Select the Microsoft Excel option and click on the Select File option to import the file from your computer. The data will be automatically added to your Graph or Chart.
Note: We suggest you work with aggregate or pivoted data for your spreadsheet imports. Visme will use the first tab (or sheet) within your Excel file that you import into the graph engine. The data will populate into the Chart Data tab where you can continue to make adjustments to the data manually as needed.
