Excel Training: How To Use Excel Charts
Excel Charts allows users to store, model, and manipulate data.
Once data is stored in an Excel spreadsheet, anyone with access to that spreadsheet can manipulate the data in order to analyze and communicate its meaning. The charting function can be a key element in these processes, enabling users to strike a balance between automation and customization.
If a spreadsheet already contains updated data, the chart function can transform this data into a chart with a minimal amount of user input. The Recommended Charts tool in Excel is a key part of this process. Using the chart function, spreadsheet administrators can generate a chart in a few clicks, choosing a chart type, as well as options such as labels, axes and titles.
Users can also customize their charts. For instance, in addition to customizing the data presented within a chart, users can finely tweak the chart options to any detail. Charts in Excel can also be altered after they have been initially generated, by selecting a chart and choosing from the available options to amend the chart type, data, or other details.
In this session, Excel expert David H. Ringstrom, CPA - who is also the Tech Editor-at-Large for AccountingWEB - shares numerous techniques that you can use to work with charts more efficiently. David will teach primarily from Excel 2010, but will also demonstrate new charting capabilities in Excel 2013.
Excel's charting functionality has evolved with each version of Excel, so a special feature of this presentation is that David provides four different handouts to cover Excel 2013, Excel 2010, Excel 2007, and Excel 2003. As you watch him carry out techniques in Excel 2010 or 2013, you'll be able to follow the numbered steps in the handout that corresponds with your version of Excel.
