Graphs are the ideal way to visually represent data from a spreadsheet. If you want to insert a chart from an existing spreadsheet into a Docs or Slides file, you can sync it with Google Sheets.
First, make sure you have a Google Sheets spreadsheet that contains at least one chart. You can follow our instructions to insert the chart manually or by using the Google Explore feature.

In this tutorial, we’ll be using Google Docs to sync charts from tables, although the process is identical for slides.
Launch your browser, go to Google Docs, and then open the document you want to sync the chart from Sheets to.
Click Insert > Chart > From Sheet to open the chart selection window.
This will open a list of all spreadsheets saved in your Google Drive. Find the table with the chart you want and double click on it.
All graphs in the spreadsheet will appear in the window. Select the one you want and then click «Import» to add it to your document. If there are no charts on the sheet, just click the back button and choose another file.
