Chapter 29. Graphing Data

  • Create charts

    Word supports a number of methods for getting the data used to create a chart. Once the data is created, select a chart type or custom-design a chart type.

  • Edit charts

    You can replace or edit existing data, insert and delete rows and columns, and include or exclude data.

  • Add items, such as legends and titles, to a chart

    You can add titles, axes, gridlines, legends, data labels, and the data table to a chart.

  • Change the chart type

    You can use the two or more subtypes that each standard chart type contains. You can also select from a list of custom built-in chart types or define your own.

  • Change the size of a chart

    You can change the size of a chart by moving the black handles that appear around the chart after selecting it.

  • Format datasheets

    You can select different number and date formats to use in your datasheets.

With Microsoft Graph, you can create informative and impressive charts for your Word documents. You can turn an overwhelming table of numbers into a chart that shows important trends and changes. You can relegate the detailed numeric table to a location where it doesn't slow down communication. Microsoft Graph is not just a small charting "applet;" it is the same charting application used by Microsoft Excel, the most capable Windows spreadsheet/graphics program.
