When the source data for your data-driven charts is available in Excel, you can create charts directly from the Excel application.
When data in Excel changes, you can either update the charts on command or have think-cell do the update automatically.
For a step-by-step guide on how to create a chart from your Excel data using think-cell, please consider the example from Introduction to charting.
This can be especially powerful when you combine it with Excel’s conditional formatting.This is how the example chart data looks in Excel: To create a chart from Excel, select the desired data range in your Excel workbook, including series and category labels: The layout of your data must match the layout of think-cell’s internal datasheet: Column charts are usually created from data columns, whereas bar charts are created from data rows.Nevertheless it is possible to transpose the data source (see Transposing linked data).In addition to the data, some cells to the left and on top are reserved for category and series labels.If you are unsure about the exact layout required, simply insert a new chart of the desired type in Power Point and refer to the layout of its datasheet.
