Macro to create charts



I recently had this question answered very comprehensively. However, I've
been told that I need to show my data on a chart in % form. Can anyone help
modify the following macro to automatically generate charts where the source
data is on a row by row basis with four columns showing data (don't need to
show targets on this one). I've tried to modify it myself, but can't seem to
get it working. The columns are all next to each other - no gaps. To clarigy,
I need Name, %Score1, %Score2, %Score3 & %Score 4. That's it.

Select your range (including header row) and run this macro:

Sub MakeMyCharts()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim rng As Range
Dim Yaddr As String
Dim Y2addr As String
Dim Xaddr As String
Dim iRow As Long
Dim iSrs As Long
Dim iAddr As Long
Dim cht As Chart

Set ws = ActiveSheet
If TypeName(Selection) <> "Range" Then
MsgBox "Select the data range for the charts"
Exit Sub
End If
Set rng = Selection

For iRow = 2 To rng.Rows.Count

Set cht = Charts.Add
cht.Name = rng.Cells(iRow, 1).Value & " - " & rng.Cells(iRow, 2).Value
For iSrs = cht.SeriesCollection.Count To 1 Step -1

With cht.SeriesCollection.NewSeries
.Name = rng.Rows(iRow).Resize(1, 2)
Yaddr = "=("
Y2addr = "=("
Xaddr = "=("
For iAddr = 3 To 9 Step 2
Yaddr = Yaddr & "'" & ws.Name & "'!" & rng.Cells(iRow,
iAddr).Address(ReferenceStyle:=xlR1C1) & ","
Y2addr = Y2addr & "'" & ws.Name & "'!" & rng.Cells(iRow, iAddr +
1).Address(ReferenceStyle:=xlR1C1) & ","
Xaddr = Xaddr & "'" & ws.Name & "'!" & rng.Cells(1,
iAddr).Address(ReferenceStyle:=xlR1C1) & ","
Yaddr = Left$(Yaddr, Len(Yaddr) - 1) & ")"
Y2addr = Left$(Y2addr, Len(Y2addr) - 1) & ")"
Xaddr = Left$(Xaddr, Len(Xaddr) - 1) & ")"
.Values = Yaddr
.XValues = Xaddr
.ChartType = xlLineMarkers
End With

With cht.SeriesCollection.NewSeries
.Name = "Target"
.Values = Y2addr
.ChartType = xlColumnClustered
End With

End Sub

The easiest thing to do is to use a separate range that contains formulas
that convert the raw values to percentages, then apply this VBA procedure to
the calculated range.
