i have excel 2010, and i am messing with an excel spreadsheet created in excel 2003 ( don't know if that matters )
whoever made this spreadsheet, made a series in a chart. and now the person that uses the chart wants to change all the dates from 2010 to 2011.
is there a way to do this without going to each entry on the chart - what i mean is there like a global change?

Hello,

could you upload a spreadsheet with the same chart and some dummy sample data? It is not quite clear where the change needs to occur. It could be in the source data, in the series definition, etc.

In order to answer your question, I'd need to see your chart.

cheers, teylyn

JeffBeall,

Do all of these charts just have the date or is there other text with, such as:

2010 Sales Numbers or
Regional Count 2010 By Dealer

Can you post the file?

I also don't know how your sheet/chart looks like but if you have a simple chart like the attached example and want to change 2010 for 2011 on your chart axis labels, just select the range where you have your dates and make a Find and Replace (Ctrl+H) finding 2010 and replacing for 2011.

On my previous image, I putted "Replace with: 2010" by mistake! It should be "Replace with: 2011", like on this new image.
