- [Voiceover] We've created our BurnUp report so far.…We want to add and enhance that report…by adding some additional functions into it.…Since we're not really interested in this…detail level task item here,…we'll collapse that task once…and bring that up to a higher level.…We're also interested in renaming that particular data sheet…so we're going to right-click on it…and rename that to data.…Now, we want to insert a graph…of this particular report,…so we'll going to select the whole chart…and we're going to go to the insert ribbon…and select under the 2-D options…we'll select the 2-D line chart.…
Now I would like this to be a whole page,…so we're going to Ctrl-X, or cut that…and we'll add a new sheet and paste that in.…Now that we've added in our new graph,…we've connected the two items together.…Our data sheet and our chart,…so we're going to right-click on the sheet number one now…and rename that to our chart.…So we've created our first step into our BurnUp report…which is a lot more enhanced than out of the box.…
