Excel charts are often used to visualize data in a graphical way. They are often cited as being more effective than using traditional tables for this purpose. The chart feature helps you understand the data better by showing the relationships between different variables, without the need of having to write any formulas or calculations. A chart is a visual representation of numerical information represented as columns, lines, bars, or a combination thereof. In Microsoft Excel, a chart is a graphic display of data using one or more visuals such as a line graph or bar graph to represent sets of data. There are six primary types of charts available for use in Microsoft Excel: Bar Chart, Line Graph, Pie Chart, XY Scatter Plot with XY Graph Grid Lines and XY Scatter Plot with X/Y-Axis Grid Lines.

Charting allows you to summarize large quantities of data into charts that are easy to read and analyze. It can be used on any type of spreadsheet, including Excel spreadsheets. Charts help you analyze the information on your spreadsheet more quickly and easily than using formulas.
