Answer: How do I shade in part of a graph?
To shade in part of a graph in Microsoft Excel, you can use the "area chart" feature. Here are the steps to follow:
Your graph should now have the desired shading above the line. If you need to adjust the shading or the line, simply repeat these steps until you achieve the desired effect.

Hi,
You can use additional series to provide the shading, which combination of chart styles you use depends on the type of line and shade. With a flat line you could use columns as in this example. In your case the lower parts of the columns would have no fill pattern. http://peltiertech.com/Excel/Charts/...ackground.html For more complex lines you can use area charts http://www.andypope.info/ngs/ng21.htm And for really complex shape you may need to resort to a VBA solution. http://peltiertech.com/Excel/Charts/VBAdraw.html Cheers Andy reid wrote: I am trying to graph an inequality, and to do so I need to shade just a specific part of the graph above the line.

How do I shade in part of a graph?
Hi,
Is there a trick to using this technique for shading part of the plot area for a bar chart? I've had a couple of goes using the info from the link you provided for line graphs, but had no luck so far. My chart has 20ish bars, with a yaxis that's 0100% in 10% intervals. How can I shade the 4070% plot area? Got the feeling I might be missing something obvious...
