Attaching Chart to Email?
I have an Excel spreadsheet, and derived from it 5 charts.
How can I attach one of the charts to an email to send to
(I know how to attach the whole spreadsheet, and the
associated charts, but I don't want to send the spreadsheet
and the other 4 charts, because they contain data not
appropriate to share with the email recipient.)

I know this is simple, but I cannot remember how. I want to copy a chart into
another worksheet, but do not want to keep the links, just the picture and
data as it is.
Select the chart, hold Shift while clicking on the Edit menu, choose Copy
Picture, and use the On Screen and Picture options. Go to the place you want
the chart image to appear, and use plain old Paste (Ctrl+V).

"archsmooth" <firstname.lastname@example.org> ...Background color on a tab page with XP theme
I have a dialog with a tab control on it. Tab pages are created from dialog
resources. When the tab control displays, the tabs are "white" and the
background of the tab pages is the COLOR_BTNFACE color. When I call
EnableThemeDialogTexture for the dialog page object, now the background of
the dialog appears to be "white" while the tab page has a white gradient
getting darker toward the bottom. This leaves an outline around where my
dialog resource is being displayed. How do I get the gradient to come out
right? Do I need to call DrawThemeBackground on the page?...bar chart prints 1 unwanted horizontal row of dots & tick marks?
Office Excel 2007. Anyone encounter this? The sheet I'm printing is 19
columns wide by 69 rows high with portrait orientation. Bar chart is set
between row 25 and 47 horizontally. The x-axis is increasing months. 2
vertical bars are set between the major gridlines. It so happens that the
chart vertical gridlines are very close to lining up with the spreadsheet
cells above/below the chart. Print preview shows nothing unusual, but when
printed, 1 row right throught the middle of the chart has 1 to 2 dots and a
character high tick mark appear to the right of each right most(second) bar...Stacked Bar Chart Over 100%
Currently have a stacked bar chart showing to 100% (the plan) by 8 clients,
how can I show that 3 of the 8 will be over 100% (greater than plan)?
If this is a normalized chart (the one on the right in the chart types), it
will always be 100%. You'll have to use the middle one. Are these
percentages (as they appear in the worksheet)? If so, use the regular
stacked chart (the middle one), and the axis should adjust to accomodate
whatever your greatest percentage is.

Greetings and thanks for your time
I have labels A,B,C,D and data series of values a%, b%, c%, d%. This series
is sorted into ascending order of values and feeds a bar chart (ie a Pareto
chart). I would like to display this data also on a Pie chart, but would like
to keep the same series point color for A,B etc. regardless of how the
updated values change the rank order (say, C,B,A,D). Presently, if say, point
A is dark blue at the start of the order and then after updating the % scores
point A moves down to 3rd in the order, point A will take on another color.

In Word 2003 I could get three panes up when editing a document:
- the text itself in the middle
- a narrow pane on the left showing against each paragraph the style it's in
- a pane on the right for selecting styles and for changing them
In Word 2007 I can get a Styles pane up on the right of the text, but I
can't see a way to get its paragraph styles shown in a pane on the left.
Can it still be done?

I'm trying to create a chart that shows the run time (in minutes) o
data backups at work.
They start at various times from 00:00 to 23:59, with varying lengths.
3-D looks the best on paper, where it seems best to have the 24 hou

For example, if rows were Apple, Banana, Guava, Orange, and Yucca, I have sorted the data in order of the greatest value items (20 Guavas, 10 Oranges, 5 yucca, 2 bananas, and 1 apple). Yet the chart (a bar chart) only seems to let me display in either ascending or descending value by food name (either Apple to Yucca or Yucca to Apple...Chart Zoom and Scrolling

I can get the file inserted but cannot change the color. Any suggestion?
You can change the .eps file to one color only if it has a .tiff header,
right-click the image, format picture, picture tab, recolor.
If the .eps file has a .wmf header, select the picture, arrange, ungroup.

I've been running into a situation that continues to crash my Excel. I'm
wondering if anyone else has encountered this.
I often create text boxes that link to a cell in the worksheet to pull in a
special message or label into the chart. I do this by clicking on the
formula bar, typing "=" and then using the mouse to navigate to the cell.
(Typing the cell reference doesn't seem to work.) I have found that if the
cell I am referring to is a one-cell, named range, Excel crashes. In this
case, I'm better off navigating to a near-by, unnamed cell and then editing

right again? I have checked everything I know and can't seem to retrieve
Thanks in advance,
Sounds like the table lost its tableness. Select all of the table again and
