Why Should You Attend

Creating charts in Excel has long been one of its most popular features. Numerical information can be boring and some of us just don’t read and absorb the meaning of such data until we see the information depicted in a chart. 

You can create an Excel chart with just a few keystrokes or mouse clicks and can easily alter a chart’s appearance by changing its type into a line, bar, pie, or column chart as well as numerous other types.   

This webinar shows you quick ways to create charts, ex-plores which chart types work best for different data, gives you tips on when and how to add gridlines, change colors, adjust scaling, insert titles, re-size charts, insert ClipArt im-ages, insert trendlines, and how to add functionality, and pizzazz to your charts with simple formatting techniques. 

You will also learn to use sparklines (in-cell charts) that provide a visual complement to your data as well as dis-playing vital trend information. You will also get an over-view of the wealth of visual features in Excel, including text boxes, arrows, shapes, tables, and other tools that let you present information with increased clarity and visual ap-peal.
