Click Ok to generate the battery chart.


1) You can directly type values into Actual Value and Target Value textboxes, or click shot battery chart 1 button to select the cell references. But you cannot manually type one value and then use cell reference as another value, otherwise it will pop out a warning dialog as below screenshot shown:
