A bar chart is a popular basic data visualization. This visualization displays each data value as a filled rectangle growing off the Y axis. The length of the bar is proportionate to the value.
- Click [Series Data...] to select the value series (y-axis) columns
- Click [Label Data...] to select the label (x-axis) columns
With more than one series, select between “stack” (which cumulatively places the series one next to other), “cluster” (which draws them side-by-side), and “fill” (which stacks them, and forces them to sum to 100% of value).
(This is the same as a column chart, but turned on its side.)
