  2. control chart template menu

  3. Click on one of the control chart templates to open it (e.g. Variable > XmR Chart).

  7. The template provides two ways to scroll through your data:
    1. Input the starting value in the "Start Cell" to the right of the chart (i.e. cell L2).
    2. Use the scroll bar below the chart. Click on the arrows or on the bar itself to move backwards and forwards through your data.

Tip: If column A contains special formatting (e.g., dates), you may need to select column C (may vary by chart) and change the format to match column A.


Note: The c, np, p and u chart use all of the data to calculate limits. XmR and XbarR use the first 50 data points to establish limits.

NOTE: Filter/Unfilter functionality available within rolling templates, included in the January 2021 release of QI Macros.
