    If your have over 200 records in your chart, it will quickly become unreadable. That is why we created a new Excel app called Yellohcharts. Our app enables you to visualize over 30.000 records in milliseconds, directly inside Excel. You can see the app in action on our website at www.yellohcharts.com and get all the details. Hope this helps.
