Most of the time, you must start from scratch and then insert a new chart on your PowerPoint slide. This of course brings up Excel with some dummy data — and indeed you can type in your own data to replace this dummy data. However, what if you already have some data that’s within an Excel sheet — why can’t you use that data to create your PowerPoint chart? Why does PowerPoint in fact insist that you use the new Excel sheet and not any of your existing Excel sheets? And even if you must use that new Excel sheet, where does that sheet reside — and can’t you bring in your own data to that sheet in a way that does not make you type everything all over again? Wow — that’s a bunch of very genuine questions — this article will attempt to provide you with some answers!

Learn how to use already available Excel data to create charts in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.
