    Creating a simple graphical drawing from Excel input
    « on: January 25, 2010, 04:47:59 PM »
    I am trying to find a program that will convert dimensions that are entered into Excel, into a simple graphical drawing.  The drawing needs to be to scale.  Are there any programs that will do this? where can i get this from? who can i talk to?

    Excel has the capability to create many types of charts/graphs.  Have you looked at that?

      I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish. You can insert pictures as a background for a chart in Excel.  Would that work?

        its hard to explain but,
        basicaly i want the user, who has little computor knowledge, to input the outer dimensions, height, width and position of doors and windows of a brick wall.  Once this is done i need a program to automatically create a picture of the wall which is to scale and shows the position of all the indivigual bricks.  I'm not even shore if this can be done but if there exists something similar it may help.
