    Pasting Excel chart into Word (Word 2000)

    A flow chart has been created within Excel (2000) and I want to copy and paste this chart into a Word document (no links). I use Paste Special and have tried pasting it in as a picture and as an enhanced metafile picture, but when I paste it in, half the chart is missing and I can't seem to paste it in as a whole. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have done this frequently with no problems.

    Are you sure that you have selected and copied the whole chart in Excel?

    Yes, absolutely. I have always had trouble with this ever since we moved to Word 2000 (I could always do it in the previous version), so now I wonder if I'm doing something wrong. I'm definitely copying the whole of the chart from Excel as it leaves the dotted line around that which I've copied.

    Incidentally, I have no trouble with flow charts that are A4, only ones that are A3. When pasted into Word, they seem to get cut off at the A4 size, even though the Word page is set up as A3.

    That is strange,

    As a workaround could you shrink the chart in Excel and then stretch it again in Word?

    Pasted it in as a bitmap in the end - which is the only way it would work. Quality wasn't as good, but at least it was all there!
    Thanks for your help!
