Making Excel Charts Even Easier

Posted on August 31, 2008. Filed under: Main, Microsoft, Software, Tech Tips |

If you’re like me, you crunch numbers.  It may be sales, inventory, finances, or any number of things.  You probably use Microsoft Excel; maybe you even need a chart now and then but avoid it because it’s just a bit too crazy. 

If this describes you (even a little), check out the Chart Advisor from Office Labs.  These folks have been putting out some good Add-Ins that run within various Office programs.  This one evaluates your data, creates a chart, and automatically puts it in your spreadsheet.  I’ve tried it and am immensely impressed with it.

Here’s the official description:

Chart Advisor is a prototype that provides an alternate approach for creating charts in Excel 2007. This add-in uses an advanced rules engine to scan your data and, based on predefined rules, displays charts according to score. Top scoring charts are available for you to preview, tweak, and insert into your Excel worksheet.
