Tech Tips at North Branch: Charting in Excel, in Depth


Saturdays, July 26 & August 2, 8:30 am, North Branch

The visual display of information has become increasingly important. The bar, column and pie charts have been replaced by inventive, beautifully designed graphics that convey information and please the eye. This series of two classes will explore Microsoft Excel’s charting capabilities. Each class will build on the previous one, but attendees can attend individual sessions. These classes assume that participants have created basic charts. Register for an email reminder.
