Add a line chart to a presentation in PowerPoint
Use a line chart to compare data and show trends over time. When you need a line chart in a presentation, use PowerPoint to create it, if the data is relatively simple and won’t need frequent updates (otherwise, see Copy an Excel chart to another Office program). Here is how:
Click INSERT > Chart.
Click the chart type, and then, double-click the chart you want. For help deciding which chart is best for your data, see Available chart types.
In the spreadsheet that appears, replace the default data with your own information.
When you have finished, close the spreadsheet.
