INTRODUCTION

By default, PowerPoint creates a column chart when you use the charting feature. You can, however, change the chart to another chart type, such as a pie chart or a line chart.


TIP

The chart type you use depends on how you want to present the data. Use column, bar, and line charts to illustrate changes in values over time. Use pie charts to give percentage data a visual appearance.
