Bug Report - Word/Excel

On Mac
-----------
Construct linear plot in Excel including:
1. Title
2. X-axis label
3. Y-axis label

Copy and Paste into Word

Save and send to PC


On PC
----------
Open file in Word

Notice Y-axis label is gone


I'm a Biochemistry student who uses Excel to do lots of number
crunching.  I use a 1.25G Powerbook G4 with OS X 10.4.3 and the newest
version of Office.  I copy plots from Excel to Word often when writing
reports without any problems.  Recently, I've began submitting reports
electronically via email and my professor uses a PC.  When he opens my
files, Y-axis labels are missing.  He can subsequently forward my email
back to me and when I open it on my powerbook, they labels are there
still.  This appears to be some incompatibility between Word on Mac vs
PC?

Any help would be appreciated as this is a pretty big problem for me.

Thanks!

Michael

Michael,

I created a linear chart in Excel 2004 on Mac. Opened Mac Word,. In a new
document added a few les of junk pasted in the excel chart, added a few more
lines of junk. Saved the document (over my network) to my windows XP Pro PC.
Opened the document in Word 2003, and it looked fine. Y axis labels were
present.

I then reopened the document in Mac Word. Saved it to the Mac desktop with a
different name. used the finder to copy it to my PC. Opened the new document
with Win Word. It also looked fine.

Perhaps there is a font issue, or your Excel chart and Word document are
somehow different than you are describing. If you can supply some more
details, I will be happy to try again.

Did you copy and paste the Excel chart into Word?

If you are asking me, yes I did. See the first sentence of my original
reply.

Hi,

There are some known problems in the Windows version of Excel that were 
corrected in product updates.  Be sure that the Windows users have 
updated their copy of Office.

If you paste as image (PICT), there will be a problema with vertical
text, that will not show up or print correctly. Normally, I just avoid
vertical text. If I need vertical text, on older systems I printed to an
eps (encapusated postscript), and imported it from Word. Printing to an
pdf might work as well. 

bye

Excel 2003 Array Formula in Excel 2007
Hello all, I am moving from Excel 2003 to Excel 2007. One problem I'm having is with the following array formula which works in 2003 but returns a #VALUE! in 2007. Is there something I need to change in my 2007 setup to make this work? {=(SUM(IF(LEN($H$7:$H$476)<>0,1,0))-1)-(SUM(IF(LEN($K$7:$K $476)<>0,1,0))-1)} ....

error bars on bar chart in Excel 2007
I would like to assign a separate error bar value to each of the data sets within my bar chart. When I use the customise error bars feature it allocates the same error bar to all of the bars in the graph. Each chart in the bar is a mean in itself, hence the requirement for individual error bars. I see from previous posts that this appeared to be possible in Excel 2003 but I don't have access to this version. If each bar represents the average of a set of numbers, then you can calculate the standard deviation (or other measure of dispersion) for this set of numbers. Put these ca...

how do i extract the formula from a trendline in Excel?
