    I was attempting to create a pie chart and clicked the pie chart icon.
    However, did not want it embedded in the same Work sheet, so I clicked on the
    new work sheet tab. It did not work and somehow I must have triggered
    something else and all icons on both my insert tab and data tab is greyed out.

  2. Hi,

    It sounds like you were in 2007? In that case create the chart in the
    spreadsheet and then right-click the border of the chart and choose Move
    chart. choose the New Sheet option...

    Regarding the grayed out items - you are in Group mode because more than one
    tab is selected. Right-click any sheet tab and choose Ungroup Sheets.
