8.3. Adding and Modifying Data on an Excel Chart

Let us take-a-look at how you can manipulate the data-source of your charts you may recall when I first created this chart that is open in front of us right now. I started out by selecting my data I selected from A3 down to D8 and I then I went to insert, and I inserted a clustered column chart. Now there may come a time when you decide that you know what I do not want all three months or maybe I want to add the totals into my chart as well. We need to change the source, Microsoft has made this super simple. Very little steps in order for us to manipulate the chart, You do not have to delete the chart to recreate it. Make one little change and you update the data source.

So, right-now my chart is three months. But you know what I like the three months and I have got to broken up by the Bills, but I do not need March yet, All I need is January and February.

I am going to go back up to the date up above actually before that I am going to make sure my chart is selected, just clicking someplace empty on the chart it is selected. Now I am going to go up to the data. This is pretty slick. You will find some color coded areas within your data-source, You will see this little orange area that certainly my bills this little purple area grabbed my months And blue area that is grabbing the data source itself all the numeric values.

Now what I am going to do is grab the lower right corner and you get to that it is going to move out of the way Actually it is move that is just covering it up a little bit. So, I grab my chart again got back up there grabbed that lower right corner and I am just going to pull it in Just left click and drag.

Adding and Modifying Data on an Excel Chart 1

I have now limited in March and I have just got January and February data.

Simple little change. And look what that did for my values it is much cleaner because I do not have that much of a scale anymore in there.

Simple change Select the chart pop back up and just manipulate the data source of your chart.

Try it out. Select your charts. Hop back kept your data-source, find those color-coded areas and just click and drag to rearrange the data source within your chart. Cannot be any simpler than that.
