You can place more than one chart on a chart sheet. For example, let's say you have two charts on two different worksheets, and you want to put them both on a single chart sheet for comparison and printing.

Follow these steps:

  1. Click an empty cell, and press [F11].
  2. Change the default chart name to Two Chart Sheet.
  3. Select the first chart you want to move to the chart sheet, and go to Chart | Location.
  4. Select As Object In, and choose Two Chart Sheet from the drop-down list.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Repeat Steps 3 through 5 for the second chart you want to move.

You can move as many charts as you can fit. Go to View | Sized With Window to scale the charts to the window.
