Data Wrangler UPDATE: The Stanford/Berkeley Wrangler research project is complete, and the software is no longer actively supported. Instead, we have started a commercial venture, Trifacta. For the most recent version of the tool, see the free Trifacta Wrangler. Why wrangle? Number Formats in Microsoft Excel The original version of this article appeared in TechTrax Ezine. Number Formats are little codes that help you control the appearance of numbers in Excel. They are not difficult, and can also be used to help with a few tricks. I'm using Excel charts in many of these examples, but these number formats also apply to values in cells. You can view or edit a number format by double clicking on a text element, then clicking on the Number tab in the dialog, shown below. A number format consists of up to 4 items, separated by semicolons. You can make long numbers easier to read by inserting a thousands separator (a comma for those working in the US). Defining Colors in Number Formats The chart below shows how to make negative numbers appear different, something accountants need to know at a glance. Let's use the three part number format [Blue]$#,##0;[Red]$#,##0;$#,##0, so we can color positive numbers blue, negatives red, and keep zeros in their default black. Hide Zeros in Data Labels Use "?"
iVisDesigner iVisDesigner stands for Information Visualization Designer, which is a platform in which users can interactively create customized information visualization designs for a wide range of data structure. iVisDesigner was started around March 2013 as the undergraduate thesis project of Donghao Ren, its overall goal comes partially from the previous Visualization Assembly Line project, which allows users to freely create axis-based visualizations for multidimensional datasets, like scatterplots and parallel coordinates. In iVisDesigner, we employed a new approach. By allowing users to interactively create mappings from data elements to graphical elements, we support interactive creation of information visualization designs. iVisDesigner is much more expressive, allowing a wide range of visualization designs for different data structures be accomplished without any programming.

Excel Hero Blog - Excel Hero Hello All. I am quite honored that Daniel has invited me to become a regular contributor here at the Excelhero.com/Blog and hope I can maintain the high standard on content that this site has become renowned for. I look forward to your feedback on this and future posts. I figured I'd give it a go in Excel and this post documents my approach to a solution. Below you see a rotating array of blue crosses and 3 yellow dots. n reality, the 3 yellow spots are continuously present, honest! What to see On the right you see a rotating array of blue crosses and 3 yellow dots. The actual MIB Excel model is much smoother than this animated GIF representation. The MIB Model There were three approaches I thought about using for this optical illusion. 1. 2. 3. Choice of Attack The first method wouldn't suit the needs of the illusion as each marker doesn't rotate as the series is rotated, but instead stays fixed relative to the ordinal axis. Setup This gave me a table of X and Y values for each point. Rotation
