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?

    Hi,

    Did you mean you want to Convert Text to Table in Word?

    If yes, please go to Insert- Tables- Covert Text to Table...:

    There isn't an easy way to repurpose a Word table as a chart data table.

    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:
