Lesson 24. Creating Charts > Creating a Chart

Creating a Chart

You can place your new chart on the same worksheet that contains the chart data (an embedded chart) or on a separate worksheet (a chart sheet). If you create an embedded chart, it is typically printed side-by-side with your worksheet data. If you create a chart on a separate worksheet, you can print it independently. Both types of charts are linked to the worksheet data that they represent, so when you change the data, the chart is automatically updated.

Plain English

Embedded Charts A chart that is placed on the same worksheet as the data used to create the chart is called embedded. A chart can also be placed on a chart sheet in the workbook so that the worksheet and chart are separate. Embedded charts are useful for showing the actual data and its graphic representation side-by-side. On the other hand, when a chart is placed on its own sheet, it's easier to locate and print.
