Now use Bernards Ctrl-drag technique, or a normal right click "Move
or copy" to copy the sheet and the chart should update the formulas to
the worksheet it is embedded on (not back to the original).

If your charts are on worksheets other than the ones where their source
data is, then you need to do something similar to what Jon suggests for
chart sheets, ie to select the sheet with the chart on it and the sheet
with the data on it and copy them all at once. The new copied sheet with
the chart will then point at the new copied sheet with the data, rather
than the old one.

Hope this combination gets you sorted out.

Just tried your suggestion. Didn't work for me. Copies the sheet with the
data, but not the chart. Or may be I am doing sth wrong? I followed you steps
in 2007, tried in 1 workbook dragging Sheet1 to the end - creates copy with
the data-no raph
Tried between 2 files - same result - copied sheet with data on it, but
didnt transfer the graph... Any Excel settings I am missing?

Is it possible this to be done with VBA, as instead "Sheet1" there is
dynamic reference to the sheets name in
.Chart.SetSourceData Source:=Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A3:G14")
something like the formula
My VBA knowledge is limited, and I cant make this to work so far...

Any suggestions will be appreciated

Are you copying by Copy and Paste?
Here is a way that makes a new duplicate sheet
Open the two workbooks and in XL2003 use Windows | Arrange or in Xl2007 use
View |Arrange to have them side by side
If you are talking about one workbook just follow from here
Click on the tab of the worksheet holding the data and charts
Hold down the CTRL key and drag the tab from one book to the other (you will
see an icon looking like a piece of paper with a + sign) --- with one file
drag from one place to another in the tab line-up

I have a worksheet with ten charts on it. I need to copy the worksheet
all its data and related charts to new sheets or files so I have a page
every day, with different data entered every day. But when I copy the
worksheet with embedded charts and paste it into a new file, the charts
their source data from the original worksheet, not the new one.
The source data Value box is written as such, ='03-09-10'!$D$12

any ideas?


Been wondering what had happened, with my copying of sheets with graphs, all of a sudden didn't work, i went and played with Advaned settings didn't i, but now fixed again all copies over graph and Macro buttons that work. Cheers
