# Number of events by day and hour

Hi all,

I would like to set up a graph with number of events by hour and by day.

I don't know how set up data on the spredsheet to do it easily.

Formula and or VBA welcome.

If you have some ideas to present such data, it's welcome too.

I also wanted to establish a chronological curve with dates and times that would allow me to see if the same pattern is replicated every day, but don't know to do it ...

An interesting thing I learned today is:

You can have a dynamic range over formulas (not just values) like this

=OFFSET(Sheet1!$F$1,,,COUNTIFS(Sheet1!$F:$F,"<>",Sheet1!$F:$F,">0"),1)

provided F contains numbers.

=OFFSET(Sheet1!$F$1,,,COUN

provided F contains numbers.

@Gbanik,

You don't need a macro to make a chart dynamic. You can plug the dynamic range names straight into the series formula.

=SERIES(Sheet1!$G$1,TimeChart.xlsm!Period,TimeChart.xlsm!Values,1)

Also, an alternative for defining the dynamic range is

=Sheet1!$F$2:INDEX(Sheet1!$F:$F,COUNT(Sheet1!$F:$F)+1)

Thanks guys you're really amazing.

I split points as each solution is very interesting, but for me each of you should have 1000 points !

only one line of macro in the code to reset the chart.

BTW, the line could also be

Target.Worksheet.ChartObje
