    Learning Outcomes

    • Modify chart style.

    Once you have created a chart, or if you are given a worksheet that contains a chart, it is very easy to change the chart style.

    1. Click on the chart you wish to change. The Design tab should appear in the ribbon area.
    2. Click on Change Chart Type button
    1. Click on the type of chart you would like.
    A change chart type dialog box is open with a line chart selected.

    From this same window, you can also switch the data that is being charted. For example, you can switch which data from a row to a column or change which data is arranged on the x- or y-axis.

    An excel sheet with data entered in columns A and B through row 13. To the right of column B there is a clustered graph open representing the data in cells A1 through B13. A green arrow is pointing to a green box which is showing options on how to adjust the chart.
