PowerPivot T-shirt Giveaway

Recently, I got an email from Emilie, a member of PowerPivot (review) team at Microsoft, who promised to do backflips if I promote their PowerPivot Contest. I did promote the contest (here). But she went back on her backflips promise and instead sent me a 4 PowerPivot t-shirts. They are really cool. But, unfortunately, I cannot wear all of them.

So I am going to give away these 3 shirts (shown below).

  5. Rohit1409 says:

    This is gonna be PowerPivot Awesome T-Shirt 🙂

    Hip Hip Hurray !!!


  6. Nadeem (Meedan) says:

    M happy I am atleast in Top 3 & m getting Power Progamming Book.

    Thanks Chandoo.

    @Shellie - I think he had written not to use macro's to create chart & we misunderstood that we cannot use macro's in the sheet. I had also used 1 macro only to change formatting of chart after selecting dropdown.

    Lets see who gets Powerpivot Tshirt :p

  7. Ameya says:


    Liked the solutions...lots of new ideas ............but somehow liked Nadeem's solution than others

  8. Jordan says:


    Perhaps you would consider sharing the rationale behind why the three winning charts were chosen in the order they were so readers gain additional insight.

  9. Harshad says:

    @Chandoo: #41 used Macro's..Your take on this??

  26. Guru says:

    thanks plzzzzzz give to me

  27. venkatesh says:

    i will accept the fact that i am going crazy… looking at these charts… you will not believe, that how much i gained (and at times effortlessly….by using the charts you all posted)…. Using creativity and inputs from you all, i would like to post that i am earning goodwill at office. and i am proud to say, i DO COPY from this site…. But let me assure you, that i do use my creativity too…. thanks all for such wonderful posts… And NO WORDS to thank Chandoo for his site and selections…………. what can i say… JUST HATS OFF !!

  28. Zilla says:

    Just a question on Nadeem's chart. When I change the drop down on the left to percentage both drop downs disappear for me. Does that happen to others on here?

  29. Tamil says:

    Congratulations to the winners.

    I like L size black T-shirt. 😉

  30. Deep Rawat says:

    hey chandoo!

    I wanna have the Tee! Send me one!

  31. Nadeem (Meedan) says:


    When this dropdown is changes I have attached a small macro on it to change the data labes from $$ to %age. So might be your macros are disabled.

    Or else, I have prepared this chart in Exel 2007 & in case you are using Excel 2003 - Charts behave little different in xl 2003 when prepared in xl 2007.

    This chart is working smoothly on my home & office pc.

    Please confirm if some1 else is experiencing same problem - I will try to lookout for Bugs.

  32. Anurag Kesarwani says:

  39. Lafi says:

    I saw and learned from this website. I found many intresting chart that can amazingly made from excel especially from nadeem. But I think of something that should be more concidered. that's about the use of each chart, e.g : we use pie chart for percentage; we use cluster bar chart for overall comparison (product monthly). but beside of that, thax for inspiration
