Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a chart, part of Excel 2013: Working with Charts and Graphs.
- Let’s jump right in and create a chart from scratch.…To do this, you’ll need to have a set of data…inside of a spreadsheet.…For now, I’ve opened up a document that already has…the information laid out in a table.…We’ll talk more about raw data in tables later.…What I’m going to do here is turn this into a chart.…Now it’s pretty straightforward,…I recommend that you highlight the data that you want to use…and then choose INSERT, Charts.…
Now you’ll note that there’s lots of different…types of charts here.…I’m going to start and go with a simple Column Chart.…If I click the pop-up here,…you’ll see that there’s both 2-D and 3-D styles.…And as you mouse over they’ll adjust.…Now depending upon the way the information is presented,…some of these are appropriate, and some aren’t.…In this case I’m going to go with a simple view here…and stick with a 2-D Column.…When I choose this chart type,…you see that it’s added to the document…and I can move that and position it on the screen.…
