How to Make a T-Chart Comparison in Excel

Save

A T-chart is a simple chart that's used to make comparisons between two different viewpoints or facets of a single topic. The parts that make up a T-chart are the topic, which acts as the line at the top of the "T," and two columns, which make up the body of the "T." There's no template for this type of chart in the Excel spreadsheet application, but since it's such a simple chart type, you can create one from scratch directly in the program.

  • Double-click the Excel program icon to launch the program. Click the "Blank" template to start a blank spreadsheet document.

  • Click on cell B2. Press and hold the "Ctrl" key and click on cell C2 to highlight both cells. Click the "Merge and Center" button in the Formatting toolbar to merge the cells together. This larger cell will act as the line at the top of your T-chart.

  • Type the topic for your T-chart in the merged cell space. If you want to, you can highlight this text and click the "B" icon to bold it.

  • Click on cell B3 and type the title for one facet of the topic that you want to compare. To differentiate this as a subtopic, highlight the text and click the "B" icon to bold the text.

  • Click on cell C3 and type the title for another facet of the topic that you want to compare. To differentiate it as a subtopic, highlight the text and click the "B" icon to bold it.

  • Fill in the data for the two columns beneath the respective headings. When you're finished, click the "File" tab and select the "Save" option to save the spreadsheet.
