Charts are a great way to present data in an easy-to-understand manner. If you're working on academic papers and business reports, you will almost certainly want to include a chart in your document.
Fortunately, it is easy to create a chart in Microsoft Word 2007. Simply follow these steps:
1. Position your cursor where you would like to insert the chart
2. Open the Insert ribbon
3. Click Chart in the Illustrations section
4. Select the style of chart you would like to insert
5. Click OK
The chart will appear in your document. Additionally, an Excel worksheet opens. You can enter your data in the worksheet. Use the handle to adjust the range of data that appears in the chart. It will automatically update the chart in Word.
Once your chart is created, you can use the tools in Word to change the chart style, layout and formatting options.
