The ChartSheet host item is a worksheet in Excel that contains only a chart and exposes events.

When you add a chart sheet at design time as a new sheet in your Microsoft Office Excel document-level customization project, Visual Studio Tools for Office automatically creates a ChartSheet host item.

Although a ChartSheet host item is a worksheet in Excel, you cannot add any controls to the chart sheet. If you want to have other controls on a worksheet with a chart, do not use a chart sheet. Instead, you can place a chart as an embedded object on a worksheet by using the Chart host control. For more information, see Chart Control.
