    today's date indicator on timeline graph

    Hi all,

    On a graph showing dates on the x axis, is it possible to have some kind of marker indicating today's date that changes in real time as the date changes?

    Ideally I would like a red line bissecting the x axis, labelled with "today", or the date.

    yes. add a dummy series that is based on a cell using the NOW() function.

    For something of an intermediate excel user, could you explain in a little more detail?

    which part exactly do you need more detail on?

    Can you post your workbook so I can explain in context to your data

    Remember to update the dates in the example as it is quite old and todays data is beyond the example data set
