Another in our regular series of software tips from Continuing Education lecturer Peter Talent.
Basic steps for creating a chart in Excel
Select the data that you want to use in the chart.
Make sure that you select the column headers, if the data has them. Another option is to select a single cell within a range of data. Excel then uses the entire data range for the chart.
Step 1 Click the Insert tab, and then click the Chart icon in the Charts group.
The icon expands into a gallery list that shows subtypes. Click a Chart subtype, and Excel then creates the chart of your choice.
Happy charting!!!! With Excel
