There may be times when you need to show both the chart and the underlying data that created the chart. To make this possible, you can use PowerPoint's Data Table option. This way, not only you get the pictorial representation of the values, but you also get to show the same values in the form of a table right below the chart.

Follow these steps to learn more in PowerPoint in 2013 for Windows:

  1. Open your presentation in PowerPoint 2013 for Windows and select the required chart, as shown in Figure 1, below.
  2. Chart selected
    Figure 1: Chart selected
  3. Doing so brings up two Charts Tools contextual tabs of the Ribbon. Select the Design tab, highlighted in red within Figure 1, above. Then, click the Add Chart Element button, shown highlighted in red within Figure 2, below. This step opens a drop-down gallery as shown in Figure 2. Within this drop-down gallery, select the Data Table option to open a sub-gallery which includes various options for the Data Table, highlighted in blue within Figure 2.
