Morning all,
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 graph with various information in it. One is a line graph that tracks hours used in that department per month. The problem is that when it gets to the last month, and there is not yet data for future months, the line goes down to Zero (leavin this big diagonal line that makes the data look funny). I need this line to stop on the last month there is data for. (I do not manually enter the data, it is a formula that I do not wish to delete.) I know I can manually move the data that the line is pulling to make it stop on the last month, but I have a graph for 36 different departments and that's a pain to have to manually adjust 36 graphs each month. Is there a way to tell the line to stop if there is no data? Thanks!!
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?

I am puzzled by a thin black line (that looks like a border line) on a spreadsheet that I am unable to remove, whatever I do. It starts halfway across column B and stops just at the end of column Z.
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.

I have a userform containing a multicolumn listbox (ListBox1) and textbox (txtSelectedJobNumber).
When a user clicks on a line in the listbox I want to automatically copy the text in the 3rd column of the selected line to the textbox.
If anyone could provide code which would allow me to do this I would be grateful
Thanks

I am using the code below to disable the save function very successafully. However, is there a work around to allow a macro to save?

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
'this disables the save function on the XLS
MsgBox "****Save is Disabled****"
' Following line will prevent all saving
Cancel = True
' Following line will prevent the Save As Dialog box from showing
If SaveAsUI Then SaveAsUI = False
End Sub

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
'this disables the save function on the XLS
MsgBox "****Save is Disabled****"
' Following line will prevent all saving
Cancel = True
' Following line will prevent the Save As Dialog box from showing
If SaveAsUI Then SaveAsUI = False
End Sub
So I've got some data, which has the approximate form of a sine function. I want to find all the xaxis 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 xintercept. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This may be less of an Excel question than a general data display question, but I'll try here.
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,
Dave

I have the code which filters my spreadsheet and copies that dataset but I think I need to add an IF that skips the copy line when the criteria is not met. Any ideas?

Hi. I have a row in a spreadsheet in Excel that is hidden but i am unable to unhide it. I have tried the usual way by hovering between the rows above and below until i get the double line but this does not happen. I have also tried going through the Format  Row  Unhide option but this also doesn't work. Any suggestions?
Can you put a diagonal line in a cell and then color one part of it one color and the ther part of it another color?
I'm working on a speadsheet that has thousands of line items with lots of great information, but not in the fields I need them to be in. Is there a formula to move for example cell contents A26 to B25 and D26 to F27? Also I have contents in one cell that I need to break apart is there a formula for that too? I searced the help and the net an came up with nothing. Maybe I'm not wording it correctly, but I'd appreciate the help.
Hi everyone,
I'm going nuts trying to figure out how to autofill text from one cell
to another. For example, everytime I type text into cell A20, I want
the exact same thing to cell BL20. The same for B20, BL20, etc.
How do I go about that? I already know how to copy formulas from one
cell to another by dragging the skinny black line of the cell. I guess
I just need the formula for a simple IDENTICAL copying of text.
Thanks in advance,
Mike

Below is the code I am using. I am trying to change the subject to show the value of a cell.
Code:
When it sends it does not show the name in c5.
It just reads "Attrition for"
Should there be a different code?

With OutMail .To = "name@name.com" .CC = "" .BCC = "" .Subject = "Attrition for" & Range("c5") .Body = "" .Attachments.Add wb2.FullName

I have an extensive spreadsheet with several columns and all showing borders
where each cell/column begins and ends. However there are a few cells where
the break with the next cell does not show the line.
I have highlighed the cell in question, gone to format/cell/borders and
everything looks fine. Black color + format border shows square with all
sides of square showing.
Any thoughts on how to fix these few random cells.

I have a merged cell which contains a text with multiple lines.
I want to split the lines into multiple rows.Each line should come in a different row.
I want to do this using macro.Is there is anyway to do this?
There is an option to split the cell into multiple cells on the basis of the delimiter, but there is no option to split them into rows.

I have a spreadsheet set up with an employees information, including the start date. After each year that the employee is working, he gets bumped up on the pay scale. For this reason, I only need to know how many years the employee has been working, rounded down to the nearest year.
This is what I have so far (hire date is in column B):
=((TODAY()B4)/365)&" YEARS"
This function gives me a number with many decimal places.
I tried:
=ROUNDDOWN((TODAY()B4)/365),0)&" YEARS"
It tells me I have too few arguments. Please help!

I would like to copy a small table from Word into one cell in an Excel
worksheet. The first column of the table is a list of numbers. I tried
converting the table into text with manual line breaks and tab stops to
divide columns and rows, but that didn't solve my problem.
Excel pastes the data into several rows. When I try to merge them, I
get a warning that the selection contains multiple data values, and
merging into one cell keeps the upperleft most data only.
What I tried that didn't work:
* Formatting the Excel cells as text before pasting the data.
* The various options for "Paste Special." The closest I got was
inserting the table as a Document Object, which could be a workaround,
I guess.
What I am saving for when all else fails:
* The obvious solution of copying row by row into one Excel cell.
The data in the table is information about my dad's medications. I
would like to have reference charts of how to identify the strength of
each tablet by its color and markings. I got the info from the
manufacturers' websites and entered it into tables in Word, which I
would like to copy into a more comprehensive file I am creating in
Excel. The first column of each table is the strength of the tablet,
entered as 1 mg., 2 mg., etc. The subsequent columns describe the
shape, color, and markings. There are 3 tables, each with about 45
rows.
Is there a way to copy each one  whether as a table or as text  into
a single Excel cell without losing data?
Many thanks.

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 ??
Thanks
