    Start with data in Excel or Access, and you should be able to use the Microsoft Graph plug-in for either program. Comes standard in the MS Office 97 package. In Excel, which is probably where you want to start, just search help for "create chart", and it'll pretty much walk you through it.

    jenni: What is Microsoft 97? Is that Microsoft Office 97? If so, you should have a program called Excel.

    If you're unfamiliar with it, do this:

    1. Open Excel
    2. Type exactly as follows (like the game Battleship or Bingo)

    In cell B1, type "Expense"
    In cell A2, type "Rent"
    In cell B2, type "600"
    In cell A3, type "Electric"
    In cell B3, type "75"
    In cell A4, type "Telephone"
    In cell B4, type "50"

    Now, select cells A1 through B4 and hit (from the menu) Insert-Chart. Choose a pie chart as the type of chart and hit Finish.

    Delete the chart, select the data again and try a different type of chart.

    Change the word "Expense" to "January", make new columns for "February", etc. Insert the amounts for those months. Select all the data and make a column chart.

    Of course, you have to have Excel to follow these directions.
