Excel Charts

Creating charts is an essential task when presenting data in Wellington.  Charts help to communicate your information clearly and concisely.  It also adds a visual appeal to the document.

Charts help to illustrate data in a way that is easier to read and understand.

Charts help to make quick comparisons and track trends.  Excel 2010 makes creating a chart a simple task.  Before you can create a chart, you will need to have data incorporated onto the worksheet.  You should format your data so the chart tool can process it correctly

There are six major parts to a chart.

Knowing the different parts will help you understand what information you will need in your data set to make the chart relevant to your audience.  Here are the major parts:

  • Horizontal Axis: This part of the chart is the bottom section or line of the chart.  This is usually the category of the data for example.  It could represent years, product, sales person, department, etc.  Typically, there are no values in this area of the chart.
  • Vertical Axis: This is the part of the chart is the left side or vertical line of the chart.  This part of the chart usually contains the values as it relates to the horizontal categories.  It could represent units, money, percentages, etc.
  • Legend: Explains what each plotted data set represents.  For example, it could distinguish that each bar represents in a column chart or what each piece of the pie represent on a pie chart.
  • Chart Area: This is the area outside of the plot area.  This area can be changed to have different colours and looks.
  • Plot Area: This area contains the data in an illustrative format like columns, pie pieces, etc.  The plot area could contain grid lines or not.
  • Series: This is a set of similar data grouped by category.  For example, sales could represent one series and cost another.
  • Chart Title: This is usually located above the graph and it usually is a summary of what the data represents like projections, or quality report.
