Part 6. Working with Charts

Part 6. Working with Charts

You've already learned the fundamentals of creating a worksheet. Now you can concentrate on some of the other features that add to a data presentation. For example, you can create a chart based on data in a worksheet. Charts are very useful for interpreting data; however, different people look at data in different ways. To account for this, you can quickly change the appearance of charts in Excel by clicking directly on the chart. You can change titles, legend information, axis points, category names, and more.

The axes are the grid on which the data is plotted. On a 2D chart, the y-axis is the vertical axis on a chart (value axis), and the x-axis is the horizontal axis (category axis). A 3D chart has three axes (add a z-axis). You can control all the aspects of the axes—the appearance of the line, the tick marks, the number format used, and more.
