Easily create a slope graph in Excel

In many cases, you may need to create a slope chart to compare data changes over time by plotting the change between two points only. In Excel, there is no build-in feature to create a slope chart directly. Normally, to create a slope chart in Excel, you need to insert a line with marker chart firstly and then format it with multi-step until it turns to a complete slope chart. Here, I will recommend the Slope Chart utility of Kutools for Excel. With this feature, you can easily create a slope chart with several clicks only.

Easily create a slope graph in Excel

Supposing you want to create a slope chart based on the table data as the below screenshot shown, please do as follows to get it down.

1. Click Kutools > Charts > Difference Comparison > Slope Chart.

2. In the popping up Slope Chart dialog box, please configure as follows.

2.1) In the Axis Labels box, select the axis values in the table;
2.2) In the Data Series 1 box, select the first series values (this series will display on the left of the slope chart) in the table;
2.3) In the Data Series 2 box, select the second series values (this series will display on the right of the slope chart);
2.4) Click the OK button.


1. If you want to add data labels to the series, please check the Show values box;
2. Click the Example button to open the slope chart sample.
