Any idea how to change the data range for an Excel chart. I clicked the "Select Data" but it mentioned about the legend entries only. Any idea ?

try with right click on your chart, choose Select data and in Chart data range you should have range the chart is using, edit it in a way you need to extend it.

The Chart Data Range disappears as soon as the data is non contiguous or the data is resorted in the chart

to see the values used go on each serie and click Edit

try to select data range in your sheet and create new chart (the same as you have now, it does not matter, using Insert>Chart).
Then , if you still need, check Select data if you have range in field Chart data range

AXISHK, in the dialog you posted in the screenshot, you need to click on one of the series in the list on the left and then click the Edit button. This will open a dialog where you can adjust the cell range for the series.

Another, easier, way to adjust the chart ranges is to click a column in the chart. You will then see the data in the sheet highlighted and you can drag the highlights with the corner handles to adjust the selection.
