INTRODUCTION

If you are an experienced Microsoft Excel user, you can add a new Excel chart and worksheet to your slide and enter your own chart data. When you activate this feature, a single worksheet and a chart sheet display on your slide. The toolbars also include Excel tools, such as the AutoSum and Paste Function tools, which you can use to create formulas and format the worksheet cells.


TIP

Zooming

You might need to zoom your view of the chart to better see the data you want to enter. See Part 1 to learn more about zooming in or out to see slides.


Enter your chart data.

Click the Chart1 tab to view the data as a chart.

To change the chart type, click the Chart Type button in the Chart toolbar and select a type from the options that appear.

The new chart type is applied. Click anywhere outside the chart to deselect the chart.
