know it.
The next three sections describe changes you can make in your chart. You
make some of these changes in the property sheet for the chart control; you
make others by clicking buttons on the various Microsoft Graph toolbars;
and you make still others by giving commands while Microsoft Graph is
running. (Don’t worry — we let you know when to do what.)
Formatting charts with colors, legends, and titles
The Chart Options dialog box, shown in Figure 3-18, enables you to change
the titles, axis labels, gridlines, legends, data labels (which appear on the
graph itself), and data table placement. To display it, first double-click the
chart control in the Design View window to get Microsoft Graph up and
running; then choose Chart Chart Options.
Here are some other ways that you can format your graph when Microsoft
Graph is running (that is, when the chart control has a hatched border):
Background color: Click part of the graph, click the down arrow on the
Fill Color button on the standard toolbar, and choose a color from the
drop-down menu. Alternatively, you can right-click the plot area (the
graph itself) or a blank part of the chart and choose Format Chart/Plot
Area from the contextual menu.
