Powerpoint 2016 chart not updating
Plot By = xl Rows Next Next I have another problem of refeshing charts. Paste 'Reposition to original position Active Chart. All worked fine in Excel 2003, but in Excel 2007 the chart seems to lose all connection to its data, although manually changing data values in two column triggered a recalc. Refresh i Count = i Count 1 Next co End If If Not chrt Is Nothing Then chrt. On the dashboard, there are some pie charts with data series tied to cells which contain these named ranges (the problem also occurs if the data series target cells contain the UDFs directly, bypassing the named ranges).
Programatically I inserted the following into a Macro that I linked a button to, it refreshes all of my charts quick enough for a workaround to a known bug. The best explanation I have been able to find so far is this: If I understood it right, if there are more than 65536 formulas that have another cell as a reference in your file, Excel starts to optimize the calculation and in some cases graphs don't update correctly anymore. It had the Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate() 'Recalculate the charts data page to force the charts to update. Maybe this helps As i tried pretty much ALL the presented solutions and since none worked in my case, I'll add my two cents here as well. The consensus on this issue seems to be that we need to somehow force excel to redraw the graph since it is not doing it when it should. I just had the same problem, and also found that the line would only display if I put in bad data (characters instead of numbers).
Now, stay with this one, it splits into two thoughts now.
a) if the "upper left hand corner of the chart is not visible" in what would be the Active Window of the spreadsheet (if it were open), the update linker won't see it and may not update the chart, or worse, may chop off part off the chart image. b) the second issue is the Active Window zoom factor, if you are really going to insist on putting charts on worksheets (more on that later).
Working on the sheet I would do a quick Ctrl-X, Ctrl-V on a piece of the chart (or the whole thing) to force the chart to update. Also, I'm not really sure why this works; I suppose when Wrap Text changes one property of the data range it makes the graph update, although I have no documentation on this. So I post the solution here if it interest someone. The refresh may not be necessary - more testing needed. Anyway, let's cut to the solution: I didn't want to visibly change the chart title or some other aspect of it, and anyway I noticed this wasn't updating my charts consistently. Screen Updating = True End Sub So, the sheet named Charts Data, which references the custom function cell of Sheet 1, will do a recalculation AFTER the Compute Score() function has updated the cell of Sheet 1, since Worksheet_Calculate() fires after the Compute Score() recalc. Select 'Forwhatever reason a Select statement was needed . What I eventually had to do was to break out the querydef creation and the property setting into separate subs.
This is the only thing I've found to consistently update a chart. This is an absurd bug that is severely hampering my work with Excel. Programmatically, I added this after generating charts : Simply redefined the Source Data range. Screen Updating = True End Sub Sub Repaste Charts() Dim Str Temp As String Dim Int Temp Top As Integer Dim Int Temp Left As Integer Set sht = Active Sheet For Each co In sht. Activate 'Grab current position on worksheet Int Temp Top = Active Chart. Dim chrt As Chart Dim chrt Vis As Xl Sheet Visibility Dim sht As Worksheet Dim b Chart Visible() As Boolean Dim i Count As Long Dim co As Chart Object On Error Resume Next Set chrt = Active Chart If Not chrt Is Nothing Then chrt Vis = chrt. Visible = xl Sheet Hidden End If Set sht = Active Sheet If Not sht Is Nothing Then Re Dim b Chart Visible(1 To sht. Sometimes the first time I triggered the calculation the pies would update, but with subsequent calculations the pies would not. This additional round of calculation of the chart data causes the chart to update now, rather than later or not at all. Additionally, I put a I had a similar problem - Charts didn't appear to update.
If the chart was created at a zoom factor of "x" and the zoom factor of the worksheet is set to other than "x" when the file is saved and closed, then Excel linked charts will resize on you.
I think the solution lies in writing a vba in powerpoint. If you need to edit the charts then clearly you will either need to edit the underlying Excel files, or be able to edit in Power Point As you are using Power Point2007 which provides full Excel support (unlike Power Point 2003 which has a datasheet) I would Part 1 This gives you a flexible solution, except that Excel underlying each chart cannot be updated automatically via a Power Point menu Update Links command. This code assumes one chart per worksheet but another for statement for charts 1 to N could be added if desired: Sub Refresh Charts() Application. If there is a workaround for this without using VBA macros, I would be glad to hear that (can't use those as the files need to be shared through Share Point without VBA macros). 'Otherwise, they don't update until the next change to a sheet, and so 'chart data is always one update behind the user's data changes. My solution was to kill the X-Axis data and replace it with nothing, before changing it to what i wanted. This caused the line to appear, but changing back to valid data caused it to disappear again.Screen Updating = False For I = 1 To Active Workbook. What I found is that if I double-clicked the line (appearing with bad data), it showed me that it was on the SECONDARY axis for some reason. Charts are not "feeling" changes with direct inserting values to sorurce cells with macro. Every month, I have to update these 30 embedded charts by manually clicking on the charts and edit.
