The following C# program shows how to Export a Chart from Excel file to a Picture file like BMP, JPG, GIF etc.

The following C# source code using Microsoft Excel 12.0 Object Library. In the previous section, we saw how to import Microsoft Excel 12.0 Object Library in the C# project.

chartPage.Export(@"C:\excel_chart_export.bmp","BMP",null );
