Delete source data, keep graph

Hello,

I have the following question:

In Excel I have 2 sheets, called 'sheet1' and 'sheet2'. In sheet1 is placed a graph, the source data for the graph is placed in sheet2. Now what I want to do is to delete sheet2 (the source data) and keep the graph in sheet1. This because I don't want that the end user can change the values and I don't want to save 45000 calculations (to save memory). When I normally delete the source data sheet, I will also lose the graph.

So is there a way to save the graph and without the source data? So that the graph would be something like a picture, that can't be changed anymore.

I hope I described the question properly, English is not my native language.
 

Excel Facts

Format cells as date
Select range and press Ctrl+Shift+3 to format cells as date. (Shift 3 is the # sign which sort of looks like a small calendar).
Copy it to MS WORD and then copy it back to an Excel spreadsheet.

English is my native language but I think you are better at it.

You can also copy the pictue in Excel. I just tried copying a chart, then pasting it to another filem deleting the source and this works.

Just hold down the shift key, go to edit - copy picture, then paste special to where you want it - of course, it is now only a picture so data can be removed on source page.
