"Do you want to save changes" not working...

I copied an excel chart into powerpoint as "Excel Chart (entire workbook)" so 
that it would not have any links to the orginal worksheet.  When I then go in 
to edit the data the changes are made to the chart however if I close the 
powerpoint presentation it does not ask me if I want to save my changes, and 
when I reopen the presentation the chart goes back to the orginal data.  If I 
consciously save the presentation before closing it, the changes made, 
however I'm afraid I might close it without remembering to save it since I'm 
not prompted.  Is this a problem with 2007?  or am I doing something wrong? 
Anything I can turn on to get the prompt to work?

What you're experiencing is highly unusual. I know this will sound odd, but 
have you rebooted recently?

"Do you want to save changes?" after editing email
I'm using Windows and Office XP Pro, and in Outlook I am composing messages in Rich Text format, and have selected the "use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail messages" and "use MS Word to read Rich Text messages" options. When I make any changes to an e-mail that has been sent to me, upon closing the e-mail, a pop up window appears asking me if I want to save changes (just like when you make any changes to a Word document). Annoying! I'd like to get rid of this feature. Thank you, Trish Regardless of whether or not Word is set as you editor or what message fo...

"do you want to save changes" when I close outlook
I have recently upgraded to office 2007, including outlook 2007. Now when I add senders to the blocked sender list and then close outlook I am prompted “do you want to save changes”. If I click “yes” I then get a message window “the item cannot be saved because it was changed by another user or in another window”. Also asks “Do you want to make a copy in the default folder for the item”. This only happens when senders are added to blocked sender list. I would like to eliminate the prompt as the senders still seem to be added to the list. Previous verion of outlook was 2003. Usin...

"Do you want to save changes?" question
Is there a flag or variable or property that I can check that indicates whether or not the "Do you want to save changes?" dialog will appear when a workbook is closed?? If someone changes the contents of a cell and tries to close the workbook without saving, Excel knows that the user did not save the workbook. So, just to be more clear, how can I find out if Excel knows that a "save changes" is required?? thank you More than one option. Application.DisplayAlerts = False ActiveWorkbook.Close Application.DisplayAlerts = True Or: ActiveWorkbook.Clos...

Do you want to save changes?
Everytime a shared workbook is opened and then closed without changes being made to it, users are prompted by the following: This document has been modified. Do you want to save changes? Yes: Saves your changes. No: Discards your changes. Cancel Keeps this document open. Using excel 2002. Again, no changes are made and the prompt still comes up. Thanks in advance for any help. NWH Hi not sure but could be a 'feature' of shared workbooks. another reason could be the use of volatile functions: http://www.decisionmodels.com/calcsecretsi.htm -- Regards Frank Kabel...
