Tables, Charts and Graphs

  • Label pictures, illustrations and charts below the figure.
  • Label tables above the table.
  • When labeling figures, tables, slides, modules, chapters, etc., use numerals: Slide 3 instead of Slide Three.
  • The % sign is acceptable for use in tables, charts and graphs.
  • Abbreviations, acronyms and brevity codes may be used only if space is an issue, however, not on first mention. Spell out Department of Defense on first reference, then use DOD.
