# Line Graph

Hi all,

So full disclosure, I'm a total Excel noob so I think my problem is a pretty easy fix for someone who knows their stuff.

Essentially, I am making a key performance indicator (KPI) dashboard for a Shipping/Receiving department. The main thing we are tracking is delivered in full on time rates (DIFOT) over time.

I want to make a graph using "column E" the X-Axis and "column L" as the Y-Axis. Column L is essentially just stating whether the shipment was delivered in full on time, which is a simple binary yes or no answer. I think the easiest way to do it is simply to put a "1" in that cell for yes, and a "0" for no. However as you can see in the picture when I put a 1 in that cell it autopopulates to 1/1/1900.

Question1 : How do I stop this from auto-populating to 1/1/1900?

Question 2: How would I go about creating a graph that automatically updates each time someone new info into cells in column E and L, and reflects DIFOT as a percent on the Y with all 12 months on the X? Like I mentioned since DIFOT is a binary yes or no I think the easiest is to do Y=1 and N=0,but I want it to automatically update the graph and be reflected as a percent on the Y.

Appreciate the help in advance. Please let me know if you need any additional info to help with this solution.

Thanks!!!!!

First, you should really only bump once every 24hours.

Second, question 1 is just a formatting issue - format those cells as General.

Question 2 I'm not really clear on what you want - a percentage of what?

Excel contains over 450 functions, with more added every year. That’s a huge number, so where should you start? Right here with this bundle.
