Chapter 1: Creating a Chart
3. Select the kind of chart you want.
How you select a chart type depends on which program you’re working in:
Excel: On the Insert tab, open the drop-down list on one of buttons
in the Chart group (Column, Bar, and so on) and select a chart type;
or click the Recommended Charts button or Charts group button to
open the Insert Chart dialog box and select a chart there. As shown
in Figure 1-1, the Insert Chart dialog box shows all the kinds of charts
you can create. Go to the Recommended Charts tab to see which
charts Excel recommends.
Word and PowerPoint: Click the Chart button. You see the Insert
Chart dialog box shown in Figure 1-1. Select a chart type, select a
variation, and click OK. A data grid opens on the right side of your
computer screen. (In PowerPoint, you can also click the Chart icon
on a placeholder frame to open the Insert Chart dialog box.)
The next topic in this chapter, “Choosing the Right Chart,” describes all
the charts types and advises you which to choose.
