You could create a user-defined custom chart type with the colour schem
of the presentation and apply it to the embedded chart.

I am not aware of any in-built color synchronization between powerpoin
and excel, though.

when you say "A user-defined custom chart type"

Is this "Chart>Chart type>Custom types>User-defined" ?

If yes. 
1. Create the same type of graph with MS Graph.
2. Add as user-defined.
3. [and what should I do? How could I apply it to an 
embeded graph?]

If no. Will you explain a bit more? Appreciate if you 
could tell me step by step.

Thanks for your help

Old Excel doc + PW Protection
Hello everyone, I am trying to open an old Excel document (was probably written with Excel 4 or 5) in Excel for OS X, that have password protection on (Excel ask for a password everytime I open it, and of course I know the Password).

Linking many EXCEL tables into a long WORD document
Would anyone have direct experience with linking lots of Excel tables into complicated Word reports - say 100 tables into a 100 page document? I tried this years ago shortly after OLE came out, but the document's links got confused, with Excel occasionally getting confused about which worksheet tab and range belonged in which Word table. This was not a case of my error, nor of corrupted files due to crashes, but was confirmed as a problem with Excel by a person knowledgable of its codes and bugs back then. Needless to say, I stopped aiming at having these live links in my docum...

Modify existing custom cell format (Excel 2000)
I have a worksheet that includes a number of custom formats that are applied throughout to various cells. Is it possible to change an existing custom format so that all those cells that use it are automatically changed. For example, one of these formats is of type 0.00 "Deg" and I want to change it so that cells using this format show values with the degree symbol "�" instead. Since Excel doesn't seem to have a "find and replace" format feature, how can I make such a global change without individually selecting each applicable cell and applying a new format? ...

Embedded Images
If I embed an image on a form or a report does that mean I no longer have to keep the directory that contains the images? In other words if I load my Access application on another computer will the images still show up without me having to load all of the images as well? Is there any advantage embedding as opposed to linking? Thanks DS > If I embed an image on a form or a report does that mean I no longer have > to keep the directory that contains the images?

External Links
I've inherited an Excel 97 workbook that seems to have links to external sources that I don't have. I've found the links listed on the Edit-Links menu, however I can't find the source documents listed in any formulas in the workbook. There are a lot of charts in the workbook. Could one of them be linked in some way? I've looked up embedded objects, but I'm not sure if that's what I'm dealing with. Any thoughts would be very appreciated.

Excel cell formatting #2
Hi, Is it possible to formal a particular group(s) of cells such that all numeric entries are always expressed as negative e.g an entry of 150 will be reflected in the cell as -150. Thx, Don- Hi Don! You can use: Format > Cells > Custom Format Type the string -# But remember that this only "looks" negative. It's stored as a positive. Also, if you type in -150 you'll get --150 unless you use the format string -#;+# Here, the positive entries get formatted with -150 and negative with +150. It'll confuse most users and I'd look for better approaches t...

Question about Excel (Office) auditing/changes
I have a document that will need to be posted on a website available for users to download & change/approve. The approval process will not make any changes at all to the document.

Excel VBA
Hi VBAers, Rows are able to be created via a userform via a cmdAdd command button. My code to add rows works fine but I want to write extra code to make it check if row 29 has just been saved and then present a msgbox (stating not allowed to go any further) and ALSO not allow any further row additions (via the cmdAdd on userform). I don't know how to make it not allow any further. I suspect I need to set up variables like currentrow & check if currentrow is row 29 but I don't know how to go about it. Can someone please advise how to do this? If you can look at a single cell to...

Handling concurrent access with excel spreadsheets
We have a scenario in my group where one user may be updating a spreadsheet, and 3 or 4 others may be accessing it in read-only mode at the same time. When all is said and done, it is not uncommon for nobody to be able to get into the sheet in update mode, even after all users who had been in the sheet have exited. This seemed to become an issue with the introduction of Windows XP. Short of trying to convince people to only go in one at a time, does anyone have any concurrent access tips to offer? Or, is there a way to inquire on all enqueues against a given sheet and then ...
