In reports or evaluations using Excel spreadsheets, a large amount of data is often presented in one or more tables. In many cases, this is a period analysis. In order to visualize the development of data, for example the number of orders per month, it is useful to create a diagram.

But charts, when displayed within the spreadsheet, tend to take up a lot of space. If they are alternatively displayed in a new spreadsheet, however, not all information is visible at a glance. Excel offers a solution here to visualize data right in the cell in the form of a small chart.

  1. To do this, select the "Insert" tab in the menu bar. There you will find the Sparklines section. Here you can choose from three different design types.

  2. Select the cell in which the diagram is to appear.
  3. Select the desired display type in the menu bar.
  4. Define the cell range whose data is to serve as the basis for the diagram.

This allows you to visualize developments clearly and compactly within a spreadsheet and thus enhance reports or analyses.
