Data Table

The macro requires a table with your data in the macro body. It needs to follow a certain format. Here is an example used for the above screenshoot:

Series x y r Color
2016 -23 -19 12 maroon
2016 -17 -4 16 maroon
2016 13 -13 13 maroon
2016 -16 16 16 maroon
2017 12 -4 11 blue
2017 -6 19 13 blue
2017 23 12 16 blue
2017 34 14 22 blue
2018 -11 7 9 olive
2018 9 8 10 olive
2018 11 -11 11 olive
2018 16 12 13 olive
2019 6 23 17 teal
2019 -12 -23 6 teal
2019 -4 -21 12 teal
2019 -22 17 14 teal

Header Row

The table must have a header row. It serves a visual purpose only though and the macro will ignore it.

Columns

The table must have at least 5 columns. You can add more if you want for your own purposes but the App will only read the first five and interprete them as follows. Each row represents one bubble.

Series x y r Color
The data series name of this bubble. All rows for one series must be underneath each other (grouped). The x-ccordinate of the bubble The y-ccordinate of the bubble The radius of the bubble in pixel The color of the bubble. You can either enter “random” for a random color or one of the web color names.
