FIGURE 12.24
Use a data table to show the audience the numbers on which the chart is based.
Data table
To format the data table, choose More Data Table Options from the Data Table submenu in
Figure 12.24. In the Format Data Table task pane that appears, you can set data table border
options, as shown in Figure 12.25. For example, you can display or hide the horizontal, ver-
tical, and outline borders for the table from here.
Controlling the Axes
No, axes are not the tools that chop down trees. Axes is the plural of axis , and an axis is the
side of the chart containing the measurements against which your data is plotted.
You can change the various axes in a chart in several ways. For example, you can make an
axis run in a different direction (such as from top to bottom instead of bottom to top for a
vertical axis), and you can turn the text on or off for the axis and change the axis scale.
Displaying or Hiding an Axis
Most of the time you will want to display all axes for a chart. However, in some special
cases it may be appropriate to turn off an axis. To do so, click Chart Tools Design
Chart
Layouts
Axes and then click Primary Horizontal or Primary Vertical
to toggle either of those off (or back on again). See Figure 12.26.
