Excel 2013

I had read about the fact that creating charts was now much easier in the new Excel version so today I decided to do something quite straightforward.

Then, I simply selected that data:

Clicked on “insert” and then the type of chart I was looking for:

WOW! Now of course, I’d need to change the title and perhaps a few details but overall, it’s very close to what I was looking for and took me about 30 seconds… This is certainly one of the more interesting aspects of Excel 2013.
