Introduction
When you’re ready to share data with others, a worksheet might not be the most effective
way to present the information. A page full of numbers, even if attractively formatted, can
be hard to understand and perhaps a little boring. Microsoft Excel makes it easy to create
and modify charts so that you can effectively present your information. A chart is a visual
representation of selected data in your worksheet. Whether you turn numbers into a bar,
line, pie, surface, or bubble chart, patterns become more apparent. For example, the trend
of annual rising profits becomes powerful in a line chart. A second line showing dimin-
ishing annual expenses creates an instant map of the success of a business.
A well-designed chart draws the reader’s attention to important data by illustrating
trends and highlighting significant relationships between numbers. Excel generates charts
based on data and chart type you select. If you’re not sure which chart to use, you can use
a chart recommended by Excel. Excel makes it easy to select the best chart type, design
elements, and formatting enhancements for any type of information.
Once you create a chart, you may want to change your chart type to see how your data
displays in a different style. You can move and resize your chart, and even draw on your
chart to highlight achievements. Other formatting elements are available to assure a well-
designed chart.
