I have an excel file that I use as a template. The First tab contains blocks of data a4:b8 with an associated Graph linked to that block below it. Now I have the a4:b8 block being fed by the second tab for data. I have 5 sets of these. I use access to create the data and export it to the second tab which feeds the first tab and the graphs. Well it works great (almost). All five sets of blocks update to the new data no problem however the last two graphs do not update with the new data. If I go to the second tab and copy and paste the same data thats there it then resets the graphs. Any suggestions on how to fix this with access vba code so its done automatically right after I export the data so theres no need to go back in and recopy and paste the data ?

I am assuming I have to open the spreadsheet with code to do the worksheet.calulate or chart.refresh correct? Or can you do it directly with vba?
