Charts and graphs help people make sense of data and understand it quickly. Charts can be used to summarize, to make a comparison, show a relationship, highlight a trend, and more. They help your audience 'see' what you are talking about. In Excel and PowerPoint, it is easy to transform figures and labels into a picture that makes a clear, simple statement. This introductory workshop will show you how to convert your data into an easy-to-understand chart. We will discuss chart best practices and how to link to your data so the chart automatically updates when your data changes. This session will incorporate instructor-led demonstration and hands-on guided practice.
At the completion of the workshop, participants will be able to create and format a chart in Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint from raw data and modify existing charts.
People wanting to create a chart from existing data in Microsoft Excel or PowerPoint.
