Select a different chart type

For most 2-D charts, you can change the chart type of either a data series or the entire chart. For xy (scatter) and bubble charts, you can change only the type of the entire chart. For most 3-D charts, changing the chart type affects the entire chart. For 3-D bar and column charts, you can change a data series to the cone, cylinder, or pyramid chart type.

  1. Do one of the following:

    To change the chart type of the entire chart, click the chart.

    To change the chart type of a data series, click the data series.

  2. On the Chart menu, click Chart Type.

  3. On the Standard Types or Custom Types tab, click the chart type you want.

    To apply the cone, cylinder, or pyramid chart type to a 3-D bar or column data series, click Cylinder, Cone, or Pyramid in the Chart type box on the Standard Types tab, and then select the Apply to selection check box.

Note: If you clear the Apply to selection check box, Microsoft Graph changes the chart type for the entire chart even if a single data series is selected.
