Copying charts

When you copy a chart, all of the chart items are copied along with the legend. You might want to create a copy of a chart and then add more information to it.


To copy charts, complete the following steps:
  1. Click anywhere on the background of the chart that you want to copy to clear any selected items.
  2. Click the Home tab, and then in the Clipboard group, click Copy > Copy Chart.
  3. Open a new blank chart. Right-click anywhere on the chart background and click Paste.
  4. You can paste the chart into a different application as an OLE object.
