Excel 2010 Sparklines example in a spreadsheet



Over on the Excel 2010 blog by Microsoft, they have a great article on sparklines in Excel.   Look forward to seeing this functionality in use within the product next week when I finally install the bits on my machine.   I believe this is a great visual to give end-users, but I remember one time I showed a sparkline on a scorecard and the executive said, “I like it but I have no idea what the time frame is below the sparkline to understand or take any action.”   The sparklines are very small and without a date below the lines, it is hard to interpret.   Anyway, I still this it is VERY COOL.
