Creating Tables
and Charts
Chapter
10
Data is often grasped more quickly and with more understanding and
impact when it’s presented in a simple, organized, and visual way.
In PowerPoint, tables and charts are a couple of ways to effectively present
data, especially quantitative, complex, or tedious data. This chapter describes
the powerful options within PowerPoint to work with charts and tables.
You can create tables and charts from scratch within PowerPoint or import
them from Microsoft Word or Excel.
After you enter your data into a table or chart, PowerPoint provides the
ability to change virtually all the elements, from modifying a table’s font,
columns and rows, borders, and shading to adding effects. You can even
insert your favorite picture in a table cell. If you’ve created one of the many
types of charts, PowerPoint provides the ability to alter almost all the chart
objects by modifying a chart’s type, font, axis, grid, borders, shading, labels,
legend, and effects.
