Grouping graphs so they have the same y axis settings

Greetings everyone,

I wanted to see if there was a way to group graphs together so that I can make a change to 1 graph and it will propagate to the others in the group. I have a spreadsheet that has 80 graphs...basically 20 graphs in 4 columns. I need the graphs in each row to have the same y axis settings according to the graph with the largest number. The x axis is the same across all graphs. Is there a way to group or link the graphs together in such a manner?

Thanks in advance,
Jeff

What is =ROMAN(40) in Excel?
The Roman numeral for 40 is XL. Bill "MrExcel" Jelen's 40th book was called MrExcel XL.

One way to do this is to duplicate the series in the different charts in all the charts (and then 'mask' those you don't want shown). This way Excel will use the same y axis settings for all the charts.

Another approach would be to use code. A shareware solution to consider is TM AutoChart

Change the format of the visible elements to 'None'. For a column chart this would be the border and the fill. For a line or xy scatter chart this would be markers and line. You may also have to delete elements from the legend (if you are using the default legend).
