Chapter 17. Using Graphs to Make Sense o... > Creating a Chart from Scratch

Creating a Chart from Scratch

You don't have to have an existing table in your document to build a chart. You don't even need a pre-existing data source. You can open Graph by using a set of dummy (fake) data that Word generates and then replace that data with your real data.

To do so, place your insertion point where you want the chart to appear. Then choose Insert, Picture, Chart. Word's default chart uses dummy values to create a two-series 3D column chart.
