Hi,
I have to produce regularly a graph that shows actual values as well as forecasts. Actuals and forecasts are stored in the same database (same format).
On the X axis, there are the monthes (Jan-Dec).
Is it possible to make the forecast monthes appear in a different color (either the data bar or the month name on X axis)to show the difference.
Something like: If(month>actual month;(then) write month in red; (else) write month in blue)
Any help would be appreciated.
Regards
Phil

Don't know about the labels but you can plot two series and make them different colours. If actuals exist make your forecast = #N/A. If there are no actuals make them #N/A. The #N/A values will not be plotted.
