At the moment is not possible with PHPExcel to use Chart, so i recoment is the library called pChart google it and you going to find many info and examples...

What i do with pchart is to create an .jpg with the info and then i add the .jpg to my excel that i generate with PHPExcel.

I have done a pChart graph and I'd like to render it:


And then import to a PHPExcel's drawing:


Both declarations are in the same file data_to_excel.php. When I separate them, they works, but in the one file $objDrawing could not see the picture pointed in the path and shows an error. I don't know what I am doing wrong. Could someone help me? Is there any different way to export directly a chart from pChart to the PHPExcel's spreadsheet?

Thanks & Regards,
