Select the WordPress table
First of all, we will need to create or select our WP Table.

To create the table, we only need to click on +Create New > Table or Database Table depending on if we want to generate data directly from the database.
We will have available our table editor full of tools to add data to our table, including options like import from an excel file, OneDrive Excel, a CSV file, or Google Sheets, as well as an auto sync if we want to edit our files externally from the WordPress site.
It is also important to note that we can use an already created table.
Now we can start filling our table with data to generate the charts and graphs directly from there.
Generating fully customizable charts and graphs

In this example, we will use a very simple table with data but if it has data that can be converted, it will work perfectly.
In the table, select the rows that will be used for the chart or graph.
Now click on Chart > Create Chart from data.
A graphic will be displayed with the data that was selected in the table with many option to the right to fully customize it.
As we can see in the right panel, we have many options, let's check them one by one!
Themes: The first option that we can find, we can select here between charts and Graphs with a different preview of the theme available, there is also an option to manually change the data range and also select if we want to use Rows or columns as the data.
Custom axis data: On this section we can select the x/y axis as well as set labels for our charts/graphs and if we want to use the first row/column as y/x labels and data.
