Chapter 13. Charts and Graphs > Creating Charts

Creating Charts

Are you curious about how you can create a chart with one keystroke? It's preceded by a mouse operation, but it still takes only one keystroke to create a column chart with the default settings. For more complex charts and greater control of the options, you can use the Chart Wizard.

To create a default chart

1.
Select the data from which you want to create a chart (Figure 13.1).

Figure 13.1. Select the data to be charted. In this example (Charts from the Learn tab of the Project Gallery), hotel stays by guests are selected.


2.
Press to create the chart.

Unless you've changed the default chart type, a column chart appears in a new sheet (Figure 13.2).
