    do you need to convert it? You can just use \includegraphics to include the excel generated image. – David Carlisle Apr 20 '15 at 20:07
  • MetaFile to eps converter worked for me with powerpoint graphics so I think it can also work with excel pie charts. Already suggested at tex.stackexchange.com/a/186213/1952 – Ignasi May 20 '15 at 21:16

    If you really, really, really want piecharts, why not generate them in LaTeX. Convert your xcl spreadsheet to csv format and then use a package such as datatool (datapie) to generate the pie chart. – user10274 Jun 20 '15 at 4:29

I've used this workflow in the past for moving large numbers of graphs from Excel to a Latex document:

From Excel, print the chart to an .eps file format using a generic postscript printer device. In Latex, embed the .eps file.

Here's an online resource that has templates to get started: http://embedded.eecs.berkeley.edu/concurrency/latex/latexWithEPS.html

  • In newer versions of ms office pdf export is available. – Chris H Sep 18 '15 at 7:13
