  1. Hi Geise, one possibility is to reduce the amount of graphics talking about them in the text and putting them in the attachment, so as not to take up CBT space itself. About bundling information on a single chart, it is quite possible as well, but be careful not to lose the sense of what you want to pass

  2. Hi Rafael, I'm finished with my TCC and I found a problem.
    I will have around 40 graphs “which is very much according to my advisor”, and I cannot unite two statements made to the employees of the company analyzed in the same graph. Can you help me?
    Thank you in advance.

  3. It is not possible to make a chart that has two types in the same series of data, but it is possible to “circumvent” this by creating a chart of one type for a quantity of data and another, of another type for the remaining quantity. Example
    - if I have 10 values ​​and I want 5 to be a column and 5 to be a row
    - I take these 10 values ​​and separate them into two lines, the first would be xyzwk 0 0 0 0 0 and the second would be 0 0 0 0 0 XNUMX abcde

  4. Hello!
    I'm trying to make a chart that starts with one model and ends in another. Do you know if this is possible?

  5. Hi Edicleiton, I believe it is possible, you just need to adjust the data used in the chart. To make changing the chart type easy, just select the chart and go to the DESIGN tab (there you have the option to change the type)

  6. Hi Rafael,
    They have how to put in the same stacking chart and bar. Ex: the goal would be with bar graph and the one performed by the man and performed by the woman to be stacked with graphics all this per day on the x axis?

  7. Hi William, you can do this, just have 4 series on your chart and organize how each of them will be presented. The only risk is getting a little messy.

  8. Good!
    Doubt: can you include two lines, each referring to a specific column?
    Ex .: Revenue column with revenue percentage line ... Expense column with expense percentage line.

  9. Thank you Alcyane! A good tip I can give you is to upgrade your Excel to 2016, which has some extra features

  10. Hi Bruno,

    I use Excel 2013, so I do not know exactly all the features of 2010. But if you say you are not finding the combo option it is very likely that it only appeared in Excel 2013.

    Anyway, even without this option I believe you can choose the series of data of interest and modify the type of chart. In the example of the post instead of you click combination, I would click on line chart, because that way, you would change the third series to not be more column and just turn line ok?

  11. My Excel 2010 does not have the combo option, only works from Excel 2013?
