I know how to do a scatter plot and create a trend line for it.

Straightforward graphing function.

However, I have *two* data sets (with different number of data points)

that I would like to compare. Obviously, I can do a chart for each

and put them side by side.

Problem: I would like to display a scatter plot for each set with a

trend line for each on the *same* chart using Excel 2000.

Thanks.

I have a list of 50 names or so, and two variables attached to each name. I need to see, on ONE chart, a scatter plot to show the direct relationship between these two variables. However, I need to see the names attached to each data point, or else the legend which is 50 names long gets confusing. Furthermore, many of these names share one or both of the same variables! I still need to see a plot for each individual name on the graph though.

Any ideas? I was thinking about trying to create some sort of matrix, but I don't know how to do that either.

Your help is MUCH appreciated!

Additionally, the values for the x-axis are in years, but they are not in regular intervals (the further back in time, the more widely they are spaced). And the year values are not the same for both (e.g. Temp may have data at years 102 and 109, but CO2 have data at years 98 and 113). How can I plot the two data sets on one chart so that the values for years are linear along the x axis?

It seems like it should be easy, but I can't seem to wrangle Excel into doing what I want. Any help much appreciated.

I currently have Excel from 2002 installed, but I think I can get work to upgrade it to a newer version if that helps.

Ignore the fact that in this graph there are two separate tables for there and back again. I would like to do this without repeating the distance data over and over again, but wouldn't know how to do it even with that compromise.

I've set this case statement up to change the trendlines, but now that I've added more, how can I change them all without repeating the seriescollection over and over six times?

Also, for the Parabola chart, changing the trendline doesn't seem to be as straightforward. What I have it the code below doesn't work? Any suggestions?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range) Dim rng As Range Set rng = Target.Parent.Range("B4") If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub If Intersect(Target, rng) Is Nothing Then Exit Sub ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 1").Activate With ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(2).Trendlines(1) With ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(3).Trendlines(1) Select Case Target.Value Case "Linear" .Type = xlLinear .Type = xlLinear Case "Power" .Type = xlPower .Type = xlPower Case "Parabola" .Type = xlPolynomial With Selection .Type = xlPolynomial .Order = 2 End With Case "Ratio" .Type = xlLogarithmic .Type = xlLogarithmic End Select End With End With Application.Goto reference:=Range("A1") End Sub

x-values? When I go to Select Data Source and Add a series, I have to

specify both x-values and y-values. If I add a second data series with the

same x-values as the first, then the x-axis labels are just 0,1,2,..., not

the x-values I specified. I do get a scatter plot with two data series, but

the x-axis is not correctly labelled.

This was no problem in prior versions of Excel, but like everything else in

the "easier to use" Office 2007, it is much harder to figure out.

I'm new to this board as well as excel so I'm hoping someone has some suggestions!

I've created a scatter plot with absorbance on the y-axis and concentration on the x-axis with a trendline from an experiment I did. From a separate experiment I have 3 absorbance values. My goal is to calculate the x-axis values by finding out exactly where along the x-axis these 3 absorbance values hit the trendline. Is there any way I can do this??

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!

I'm attaching a file with some data that feeds a XY scatter plot with lines connecting the data points. The X axis shows dates, which are interpolated from the data. I'd like the axis to have markers at

1-Jun, 1-Jul, 1-Aug, etc

but I have not found a way to do this. I can play with the axis scale settings and start at 1-Jun, but I cannot set the Major unit to be 1 month. I can set it to 30 days, but our calendar system being what it is, that gets me

1-Jun, 1-Jul, 31-Jul, 30-Aug

and so on.

Any ideas how I can see the 1st of each month?????

thanks for reading

This has been troubling me for nights.

I have data columns of X, Y1, Y2, Y3, Y4...

I used XY scatter to plot them all on one chart, but would like to have a filter on the plotter to select the desired series for comparison, eg, Y1, Y4, and Y5 only. Is there a method of doing this?

I tried using pivot table without joy because it doesn't support XY scatter.

I tried grouping the data sheet, but this gets very messy and is not selectable from the chart.

Please Help!!!

I have data as folow:

bin1 frequency1 bin2 frequency2 bin3 frequency3

0 5 0 10 0 20

2 0 1 5 3 9

5 36 3 2 7 25

.. . . . . .

.. . . . . .

Thank you

(Scatter Charts)") but with a 3-D visual effect like can be done in "3-D

Line" under Line charts.

this would allow a user to create something like a 3-d model of any object.

they allow the option for line charts, and i don't see the same thing for

scatter charts. seems like it would be very helpful, especially for what i

am doing, but for lots of other people too. any suggestions?

dan

is arranged in 4 columns, Series1-x-values, Series1-y-values,

Series2-x-values and Series2-y-values. I would like to draw a line between

the Series 1 and Series 2 xy-coordinate for each row in my data. Does anyone

have good tips on doing this? I would appreciate any help.

Thanks,

Anne

I was wondering if any might tell me if it is possible to have two sets of option buttons on one excel sheet. I know in userforms you must put them in a frame but that option is not available on the actual excel sheets.

Thanks

Saylor

the x setting are time. I am wondering if there is a way with in excel to

select the columns and then plot them accordingly

Thanks

Is it even possible to make a scatter plot with points like that?

Thanks!

When there are two or more series on a scatter plot, it appears that a call to Series.XValues(n) will return "n" rather than the value of the nth point. For example, if there is a Series object named "mySrs", then Code:

will incorrectly return "5", rather than the x-value of the fifth point in the series. This seems to occur only when there are two or more series; if there is only one series, Series.XValues(n) returns the proper value.

Here are the steps to recreate the issue in Excel 2007 with SP1:

* Create a new spreadsheet

* Populate two columns of data for the X and Y values for the first series in the scatter plot. Make sure that the x values are not equally-spaced. (I.e., don't use "1, 2, 3, 4, 5..." for the x values, but instead use someting like "1, 2.3, 4, 4.8, 5.2...")

* Create the scatter plot

* Run a macro to determine the XValues for each point in the series (an example is provided below)

You should notice that--at this point--everything works as expected. Continuing on...

* Populate two additional columns of data for the second series in the scatter plot.

* Add the second series to the scatter plot

* Run the same macro to determine the XValues for each point in the series

At this point you should see that the XValues are simply (and incorrectly) "1, 2, 3, 4..."

Here is the sample macro code that I used to discover the bug:

Code:Sub CheckChart() Dim myCht As Chart Dim mySrs As Series Dim Npts As Integer Set myCht = ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(1).Chart Set mySrs = myCht.SeriesCollection(1) Npts = mySrs.Points.Count Dim NumPts As Integer For NumPts = 1 To Npts Debug.Print "Point " & NumPts & ": XValue=" & mySrs.XValues(NumPts) & ", Value=" & mySrs.Values(NumPts) Next Debug.Print vbCrLf & "=================================" & vbCrLf End SubThe take-away is that if you are using VBA code that depends on the XValues of a series (such as Jon Peltier's excellent line and fill effects procedures), your code will not work properly.

It would be helpful if someone could validate this bug, but—as I indicated above—I'm pretty sure it's real.

I did submit feedback to Microsoft (here), but I'm not confident that it will result in a fix anytime soon.

Hope this helps you avoid hours of frustration and troubleshooting!

I am posting this message for two reasons: (1) partially to confirm the existence of an Excel 2007 VBA bug that appeared after applying Office 2007 SP1, but (2) mostly to highlight the existence of such a bug so that others are aware of it. (I'm pretty sure it's a real bug, and not just an issue with my PC.)

I am having a real problem with Excel 2007 (and PowerPoint 2007) when trying

to manipulate very basic scatter plots (two series, smoothed lines, 8000 data

points per series). When I try selecting one of the series, Excel goes off in

a huff for about 20 or 30 minutes (I am not exaggerating! It "...is not

responding" for that period and loses the frame it normally has, replacing

this with a standard Window title bar superimposed over the normal Excel 2007

one, until it gives back focus) and then repeatedly becomes non responsive

when trying to manipulate any of the properties (line colour, line style

etc). I have tried repairing Office 2007 and have even tried completely

uninstalling and then reinstalling the program set (but have not "cleaned"

the registry of Office entries after the uninstall and therefore still have

all my preferences on reinstallation) but that has not changed anything. If I

do not try to manipulate this type of chart, Excel 2007, and the other Office

programs behave well. I have saved the file to an xls file and can happily

open and adjust the chart to my heartâ€™s content with no issues using Excel

2002 (running on a lower spec machine).

Is this an issue with Excel or perhaps a compatibility problem (I am running

Office 2007 on a Toshiba Tecra M5 laptop with a 2+ GHz Core Duo and1Gb RAM,

with Windows XP SP2)? Is there any way I can tell what might be / is causing

the problem? Are there any simple solutions I can try? Or do I need to

rebuild my laptop installation from scratch (something I am very loathed to

do!)?

Any hl would be very welcome... if I hadn't lost my hair already, I would be

pulling it out by now!

Best wishes, Boris.

I've been struggling to represent data from a spreadsheet of mine for a while now and have not found the answer through searching. Sadly the data I have is sensitive so I can't post the spreadsheet but hopefully I can explain it.

I record survey data from thousands of people. This data records their issues with a service along with demographic data and location they use the service. This is searched through several pivot tables.

What I need to display is the results for a specific location against the grand total so that I can see what one location suffers from a particular issue more than the grand total. (It is all expressed in percentage terms)

The best I have managed so far is to place two pivot tables side by side. One shows every response broken down by issue. The other shows the responses for each issue only at a certain location. Ideally I'd like to be able to plot these results on the same graph but I can't seem to do so.

Hopefully this is clear. If not please ask and I can provide further info.

Many thanks,

Alan

i come up with these codes, but there are two errors occured , how can i solve these ???

Dim ser As Series Dim trend As Trendline With Charts.Add With .SeriesCollection.NewSeries .Values = a (run-time error '1004': unable to set the Values property of the Series class) .XValues = b End With .ChartType = xlXYScatter End With Set ser = ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1) Set trend = ser.Trendlines.Add(Type:=x1Linear, DisplayEquation:=True) (run-time error '1004': unable to get the Add property of the Trendlines class)

No luck finding an answer? You could always try Google.
