When you create a chart in Word you are actually running a separate program called MS Graph.
This is the same program used in Word.

When you insert a chart, the data on which you want to use is displayed in a special window called the DataSheet

You can choose to import a linked file which will remain linked to its source file and be capable of being updated when the source is updated.
Or you can import an embedded file, which will remain part of the Word document which remains connected to the creating program (Excel) but not to the source.

You will need to change the sample data with your own.
