Line charts can illustrate what are called data series. A data series is a group of data with similar characteristics. They can be in rows or columns. Below, you can see two series of data in columns: (a) dates, (b): sales numbers. Both data series have a title (Date, Sales).

  1. Highlight cells C1 to D11. We do not include cell D12 because it is not part of a series. It does not contain a sales number for a certain date.
