    Chart Formatting (XP)

    Hi All,

    I'm trying to format a data series within a chart. When I attempt to customize the data series area "fill effect" the transparency slider is grayed out. It seems that no matter what chart type or format I select this is always not available. But alas this is just what I need to make my chart awesome. What gives?

    It seems that transparency for chart fills has been implemented in the latest version of Excel for the Macintosh, but not yet in Excel 2002 for Windows; I guess that the presence of the transparency slider in the chart fill dialog is in anticipation of a future enhancement.

    John Walkenbach has a nice workaround; see Excel User Tip: Creating a transparent chart series.
