Create Charts and Graphs from Raw Data

Put a friendly face on your data before turning it into PDF.

Instead of chilling readers with tables of raw data, invite them to understand your numbers by displaying them in charts or graphs. Popular word processors can create charts for you, or you can use free software to create graphs.

Microsoft Word 2002, Word 2000, and Word:Mac v.X

Select and copy your table data. In Word, select Insert Picture Chart and a little spreadsheet opens. The first row and first column of this Datasheet are reserved for your data’s row and column headings. Select the upper-left cell and paste your table’s data. The chart will change to reflect your data. Activate/deactivate rows and columns by double-clicking the Datasheet’s row and column labels.
