Hi Excel Users!

I am trying to find how this spreadsheet (attached) created a chart using what seems like an array formula of TABLE (?)

The X-Y graph created uses {=TABLE(,C4)} as the Y values (see attach).

How do I trace this TABLE function? And how do I apply this idea to new charts with functions?

Thank you for any of your help and have a good weekend!

Hi Budana,

The TABLE function only works in conjunction with Excel's Data Table feature, so you will only see it where a data table has been used.

You can see a complete explanation of data tables in the following video lessons:

Expert Skills Lesson 7-1 Create a single-input data table

Expert Skills Lesson 7-2 Create a two-input data table

If you create a data table using the skills taught in those lessons you should be able to apply it to charts like the one in your example.

I hope this helps, but please feel free to reply if you need any more help with this.
