Before jumping to the methods of creating a chart in an excel chart sheet, let us first understand what it entails. A ChartSheet represents a chart sheet or a worksheet that only contains a chart.

Whenever a user creates a chart in Excel, the default settings of the software program will embed it into the sheet with other data; however, the user if want can move the chart to a separate sheet. The Chart Sheet class has some data Worksheet functionality, such as margins, tab selection, footers, headers, and print properties, but its primary purpose is to display a single chart. This distinguishes it from standard data worksheets, which can include one or more embedded charts.

In this article, we are going to discuss how to create a chart in an Excel chart sheet. 

Let’s get started now: 

Method: Move the Chart to a Chart Sheet

For creating a chart in an excel chart sheet, we must have some data. In this example, we are taking the sales volume as seen below. 


In this method, we create a chart in the worksheet, then will move it to a new chart sheet.

  1. Create a chart in the current sheet.

  2. Click on the chart and then you’ll see the respected options related to the chart on the top.

  3. Click on the Move Chart option. Choose the option "New Sheet" in the "Move Chart" window. Change the chart name here if necessary.

  4. Press OK.
    Now, we have moved our chart onto a separate chart sheet.
