Note: In Excel 2007, there are no sparkline buttons on the Insert tab for you to insert cute sparkline charts directly. However, you can insert a mimic sparkline in Excel 2007 with:

(1) Creating a line chart by clicking Insert > Line > Line;

(2) Remove this line chart’s legend, horizontal/vertical axes, and grid lines;

(3) Resize this line chart to your need.
