To create a chart quickly, you can use the default settings in Excel. You can also select specific cells of data from the worksheet to include in the chart. Press and hold the key when selecting multiple items.
Select cells A1 through A6. Press and hold the key, and then select cells D1 through D6. You should have two nonadjacent areas of shaded selected cells.
On the Insert menu, click Chart. In the Chart dialog box, click Finish.
On the Chart Area, right-click, and then click Source Data. Click Rows, and then click OK.
At the lower right corner of the chart object, drag the sizing handle to size the chart larger to the right and down a bit, making it larger and easier to read. Click in the Chart Area and Move the chart to the left side of the screen, under the cells.
Save your file. Leave your Excel file open for use later.
