I have created several pie charts. I am trying to link the pie chart so that if I click on the portion of the chart, it links you back to the data on a seperate worksheet. How can I do this?
Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

You will need to do a work around for this.

Insert a Text Box onto the place on the Pie Chart you want a link

Then right click in the Text Box and choose to insert a Hyperlink.

When making the Hyperlink, choose on the left "Place in Document"

you can then tell it which Sheet and Cell the Hyperlink Links to.

If you have any difficulties at all, please do not hesitate to let me know so I can assist you further

Thank you

Hi Richard,

thanks for your expertise. I am not quite able to successfully place a text box (esp since the area coverered by the pie chart is more pie shape rather than square.

Key areas to report from is the “disposition” (actual status counts) according to the level of priority.

Most critical, the High and Medium breakout or summary.


The spreadsheet is the direction I was hoping to head in… the dashboard really depicts what I’m trying to gather, however I’ve had to manually plug the data in manually. If you have a better way or something prettier I’m all for it. I do have a master spreasheet that has the bible of facts, I just need to merge that data in.


As mentioned, I’d love to understand how to set up some sort of linkage on the dashboard for reporting and have it link to the data.

I’m going bald pulling my hair out on it J.


I will be managing this data as it comes in and I begin to track this project.

The Site Id’s are not critical information, its rally about the counts and the disposition statuses.

Thanks Joe

Have a look at the green part on 161 vulnerabilities.

you see a box there, click it and thats the hyperlink.

I made it to Cell A1 on another sheet, but you can make it whereever you wish.

Using my previous instructions, try to make another one and Let me know the results please

Thank you
