Embedding an Excel Chart in a Word Document

Microsoft Word button.
2. Open the workbook LHCServiceReferrals , which is located in the Tutorial.01\Tutorial
folder included with your Data Files. The workbook opens with a pie chart in the active

3. Click File on the menu bar, and then click Save As to display the Save As dialog box.

Embedding an Excel Chart in a Word Document
Caitlin wants her letter to include the pie chart showing the current distribution of services
provided by Lifestyles Home Care. The data for the chart will not change, so you’ll embed
the pie chart from the source file into the Word document. That way, if Caitlin wants to
resize or modify the format of the pie chart in the letter, she can make these changes using
Excel commands without affecting the source file. (Recall that when you embed an
object, you automatically have access to the object’s source program commands and fea-
tures to manipulate the embedded object in the destination program.)
