The Select Chart Template function allows you to select the Chart Template that will be applied when a chart is refreshed. A Chart Template contains a set of rules (e.g. conditional formats) that are applied to a chart. Chart Templates are used to automate chart formatting so that no manual editing is required after a data refresh.

The Select Chart Template function is a step within the Import Wizard. For existing charts, the Select Chart Template function is accessed using the Refresh Properties button.
