Excel 2003- Charts- date and time format on x-axis of XY chart

Excel 2003- Charts- date and time format on x-axis of XY chart

Price: FREE

I am trying to plot an XY graph with x-axis data in date and time format but Excel keeps counting the x-axis data as "data labels". It is in the format mm/dd/yy HH:mm ex) 10/28/06 17:00
Instead, Excel appears to be turning my XY plot into a line plot (for example, the first date is assigned an x-value of 1, the second value assigned an x-value of 2 and so on so that each date/time x-value is evenly spaced).
I would like to find a way to plot this data so that it is spaced relative to date and time.

Chart with x-axis as date/time

Free: Yes
Tags: Excel › Charts

I have a spreadsheet with dates in column A and times in column B (when data was gathered). I have a chart using the x-axis for column A (date). How can
I also get the chart to display the time? Basically, right now the x-axis is in the format 09/24/06 but I would like for it to be in the format 09/24/06 at 12:00 (or something like that). Can I use a custom number format that pulls data from multiple spreadsheet columns?

Charts: How can I get a date axis to include hours and minutes

I am creating a chart monitoring (my dog's) breathing rate over time. I cannot check the rate at the same time each day so data entries are at different times of day.
I have the date column in my spreadsheet in the format dd/mm/yy hh:mm
When I go to make a simple line chart, if the horizontal axis is in date format, it only resolve the day part of the information, and so all my data for each day appears in the one horizontal place.
I can set the axis as text type, and I can then see each data point ok - but it does not reflect the time element of my data.
Please can you advise me how to get around this?

Line Chart - Problems with labeling X-Axis

Free: Yes
Tags: Excel › Charts

I am trying to create a line chart but am having trouble with labeling the X-Axis. The graph is charting temperature on the y-Axis and the date and time of the testing is running along the X-Axis. There are at least 1096
time entries and I would like the X-axis labels to only display the date which is only two days and not the time (reason for all the entries). The X-Axis is currently displaying the time at a 90 degree angle and only one date at an 180 degree angle, because of the numerous time entries the second date does not show up along the X-Axis.

Why Does Date Format Change on Chart

Free: Yes
Tags: Excel › Charts

I'm using Excel 97 SR-2 on a Windows XP machine with the date format under
Regional Settings set to dd/mm/yy.
I have a simple line chart (on a chart sheet) drawing data (date on X-axis and data on Y-axis) from three different worksheets, and am experiencing a problem with the dates on it randomly changing format from dd/mm/yy to m/d/yy. This is despite the fact that the dates in the worksheets are in dd/mm/yy format, and I have formatted the chart X-axis in that format also. Interestingly, if I click from the chart to one of the worksheets then back to the chart, the dates "correct" themselves (ie, show in dd/mm/yy format again).
If anyone can provide an explanation, and preferably a 'fix', I would love

You can even pass in a date range for the x axis and it will create the x axis labels for you. Thats something that the Google Chart API doesnt provide you. Then, you can also pass in a date just like you do in PHP to get the labels formatted just the way you want.
