Nameing scattered data in chart (dot's)


N

NielsChr

I consider myself as a fairly competent excel user, but I seriuosly got
stucked on this on!!

Im duing a simple scattered chart with prices up along Y-axis and miles
along the X-axis ... But I would like each scattered dot to be named after
"my coloum N" which is car1, car2, car3 ...etc (Meaning .. If I have 30
Cars...where is car no. 1 in the chart and where is car no. 30) ??

The only luck I had so fare was either to show the X, Y- value or chart
name!!!
Hope someone can assist me if it is possible..

Thanks in advance
NielsChr

Awesome .. i love it!

I love that fact that it still is compadable to other versions than just the
English!! (I my self is using a Danish Excel version .. but still works)

Nice little application, and easy to handle.

Thank you very much Andy

Hello Again.

Andy I hope you can help come up with a solution to the problem I
encountered from using the software you showed.

I do like it still ofcause, but it comes with an issue so fare!!
My situation is this:

I got my self around 200 rows of different car types ... when I wish my
diagram to show only one certain car type, I filter out the unwanted cars and
then leave my diagram showing only the 1 car type I like to view (e.i., VW
golf (maybe 18 cars))
Now the original row numbers to these 18 cars (label names) I link to may
vary from 3 to 78, but the chart labels still starts a 1 .. going up to 18
(or the amount of cars selected) - now I would like the labels to show
3,5,19,23 ...etc

Am I stucked with this error or am I using it incorrectly??

Hope to hear from you again.

Hello again Andy

I think I understand your solution of somehow making a combination that
shows the wanted sequence!

But Im not quiet understanding the logic in your example!
As the original "non-filtered" data shows that the labels linked to column B
("data") with the value 1 is "AA" "CC" "EE" "GG" and "II" nevertheless when
you filter out values equal to 2 you'll get that the labels linked to value
equal 1 is "AA" "BC" "CE" "DG" and "EI" in the chart eventhough the data
actually shows a third way (which still is not aligned with the original
data!)
Actually what you end up with ,in you link
(http://www.andypope.info/ngs/ng57.htm) , is the same diagram as you start
out with!! - Making me alittle confused :p

Maybe I just misunderstood the actaully purpose you are trying to illustrate
.... anyway, I appriciate your help and if you understand where I go wrong am
I very interested in receiving your assistance.

thank you once again

Perhaps what is confusing is that the text used for the labels, in
column G, is within the hidden rows. So you can only see A,E and I.

Cheers

Yes, that am I aware of (the figures between the hiden rows), but I dont
follow this:

when you have the complete data it is clear which value are equal 1 (as I
understand it) that is AA CC EE ..etc ... and when you then want only to
illustrate values of 1 in the chart (you filter out all values equal 2 (BB DD
FF ..etc)) and then the chart (according to my wish/need) should only show AA
CC EE ..etc, but instead it shows AA BC CE etc ...
And then I cant align this to the original full data?? - make sence??

Once again thanks.

Furthermore Andy ..just wanna say I like your formulas, but I cant seem to
adjust it to my need which is written in prior statement.

The example is setup so only the righthand column displays the correct
labelling. The lefthand columns are linked directly with the original
cells and as such these do not ignore the hidden rows.

If you are still stuck you can email your file,
