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.
