In one column, I have a day column, eg. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
In another column next to it, I have a number value. (eg. $2000, $5000, $6000)
__DATE__________VALUE____ Monday | $5000 Monday | $9000 Tuesday | $2000 Wednesday | $6000 Wednesday | $6000
These values will change periodically.
I need to insert a graph, that displays the grouped values.
eg. At current point, the graph shows:
Monday $5000 Monday $9000 Tuesday $2000 Wednesday $6000 Wednesday $15000
I need the graph to instead show the same values, but grouped by DAY:
Monday $14000 Tuesday $2000 Wednesday $21000
As I said, both the day and the value next to it will change when need be, so I would prefer this to be grouped automatically with some sort of forumla.
Is there any way to do this?
I have had a read on the SUMIF function, but can’t seem to make it work with this.
What you want is a Pivot Chart. This is very easy to create, though will vary depending on your excel version.
If you want something to be up to date as you add more information, another option would be to put a SUMIF formula in a section of the workbook, like another tab or hidden column/row, and have the graph look off that.
