It’s Halloween time. As adults, we can’t go trick or treating. We can of course dress up in costumes and entertain others. But what about the poor spreadsheets. Don’t they deserve some of this fun too?

Hell yeah! So I made a spider web generator in Excel. Just use it to make a spooky cob web pattern and add it to your report / dashboard / time sheet or whatever else. Surprise your colleagues.


How is Spider web chart made…

We take some super strong but amazingly flexible silky thread. You then carefully insert the thread in to VLOOKUP to get a spider web.

Seriously, don’t go poking threads in to VLOOKUPs. You will look silly.

Here is a tutorial explaining how the spider web chart is made. You can learn all about the geometry, math & formulas behind this cool chart. Watch the tutorial below (or see it on our YouTube channel)

It is Diwali in India. So here is a flower pot fireworks generator in Excel. If you like to go beyond earth, here is a cosmic dance between Earth & Venus.

    I didn't see the formula for "spider". So that's a bug in your design Chandoo.
