Working with Charts

PowerPoint charts let you communicate data graphically. Use charts in PowerPoint to help see the meaning behind the numbers.


  1. Open an existing PowerPoint presentation. If you want, you can use this example.
  2. Insert a new chart. If you are using the example, edit the data for the chart on slide 3 to delete the data from the months September through December.
  3. Change the chart layout.
  4. Apply a chart style. If the new style includes a chart title or any labels, edit them.
  5. Switch the row and column data.
