I am currently working on the manual, to include all those changes... and on the Excel 2003 version.

PS : the "Template" file looks like an empty file... It just contains all the VBA code for SfE to work but does not contain examples of how to use SfE.

I you want to easily share files using SfE formulas in a corporate environment where it is forbidden to install programs on local PCs, the Template file is your solution. Use is as a New blank file, rename it keeping the .xlsm extension and share it as any other XL file.

Hi, I tested several versions of the Sparklines Addin together with the Palo Addin 3.1.4161 in Excel 2007 DE(all patches).

The shapes do not get updated when the Palo formulas fetch new data. Refresh shapes works only in the Excel 2003 addin (3.8beta tested).

I have to edit the formulas (F2, mouseclick, return) to get the shapes updated.

Anything you can do about it?

Your work is much appreciated. I'm using it with Excel 2007.

When my code sorts a sheet, your xlAppEvent_SheetCalculate(ByVal Sh As Object) fires...anyway to remedy this?

Hi, I'm an Open Office user who is not familiar with macro programming for either MS Excel or Open Office Calc. Do these macros work with Open Office Calc? How would I use them? - Paul

@ Pete :

SfE will not work with OpenOffice.
And I do not plan any Oo version either.

Hi, I'm new to sparklines, but it seems like a great tool. Are there any known issues around using auto-fill with the linechart() formula? If I fill in the top cell in a column with it, then fill to all the cells below, it seems to superimpose the top chart over each subsequent chart.

Amazing work you are doing here! I was trying the Sparklines For Excel in 2010, It doesnt work... I want to write some about it in my blog!

Do you have the Sparklines for Excel 2010?

Thanks and keep the amazing work!

amazing work, it looks great but I don´t undestand those color codes you shared on a .pdf file. They don´t look like RGB. What format is that? Can I use the ColorBrewer RGB color codes? Do I need a transformation?

Thanks a lot for your work

When two cells are merged, SfE is not able to refresh graphs after a delete shape.
It is espceially true for Bulletchart.drawchart() maybe for others spaklines too....

The code seems retreiving an empty cell instead of the SfE formula (bulletchart) ad cells are merged....
Hope this help.
