Chapter 7. Working with Charts > Importing Data into a Chart

Importing Data into a Chart

Instead of typing data in a datasheet to create a chart, you can enter data by importing it from another source, such as a Word table, a Microsoft Excel workbook, or a Microsoft Access database. For example, if the owner of The Garden Company tracks quarterly sales by department in an Excel worksheet, she can import that information into a chart in a report created in Word.


To import data, you select the cells in the datasheet where you want the data to be placed, click the Import File button on Graph’s Standard toolbar, and then select a data file. The Import Data Options dialog box appears and asks you to select the data you want to import. If you do not want incoming data to overwrite existing data, clear the “Overwrite existing cells” check box before clicking OK.
