Column Chart Excel






How to Use a Column Chart

Column charts are useful for showing data changes over a period of time or for illustrating comparisons among items. In column charts, categories are typically organized along the horizontal axis and values along the vertical axis.

To create a column chart, follow these steps:

Enter data in a spreadsheet.

Select the data.

Depending on the Excel version you’re using, select one of the following options:

Excel 2016: Click Insert > Insert Column or Bar Chart icon, and select a column chart option of your choice.

3-D Stacked Column
Excel 2013: Click Insert > Insert Column Chart icon, and select a column chart option of your choice.

3-D Stacked Column
Excel 2010 and Excel 2007: Click Insert > Column, and select a column chart option of your choice.

You can optionally format the chart a little further. See the list below for a few options:

Note: Make sure you click on the chart first before applying a formatting option.

To apply a different chart layout, click Design > Charts Layout, and select a layout.

To apply a different chart style, click Design > Chart Styles, and pick a style.

To apply a different shape style, click Format > Shape Styles, and pick a style.

Note: A chart style is different from a shape style. A shape style is a formatting option that applies to the chart’s border only, whereas the chart style is a formatting option that applies to the entire chart.

To apply different shape effects, click Format > Shape Effects, and pick an option such as Bevel or Glow, and then a sub option.

To apply a theme, click Page Layout > Themes, and select a theme.

To apply a formatting option to a specific component of a chart (such as Vertical (Value) Axis, Horizontal (Category) Axis, Chart Area, to name a few), click Format > pick a component in the Chart Elements dropdown box, click Format Selection, and make any necessary changes. Repeat the step for each component you want to modify.
