Embed an Excel Chart in Powerpoint

If you have a chart that you've already created in another program, like Excel, you can just import it into PowerPoint.

Import a Chart

  1. Click the Insert tab.
  2. Expand the Text group.
  3. Select Object.
    Import Charts
  4. Select the Create from file radio button.
  5. Click the Browse button.
    Import Charts
  6. Select the file with the chart you want to import.
  7. Click OK.
    Import Charts
  8. (Optional) Check the Link check box.

    If you link the chart, it will automatically update in PowerPoint if a change is made to it in Excel.

  9. Click OK.
    Import Charts

The chart is imported to the slide and can be moved and resized just like any other PowerPoint object.
