Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a table, part of Excel 2013: Working with Charts and Graphs.
- Throughout our lessons so far,…you've seen me work with tables a bit.…I've converted raw data into a table…to make it easier to sort that data,…as well as format the columns.…Why don't we dig a bit deeper into how tables work,…and what the options are that are available.…Let's take a look at an existing table for a moment.…I've opened up a spreadsheet…that's similar to some of the ones we worked with earlier…when making graphs.…And one of the things I like about tables…is the ability to quickly select all the data.…
Just click inside the table and press Ctrl+A,…and you'll see it selects everything.…This makes it very easy…when you wanted to work with the charts,…and put those in,…and show the different types of data.…In this case, a quick comparison…between the sales for the two products.…Now let's go ahead and cancel for a second,…and build one from scratch.…No need to save these changes,…but I'll open up this budget.…Alright, you see here I've got some cost items,…and we just want to put together a budget…for a trip we're planning for the office.…
