Chapter 11. Working with Charts > Understanding Charts in PowerPoint

Understanding Charts in PowerPoint

You can use Microsoft Graph to create charts in your presentation, or you can insert charts created in another application, such as Excel. Using Microsoft Graph inside PowerPoint is the easiest way to create a graph, but doesn't offer any calculation or formula capabilities for your chart data. If you've already created a chart in Excel or you need to analyze complex data, it's best to insert an Excel chart.

NOTE

For the sake of consistency, we use the term chart throughout this chapter to match PowerPoint's interface—even though the application you use to create charts is called Microsoft Graph. Essentially, chart and graph are synonyms for any kind of graphical representation of numeric information.
