Data bars help you see the value of a cell relative to other cells. The length of the data bar represents the value in the cell. A longer bar represents a higher value and a shorter bar represents a lower value. Data bars are useful in spotting higher and lower numbers especially with large amounts of data, such as top and bottom selling toys in a holiday sales report.
