How to Move a Chart From Excel to Word


All versions of the Microsoft Office Suite were built so components within the suite could fluidly interact with each other. Take advantage of having both Excel and Word by using the two programs within each other. After creating a chart in Excel, move it into Word with nothing more than the usual copy and paste process. Use Excel charts in Word to illustrate reports, provide information and more than anything, not have to recreate the chart from scratch.

  • Open Excel. Click the "File" tab and select "Open." Locate the spreadsheet with the chart to move to Word. Click once on the chart to select it. Press the "Ctrl" and "C" keys on the keyboard to copy the chart. Close Excel.

  • Open Word. If moving the chart into an existing Word document, find the file by clicking "File," then "Open," then "Browse." Double-click the Word document and scroll to the section to add the chart.

  • Press the "Enter" key to add a space into the document or "Ctrl" and "Enter" to start a new page for the chart. Skip this step if you did not open an existing Word document.

  • Press the "Ctrl" and "V" keys together on the keyboard to paste in the Excel chart.
