Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Exercise files, part of Excel 2013: Working with Charts and Graphs.
- If your lynda.com membership includes it, I put together a collection of exercise files. This is just some different data sets that you can use as we create charts and graphs, and you can follow along. Now, it's very easy for you to create this data yourself. I'm just trying to save you some time from having to key in data. But if you don't have access to those files, just grab a couple of spreadsheets or pull down some datasets from the Internet that you can use. All you're going to need here is information to process. It's pretty straight-forward. So download those files; it's a nice quick download, and get prepared to follow along.
If you've got your tablet or computer, open up Excel, and let's get started.
