When you insert a chart in newer versions of PowerPoint, you might notice that Excel pops up with some dummy data for your chart. You then change the data within the Excel sheet to auto-update the chart within PowerPoint. What do you do when you want to edit the underlying data after a week, a month, or even a year after you created that chart? Simple. You just summon Excel again following the steps explained in the following tutorials.
