Hello all,

I have attached a graph which has forecast infromation on.  Each day shows The previous 7 days forecast leading up the the final figure which is in black.  When I hover over each bar it dhows me whether it is -7 Days, - 6 Days etc (Makes sense we you see the attached file honest).

What I would like to achieve is rather than show -6 Days I would like it to show Monday in the Sunday section, Tuesday in the Monday section and Wednesday in the Tuesday section.  Basicall, I want the day of the week shown rather than simply showing how old the information is in days.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask as I would love to nail this as it will make the graphs easier to read by my colleagues (and me lol) :)

Many thanks in advance, Alan.

Hi,
check attached sample. I used your example and did it for dates (15.3.2012 instead of -1 Day) and in the second table for day names (Thursday instead of -1 Day)

Sorry, I may not have explained myself clearly.  The first bar in each graph is NOT always the same.  In your example it comes back as 09/03/2012.

On Sunday the first bar should come up with the label Sunday, second column as Monday etc.  On Monday the bar should come up with the label Monday, second column as Tuesday etc.
Hope this makes sense?

I have to say day names are not fixed but it is a formula, that means when you open it tomorrow day names will change for each cell in the table

no problem, anytime

Sorry,

I misread what you meant.  The last bar (the black one) should ALWAYS by the na,e of what day it relates to.  So for sunday the black bar should be sunday, with the bar to its left as Saturday and it keeps going.  Therefore, in the moday section the black bar would be monday, the bar to its left would be sunday etc.. etc..

Sorry to be a pain, Alan.
