Here is a quick excel tip to make your charts look professional by showing symbols in the axis labels instead of text.
Just follow these 4 simple steps:
- First identify the symbols you want to show on the axis or as data label from symbol fonts like webdings, wingdings or a custom dingbat font like company logos
- Now use this symbol characters as axis labels
- Finally change the font to the selected symbol font
- Really there is no 4th step, so go ahead add a little jazz to the chart. Happy Friday!
