How It Works

SparkCode Professional works by generating a sparkline for every row of data in a rectangular block of cells. The following shows several line graphs each placed within a cell.

To create these tiny line graphs in Excel, you simply open up the main dialog of SparkCode Professional, select the block of cells and click the OK button. A graph will be generated for each row of data.

What is interesting about these graphs is that they are actually text strings. They are as easy to handle as text. You can resize them by setting their font sizes, or copy and paste them to another cell, or another software. Because they are about the same size as the words around them, you can present them very elegantly by embedding them within your Excel reports or dashboards.
