Insert Statistic Chart

Insert Statistic Chart

(OP)
I'm trying to make a histogram of some QC date in Excel 2016. The MS online help says to select the data and Click Insert > Insert Statistic Chart > Histogram. I don't have any "Insert Statistic Chart" option on the Insert tab. Alternatively, you are supposed to be able to pick Insert > Charts > All Charts > Histogram but I have no Histogram option in All Charts. I tried loading the Analysis ToolPak in Addins but that didn't seem to make any difference. And yes, I rebooted but that made no difference either.

RE: Insert Statistic Chart

On mine, as Greg, then click the All Charts tab, rather Recommended Charts, which is displayed by default.

Alternatively there is a "Statistics Charts" icon in the Charts group on the Insert tab.

I don't have a statistics chart option. And none of those icons give me a statistics chart option.

RE: Insert Statistic Chart

In digging around - one suggestion is to turn off "Compatibility View" which does make sense. If it cannot save the new chart format it won't let you create one.

THANKS! It was an .XLS file, I saved it in .XLSX and now I have the histogram graphs. I had to save, exit Excel and restart but it's there.
