Plotting and Charting in Excel

I read a couple of articles today that discussed plotting and charting in MS Excel.  The first one talked about Antaeus, which is a free program for creating histogram plots with multivariate data.  The system is compatible with various operating systems.  If you have complicated data that you want to piece together and display for comparison, this is a great tool.

The second article I read discusses a product in MS Excel called Chart Tamer.  This feature not only seems quite useful for creating charts, but could also be fun to use.  Basically, if you’re not sure how you want your data presented in a chart, this function helps you decide how to lay it out.  It gives you options that best suit your needs, and also chooses contrasting colors that help to enhance the chart.  This looks like a great tool.
