In general, a stock table includes the stock insurance date, the stock volume, stock opening price, closing price, the highest price and the lowest price just like the below screenshot shown.

Tip: In Excel 2013, click Insert > See All Charts arrow, then in the Insert Chart dialog, select Stock > Volume-Open-High-Low-Close stock chart under All Charts tab, and click OK to close this dialog. See screenshot:


2. Now a stock chart including all stock data is inserted in Excel. See screenshot:

If your have over 200 records in your chart, it will quickly become unreadable. That is why we created a new Excel app called Yellohcharts. Our app enables you to visualize over 30.000 records in milliseconds, directly inside Excel. You can see the app in action on our website at and get all the details. Hope this helps.
