This is what Peter shows in the demo below:

  • How to add percentage to numbers in a selected range.
  • How to select the range for a chart, also when the parts are separated.
  • How to change the name of a chart.
  • How to select several charts.
  • How to top align charts.
  • How to make charts horizontally distributed.
  • How to add spark lines in a column to the right of the data.
Peter uses Excel 2016 for his demo, but the Excel visualization tools are the same for earlier versions of Excel.
