  Exporting Excel® Graphics For QuarkXPress™ Documents - Part One

Some people have asked me, "How do I get a chart from Excel into a Quark document?". There are a couple of ways to do this but the best way is to export the Excel graph as a PostScript® file, then open the PostScript file in Adobe® Illustrator® or other drawing program like Macromedia® FreeHand®, CorelDRAW® or Deneba Canvas™. Once opened in one of these programs, you can convert colors from RGB to CMYK or spot color so the colors will separate properly if the Quark document is intended for printed output. Then you can save the graphic as an EPS file and place this EPS file in the Quark document as a picture.

This tutorial is for QuarkXPress Windows®. Following are the step by step instructions:

  1. Select the graph or chart in Microsoft® Excel.

2. Click File > Print and choose a PostScript printer. If you don't have an actual PostScript printer connected to your computer, don't worry. You can setup a printer that prints to FILE. For more info on how to do this, please check this tutorial for Windows XP and this tutorial for Windows 98.
