Ok, got a question for the excel fans

you can pickup a sample sheet with the instructions here

http://www.bredlum.com/ee_temp/hist.xls

the file contains
-data how it looked like in the original setup
-instructions what you see in the graph
-a bitmap of the resulting graph

this was originally build in APL and has to be migrated to Excel

Any takers out here?

thanks for all the feedback i get, i'm simply to lazy to do this myself it looks like *real* work

Tried to look at your file "hist.xls" in Excel 2000 and it crashes Excel.

Hi bruintje

Had a look at the graph.
Tried out an idea and it looks promising.
Produce two graphs one on top of other.
Top one has to have mainly no patterns
so as to be transparent.
Bottom graph has thick columns.
Top graph has thin columns.
Top graph has nine series.
Format of top graph:
Series 1,4,7 dark brown.
Series 2,5,8 light brown.
Series 3,6,9 no border, no fill.
Obviously the data has to be created
from your table for both graphs.
Then the two have to be lined up.

Thats the suggestion, I await others.

Regards

that's really weird, i never have any problems with the posting there or picking up

it's too hard to put it all in text

anyone having trouble send me a reply address so you can at least have a look at it

Packhorse > thanks for the input that's the best i got so far

I want to do this in code and i know you're not going to do that for me, but i'll take your instructions and see how far i can come with it
