Tables, Charts and Graph

  • 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.
  • Use numerals with the percent sign (%) 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 Defense Department on first reference, then use DOD.
