So far we have only seen charts on the same worksheet as the source data (embedded charts). However, you can also move a chart to a separate sheet that only contains a chart (chart sheet).

To move a chart to a chart sheet, execute the following steps.

  1. Select the chart.
  2. On the Design tab, in the Location group, click Move Chart.

Move a Chart in Excel

The Move Chart dialog box appears.

  1. Click New sheet and enter a name.
  2. Click OK.

Click New sheet

Result:

Chart Sheet in Excel

Note: repeat these steps, but instead of New sheet at step 3, click Object in, to move the chart back to the same worksheet as the source data.
