In my test.xls I have a sheet(Chart1) and I need to do a macro to export the chart and save as *.gif.
Can you help me?

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

I have little experience with macros. However, if I had a chart on its own sheet and wanted to put it into, say, a Word Document, I would:
1. Select the chart so it had the squares in each corner
2. Hold down my Shift Key
3. Click Edit/Copy Picture
4. Click OK.
5. Go to Word Doc and Edit/Paste Special, Picture.
Hope this can help you.
Anyone else?

Dim "Fname" as string. HTH. Dave
Code:
Fname = ThisWorkbook.Path & "\" & "Yourfilename.gif"
ActiveChart.Export Filename:=Fname, FilterName:="GIF"
