Adding Trend Lines

A trend line is a line that describes the general tendency of a data series. It can be a moving average, a linear-regression line, or a line generated by one of various kinds of nonlinear curve-fitting methods.

To add a trend line to a series in an area, bar, column, line, or xy (scatter) chart, first select the series, and then choose Chart, Add Trendline. (This command appears only when a series is selected.) Excel displays the Add Trendline dialog box shown in Figure 26-12.
