The charts created by Microsoft Graph are based on data contained in a simple spreadsheet called a datasheet. Microsoft Graph displays this data in row-and-column format. At the top of each column and the left side of each row is a control cell. Control cells are used primarily to select the column or row.
The control cell for a row is used to indicate whether information it contains is included in the chart. If the control cell includes an icon (besides the row number), the information in the row or column is included; no icon means it is not included. You can tell whether information in a particular column is included in the chart by whether there is a letter of the alphabet (A, B, C, etc.) in the control cell for the column.
