Hi
I recently had a query from someone asking how to format different parts of a line chart differently. Apparently they could do it in 2003 but couldn't see how to do it in 2007. First of all I didn't know that could be done in 2003 :-) so how would it be done in 2007. For example, the idea would be that part of the line would be in black, and then another part of the same line in yellow...
Thanks.

Hi,

if you click on the line  once, then Right click on it , the bottommost command you get is Format Data Series (that means that wathever format you swet now will aplly to the whole line), if afterwards you click on the part of the line again, only that part becomes active. You can then Right click and the comand changes into Format Data Point. Now only that part of the line will be formated as you choose. You will most likely change the fill color...

Have a nice day
