Join Chris Grover for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding charts, part of Learning Word 2010.
When you're trying to show the story behind some numbers, there's nothing…better than a chart or a graph. Now, Word borrows some of the features…from its number-crunching sibling Excel to bring charting power to the page.…We've got a document like this memo, and you want to insert a chart into it, you…can put your cursor in place, go up here to the Insert tab, and then in the…Illustrations group choose Chart. If I click on that, this window opens up…and it shows me lots of different types of charts.…
So here we've got your Column chart, one of the most common charts that you'd use,…and Line charts, Pie charts, Bar charts, and you can go through here and chose…specific groups. We've got Area charts, Surface charts,…Donut charts, some of them are 3D layout. So, you got quite a bit of variety here…and the trick is to choose the ones that match your numbers and tell the story…that you want to tell. I'm going to choose this Column chart…that is 2D just for simplicity's sake, and I click OK.…
And that brings up a spreadsheet where I can enter my data.…
