Charts I: How to create a chart in Excel 2007

Excel chart pasted into a PowerPoint presentation

Your Excel chart in a PowerPoint presentation.

When your chart looks just the way you want it to, it's easy to add it to a PowerPoint presentation so that everyone can see it. And if the chart data changes after you add the chart to PowerPoint, don't worry. Changes to the chart data in Excel are updated in the chart in PowerPoint as well.

Here is how it works. Copy the chart in Excel. Open PowerPoint 2007. On the slide you want the chart to be on, paste the chart. In the chart's lower-right corner the Paste Options Button image button appears. Click the button. You'll see that Chart (linked to Excel data) is selected. That ensures that any changes to the chart in Excel will automatically be made to the chart in PowerPoint.

Now you are ready to present your chart.
