Using Trendlines

Spotting trends is a major use of charts and data. Trendlines extend your actual data forward to predict where future data points may fall. You can also test your data and analysis by extending the data backward and comparing it against actual, older figures.

Trendlines can be used in various chart types: unstacked area, bar, column, line, stock, XY (scatter), and bubble charts. However, you cannot add trendlines to a 3D, stacked, radar, pie, or doughnut chart. If you have trendlines in place and you convert your chart to one that does not support trendlines, the trendlines disappear.
