Inserting Datasheet Rows or Columns

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated February 7, 2015)

The graphs 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. If you want to insert a row or column in the datasheet, follow these steps:

  1. In the datasheet, select the row or column before which you want a row or column inserted. Do this by clicking on the control cell for the row or column. The control cell is the leftmost cell for rows or topmost cell for columns.
  2. Choose Cells from the Insert menu.
