Add a Chart

Reader rating: 3 out of 10


If you want to insert a chart or graph into your presentation, PowerPoint makes this easy.

Add a Chart

1. Click the Insert menu and select Chart... from the menu that appears.

2. Enter the information you want in the graph in the mini-spreadsheet that appears. (Enter data similar to the way it is presented in the example that automatically appears.)

3. Close the mini-spreadsheet (datasheet) window by clicking the "x" in the corner of its window.

4. Click anywhere on the slide (other than the graph), so PowerPoint returns to normal mode.

5. Your graph is now created, and you can drag this graph to wherever you want it on the slide.

Tip: You can also resize the graph to the size you want it to be.
