in thread Extract Excel graphs


let me be clear

I have an excel which has number of sheets in it. Each sheet has number of graphs. I want a script which can extract all the graphs from all the sheets in the above mentioned excel as image.

    The functionality to export or copy the graphs as images lies in the Excel application. You're best bet is to extract the images on a Windows machine. If that is absolutely not possible, then try the API.

    Depending how many charts there are, and if you have access to a Windows machine, it might actually be faster to just copy them all to the clipboard, one by one, and paste them into Paint or Photoshop or IrfanView or whatever. This works quite well.

    Good luck!
