Using the Chart Wizard for Quick Results

Expert users might be tempted to dismiss Excel's Chart Wizard as just another tool for beginners, to be avoided at all costs. Big mistake. Don't think of the Chart Wizard as a set of training wheels—instead, think of it as a highly structured, superbly organized interface that lets you efficiently deal with every chart option in four steps.

Tip

Each of the four steps in the Chart Wizard corresponds to one of four choices on the shortcut menu that appears when you right-click the plot area or chart area of any chart. If you want to change only the data source of a chart, it takes fewer clicks to use the shortcut menus than to restart the Chart Wizard.
