Charts, graphics, and images are excellent ways to visualizeÂ and convey data, and Excel does the same for us by generating charts automatically. We might occasionally want to go beyond the basic charts that Excel generates for us. Let’s learn about advanced charts and graphs used in excel,

**Advanced Chart**

A more complex chart than Excel’s default oneÂ is referred to as an advanced chart. If you want to compare many sets of data on the same chart, you can start by creating your basic chart with just one set of data, then add other datasets and other elements, such as formatting. Advanced charts are all about this. For complicated charts in Excel, they provide aggregated data in a single chart, making it simpler to evaluate many data sets and take quick decisions. They let us modify how the expert Excel charts appear and operate.

**How to Add Charts and Graphs in Excel**

Below are the steps to add charts and graphs in excel:

**Step 1:** First** open the MS-EXCEL** and then** write your data** there in the sheet.

**Step 2:** Then **select all your data.** Go to the** insert option**, from this you can** insert any type of chart and graph** according to your data.

**Step 3:** You will find **different charts **that areÂ shown below. When hovering over the chart** it shows a brief description** and **the kind of data** it should be used is included in each part.

Now we are going to discuss all the charts in detail.

**Column or Bar Chart**

When displaying categorical data, a bar chart or bar graph employs **rectangular bars with heights or lengths proportional to the values they stand for.** Vertical or horizontal bar plots are both possible. Vertical bar graphs are also referred to as column charts. Any type of data column or bar chart can be used. **For example,** if we have to show the above-mentioned data in a column chart then.

**Step 1:** Select all the data. Click on **insert a column or bar chart.**

**Step 2:** You will observe the** column and bar chart in 2-D and 3-D forms.**

**Step 3: **Here**,** We are choosing the** clustered column for our data representation.**

**Step 4: **Now we can see the **clustered column chart with the table.**

**Bar Chart**

**Step 1:** If we have to show the above-mentioned data in a bar chart for that you **need to follow step1 and step2 as same.** and then you just have to** choose a clustered bar chart this time.**

**Step 2: **Now we can see the **clustered bar chart with the table.**

**Pie or Doughnut Chart**

A pie chart is a circular graph that** resembles a pie cut into slices** (sectors). **Slices display the percentage that each value makes up of the total,** with the area of each slice corresponding to **the amount it stands for and the circle signifying 100%. A doughnut chart is a pie diagram with a blank circle in the center. **When comparing categories in tiny data sets, pie charts are frequently utilized. When there are more than a handful of categories, they shouldn’t be used and cannot be multiple-series. **For example,** if we want to show the given below data in a pie chart then:

**Step 1:** Select **all the data.** Go to the option **insert** and then in the chart group** select pie or doughnut chart.**

**Step 2:** You will observe here the **pie chart in 2-D and 3-D forms.**

**Step 3: **We are here **using the 2-D pie option** that is shown below image:

**Step 4: **Now we can see the** pie chart with the table.**

**Doughnut Chart**

**Step 1:** If we have to show the above-mentioned data in a doughnut chart for that you **need to follow step1 and step2 the same** and then you just have to** choose a doughnut chart option this time.**

**Step 2: **Now we can see the **doughnut chart with the table.**

**Line and Area Chart**

Typically, line charts are used to discuss trends over a specific period. The **X-axis represents certain significant measurements, whereas the Y-axis displays numerical values.** Since you can see the specific trend for each data category on a line chart, they are simple to interpret. In practice, finance managers welcome line types to examine trends in earnings and other aspects of the business.** Line charts and area charts both follow similar patterns.** However, a certain hue fills the space between each line and the X-axis. **Area charts are typically the best choice for showing changes between various data sources. For example,** if we want to show the given below data in a line chart then,

**Step 1**: Select **all the data. **Go to the option** insert line or area chart.**

**Step 2:** You will observe **the line and area chart in 2-D and 3-D forms.**

**Step 3: **Here, we are using a** 2-D normal line chart.**

**Step 4: **Now we can see the** line chart with the table.**

**Area Chart**

**Step 1:** If we have to show the above-mentioned data in an area chart for that you **need to follow step 1 and step 2 the same** and then you just have to **choose an area chart option this time.**

**Step 2: **Now we can see the** area chart with the table.**

**Histogram**

A histogram is a diagram** that shows how numerical data are distributed. **A histogram is a **column chart that more easily conveys the frequency of data within a given range.** Utilizing the number of data points that fall inside a given range of values, allows the visualization of numerical data. For any type of data, the histogram can be used. **For example, **if we want to show the given below data in a histogram then:

**Step 1: **Select all the data. Go to the option** insert statistic chart.**

**Step 2: **You will observe here the **histogram and box & whisker.**

**Step 3: **Here we are going to **choose a histogram.**

**Step 4:** Now we can see the **histogram with the table.**

**Box and Whisker**

A** box-and-whisker chart** shows **quartiles and groups of numerical data** from the data collection. The box depicting the **lower and upper quartiles and the lines extending** from it gave this visualizationÂ its original name, theÂ boxplot chart (whisker). **For example,** if we want to show the given below data in a box and whisker then:

**Step 1:** Select all the data. Go to the **option insert statistics chart.**

**Step 2:** You will observe here **histograms and box & whisker chart.**

**Step 3: **Here we are going to **choose a box and whisker chart.**

**Step 4: **Now we can see the** box and whisker chart with the table.**

**Treemap and Sunburst**

These two styles of charts make it simple to identify data patterns or compare data volumes. You can **use a Treemap or sunburst chart in Reports to show the hierarchy by choosing members and functions from a single dimension. **Additionally, you can define element colors and chart characteristics as necessary.** A treemap chart is a type of data visualization that uses stacked rectangles of various sizes and colors to display hierarchical data. **Each level of the hierarchy is represented by a rectangle, also known as a branch, that contains further rectangles (leaves). **Another tool for representing hierarchical data structures is a sunburst chart. **An inner circle and outside rings of higher hierarchical levels make up a sunburst chart. **For example,** if we want to show the given below data in a treemap then:

**Step 1: **Select all the data. Go to the** option insert hierarchy chart.**

**Step 2:** You will observe here **treemap and sunburst.**

**Step 3: **Here we are going to **choose a treemap.**

**Step 4: **Now we can see the** treemap with the table.**

**Sunburst**

**For example, **if we want to show the given below data in a sunburst then:

**Step 1: **If we have to show the above-mentioned data in a** sunburst for that you need to follow step1 and step2 the same **and then you just have to **choose a sunburst option this time.**

**Step 2:** Now we can see the **sunburst with the table.**

**Map**

The newest versions of Microsoft Excel have the Excel Map Chart feature. It enables beautiful and creative visualization of any kind of geographic data. The **Map Chart’s cool feature is the automatic geographic data identification and recognition, which eliminates the need for you to manually match your data points with a certain map area**. Excel takes care of everything instead, regardless of whether your data are at the level of a country, state, country, or even postal code. **For example, **if we want to show the given below data on a map then:

**Step 1:** Select all the data. Go to **option maps.**

**Step 2:** Here you just need to **choose maps.**

**Step 3: **Now we can see the **map with the table.**

**Scatter or Bubble Chart**

Both of these charts make it simple to understand the relationship between the two values for all of the chart’s elements because the **X-axis shows one numerical field and the y-axis shows another. The size of the data points in bubble charts is determined by a third numerical variable. Both bubble and scatter charts can simultaneously display two or more data dimensions.** Data linked to risk management, audit, and SOX processes are frequently communicated via bubble and scatter charts. **For example, **if we want to show the given below data in a scatter(X, Y) chart then:

**Step 1:** Select all the data. Go to the option** insert scatter (X, Y) and bubble chart.**

**Step 2: **You will observe here **bubble and scatter charts.**

**Step 3:** Choose a** normal scatter chart.**

**Step 4: **Now we can see the** scatter chart with the table.**

**Bubble Chart**

**Step 1: **If we have to show the above-mentioned data in a** **bubble chart for that you need to **follow step 1 and step 2 the same** and then you just have to** choose a bubble chart option this time.**

**Step 2: **Now we can see the** bubble chart with the table.**

**Waterfall Chart**

A waterfall chart sometimes referred to as a** flying bricks chart or a Mario chart aids in understanding the cumulative impact of successively added positive or negative values** that may be time- or category-based. The individual negative and **positive modifications are shown as floating steps, and the initial and end values are displayed as columns.** Some waterfall charts join the lines that separate the columns to give the impression that the chart is a bridge.

**For example,** if we want to show the given below data in a waterfall chart then:

**Step 1:** Select all the data. Go to the **insert waterfall option **that is shown in the below image.

**Step 2:** You will **observe here many charts that are shown** below in the image.

**Step 3:** Here we are going to **choose a waterfall chart.**

**Step 4:** Now we can see the** waterfall with the table.**

**Combo Chart**

In Excel, a combo chart or combination chart is more frequently used. It combines two or more distinct Excel charts. **For example, **if we want to show the given below data in a combo chart then:

**Step 1:** Select all the data. Go to the **Insert combo chart option** that is shown in the below image.

**Step 2:** You will observe **here many charts that are shown **below in the image.

**Step 3:** Choose a **clustered column-Line chart.**

**Step 4:** Now we can see the** clustered column line chart with the table.**
