Linking a defined range to a picture in PowerPoint


I know this is a long shot, but I'm hoping SOMEBODY has 
the answer....

I need to create a power point presentation that links to 
an excel workbook.  The reason I need to link it is 
because the numbers will change monthly, and the 
presentation is distributed monthly.

So, I need to create a presentation that will:

1) have excel worksheets in it that link to defined ranges 
in a workbook.
2) HOPEFULLY have the Pow.Pt. worksheet appear as a bitmap
(if not thats ok)
3) allow the Pow.Pt. SS (or the picture) to link to the SS 
so that the image will change every month.

I know it's a long shot, but any help would be GREATLY

Change link between form and subform
I have a form with a subform in it. I would like to change the way they are linked so instead of linking from Old ID, they link to New ID I don't know anything about code, is there a way to just change the cell it relies on? Thanks C Confused87 - Bring up the properties of the subform, and change the values in 'Link Child Fields' and 'Link Master Fields' on the Data tab of the properties dialog box. Make sure you have the subform selected, not the form within the subform. -- Daryl S "Confused87" wrote: > I have a form with...

How can I get only visible cells using range.get_Value?
Hi All! I’ve a code on C# that reads the data from Excel’s spreadsheet. I use Excel.Worksheet.get_Range method to get a Excel.Range object like this: Excel.Range range = Worksheet.get_Range("A1", Missing.Value); After I got the range I read the data into a multi-dimensional array as following: Object[,] saRet; saRet = (System.Object[,])range.get_Value(Missing.Value); Everything works fine until I want to get only visible cells from the spreadsheet. So I use the code: range = range.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible, Missing.Value); When I try to invoke the range...

Linked Table Manager in ACCESS

Linked Tables Over A LAN
Hi, I have a problem with a PC that is sharing an Access database over a LAN. I'm hoping someone may be able to give me a little advice. By the way, I'm a bit of an amatuer so go easy on the technical terminology ;-). I've got four PCs networked through a router which provides internet access. Two PCs are running XP Pro and two are running Vista Business 32bit. One Vista machine holds my full database while the other PCs have a similar database but with tables linked to the first machine.

email links in Publisher pdf
Why won't Publisher 2007 convert my email links correctly when saved in pdf format? It puts "mail to:" in twice automatically. It is converting website links without a problem. If memory serves the Office 2007 SP1 fixed this in Publisher. The SP2 is also now available. There have been some reports of not being able to open existing Publisher files after installing it, and a report that a fix for that bug is due by the end of the might want to wait to install SP2 until after the first of the month, or just install SP1.

Chart template and links

Return Range Based on Cell Value
This topic has been covered in varying degrees, but the problem is that I do not want to sum or count the range. I want the range itself returned as the value. For instance in A1 is 7. i.e. July In B1-B12 are dates 201101, 201102, etc. I need a formula that will count out the cells and return the range based on that value in A1. In this case it would return B1:B7. This of course would be nested in another formula.

Linking to ODBC Linked Tables
Hi: I wonder if you have any suggestions for this. We have moved our Access tables into Oracle and have created a MS Access Database that links to these ODBC tables. Each of our users has a local copy of our Reporting Database that formerly linked to Access tables, but now we want them to link to the Ms Access Database which contains the linked ODBC tables on our shared drive. In trying to link to already linked ODBC tables, Access gives an error and will not link to these tables. Is there a way to let our users link to the Access database that contains the linked ODBC tables? Any...

Tightening up range in a Line Chart
This appears pretty basic, but I can not find a solution. I am comparing two sets of similar data which are between 800 and 1600. The Line Chart I have created allows for data on the vetical axis from 0 to 1800. The differences in the data would be more efficiently demonstrated if the range of the vertical axis were tightened to match the range of the data. Is there a way of doing this? I am working in Excel 2007. Thanks, Dano Format Axis/ Scale and choose your preferred min & max values instead of the automatically chosen ones. -- David Biddulph "Dano" <db_murray@y...

Linked Graphs from Excel
I have linked graphs from excel into my publisher document using Paste Special. The problem is that when they paste in they reshape (I have pie charts and they come in publisher looking like tall skinny ovals). I can fix the shape of the charts manually after pasting them in, but when I update the links the reshaping reverts to its original, incorrect size. Any suggestions on how I can use the linking to excel and not have to resize every time I update? "Paste Special" as what format? Have you tried an image format? -- Mary Sauer MSFT MVP http...

See if cell value appears within a value range given by another cell.
In one column (b), have the figure of 470 In another column (a), a cell contains values containing a number, a dash and another number: "425 - 490" I need to check to determine if the number 470 is found within a range defined by a cells contents. In this case, yes, it's equal to or between them. (The dash may or may not have spaces around it. ..could be 425-490, or 425 - 490.) The column (b) item can be the 425, or the 490 and any number in between. Need to do a vlookup to find if the 470 is present in any of the assorted ranges contained in column (a). Thank...
