    Dynamically set graph axis min/max levels

    I created an excel file that provides a rotor balancing solution based on vibration data runs.
    It uses a graphical display similar to GPS signals to locate a receivers location.
    Essentially, it displays 4 circles on a polar plot.

    To show properly, the X and Y axis must have the same min/max, so I "fixed" the axis properties to -10/+10
    The problem is that if the user data is higher than "10", the user is then forced to manually change both X and Y axis accordingly to visually fit the circles on the graph.

    I was hoping there was a way to add a "slider" control that would dynamically change the X and Y axis bounds of the graph.
    Has anyone done something like this?

    Regards
    Jim P

    I would expect to start here (unless you decide to go with Tushar-Meta's preprogrammed add-in): https://peltiertech.com/link-excel-c...lues-in-cells/

    If the "slider" control is important, you can link a slider control to the cell's that you decide to use for the inputs.

    A non macro approach is to use a dummy series that has the largest ABS value, recalc'd and plotted in each quadrant.
    This will then make the autoscaling the same in both x/y axis for both min/max values

    Thanks for your help
    I created a small macro to do exactly what I wanted (re-size graph based on a cell value)
