What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you insert a ring-typed chart in excel, you can add multiple data ranges which will be represented by different rings in the chart.

awesome, can you email me your example and I'll award the points. Thanks!


<<Experts Exchange policy does not allow posting email addresses in Questions or Comments. One reason is to avoid having questions solved outside the forum--because then the solution does not get posted in the question thread.

In this particular case, the "ring" chart mentioned by the Expert is called a "Donut" chart in US version of Excel. It works exactly as described, so I believe the intent of posting the full solution has been honored.

But I still removed the email address.

cstratton,

emailing is not a smart idea because other people then cannot benefit from our discussion.
I can however post the example here, if you click on the hyperlink below, you will find the example file.

The question I have is how to create a true spiral, where the "center" of the spiral moves across the page as the visual goes through each revolution.  This example is ok, as far as it goes, but it does not address the need for a "moving" spiral.

A true spiral chart can only be made using x-y coordinate scatter plots such as in the Microsoft article as mentioned by SafetyFish.

Maybe you could use something like
