    Ever wanted a quick way to chart a mathematical equation in Excel?

    This article describes a way to do that with just 4 entry cells and a set of defined names.

    A neat trick. I had problems doing it manually, and found your example and that seems to work.

    A couple of corrections for the article:
    Your 'formula' refers to A1 it should be B1
    Your 'yValues' is missing the end parentheses
    your "series formula" for the chart uses semi-colons, not commas (I know this is language dependence, so it should at least be commented on)

    Thanks.

    Turns out I replicated an old workbook by Stephen Bullen:

    http://www.oaltd.co.uk/Excel/Default.htm Look for ChtFrmla.zip

    I've editd my article to show proper credits and changed a couple of things so one can also use sin(x) and similar functions.
