You don’t need Microsoft Excel to chart data in an existing
Excel file; you can simply import that data and chart it entirely in Microsoft Word.
Follow these steps:
your cursor where you want your chart to appear in your Word document.
to Insert | Picture | Chart.
the Graph’s Standard Toolbar, click the Import File button.
to the folder that contains the Excel file you want to import, and
double-click the file’s icon.
the worksheet you want to import in the Select Sheet From
Workbook list box.
the range option and enter the cell range of the data you want to chart.(For example, if
the data you want to chart is located in cells A3 through D7 of the Excel
worksheet, enter A3:D7.)
The specified data will be plotted in the chart. You can now
make any format changes to the chart using Word’s Graph Standard toolbar.
