This month I am teaching my classes how to use Microsoft Excel. One really cool graphic chart feature is called Sparklines. A sparkline is a tiny chart in a worksheet cell that provides a visual representation of data (Source: Support.Office.com).
By selecting the data you want to examine and creating a sparkline, this can indicate possible trends in your data. There are 3 types of sparklines you can choose from such as line, column or win/loss. You can format your data by adding colored high, low, beginning, or end data points to the sparklines on your chart to help it stand out.
