Numbers can be boring when they’re piled on top of each other.
You can easily make a chart, though, if you put those numbers in Excel.
Here are the basic steps.
When you’ve gathered some comparison data, copy-paste it into a new tab in your spreadsheet.
Remove any columns or rows that are not relevant, and make sure the column headings are worded in a way that readers and viewers can understand easily.
Go to the “Insert” tab.
Select the group of cells that contain the cleaned-up data.
In the Chart section of the Insert tab, choose a format and click on it.
The chart will appear in the body of the spreadsheet. The Design tab will open with options related to charts.
If you don’t like how your chart looks, you can “Change Chart Type” on the Type section of the Design tab. You can also change the color scheme and layout under Chart Styles and Chart Layout.
Fix the wording of text areas by clicking on them. You can also change fonts and type sizes, or delete text areas.
