Ultimate Charts (Part 1)
Many would agree with the statement that simple charts in spreadsheets are, well, really not that simple. Our comprehensive Ultimate Charts (Part 1) spreadsheet collection and Ultimate Charts (Part 2) with different built-in types of charts: waterfalls, pie charts, stacked areas, histograms and treemaps were developed to actually simplify the process and save you hours of work and hundreds of nerve cells. A number of chart collages and dashboards are also available.

To see which chart will serve your needs best, read the brief description of each below.
- 2d Bar Chart – this chart represents data categories through vertical or rectangular bars that are proportional to numerical values. Bar charts highlight the relationship between data groups and statistical values and detail changes in data groups over time. They also show the frequency of each data category.
- Horizontal bar chart – Horizontal Bar Charts are used for graphing nominal variables. Nominal variables are organized in a list from top to bottom, which means their bars are horizontal. This type of bar chart is often used for market performance evaluation and financial data comparison.
- Sales Overview Dashboard – sales graphs and charts offer vital information about the business, and Sales Dashboard specifically provides the value of customer figures and its market positioning.
- Gantt Chart – a Gantt Chart illustrates a project schedule and timeline, as well as shows the dependency relationships between tasks and current project status.
- Waterfall Charts – Waterfall Charts are used to visually illustrate how a starting value of something becomes a final value through a series of intermediate additions and subtractions. Waterfall charts are widely used in the Finance sector.
- Histograms– a histogram is the most commonly used graph to show frequency distributions. Although it looks a lot like a bar chart, the main difference is that in bar charts, every column represents a group defined by a categorical variable, and in histograms, every column represents a group defined by a continuous, quantitative variable.
- Pie Charts – pie charts are generally used to demonstrate percentage or proportional data and the percentage represented by each category provided next to the corresponding slice of pie.
- Scatter Charts (Scatter Graph) – this chart uses dots to represent values for two different numeric variables. The position of each dot on the horizontal and vertical axis shows values for an individual data point.
- Bubble Charts – a Bubble Chart can be used instead of a scatter chart if the data has three data series that each contains a set of values. The sizes of the bubbles are determined by the values in the third data series.
- Stacked area charts – Stacked Area Charts are used to visualize part-to-whole relationships and show how each category contributes to the cumulative total.
- Combo Charts – A Combo Chart is a combination of two column charts, two line graphs or a column chart and a line graph. Combo Charts help to determine trends and patterns.
- Treemap Chart – The Treemap Chart is used for representing hierarchical data in a tree-like structure. Treemap Charts help to determine the relationship between two elements, improve the use of space, display multiple elements together, show ratios of each part to the whole and more.
