The Chart Wizard

Excel's Chart Wizard walks you through the creation of a chart. It uses illustrated dialogs to prompt you for information. In each step of the Chart Wizard, you get to see what your chart looks like. At any point, you can go back and make changes to selections. When you're finished, your chart appears. You can then use a variety of chart formatting commands and buttons to change the look of your chart.
