Sparklines are small data charts displayed inside a cell.
Sparklines are defined for one cell, but multiple sparklines can be joined together into a group. The group shares the same properties for rendering the sparkline. The unique data that is defined only for one sparkline is the data range, that a sparkline will use for rendering.
Input range: enter the cell range of the data. Use the shrink button to select the data range with the mouse.
Output range: select the cell range to receive the sparkline. Use the shrink button to select the cell range with the mouse.
Type: select the sparkline type in the drop-down list. Choices are:
Line: draws a line between data values.
Column: draws a bar for each data value.
Stacked: also known as win/loss. Displays equally sized bars indicating positive and negative values.
Line width: enter the line width number manually or use the spin button.
Display empty cells as: choices are available in the drop-down list:
Gap: the missing data is not displayed. The line type discontinues in the gap and the column is not displayed.
Zero: the missing data is displayed as value zero.
Span: for line type only, draws a continuous line connecting the previous value to the next value.
Display hidden: check to show all columns or stacks in the range even when the data is in hidden cells. If unchecked, the hidden data is ignored.
Right-to-left: check to have the sparklines show the data in reverse order.
Series: select the main color for the sparklines.
Negative points: check and select the color for negative points.
High points: check and select the color for high points.
Low points: check and select the color for low points.
Marker: check and select the color for data points (line type only).
First point: check and select the color for first point.
Last point: check and select the color for last point.
Display X axis: check to show the X axis for sparklines.
Vertical minimum, Vertical maximum: check to set the minimum (maximum) value for the Y axis. Select one of following:
Individual: sets automatically the minimum (maximum) value for each sparkline based on the sparkline data range values.
Group: sets the minimum (maximum) value based on the lower and higher values found in the group of sparklines.
Custom: enter the minimum (maximum) value for the sparkline group. Enter the minimum (maximum) values or use the spin buttons.
