Did you remove the sample data while the sheet was protected?
If not you might have accidentally deleted some formulas.
If yes, how many trades are in your journal now? If there is not enough data yet you get Div/0 errors on the overview tab as there is insufficient data to calculate the stats from.

i just downloaded the file from your post, then removed the journal data. the journal sheet isnt protected by default, should it be?

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

Because you have also selected the protected cells..
Green heading indicates (in most cases) unprotected cells underneath.
Easiest is to delete the data column by column (except heading).
If you get an error message then, just move on to the next column....

for some reason the screen grab didnt get the highlighted areas in the pic... i had all of the green columns in the picture highlighted..

also after clearing out the journal one by one, i went to the overview tab to put in my starting balance and this is what i got:

not sure if expected or not.. i know the 'Div/0' errors are supposed to be there but not the VB error..

1.Yepp that is expected as there are hidden columns performing calcs....
2.Well I'm not exactly a VB guru, so that could be due to my buggy code, just click end (or debug if you happen to be a guru), I'll look into that in about 12 hours...

At this point the whole excel crashes due to some illegal operation (I suspect the recalc of the axis in the VB code).
Could be excel bug, but I had the chance to try it only on my Mac. I will try it on Win7 as well.

@madLyfe
Yes, the errors are likely to be caused by that, I will improve on that....


@petrmac
Sorry for crashing your excel. On my end it doesn't, but I'll try to improve the VB code. Would be interesting to see what happens on Win7. Runtime errors mostly occur with the y axis maximum, perhaps there is a way to only set the min and let excel do the max.
