amjad sahi> you may embed the graph into Slide using the API of Aspose.Slides
amjad sahi> first you will create the graph using Aspose.Cells
LaugeW> i see
amjad sahi> then embeds it to powerpoint slide using Aspose.Slides as an ole object
LaugeW> but this is only possible for aspsose.slides? as far as i understood it is not possible in aspose.word?
amjad sahi> or you may take the picture of the chart using Aspose.Cells api
amjad sahi> well you may take the image of the chart using aspose.Cells api
amjad sahi> and then paste the chart image into MS Word
