Hi

I import data into Excel from both SQL and Access and generate fairly complex charts in Excel manually.
In the past I have encountered a lot of problems using Excel VBA to automate this so I want to rather apply the imported data range to each chart.
I need a few pointers on the best way to do this so that the chart doesn't lose any of its original structure.

There are different ways. If you have the imports set up as queries then using either structured references (2007 or later) or dynamic named ranges, you shouldn't really need to do anything other than refresh the queries.
Alternatively you can simply alter the data sources of the charts by looping and altering the XValues and Values properties of each series in the charts (I am assuming they are too complex for a simple SetSourceData statement).
