Overview

Excel is the most popular tool for number crunching on the PC, but the challenge is in putting a meaningful face on those raw numbers. That’s where Excel Charts For Dummies comes in. Ken Bluttman will show readers how to professionally display data in presentation-quality charts. But he’ll go beyond showing readers how to create attractive charts—he’ll explain why to use specific charts in particular circumstances. Lots of real-world examples will show “the good, the bad, and the ugly” of Excel charts. He will cover the whole range of charts in step-by-step tutorials—whether it’s pies, scatter plots, or PivotCharts. He’ll show how to embed graphics and pictures into charts; then use them in impressive PowerPoint presentations or Microsoft Word documents. He’ll also show how to use charts for statistical analysis—and how charts can skew the stats and deceive. This book will feature a 16-page full-color insert of the best Excel charts “works of art.”
