Charting Away in Excel

Making a chart in excel can be really easy.  The computer does most of the work for you. You do have type in the data though. In the example below we typed in a simple table of data concerning text books and their weight in pounds.

To chart the data simply highlight all the data and then click the Chart Wizard button on the toolbar. The Chart Wizard will take you through several simple windows that will help you get the chart of your dreams.

The Chart Wizard will take you through a 4 step process:

You start by choosing the chart you want.  Then you confirm that the chart contains the correct data.  Then you add more detail like the titles and legend.  Finally you choose where to place your finished chart:

If you select "As new sheet" your chart will appear on its own page.  If you select "As object in" it will appear in the worksheet where the data is.

When you're done click "Finish" to see you chart:
