Charts can convey much more than numbers alone can because charts present data in a visual way that makes it easier to see the meaning behind the numbers. And with the new charting capabilities in Microsoft Office Excel 2007, it's easier than ever to turn raw data into meaningful information.
Charts start with data. In Office Excel 2007, you just select data in your worksheet, choose a chart type that best suits your purpose, and click. Want to try a different chart type? Just click again and select a new chart type from a huge range of possibilities. Then work with the new Chart Tools to customize the design, layout, and formatting of your chart. You can see how various options would look just by pointing at them in the dialog box — you don't have to spend time applying different selections to find the look you want. And when your chart is exactly the way you want it, you can save it as a template to use again, in Excel or in other 2007 Office system programs such as Word 2007.
Watch the demo to see how quickly and easily you can go from raw numbers to a powerful visual aid.
