How to Animate Charts in Excel

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


This is one of the longest videos on the site but it shows one of the most useful in showing you how you can make charts in Excel to be dynamic.

The video contains a lot of information and it uses excel scroll bars to make a slider on the spreadsheet, then it shows how to use Vlookup to take the value from the slider and look up the values to be plotted.

Finally it shows a small VBA routine that shows you how to animate the graph at the click of a button.
