This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
Open the file contained within the folder name shown above.
Press CTRL + A to select all the data, then press F11 to create a default chart.
Use the chart filter tool to exclude (remove) the % of population series from the chart. This is the chart you have so far:
We want to improve this chart!
The chart would look much better if the Total Population series used a different scale as the numbers are much larger.
Change the chart type to a Combo chart and change the chart type for the Total Population to a line chart on a secondary axis:
Just the Total Population series is set to a Line chart on a Secondary Axis.
The chart will now have 2 axis scales:
You can edit each axis scale separately.
Use the formatting options to make the Total Population line chart clearer:
A darker, dotted line could be easier to see more clearly.
