Description Markus Elfring 2020-01-13 10:49:04 UTC
I suggest to add the link “https://help.libreoffice.org/6.4/en-GB/text/scalc/guide/cellreferences.html” for more helpful information around the topic “Referencing other sheets” to the documentation “To specify a data range”.

Changing component to Documentation
Comment 2 Olivier Hallot 2020-05-13 21:36:06 UTC
Please explain the steps you want to achieve. It appears not possible to have a data range directly from another file, except by pasting the data into cells in the file that holds the chart.
