    Chart Data Range (2003)

    About the only thing I know about spread sheets is where they're located on my hard drive. Having said that, is there a way for a chart to "dynamically" grow as the data range has additional data added to it (the range expands)? In the attached spreadsheet, every time I enter new data in the first sheet (i.e. B176) I have to change the data range in the chart ("Fuel Pricing Chart"). Any help gratefully appreciated (as opposed to ungratefully appreciated).

    You can define so-called dynamic ranges and use them as source range for the chart.
    - Activate the Fuel Pricing Data sheet.
    - Select Insert | Name | Define...
    - Type ChartLabels in the Names in workbook box.
    - Type the following formula in the Refers to box:
    <code>
    =OFFSET('Fuel Pricing Data'!$A$59,0,0,COUNT('Fuel Pricing Data'!$B$59:$B$65536),1)
    </code>
    - Click Add.
    - Type ChartData in the Names in workbook box.
    - Type the following formula in the Refers to box:
    <code>
    =OFFSET('Fuel Pricing Data'!$B$59,0,0,COUNT('Fuel Pricing Data'!$B$59:$B$65536),1)
    </code>
    - Click Add.
    - Click OK
    - Activate the Fuel Pricing Chart sheet.
    - Select Chart | Source Data...
    - Enter ='Fuel Pricing Data'!ChartData in the Values box.
    - Enter ='Fuel Pricing Data'!ChartLabels in the Category Labels box.
    - Click OK.
    See attached version.

    Wow! Thanks Hans (and especially for doing the work for me). I think I get it; at least I was able to do the same thing in the other chart. I'm dim, but persistent.
