In this practice session you'll create a chart that says something different, by charting the worksheet columns instead of the rows. You'll also place a chart on a separate sheet instead of putting it on the worksheet with the data. You'll explore some of the different options you can select in the Chart Wizard. And finally—you'll make a pie chart.
