Another fun addition to any chart is replacing your fill color with a piece of clip art. For example, we modified the fourth quarter data series by double-clicking on the data series and changing the light blue to a dark blue. Let's double-click on that data series again, and instead of simply modifying the color, let's access the Fill Effects. And here we can apply a gradient, that would look very good. You can see that gives it an almost 3-D effect without even being a 3-D chart. Or we'll double-click again, go into Fill Effects and you'll see the last tab is Picture. Well here you can select any bitmap or JPEG or you can select a clipart graphic. If you click Select Picture, you can browse to your Student Folders, and in Charts I've placed a money sign. Insert that and we'll say OK, OK, and there we go. Now you have a dollar sign instead of a fill color. You can adjust that further by double-clicking, Fill Effects, and here you can adjust the Stack scale. Let's take that down to... It's at 10,000 right now, let's take it down to 5000, say OK, and there you go. Now you have dollar signs representing your values instead of a solid bar.
