How do I change the matrix of the legend in an Excel chart? I have 1x6, and I want 3x2.

You can just select and resize the legend so that you get the dimensions you want. Hope that Helps

Well, to make it clearer, I have this in my legend:

Foon
Foon2
Foon3
Foon4
Foon5
Foon6

And I want this:

Foon1 Foon2 Foon3
Foon4 Foon5 Foon6

Yup - That's what I thought you meant. I just tried it myself to make sure I wasn't crazy. It'll work.

You will probably have to move things around to make everything fit nicely though.

Ahh. I see, now, JPD. Thanks! I have to make the whole chart box really, really big in order to have the program give me the layout I want. And then I have to shrink it, and then I have to enlarge the chart part and reduce the legend. Hmm. If there's a less tedious way, I'd still love to hear it.

I won't hold my breath. User friendly, my arse.
