Hello Crystal_De_Souza,

There is no simple way to do this. Although MS-Chart and Excel use exactly the same charting library, you cannot convert from one to the other. You will have to display the data sheet, copy-and-paste that to Excel, and then recreate the chart there.

If you need to do this often and if you are a really competent VB programmer, you can probably automate some of this, especially as the object model is compatible, but it will be quite a project in itself.

Cheers!
