Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Inserting a chart, part of PowerPoint for Mac 2011 Essential Training.
Sometimes data is easier to understand, to compare data or spot trends, for…example, when that data is in a graphical form, also known as a chart.…And here in PowerPoint 2011, you have the same charting engine available to…you in Microsoft Excel. It's shared.…So you have the full power to create some very impressive charts.…We are going to do that right now with our TwoTreesTale presentation, and we are…going to do it between slides 13 and 14.…So you can click slide 13 or click between 13 and 14; whatever you prefer.…
Click New Slide and the new default slide format, which is Title, and content…is inserted for you.…Let's start with the title.…We'll just click up there, and let's say we want to compare a few flavors, the…sales of those flavors, who's buying what.…So we'll call this Favorite Flavors.…And we are going to highlight the top three.…All right, so down below now where it says Click to add text, we'll also have…those content icons, and one of them is the Insert Chart icon.…All this is going to do, when we click it, is move us to the Charts tab on the Ribbon.…
