If you would rather have a curved
line graph than a jagged one, Excel can change your line graph for you. Select
the line you want to format by clicking on it or using the Chart Object Selector
on the Chart Toolbar and then press
1. Click on
the Patterns section of the window to bring up the window shown below.
Place a tick in the Smoothed Line box and click OK,
your line will now be curved. You
can also use this window to add or change line markers and to make a line
dashed, thicker or thinner. This
can be useful when printing a line chart in black and white.
