Sudeep doesn’t want to create an entire table of data.
Instead, he wants individual text boxes that appear on the map. Here’s an example of what such a slide might look like.
You can give the object an outline and fill (right-click it and choose Format Object) or remove the outline and fill, but that’s about it. In the end, Sudeep came up with a great option himself, based on what I had suggested.
He inserted a text box and formatted it the way he wanted.
Nevertheless it is possible to transpose the data source (see Transposing linked data).
In addition to the data, some cells to the left and on top are reserved for category and series labels.
Imagine if you could save yourself an hour a week (or maybe more) by automating the process of updating charts and graphs. There’s an Excel technique for that, so put your geeking cap on, and let’s get to it. Before you know it, you’re throwing away an hour here and an hour there – or more, depending on how much of your workload is focused on reporting.
You can also add a "New" button to the data entry form.
We have an appendix file with instructions on how they work at the end of this post, and they are: -Count -If -Named ranges -Defining series values in charts and graphs -Sumifs -Offset If you’d like to follow along with the process, here’s a supplemental excel document. The old, manual process usually looks something like this: 1. All of the tables, charts and graphs will all keep themselves updated automatically. Those named ranges, in turn, will be defined with offset and count formulas.
Redefine the data powering your graph If you repeat this process for several charts and graphs each week, that time can add up.
If Power Point is not yet running, it starts automatically.
In Power Point, when the mouse pointer is on a slide, the familiar insertion rectangle appears.
