    ‘Creating Charts to Present Your Data’ Book Chapter

    Microsoft Excel charts can either be pretty boring or an enormous boost to your company’s reports, depending on the knowledge users have of the spreadsheet software’s charting features. This book chapter offers a visual guide to both basic and advance chart capabilities in Excel 2010.

    Microsoft Excel has long been the standard for spreadsheet software, but as is the case with so many business productivity tools, many users have no idea about how to use the tool to its fullest potential.

    In this book chapter, expert Guy Hart-Davis provides a highly visual walk-through of Excel 2010’s charting features, which can help turn a cumbersome report into a quick reference that really gets its point across. Each tactic is accompanied by a detailed screen breakdown as you can see on the right.

    Among the features Hart-Davis discusses are:

    • Changing the Scale or Numbering of an Axis
    • Adding Data Labels to a Chart
    • Formatting Individual Chart Elements
