X. Charting basics Providing a graphical look at the data in your spreadsheet can often tell a story that’s not so obvious by just looking at numbers and text. The fastest way to create a chart in Excel is to highlight the data to chart and hit the F11 key. Excel creates its default column chart and puts it on a new page in your workbook. You can then go on to edit the chart as you like. If the data you want to chart isn’t contiguous, hold down the Control key as you select each data range. To create a chart and have more control over the process during creation (instead of creating and then editing), use Excel’s Chart Wizard. You can invoke the Chart Wizard with the menu commands Insert, Chart or by clicking the Chart Wizard button on the standard toolbar. The Chart Wizard divides chart creation into four steps and walks you through each one. In the first step you select the type of chart you want.
