Select the data source with the range of data you want to chart Click Insert tab, in the Charts group click a chart type, and select a chart subtype in the Chart Gallery. On the Chart Tools Design tab, in the Location group, click Move Chart button to place the chart on its own worksheet
Each chart type will display data a specific way therefore its important to know which chart will display your information in a meaningful way.
Chart TypeDescription ColumnCompares values from different categories. Values are indicated by the height of the columns. LineCompares values from different categories. Values are indicated by the height of the line. Often used to show trends and changes over time. PieCompare relative values of different categories to the whole. Values are indicated by the areas of the pie slices. BarCompares values from different categories. Values are indicated by the length of the bars. AreaCompares values from different categories. Similar to the line chart except that areas under the line are filled with color. XY (Scatter)Shows the patterns r relationship between two or more sets of values. Often used in scientific studies and statistical analyses. StockDisplays stock market data, including the high, low, opening, and closing prices of a stock. SurfaceCompares three sets of values in a three dimensional chart. DoughnutCompares relative values of different categories to the whole. Similar to pie chart except that it can display multiple sets of data. BubbleShows the patterns or relationship between two or more sets of values. Similar to XY (Scatter) chart except the size of the data marker is determined by a third value. RadarCompares a collection of values from several different data sets.
One of the many benefits of using Microsoft Office suite is that the applications work nicely with one another. You can link an Excel chart from one workbook into PowerPoint presentation, Word document or another Excel workbook. Upon any changes in the source the chart will be updated.
