Deleting a chart

Any embedded chart or chart sheet can be deleted from a worksheet. A chart sheet is deleted in the same manner a worksheet is deleted. This section discusses how to delete an embedded chart.

To delete a chart:

  • Click anywhere on the white space of the chart area to select the chart.
  • Press the Delete key on your keyboard.

If you have difficulty deleting a chart, click anywhere outside of the chart and then select the chart again.
