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).
How does this giveaway work?
- I can only send these shirts to addresses in India.
- To participate, just post a comment on this article. Anything goes.
- The shirts are in Girls L, Girls M, Guys L sizes.
- This contest closes on 3rd July, 11:30 PM IST (Indian Standard Time, we are GMT +5:30)
- What are you waiting for? Go!
That is all for now. I will see you next week with more Excel awesomeness. You have a beautiful weekend then.

aaaah, pity that I'm from slovakia
Sad didnt got Kindle.....Looking forward to get at least this T-Shirt and Surprise prizes...
Congratulations to the 3 winners and Congratulations to All who participated.
hey, you said no macros!! #41 has macros!
This is gonna be PowerPivot Awesome T-Shirt 🙂
Hip Hip Hurray !!!
M happy I am atleast in Top 3 & m getting Power Progamming Book.
@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
Liked the solutions...lots of new ideas ............but somehow liked Nadeem's solution than others
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.
@Chandoo: #41 used Macro's..Your take on this??
Chandoo, T shirt belongs to me because this is my first comment in your website 🙂
Hmmm interesting Tee... send me the Men's L 🙂 ... I am from bangalore 🙂
This PowerPivot t-shirt might turn out to be only reason after which my wife don't cry over me glued to maze of jails where numberes are captured - my wife's interpretation of spreadsheet 😉
Contest was really great... I learnt lot of new approach of looking at the data set. Keep more coming in...
Great contest! The downloads are a course all on their own. By the way, I really need a tee shirt. I just lost 30 lbs. (hee hee).
Congrats to the winners. You guys really inspire us..

Hi Chandoo, L size fits me so well. Also my gf says that color black turns her on, so please help 😉

Thanks Chandoo for the great website and excellent stuff on excel. You have really made learning excel a fun and thrilling experience.
I work in the field of analytics and would love to get the PowerPivot tshirt (Men L).
I came to know about you from First edition of ET Wealth dated Dec 13 2010. The Article Titled " Work Excel " is a big source of inspiration for me and i thank you for unraveling the secrets of Excel with mind blowing concepts , ideas , homework & Contests. It's like All creative brains under a single roof.
Thank you for being a source of inspiration for digging Excel.
simply i need de tshirt (men L)
thanks plzzzzzz give to me
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 !!
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?
Congratulations to the winners.
I like L size black T-shirt. 😉
I wanna have the Tee! Send me one!
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.
Contest still open??
If so i would like the Girls m sizr (for my gf).
Also better chance of getting 😛
Just downloaded a project remplate from this site. Been my first visit ... but a fruitful one ! I'm going to come back often for more useful stuff. Way to go Chandoo !!!
I am not here for T-shirt but i gain lot of knowledge because of your site as well Charting i am using exclusively.

Oops ... Am I late here ?
Chandoo, it's not fair ! 🙂 You wished us to have a beautiful weekend and I literally had one, on a trip with my college friends in western ghats of Karnataka !
And here I am , an avid follower of your blog.

Congratulations to the Winners
[...] I thought I’d give you a little fun and play “Excel Chart Judge”. Take a look at the 78 Excel Chart Alternatives and decide which ones are the best. Then go to the blog post where Chandoo picked the winners: Excel Chart Contest Winner. [...]
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
Appreciate and let me have the file
