    Excel - graph to show reduction in absence/lates


    I've been urgently tasked to make a graph showing how lateness for different students has reduced within a certain date range - my brain tells me a line graph, but I can't work out how to go about implementing the data. Unfortunately Excel/Graphs in general aren't by any means something I enjoy or part of my expertise, but as OFSTED are here for a 3-day inspection I've got to get it done.. but have no idea where to start!
