Default how to copy sheet with charts without link to original data

I have a worksheet with ten charts on it. I need to copy the worksheet with
all its data and related charts to new sheets or files so I have a page for
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 pull
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?

Default how to copy sheet with charts without link to original data


Hi Esty,

Probably wont help you, but I had similar problem, I posted few days
ago. Didn't resolved it yet, but Jon suggested a tool on his website.
Doesn't do all the job, but still half way there - allows you to
automate the renaming. Didnt tried it my self - I did it the hard way
renaming 3 sheets 50 tabs each (gosh there were 150 graphs ), - but
if it works it will save you some time

that was my thread:

http://www.microsoft.com/communities...sloc=en-us&p=1

the link to the tool:
http://peltiertech.com/WordPress/how...ries-formulas/

Not sure how helpful that is, but it is at least an option.
If you find any better (automated method) of renaming the series of the
chart, let us know. I'll appreciate it.

Sam

Default how to copy sheet with charts without link to original data

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

Default how to copy sheet with charts without link to original data

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
=MID(CELL("filename"),FIND("]",CELL("filename"))+1,255)
My VBA knowledge is limited, and I cant make this to work so far...

Any suggestions will be appreciated

Thanks

Sam

Sorry, I cannot see anyway to solve your problem
I have just repeated the exercise and it really does work
My chart is non SHeet2 and when I click the data series in the chart, the
formula bar displays
=SERIES(,Sheet2!$A$7:$A$11,Sheet2!$B$7:$B$11,1)
After by 'copy by dragging tab', on Sheet2 (2) I see
=SERIES(,Sheet2 (2)!$A$7:$A$11,Sheet2!$B$7:$B$11,1)
So the reference to the sheet does no seem to be holding it up
I cannot see anything in Options that would foul us up
Want to send me a sample file ?

Is the chart embedded in the sheet? Or is it a standalone chart sheet?

If it's a chart sheet, then select the data worksheet, hold Ctrl and
select the chart sheet, then hold Ctrl and drag both to the other workbook.

Default how to copy sheet with charts without link to original data

Sam
You need to enable an option for this to work if the charts are embedded
on the worksheets where the data is, rather than on a chart sheet of
their own.
Go to Excel options Advanced Cut, Copy and Paste section.
Enable "Cut, copy, and sort inserted objects with their parent cells"

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.

I know this is an old thread, but I just found a solution to this and I've been wrestling with this problem for months now so I wanted to share it:

1.Create a New Workbook
2. Copy the worksheet to the new workbook
(right click: Move or Copy, select create a copy and put it in the new workbook)
3. Change the name of the worksheet to its new name in the new workbook
4. Move the newly named worksheet back to the old workbook


The chart references will point to the data on the newly named worksheet.

I was reading this today as I was having the same problem. However, I have found that if I use the "Links" option under the edit menu, and change the source of the offending link to the new workbook containing the copied data and charts, all the links are changed.
