Bubbles / Data / Charts


I have attached a spreadsheet where I have a bubble in graph 1.

(1) I want the number -14 to format as a % I.E. -14%
(2) If the number is negative I want the bubble to fill as red if its negative and green if its positive (both with white bold text)
(3) is there a way from preventing the numbers from slipping over the bars (as in 14,950)

Im trying to make this report as automated as possible!

Many thanks

1)  Change the formula in cell K2 to
=ROUND(J9*100,0)&" %"
Also, change the internal margin of the text box to keep it from wrapping:
text box margin
2)  You'll need VBA automation to make this happen, using a Worksheet_Change event most-likely.

3)  You can manually move the labels higher, but i suspect you'll want automation here also to test the previous year value and ensure that the label clears it as well.

(1) Is resolved, thanks!

(2) im going to post this a separate q, and I can do this on the pivot refresh event

(3) is unnecessary

Thanks Glenn!
