CHART INTERACTION ANNOYANCES

PRINT AN EXCEL 97 CHART FROM POWERPOINT

The Annoyance:

I use Excel 97, and I tried to print out a PowerPoint 97 presentation that has an embedded Excel chart—but the page came out blank. This can't be a case of incompatible versions, because both programs were from Office 97. What's going on?

The Fix:

I'll bet you were trying to print the chart at a resolution higher than your printer is capable of. To check, open PowerPoint, choose Tools → Options, and select the Print tab. If the "Print inserted objects at printer resolution" box isn't checked, check it now. You also should ensure that your embedded chart isn't selected when you try to print the slide. To deselect the chart, click any blank spot on the PowerPoint slide.
