Microsoft Word - Transform A Table Into An Eye-Popping Chart (Word 2000)


Although tables are effective tools for organizing and presenting numerical data, it's easy to get lost in the sea of numbers they store. To make numerical data easier to digest at a glance, you can quickly transform your table into a chart. To do so:


  1. Place the insertion point anywhere within the table, and then choose Table | Select | Table from the menu bar to select it
  2. Choose Insert | Picture | Chart from the menu bar
  3. When you do, the Microsoft Graph Chart mini application launches and creates a new chart and datasheet based on the table data you selected earlier
  4. You can now customize the chart as desired. When you've finished, click outside the chart object to return to your document
