Basicaly, to save an XL shart as GIF file, you must save the whole wokbook as html page through "save as". This will create a directory containing each graph sheet as a GIF file and plenty of other stuff including a css style sheet.

If you have several graphs in your XL template and using DDE, you may wish to have a VBA macro in the XL template to do the "save as" and run the macro from Sas.

Following is à link to an XL site that gives on example of VBA code to export a Chart as GIF file. (I tested it on XL 2000, works fine !) goto ""
