Chapter 16. Creating Basic Charts

As you become more skilled with Excel, you’ll realize that entering numbers, organizing your layout, and formatting cells aren’t the most important parts of spreadsheet creation. Instead, the real work lies in analyzing your data—in other words, figuring out a way to tell the story that lies behind your numbers. Excel’s charting tools may be just what you need.

Charts depict data visually, so you can quickly spot overall trends. They’re a fabulous way to help you find the meaning hidden in large amounts of data. In Excel, for example, you can create many different types of charts, including pie charts that present polling results, line charts that plot rising or declining assets over time, and three-dimensional area charts that show relationships between environmental conditions in a scientific experiment.
