Data visualizations in Excel reveal the insights uncovered by your data in easy-to-consume representations. You can identify categorical values, recognize how parts sum up to a whole, see percentages rather than absolute values, discretize continuous variables, and approximate the probability density function of variables. In this course, you'll build charts to uncover all of this information. You'll start by working with column and bar charts. You'll then create and differentiate between clustered and stacked column charts. You'll move on to formatting and customizing bar and column charts before working with 2D and 3D chart types and customizing them in various ways. Lastly, you'll work with histograms, examining how they work, what they're used for, and how to customize them to your needs.
