How to Draw a Graph in Word 2007
Word 2007 comes with a variety of graphs for any project, such as area and pie charts. An area chart can be used to display data over a specific time, while a pie chart can compare a certain set of data in relation to the whole. When you draw a graph in Word 2007, Excel opens beside the Word document, allowing you to add data for your graph. You can customize your graph after it is created.
Open a new or existing document in Word 2007. Then place the insertion point where the graph will be created.
Select the "Insert" tab and choose "Chart" from the "Illustrations" group.
Select the type of graph you want to draw in the "Insert Chart" dialog box. Then click "OK."
Go to the Excel application (now open on your screen) and insert the graph's data.
Return to Word when you are finished and select the graph.
Go to the "Design" tab in the "Chart Styles" group to customize the graph's design. Then pick a design from the "Chart Styles" gallery.
Go to the "Labels" group in the "Layout" tab. Select the label you want to apply, such as chart title, axis titles, legend, data labels, or data table.
Go to the "Axes" group under the "Layout" tab to add axes or gridlines to the graph.
Go to the "Format" tab to change the shape or colors of elements within the graph.
