Easily Changing Chart Data Ranges in Excel

There are a few different ways to change chart data ranges in Excel. The easiest way is to simply select the new data range you want to use for your chart, and then click on the "Update" button in the "Data Range" section of the Excel Chart Tools ribbon. This will automatically update your chart to use the new data range.

If you want more control over how your chart data ranges are updated, you can use the "Edit" button in the "Data Range" section of the Excel Chart Tools ribbon. This will open up a dialog box where you can specify exactly which cells you want to include in your chart data range. You can also specify whether you want the chart to include all data points in the selected range, or only data points that have values (i.e., exclude blank cells).

Another way to change chart data ranges is to use the "Select Data" button in the "Data" section of the Excel Chart Tools ribbon. This will open up a dialog box where you can select which data series you want to include in your chart, as well as specify the exact cells that contain the data for each series. This is useful if you want to add or remove data series from your chart, or if you want to change the order in which the data series are displayed.

Finally, you can also manually edit the source data for your chart by clicking on the "Edit Data" button in the "Data" section of the Excel Chart Tools ribbon. This will open up a dialog box where you can edit the values and labels for each data point in your chart. This is useful if you want to make small changes to your chart data without having to re-enter all of the information.
