Including a Data Table with Your Chart

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated November 3, 2016)

Microsoft Graph allows you to include a data table with your chart. This data table appears right below the chart itself and presents the numerical information that is used to create the chart. If you would like to include a data table with your chart, follow these steps:

  1. Select Chart Options from the Chart menu. Microsoft Graph displays the Chart Options dialog box.
  2. Make sure the Data Table tab is selected. (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. The Data Table tab of the Chart Options dialog box

  4. Make sure the Show Data Table check box is selected. Notice the data table then appears in the sample displayed in the dialog box.
  5. Click on OK.
