    Automatically updating links/Links Manager (2003 SP3)

    I have a .ppt with multiple charts that that have data linked from Excel. Each graph with linked data is set to 'automatic' update, but the data does not update automatically when the .ppt file opens (and the data in Excel has changed). I also cannot open the Links Manager to look at all links - I can only look at the links one at a time when the graph is selected and data displayed. (the Links option is greyed out otherwise.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I would create the charts in Excel, copy them, then use Edit | Paste Special with the Paste Link option. The charts will be listed in Edit | Links.
