    Creating a PowerPoint chart from Excel source data?

    Hi,

    I have data in an Excel file, and I would like to create a PPT slide with a column chart on it.

    Here's the important thing: I need the actual Excel data self-contained within the PowerPoint. In the past when I've created Excel charts and copy the chart to PPT, it links to the original file. But when I create a chart within PPT, it has an internal Excel data file that always stays with the PPT file. Any idea how to do that with VBA?

    There is also some formatting I'd like to bring over to the chart, but I can cross that bridge later.

    Are you "linking" instead of pasting your Excel into PP?

    One test is worth a thousand opinions.
