Luisa, from your comment it looks like you wish to have MATLAB figure exported to excel with all its properties such as rotate, pan, zoom. If that's the case, try MATLAB compiler for excel add-in. Let me know if it helps.

Is there any way to upload the graph in that particular excel sheet from where program read the data?

and what if we have 3 sheets in one excel?

@Fredrik: Yes, it is possible. I am uploading improved version of this file.


Is there a way to get the plot in sheet 2, 3 or possibly n?
