New Excel Chart Wizard

Microsoft Office Labs has developed the Chart Advisor: a prototype add-in that provides an alternate approach for creating charts in Excel 2007 and uses an advanced rules engine to scan your data and, based on predefined rules, displays charts according to score.

Top scoring charts are generated charts, ranked, and displayed as thumbnails in a dialog for preview and tweaking by filtering data and how it is mapped.

I have asked for an Access version.
