Making a Microsoft Word Scatter Plot Graph

The tool bar at the top of your page should look something like:

 Click and holdon the top tool bar. Drag the cursor to select then number of rows and columns you want on your table. In this example I have chosen 6 rows and 2 columns

If you can not see the gridlines then use your cursor to highlight the invisible table you made:

then go into the Table menu and select Gridlines.


The gridlines should be visible now. Enter your data.

Highlight the portion of your data that you want to include in your pie chart and press on the tool bar at the top of the page.

Select XY (Scatter) on the ChartWizard screen that appears.

Select Next.

Select the format 3 for your XY (Scatter) chart then click on Next.

This step is critical. For this Scatter Plot it must be set up this way. You may need to experiment with these settings for your chart.

Enter a Chart Title, X-axis and Y-axis Titles and indicate whether you want the legend attached. Click on Finish when you are done.

Your Broken Line Graph is done!!

Draw the line of best fit.
