report consists of a set target in a field, a score and percentage of target.
e.g Target is 400
score is 450.
Percentage is 1.125 of target. (=score/target)
Now what I would like to do is create a formula that does not go above 100% , but instead work in reverse if you go over the target.
E.g. Target 400 .. Score was 450 ... percentage of target is 87.5%
Thanks in advanced.
I have a table with various percentages, and I would like a formula to have an average of these. Please see attached file to get more of an idea.
Thanks

I am trying to calculate our On Time Delivery. I want this as a simple percentage of jobs. I have got this running in the following way:
Column M  Estimated Delivery dates
Column N  Actual Delivery dates
Column O  =IF(SUM(M2N2)>0,1,0)
Then I have calculated On Time Delivery as: =SUM((SUM(O2:O252))/(COUNTA(N2:N252)))
This seems to work fine. My problem is, if we enter a date in Estimated without a corresponding Actual date, the formula for Column O fills out anyway and improves our On Time Delivery Percentage. How can I set this up so that the formula doesn't calculate if there is no data in Column N?
Any help much appreciated

Say I had a line graph for 4 years and I wanted it to be a solid line for the first three and a dashed line for the last one, is that possible?
Many thanks for your help
I have a file that has 8 sheets. the first seven sheets are the days of the week and the 8th sheet is where I want to calculate the hours.
The days of the week consists of "Name" "Date" Hours"
The 8th sheet consists of "Name", "Days of the week in their own column (7 columns in total)", "Total Hours" and "Total Days Worked"
Now... each day is always a different group and what I'm hoping for is to create a formula that can grab each name with their hours and throw them into the 8th sheet. So when the end of the week is done I have all the Employees weekly hours and days worked all finished.
I hope this makes sense. This file is to track about 100 employees that are on a rotational work schedule.
I have attached a sample file.
Thanks in advance for your help.
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 ??
Thanks

It is not a border line.
It is not a page break.
If I delete the rows it appears on it remains visible.
It is not an object floating on top of the spreadsheet.
Any ideas?
Thanks.
How do i do this??
Thanks
include/exclude one of the series to see how the chart changes, all the
colors change and we have to spend time reidentifying 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?
Thanks!

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 xintercept. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
ie. add points to find their concentration on a standard curve.
Please help!!!
We have a client who will pay using the 1/4, 1/2/ and 3/4 of an hour increments as follows:
From the hour mark to 6 minutes = 0 time paid
Over 7 minutes to 15 minutes = 1/4 hour 15
16 minutes to 30 minutes = 1/2 hour 30
30 minutes to 45 minutes = 3/4 hour 45
46 minutes to 60 minutes = one hour.
They work on shifts and the operation is 24 hours. Each gets 30 minutes for breaks which is not paid. Pay is biweekly and overtime is anything over 40 hours. Currently, the template we are using looks like this (sorry, I could not figure out how to paste it so you can see it in Excel layout):
WEEK 1 Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday
5/16 5/17 5/18 5/19 5/20 5/21 5/22

I am very new to Excel and need help creating a formula that will allow us to calculate this timesheet? I am in desperate need for help.
Thanks..
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.
Thanks,
Randy
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?
