It is a basic building block of the data point.
Individual plot in the chart values are known as data points. Graph Visual because it represents the numeric value of one or more data points that the value is always. However, most Excel formula also also able to plot the formula to meaningful numbers, that you have to note. (Actually, if you like this you really formula calculation value plot are. )
Organize a series of data points.
Related to all data series of terms-can refers to all parts of the same set of collection of values. This may sound complicated, but really is not. If you create a chart over the last 10 years of monthly interest per cent of its collection interest is a data series.

Anderson, Baker Carson three companies of fictitious sales revenue to plot a simple line chart if you something-like with ", is Anderson's revenue, revenue Baker's and Carson revenue figure" to say maybe this is not a coincidence; displays data series in the chart. Hans Christian Andersen revenue is a set of data. So Baker's revenue and profit of Carson.
