I have a workbook with multiple worksheets with data in the same format in each.  I would like to take a chart formatted for the first worksheet, and copy it to all of the other worksheets to utilize the same formating but use the data in its own worksheet.  

I know I can copy the first chart and paste with source formatting to the other worksheets, and then change the source data in each chart.  Is there an easier way to accomplish this?

Yes,

on a sheet that has only data, start recording a Macro. Build your chart, and stop recording. Now you have a VBA macro that builds charts on whatever worksheet you happen to be on. Just add a loop to your macro, like:

For each sht in worksheets
   range("A1").select
   --- recorded macro code ---
next sht

That should do it.

u simply create one sheet ( i.e. the first sheet) the way u have

now simply create a duplicate copy of that sheet
to achieve this, just drag the sheet bar from the bottom holding the ctrl key
thats all,

repeat the above step for any new sheet u like to create.

i hope this will save your time and give u results as desired
