Help with Journey Roadmap Graphic

EE Pros,

Can someone who is wickedly good at Excel Graphics take a look at my pass at a Roadmap Graphic?  The X Axis is Time (Mo./Yr.) and the Y Axis is value.  The Data Points "Use Cases" should be the additional column that gets mapped into the Line Graphic as the description as to the X and Y Point.  I have spacing problems Labels.  And finally, I'm certain that most EE Pros are more creative then I am in displaying this graphic.

Any help is much appreciated and "thank you" in advance.

Do you have a non macro version of the file that you can upload? Our Firewall won't let me download xlsm files.

Just a single sheet with the data and the graphic will suffice.

Rob,

Thanks for taking a look. Here's the one you requested.  What I'm trying to do is be able to put in up to 10 (could be less but not greater) Use Cases, give them an X and Y value (Timing/Value) and have it adjust the curve  (generally representing a scaling aspect) and show the data points (i.e. the Use Case descriptions).  This will be used to rapidly represent a journey map or a roadmap.

Thanks again,

B.

Sorry, got side tracked on other work.

Can you draw up freehand what you would like the end result to look like; not totally clear from the sample.

Thanks

Rob,

No problem. Was beginning to worry about you!  You're always so fast.

So, I've attached what I was trying to get in place via Excel.  The idea here is that  you could put in "a descriptor" to define the milestone (big picture) and then add in the cumulative value (for Y), which would have it scale upward right and perhaps logarithmic, and over time frame (for X).  I think it will take a couple of questions to EE to get this refined just right but wanted to get started with someone who is creative and knows Excel Graphics.

Thank you,

B.

Taken another look at this and not getting very far.

Rob,

Would it be better to use a macro or formula in a pptm Powerpoint graphic instead?  I would have thought that the plot line would be easy to do with the X/Y Axis.  The harder part is to have the "Labels" show up in the correct place and auto adjust for sizing.

Thanks for continuing to think about how this may be done.

Indeed, I could get the plot line but couldn't get the labels to be correct.

I tried writing some VBA to adjust the labels but my Excel crashed and I lost it; it wasn't working too well anyway so gave up on that avenue.

I think I will have to duck out at this point; VBA in PowerPoint sounds like an idea but I don't have any experience of VBA in PowerPoint.

Apologies I can't help any further.

Regards
Rob

Rob,  Completely understand.  I'll re-issue the question.  I have an idea on how this may be done.  I also checked across the Web and no one has done what I'm asking to do.  You can't even buy it.  Journey Maps?  Yes...available....but not dynamic and multidimensional (X, Y and Label).

Thanks again for looking at this.  Hope your system gets restored quickly.
