Charts Are Commonly Used in PowerPoint Slides
One of the most commonly used features shown on PowerPoint slides are charts. There are many different chart types available to reflect your particular type of content.
Clicking the Chart icon on any content type of slide in PowerPoint opens the Insert Chart dialog box. Here you will select the best type of chart type to reflect your data. Once you have chosen the chart type, Microsoft Excel 2007 will open as well. A split window will show the chart in one window and the Excel window will show sample data for the chart. Making changes to the data in the Excel window, will reflect those changes in your chart.
