Hi

I have a column chart that feeds of a table of data, however the data changes in number or rows (X Axis) and columns (series), is it possible to automate the chart so that if there are additional columns or less columns the chart will automatically add or remove them from the series and the legend??????

I would like to specify the number of columns to include and the chart would do it automatically.

Any help would be greatly received

Excel Facts

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

Hi Peter,
Many thanks for your message above, i have been reading on the peltiertech.com site this morning, however your link is closer to what i want thank anything i found, however, my column header are variable i do have a common marker (No.1) above each column tho, do you know if its possible to have a dynamic chart that will look across a range of columns and only plot if a marker is in place?

Not sure if i'm explaining myself very well, my chart is a column chart with up to 6 columns of data plotted from a table which i have automated so that between 1 and 6 columns of data are dispayed in the table with a fixed number of rows, if i set the chart to include all 6 columns in the source data, when there are only 2 columns the chart is gappy, also if i set chart to only 3 colums of data, when it changes to 5 columns 2 are missing. I am looking to amend my chart so it only plots data present, no more, no less.

Is this possible??

Cheers
