Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Insert a chart from Excel, part of Creating Reports in Word 2016.
- [Instructor] I have a chart in Excel…that I also want to include,…and that chart is related to electricity generation…usage as well, it comes out of the same workbook…where I retrieve this table.…It actually comes in after these global increases…in population created an increase…in the need for electricity,…so I'm going to create a little space…where I'd like this chart to go.…And let's go get it.…Swing over to Excel…and here's a chart illustrating electricity…generation by fuel and energy source.…
I'm going to select and copy this,…swing back over to Microsoft Word to my report,…and I'd like to paste this.…Now my paste options are different than they were…for the table and this is important to know.…The table I was actually just grabbing the information…that was in the table itself, nothing else was affected.…But when I am bringing in a chart,…my choices are either to embed the workbook…or to link to the workbook because the chart needs…a data source sitting underneath it.…
This workbook only includes data that would really be okay…
