Linked excel chart not updating in powerpoint

08-Sep-2019 03:25

Paste special option does not allow users to edit the charts. However, I am getting a pop up menu asking to update the file in my documents folder. Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead?

Hence, I am unable to use this paste special option. My source i.e excel file is located in my desktop folder.

In the chart below I have clicked once, which selects both X and Y error bars in an XY chart. Any changes you make on the Patterns tab affects both X and Y error bars.

The other two tabs allow you to reapply error bar values.

Bring up the Format Series dialog, by double clicking on the series, by right clicking on the series and choosing Selected Object, by selecting the series and choosing Selected Data Series from the Format menu, or by selecting the series and clicking the shortcut, Ctrl 1 (numeral one).

The dialog has a tab for Y Error Bars, and if it’s an XY data series, there is also a tab for X error bars.

When you click the slide, Power Point will display the chart's background.

A half second later, Power Point will display the first series.

Inserted into the Excel spreadsheet is a Power Point presentation that has previously been linked to graphs in the excel spreadsheet so it updates in line with the excel. I'm copying the graph in Excel and then in Power Point going Paste Special - Microsoft Excel Chart Object.You have to explicitly tell Power Point to work with the chart's elements individually, as follows: Now Power Point knows you want to animate the chart's series.There are three series and Power Point forces you to also animate the chart's background for a total of four animations.One nice feature is that the custom error bar value selection controls are right on the same dialog as everything else.To format error bars, you first select them, then bring up the dialog with a double click, a right click, the Ctrl 1 shortcut, or the Format menu.
