Here's how to create a chart in Excel to display your company's financial growth

 
There are different types of graph functions in Excel but the most useful is a Pivot Chart. This is an easy-to-use and format type of chart.
 
Here's how to create it:
 
Step #1: Right click on any of the data and select 'Group' from the list.
 
Step #2: Excel will have already selected 'Months'. You must left click on 'Years' to select it as well.
 
Step #3: Click 'OK'. You have now grouped your data by month and year. 
 
Step #4: Click on 'Pivot Chart' to display the 'Pivot Table Field List'.
 
This will create a graph that shows different years and their monthly growth. If you send this off to your shareholders, they can see how well their investments are doing quickly and easily.
