Is there any way of specifying the size of a graph created in Excel 97? I want to have two charts on the same worksheet of the same dimensions so it looks nice!
Thanks in advance

You should be able to resize by simply grabbing the corners of your chart and dragging.
You can also drag the chart to a new location in the same way.

Not quite sure what you mean, you can drag and size freely when the chart is in a worksheet.

Or is this the problem? You dont know when they are the same size?

Use the count of rows/columns to get them the same.

If using Office XP it gives the % in each axis when you first drag the size. Once you stop it goes back to 100% starting next time, so you need to get it right first time.

AFAIK there is no default size setting.

You can force the chart to "Snap" to the cell borders by holding down ALT while dragging.
This may help to ensure they are exactly the same size.

And if its a repetitive charting operation copy and paste the page, then change the source data settings.
