Copy Just Chart Formats

Friday, September 1st, 2006 by | Filed Under: MS Excel, MS Office Help

Copy Just Chart Formats

Ever have a chart in MS Excel with what you considered the perfect formatting?

You’ve chosen just the right color combinations, font type and size, font alignment, spacing, etc. and you wouldn’t change a thing, no matter how much time you have to work on it.

Wish that the formatting could be applied to other Excel charts without all the individual changes it requires? Something like a Format Painter feature for your charts maybe?

If that’s something you’ve ever wished for, then I’m happy to make at least one of your wishes come true and I think that you’ll be surprised by just how easy it can be accomplished.

  • First thing you’ll need to do is select the chart with the formatting to be copied.
  • Now copy the chart.
  • Select the chart that needs the new formatting.
  • Use the Edit menu, Paste Special choice and select the Formats choice.

  • Click OK.

Voila! Formatting copied, but data left intact!
