( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have a simple two column spreadsheet.

Column A contains names, and B counts of the names.

How can I sprinkle column A's names along the X axis of my chart (instead of getting 1,2,3 etc)?

I've read all the documentation I can find on this but I'm stuck!

My efforts so far...

use Win32::OLE etc $axisrange="a1:a$i"; # names $range = "b1:b$i"; # counts of names print "range $range\n"; $Sheet->Range("$range")->Select; my $Chart = $Book->Charts->Add; $Chart->{ChartType} = -4100; $Chart = $Excel->ActiveChart; $SeriesCol = $Chart->SeriesCollection->Add; $SeriesCol->{XValues} = $Sheet->Range("$axisrange"); $Chart = $Excel->ActiveChart; etc
Can anyone offer a simple example or let me know what I'm doing wrong?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
