## How to extract data from chart or graph in Excel?

In Excel, we usually use chart to show data and trend for more clearly viewing, but in sometimes, maybe the chart is a copy and you haven’t the original data of the chart as below screenshot shown. In this case, you may want to extract the data from this chart. Now this tutorial is talking about data extracting from a chart or graph.
Extract data from chart with VBA

#### Extract data from chart with VBA

1. You need to create a new worksheet and rename it as ChartData. See screenshot:

2. Then select the chart you want to extract data from and press Alt + F11 keys simultaneously, and a Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window pops.

3. Click Insert > Module, then paste below VBA code to the popping Module window.

VBA: Extract data from chart.

``````Sub GetChartValues()
'Updateby20220510
Dim xNum As Integer
Dim xSeries As Object
On Error Resume Next
xCount = 2
xNum = UBound(Application.ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Values)
Application.Worksheets("ChartData").Cells(1, 1) = "X Values"
With Application.Worksheets("ChartData")
.Range(.Cells(2, 1), _
.Cells(xNum + 1, 1)) = _
Application.Transpose(ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).XValues)
End With
For Each xSeries In Application.ActiveChart.SeriesCollection
Application.Worksheets("ChartData").Cells(1, xCount) = xSeries.Name
With Application.Worksheets("ChartData")
.Range(.Cells(2, xCount), _
.Cells(xNum + 1, xCount)) = _
Application.WorksheetFunction.Transpose(xSeries.Values)
End With
xCount = xCount + 1
Next
End Sub
``````

4. Then click Run button to run the VBA. See screenshot:

Then you can see the data is extracted to ChartData sheet.

Tip:

1. You can format the cells as you need.

2. The data of the selected chart is extracted to the first cell of the ChartData sheet in default.

 Tip: If you usually use complex charts in Excel, which will be troublesome as you create them very time, here with the Auto Text tool of Kutools for Excel, you just need to create the charts at first time, then add the charts in the AutoText pane, then, you can reuse them in anywhere anytime, what you only need to do is change the references to match your real need.  Click for free download it now.

This doesn't appear to work for a scatter plot as it only extracts one set of "x" data. How can I amend it to extract all "x" data sets?
