Inserting SmartArt into Word Documents
Adding Charts and
When you insert a
chart into Word, you
store its data in Excel.
Excel closes, and the window containing Word expands to its full size. Your
chart displays the labels and data you entered in Excel.
If you need to change the information in your chart, select Chart Tools | Design ➝ Edit
Data (Alt, JC, D) to reopen Excel to edit the chart’s data. To change a chart’s type,
click the chart to display its frame. Right-click the frame and, from the shortcut
menu that appears, select Change Chart Type. This opens a dialog box that looks just
like Insert Chart; select a type and style of chart, and then click OK. Word converts
the current chart to that style.
To delete a chart from a Word document, click the chart to select it, and then press
Delete or Backspace.
