Excel 2013 line charts are a great way to show and compare trends. As I go through a couple of line chart examples in Excel Video 461, watch for shortcuts to quickly switch the rows and legends of a chart with one click using the Switch Row/Column button. You’ll see a review of line charts compared to area charts and column charts, and a quick shortcut to change the range of data in your chart. Don’t worry if the shortcut was too fast. I’ll have more videos about changing chart ranges in the future. Also watch for how Chart Styles can make a simple line chart more interesting. You can certainly overdo Chart Styles, but it’s easy to get ideas to improve your chart’s appearance.
Stay tuned. We’ll talk about the pros and cons of pie charts in the next Excel Video. Thanks for watching.
