On January 13, Ben Jezierski, Training Coordinator of Information Technology, conducted a workshop entitled “Creating Charts with Microsoft Excel” for PC Users. This session was the most recent offering in the CAS Administrative Assistants’ Professional Enrichment Series.
The four most commonly-used charts were covered: pie, bar, column, and line charts. After a discussion of two important preliminary tasks–arranging data correctly in a spreadsheet and selecting the most appropriate kind of chart to display the data– participants gained hands-on experience in creating charts and graphs and formatting them to clearly present information. Handouts from the workshop are available on the CAS Administrative Assistants’ Blackboard site on MySJU. A version of this workshop for MAC users is being planned for the spring.
