Working with Charts

Charts are a great way to organize, simplify, categorize, and present data. Most of us can comprehend facts better if they are presented visually or in a graphical way. You might scratch your head when you try to analyze a worksheet full of numbers, but looking at a well-designed chart makes you say “A-ha” because the data is logically grouped or summarized. Although you might have worked with charts of all types, it’s helpful to understand the terminology that Excel uses to identify the items that a chart comprises. Figure 3-12 shows a sample Excel chart. An explanation of the different parts of the chart follows.
