Data Tables1:10 with Michael Watson
Overview of the Data Table chart element.
You can also add the actual underlying data for your chart to the chart itself. 0:00 That is what data tables are. 0:06 So, let's click on the chart again, 0:08 go to Design > Add Chart Element > Data Table. 0:12 Let's put it at the bottom. 0:16 So let me make this a little bit bigger, too, for you. 0:19 I don't see this used very often, but it can be helpful, 0:27 particularly if you are going to be asking people to take action or 0:30 do analysis based on the charts you're presenting. 0:34 I tend to see these used more in academic papers than in business presentations. 0:38 You could also just share the data as a separate spreadsheet with your colleagues. 0:43 Or add it as a appendix to your presentation. 0:47 It totally depends on the situation. 0:51 My personal view is that adding data tables to charts 0:54 can tend to make it more busy. 0:57 And that's why I personally shy away from it. 0:59 That said, there are situations where it is appropriate to use it, so 1:03 we cannot rule them out completely. 1:08
