Hi all, and Happy Christmas!
I’ve received plenty of cards and chocolates at work this year and was wondering how to send my best wishes to the people I work or have worked with. This is how I came with the idea for a handmade interactive Christmas Card build in Excel.
Sound strange but check it out first:
Excel was the perfect medium for my wishes as I send dozens of .xlsx files to my colleagues every day and try to present complex findings and trends in a simple and engaging manner.
For building the tree I used a X Y Scatter Chart with Smooth Lines. I gave values of the coordinates of all points so that they form a Christmas tree and linked the lights to the radio buttons using an OFFSET function in Excel.
You can download the file from here: Maggie’s Christmas Card
Hope you enjoyed the result and Happy Christmas!
