This course walks you through setting up Excel charts so they update automatically as data in entered into the worksheet. In addition, to discussing self-expanding charts, it also covers how to specify the number of data points to display in a chart. For example, you may only want the last rolling six months of data to display, in the chart, as you add new data each month. Linking a chart title to a cell and creating a spinner control is also discussed. This eBook walks you through the process step by step and then includes practice exercise for each topic as well as answer files.
