How to make graphs from excel

Posted on

In this tutorial, we will show you how to make graphs from data in Excel. You will learn how to insert a graph into a worksheet, how to create axes and titles, and how to format the graph. If you want to improve your data analysis skills, this is a tutorial for you!

What is Excel?

Excel is a computer program that can be used to create graphs, tables, and charts. It can be used for a wide range of tasks, including financial analysis, data entry, and marketing research.

How to Make a Graph in Excel

There are a few ways to make graphs in Excel. One way is to use the graph function. This function can be found under the Analysis Tools tab, and it allows you to create graphs of data. The graph function takes two arguments: the data that you want to plot, and the type of graph that you want to create.

You can create a simple graph by using the graph function. To do this, first specify the data that you want to plot. In this example, I am plotting the sales figures for different products. Next, specify the type of graph that you want to create. In this example, I am creating a bar graph. Finally, set some properties of the graph. In this example, I am setting the title and height of the bars.

You can also use Excel’s charting tools to create more complex graphs. For example, you can use bar charts, line charts, pie charts, and histograms. You can find more information about these tools in Excel’s help file (click on Help > Get Help).

Graph Types in Excel

Graphs are an essential tool for data analysis, and Excel makes creating them easy. In this article, we’ll show you how to create different types of graphs in Excel, including bar graphs, line graphs, scatter plots, and trend lines.

How to Export Your Graphs

Making graphs from data in Excel is an easy way to visualize your data and see relationships between different pieces of information. There are a few different ways to export your graphs, so choose the one that best suits your needs.

One option is to use the Export Graphs button in the Data ribbon. This will create a PDF or PNG file with your graph embedded within it. You can also use this button to export your graphs as images only, without the accompanying text or data.

Another option is to use the Export As Graph tool on the Data tab in Excel 2010 or later. This will create an image file with your graph embedded within it. You can also specify which axes should be plotted on the graph, and what type of font should be used for labels and titles.

Last, you can export your graphs as XML files. This format is compatible with most charting software, so you can easily share your graphs with others.

whichever option you choose, be sure to save your graphs in a location that is easy to access. You can also use the saved files to create a graph gallery, which will make it easy to compare and contrast different graphs.
