Using charts in Words

I’m evaluating Aspose for our needs and I’m not sure if I can do this.

I want to produce a document with some charts in it. I think I can create the charts I need via the object model with some work. However, I’d much rather create the charts initially using MS Word, and use Aspose to read that document and just replace the data with my data. Creating and formatting the charts would be much faster in Word. I don’t think Aspose supports this currently. If not, what do you suggest I do? Attached is a Word doc with one example of the charts I need to create/populate.

Thank you!

As an afterthought - if these features are not supported in Words, are they supported in Cells? I suppose we could create all our charts in an Excel document instead…

Thanks for your inquiry.

if you would like to modify chart data, we suggest you to recreate new series instead of change them.

It would be great if you please share complete detail of your use case along with your requirement. We will then answer your query accordingly.

Unfortunately, Aspose.Words does not fully support this feature. Please share the detail of this requirement. We will then log this feature in our issue tracking system.

Aspose.Cells does support formatting of chart. Please share your input and expected output documents along with some detail of your use case. We will then provide you code example according to your requirement.

Thank you. I spent some time playing with Cells and it seems I can manipulate the charts in an existing spreadsheet pretty nicely. I was able to change the data in an existing spreadsheet and the chart I had updated properly. I’ll do some more work with Cells and will certainly post more questions should I have any.

Thanks again.
