Chart Components

Why do you need to learn about charts?
  • Why might you use a chart to present spreadsheet
    information?

Is it a chart or a graph?
  • A graph is a feature of a chart used to plot
    data.
  • The chart is the total package that includes the
    title, value labels, and legend.

Examples of business uses of charts
  • To represent sales trends within the different
    departments of a store.
  • To represent the contribution of individual
    employee sales to the total sales for a company.
  • To represent the percent of each expense to total
    expenses.
  • To explain stock price fluctuations to stock
    holders.

Data Series
  • A collection of related values from the
    worksheet one row/column on the spreadsheet.

8
Gridline
  • Horizontal or vertical line that extends across
    the plot area of the graph to make it easier to
    read and understand the values.

    values axes.

    sheet as the worksheet it represents.
  • A separate chart is one that does not appear on
    the same sheet as the worksheet it represents.

Linked Chart
  • A linked chart is one that will change to reflect
    changes made to the spreadsheet it represents.
