Chart Data Foils

Chart Data Foils provides a visual indicator directly on the spreadsheet highlighting the source range of cells for charts. Users can easily modify that range with the click and drag of a mouse. After a user has created a chart, they can now leverage Data Foils to modify which rows/columns of data are used for their chart including its series titles, series values, and category values.
