There may be times when you need to show both the chart and the underlying data that created the chart. To make this possible, you can use PowerPoint’s Data Table option. This way, not only you get the pictorial representation of the values, but you also get to show the same values in the form of a table adjacent to the chart.

To learn more, choose your version of PowerPoint. If we do not have a tutorial for your version of PowerPoint, explore the version closest to the one you use.

Gridlines are the lines that span wide and tall within the chart’s Plot Area. These Horizontal and Vertical gridlines originate from the axes, which makes the data easier to comprehend for the viewer. Gridlines may emerge from both the horizontal and vertical axes, although by default you can see only Horizontal gridlines on the chart.

The Plot Area of a chart, which is transparent by default, can be enhanced with various fill types. But you should exercise some caution, a busy Plot Area will subdue the actual chart! This can be avoided by taking a little precaution while choosing the fill type and also when you apply it.
