  1. This step by step video is just a godsend for me. Thank you, you saved me a lot of work and stress of trying to figure out how to create a line chart with markers. You’re explanation is excellent.

  2. As always your content hits the spot and is very practical.
    I have been using excel on google and found many of your tutorials helpful.
    Do these all work for excel that is on google?

    • Hi Thabo, Google sheets is somewhat similar to Microsoft Excel, but nowhere near as comprehensive. But you can do all the basics, the same as MS Excel. My tutorials and lessons can be carried out using Google sheets too. Take care 🙂

  3. Hi Habib. This is great! Something that could be considered quite complicated to an Excel novice is actually very simple to do. In this day and age, it´s also good to know how to create a graph which shows “trending” information. Thank you for much for the lesson!

  4. Habib,

    Your lessons are clear, concise and easy to understand. Your video and voice are also both clear and done very well. I do consider your lessons to be very professional. Well done.


  5. Well done, Habib.

    It is a very useful video. I know how to select non-adjacent data and create a corresponding line chart now. Thank you so much. Together with the video of Lesson 37, I’m now able to change a line chart to another type of chart. In the nutshell, your Excel video series can really help many people to better use Excel software. Keep it up.

    All the best,

  6. I have never been good in graphs in Excel, but now I understand the steps.
    Is it an idea to put some screenshots beneath the video with a little bit of text?
    Anyway, the video is helpfull in itself.
    Thanks, Habib

    • Thanks for you feedback Hannie, and I will be adding more textual data to go with the video, but for now the video is doing the job and everyone is loving it. Happy to hear you now got an understanding of how to include graphs in excel.
