In this course, Dennis Taylor shows how to analyze and communicate the value of data with charts in Excel. The course starts with the foundations: what the parts of a chart are, what the different types of charts are, and which charts work best for your data. The course then shows how to create a presentation-ready chart in minutes and offers dozens of in-depth tutorials on formatting and fine-tuning charts so they represent data clearly and accurately.
Hi! I'm Dennis Taylor, and welcome to Excel 2007: Charts in Depth. Creating charts is one of Excel's most powerful yet easy-to-use features. You'll see huge improvements in the visual quality of charts, and have a vast array of color and design choices not available in older versions of Excel. In this course, we'll be looking at the concepts underlying charts and give you the tools to implement those concepts. I'll show you how to create standard, useful charts very quickly, and then how to fine-tune those charts with a variety of tools and features.
We'll see how to give greater impact to your charts with pictures and shapes and then examine the most effective use of titles, labels, legends, axes, and gridlines. We'll look at analytic tools that help you make sense of the chart's data. If you're not using charts then you're missing out one of the most popular and easy-to-use features of Excel. So join me in Excel 2007: Charts in Depth.
