Add-ins/Web tools for Excel charts
Jon Peltier’s Excel chart add-in at https://peltiertech.com/Utility30/
When you are considering using an add-in for Excel, always remember to check with your IT department to make sure it approved and allowed to be installed on a corporate computer. Also make sure that the charts it creates will be in the current chart format so others can use the files you create.
If you are considering using a web tool to create charts, be careful. Your organization likely has a data privacy & security policy that prohibits putting confidential data on external websites. You don’t want to end up violating an important intellectual property policy by using one of these sites.
