A reminder and quick note that Bill “MrExcel” Jelen is teaming up with CFO.com to present a Live Webcast, March 17th, 2011. The Webcast, “Charting With Excel – Part I” will begin at 2PM Eastern.

“Charting With Excel – Part I”

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a chart can easily show thousands of data points. However, many people inadvertently choose the wrong chart type and then cloud their charts with miscellany that adds little to the message they intend to convey. This Webcast will give you the basics of chart theory and then show you powerful tricks to enable you to make charts faster in Excel.

From this Webcast, you will learn:

  • How to create perfect charts in one keystroke
  • When to use which type of chart
  • Which Excel features to avoid when creating charts
  • How to easily add new data to an existing chart
  • How to create interactive charts
  • How to combine two different types of charts in a single chart

In addition to having the opportunity to earn continuing professional education (CPE) credit, each participant in the Webcast will be able to receive a copy of one of two books from Bill Jelen:

  • Charts & Graphs for Excel 2007
  • Charts and Graphs: Microsoft Excel 2010
