Excel: Graphing Count per day

I have a Win event log and I would like to graph how many of these events occur day by day.  What do I need to get such a graph?

Depends on what kind of graph do you prefer.
You can create a support table counting the days, and use a simple line chart. Could be a pivot chart too, depending on your data structure.

Or you can choose a heatmap-kind-of thing, something like:
Day/Hour heatmap


A basic bar or line graph X-8/27 Y=15, X=8/28 Y=13, X=8/29 Y=18 etc..
