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.

About the practice session

When you click Practice in Excel, a practice worksheet will download to your computer and open in Excel, and a separate window with practice instructions will appear alongside (see picture).

Note     You need to have Excel 2003 installed on your computer.

Tips

  • If the practice instructions aren't visible, or if they disappear when you click in Excel, click the Excel Help taskbar button and then click the Auto Tile button in the upper-left corner of the instructions.
  • If the practice instructions cover up Excel, click the Auto Tile button in the upper-left corner of the instructions.
