Chapter 3. Adding Art to Office Documents > Modifying a Graph Chart

Modifying a Graph Chart

Once you enter data in the datasheet, you can easily modify and format the associated chart. Graph Chart comes with a gallery that lets you change the chart type and then format the chart to get the result that you want. There are 14 chart categories, each containing both two-dimensional and three-dimensional charts. To suit your needs, you can also format chart objects, individual elements that make up a chart, such as an axis, legend, or data series.
