How to Apply Parallax Theme in Excel: Step-By-Step Guidelines

Excel themes allow us to modify the appearance of our worksheet with a single click. Creating themes in Excel is an easy task. But to apply the parallax theme we need to follow some steps first to visualize the effects of the theme.

Step 1: Create Table to Arrange Dataset

We need to arrange the dataset. If you organize information and activities in a worksheet, you remove the burden from your recollection by being able to obtain your tasks, engagements, or any other pertinent data realistically and objectively anytime you really need it.

  • Firstly, we will put all the sets of data into our spreadsheet. And the dataset contains a company’s quarterly sales in 2022. This carries some employee names and the sales of quarters 1, 2, and 3.

  • Then, under Get & Transform Data, select From Table/Range option.

Step 2: Insert Chart

A chart is a feature in Excel that allows us to visually explain the data. Charts help our readers understand the meaning behind the data and make it simpler to highlight similarities and patterns. Now, to make the data more explainable, we will insert a chart.

  • In the first place, go to the Insert tab on the ribbon.
  • Then, in the Charts category, click on the Insert Column or Bar Chart drop-down menu.
  • After that, select the first chart from the 2-D Column.

  • And, that’s it! Finally, the data charts are inserted for better visualization.

  • The total spreadsheets look like this, now we need to apply the parallax theme on it.

  • Scroll down and find the Parallax theme and click on the Parallax theme.
