Macro to create Bar charts

Hello Experts,

I need some sample to read a table from a word file and generate a bar charts like below:

Chart output
And the data that will be on a word file will be as like below:

Chart Data on Word file
Is there any sample that will be help me in achieving this using Macro code. So that when ever the word file will be generated and someone opens it , the macro code will generate the chart and hide the entire table.

My Sample file will be as like the attached one.

SampleWordFile.odt

In the attached file the "Overall Risk Rating Trend" is the Dynamic chart that need to be generated using the table "Chart Data" at the end of the file.

Once the chart is generated the table should be hidden or removed.

Thanks,

There are some pretty good samples here

This article contains two samples: a basic chart in Word (WordChart.docm), and a pair of files (ExcelWithChart.xlsm and WordChartLinkedToExcel.docm) that show how to have an interactive Word document that uses a chart created in Excel. You can download the code samples from the MSDN Code Gallery.

Say for example I build a html table in a word file with the chart data , and can we read the data from the table and build an chart dynamically.

this is based on the original article I quoted.

reference to the Microsoft Excel 14.0 Object Library

Sub MakeChartFromTable()

Dim myTable As Table
Dim salesChart As Chart
Dim chartWorkSheet As Excel.Worksheet
Dim x As Integer
Dim RowCount As Integer
Dim ColumnCount As Integer
Dim LastColumn As String

For Each myTable In ActiveDocument.Tables
    myTable.Range.Copy
    'Create Chart
    Set salesChart = ActiveDocument.Shapes.AddChart.Chart
    Set chartWorkSheet = salesChart.ChartData.Workbook.Worksheets(1)
    'Determine size of table
    RowCount = myTable.Rows.Count
    ColumnCount = myTable.Columns.Count
    'Determine spreadsheet column letter for last column of table
    If ColumnCount < 26 Then
        LastColumn = Chr(64 + ColumnCount)
    Else
        LastColumn = Chr(Int(ColumnCount / 26) + 64) & Chr((ColumnCount Mod 26) + 64)
    End If
    'Resize chart data area to table size and paste table data
    With chartWorkSheet
        .ListObjects("Table1").DataBodyRange.Delete
        .ListObjects("Table1").Resize chartWorkSheet.Range("A1:" & LastColumn & RowCount)
        .Range("A1:" & LastColumn & RowCount).Select
        .Paste
    End With
    salesChart.ChartData.Workbook.Close
Next

End Sub
