Creating a Chart

Charting data in Excel does not require you to return to the days of graph paper and rulers. You don’t need to draw axes, plot points, or even connect the dots. Excel provides advanced tools that transform your data into any chart type you can imagine. You simply drag over the data you want to chart, run the Chart Wizard, pick a chart type, and enter any additional preferences. (See “Making Data Graphical with Charts,” in Chapter 1, “Understanding Excel Worksheets (Spreadsheets),” for descriptions of the most common chart types.)

The following sections show you how to create charts with Excel’s Chart Wizard and how to use the Chart toolbar to modify the chart and enhance its appearance.
