Creating charts in Excel has long been one of its most popular features. Numerical information can be boring, and some of us just don't read and absorb the meaning of such data until we see the information depicted in a chart. In Excel, you can create a chart with just a few keystrokes or mouse clicks, and can easily alter a chart's appearance by changing it from a line to a bar, pie, column or other numerous forms.
This session with expert speaker Dennis Taylor shows you quick ways to create charts, explores which chart types work best for different data, provides tips on when and how to add gridlines, change background colors and adjust scaling.
