November 28, 2008, Newsletter Issue #284: Get creative with Excel charts

Tip of the Week

While the default Excel charts look professional in an OK sort of way, you can add a bit of life and colour to charts using Fill Effects.

Double click an area of your chart (the background for example) and select Fill Effects from the Patterns tab.

Experiment with some of the built in settings or create your own using your own pictures.

Have fun.
