Excel charts can display data in the form of visual graphs, so that we can easily find the essential information behind the data, such as the proportion of men and women in a department, data trends over time, market share, etc. In this article, I am going to show you how to create clustered column charts, pie charts and line charts in an Excel document, by using Free Spire.XLS for Java.
Add Spire.Xls.jar as dependency
Method 1: Download Free Spire.XLS for Java pack, unzip it and you’ll get Spire.Doc.jar file from the “lib” folder. Import the jar file in your project as a denpendency.
Method 2: If you are creating a Maven project, you can easily add the jar dependency by adding the following configurations to the pom.xml.
