How do I place multiple charts in the same sheet?

I'm trying to place several charts in the same sheet, but I can't make it
work. I don't want to print one page for each chart, instead i want to
reduce the number of pages by placing 4 or more charts in the same sheet.

How can I do it?

It might be easier to embed the charts in a blank worksheet. This way
you can align the chart edges with the cell boundaries (hold Alt while
dragging and the edges will snap to the boundaries).

The "Location" that bj mentioned is found on step 4 of the chart wizard
or in the Chart menu. Choose "As object in" and select any existing
sheet (worksheet or chart) from the dropdown list.

I get the sense that you are not having trouble creating separate charts on
the same sheet so much as printing them together. If that is the case, you
can do one of the following:
- instead of selecting the charts themselves, select the range of cells that
contain the charts, or
- select one chart, then hold down the Ctrl key while you select others you
want to plot.
I think the second method does essentially the same thing as the first, so
if you have four charts arranged in a 'square', you cannot select the two
charts in diagonal corners without the other two printing as well, but you
should be able to get what you want by rearranging them and/or playing around
a bit.

Good luck!

I get the impression that your problem is not so much getting multiple
charts on one sheet, but printing more than one per page. If that is indeed
the case, you can do either one of the following:
- instead of selecting a chart, select the range of cells containing the
charts you want to print, or
- select one chart, then hold down the Ctrl key while you select the others
that you want to plot.
Since Excel still defines a rectangular print range if you use the second
method, you might find that some charts print that you did not select.
However, by re-arranging them and/or playing around a bit (with scaling, page
breaks, etc.), you should be able to get what you want.

Good Luck!
