Hi :)
In Writer

Insert - Object - Chart

seems to do something and then right-click on the chart and have a look at data-range or something. 
 In the Draw guide there is a chapter about working with Objects and maybe that might help?

Someone else asked a similar question to this a few weeks ago and i don't think we were able to 
help him much either :(
Apols and regards from
Tom :)

Hi Cor,

Thanks for the info.

I've still not managed to work out how to do this!

I had used OLE linking succesfully to insert other spreadsheets into writer
and they work fine (but doesn't OLE obsolete DDE?).

When I've selected the chart and paste special there is no DDE link option.

Thus I've tried anchoring the chart to a cell and copying that cell. Paste
special does then have a DDE option, but it just pastes a link to the empty
cell and doesn't include the chart.

I wonder if using DDE linking to link the actual cells into writer,
generate the table locally in writer would work - though I'd need a method
to "hide" the actual cells in writer. Is there a method to do this?

Thanks in advance!

To insert:
- Menu/Insert/Ole Object - Create from file, mark Link to file.
  Select the file.

To update:
- Menu/Edit/Link - update.

Or another way:
- Menu/Insert/Ole Object - Create new.
- Open the new object (double click), and paste the area from the spreadsheet including the data and the graph.
- Paste.
- Copy the data in original spreadsheet.
- Paste special - link.

The graph is from inserted object.
The data are linked to the original spreadsheet.

Miguel Ángel.
