Getting help choosing the right chart type in Excel

As a follow-up to my previous post depicting a flow chart for choosing which type of chart can better emphasize our reporting needs, I dig up an Excel add in intending to help you in this task.

Published by Microsoft Office labs, the Chart Advisor add in for Excel “identifies, ranks, and displays an array of charts most relevant to you so you
can make the most out of your presentation.”

Though not very new (it was first published in may 2010), it’s worse mentioning it for those of you who may not have been aware of its existence. One last word to say that there is no Office 2010 version, it only works with Office 2007.
