Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

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.

Insert some sparklines in column F to create tiny charts of the accident data in columns B:E.

Use the sparkline tools Design tab to edit the sparklines.  Add some colour markers and change the line colour (changing the row height and adding some cell background shading is usually effective too).

In column G, add some column sparklines.  Change the formats for these too until you are happy with their appearance.


Your sparklines don't have to be the same as these.

Change the accident figure for deer in 2010 to just 100 to see the effect it has on the sparklines:

Sparklines change when the data changes

Sparklines always reflect the data in the cells.
