## Description

This X-Function inserts the chosen graph(s) into specified cell in a worksheet.

Inserted graphs can be either embedded or linked. When a graph is embedded, it is moved into the worksheet cell. You can open the graph again by double-clicking on the cell. When an open, embedded graph is closed, there is no prompt to Hide or Delete since the graph still exists as an embedded graph. When a graph is linked, it will not be moved into the cell. However, you can double-click the image of the graph in the cell, and the source graph window and the folder in which it resides will become active.
