Excel Charts for DummiesBook - 2005
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."
