Hour 8. Advanced Chart Techniques > Linking an Excel Chart

Linking an Excel Chart

A very popular technique for PowerPoint users is to link the chart in Excel to a PowerPoint slide. Linking bypasses Microsoft Graph entirely. You simply select your chart in Excel and press Ctrl+C (copy it to your Clipboard).

In PowerPoint, you create a Title Only or Blank PowerPoint slide (you don't need a content placeholder). Then back in PowerPoint Normal view, with the Excel chart in memory, click Edit, Paste Special. Then click Paste link, as shown in Figure 8.19, and click OK.
