After insertion, the chart looks and behaves like a regular think-cell chart that has been created in Power Point: Please refer to Adding and removing labels and Styling the chart to learn how to configure and style the chart.

Note: If you use colored cell backgrounds in Excel, you can set those as the segment fill color in the linked chart by enabling in the chart’s color scheme control (see Color scheme).

Simply click the menu in Excel’s think-cell toolbar and click on the chart in Power Point that you wish to link to.

When data in Excel changes, you can either update the charts on command or have think-cell do the update automatically.If you are unsure about the exact layout required, simply insert a new chart of the desired type in Power Point and refer to the layout of its datasheet.Then select the desired chart type from the menu in Excel’s think-cell toolbar: When you click on this menu item in Excel, the Power Point window is activated.This can be especially powerful when you combine it with Excel’s conditional formatting.

As well as creating a new chart, you can link a selected data range in your Excel workbook to an existing chart in a Power Point presentation.

Any additional text from the Excel data source will be truncated.
