Chart function in Word

sect Inner 100 Reputation points

In Excel, charts can be used or pasted into Word, but the format in Excel is not as good as Word.

May I ask if it is possible to use the data from the Word table itself (as the data source) in Word to generate graphics. If possible, what should I do?

    You can insert a chart in Word using Insert>Chart, but it will use its own data table for the chart.

    Here's a page with a workaround using VBA, but it's a fair bit of work:
