...for great results
Create a Basic Chart
1.Select the data (sequential or nonsequential) you want to plot in the chart. See Figure 11–1 for an example of sequential data selected for a chart.
2.Press the F11 key. Excel immediately adds a new sheet called Chart 1 to your workbook with the data plotted into a column chart. Figure 11–2 shows you the various elements that can make up a chart
Some newer keyboards use a different function for the F11 key. If your F11 key does not produce a chart, use the Insert tab as explained in the next section.
- Title: A descriptive name for the overall chart. By default, titles are not added in a basic chart.
- X or Category axis: Column or row headings from your selected data, which Excel uses for Category axis names.
- X Axis Title: A descriptive name for the Category axis. By default, a category label is not added in a basic chart.

None of the books were perfect in my eyes. Some were too brief, leaving things that I wanted to know unanswered, while some were more technical than I wanted. Others, I found, were so filled with brightly coloured Hints and Tips on every page that I found it hard to concentrate on the main text without distraction; one such book had a series of little dashes and the chapter number up the side of every page, while the page number that you were looking for was half hidden in a coloured bar across the foot of the page.
My ultimate choice was Just The Steps because it was the only title that answered all of my queries in only 234 pages. Everything is explained in a clear and easy to follow manner, and the index is fairly comprehensive. Regard it as being like any For Dummies book but without the light hearted and entertaining read.
Having said that, the book does seem to skip through the basics of creating a worksheet, and I am particularly concerned to find no mention of inserting rows or columns, which I have seen covered in other books. Maybe the information is there and I haven't spotted it yet, but I now worry if there is anything else that has not been included.
Finally, one thing that does let the book down is the illustrations of screen shots, which are on nearly every page. Without exception these gray pictures are too small to be of much use. If you can live with that, as I can, then this is a book well worth considering.
