    Excel Graphic goes awry in HTML

    I have a colleague who is having trouble with a bar chart inserted into an HTML page.
    Apparently the lines of the graph are anchored in their respective position, but the color inside the lines is shifting up...sounds strange, I know.
    Does it sound familiar to anyone else?

    I'll comment only for future reference to others who may encounter this via a string search.

    Lock or protect the graphic (e.g.chart...etc.) When you convert or post-script, the graphic will shift if it is not protected.

    How do you insert the chart into HTML? I've converted them to gifs and displayed the gif, but it sounds as if you're doing something else. Is that the case?

    Re: Excel Graphic goes awry in HTML

    While a gif conversion does work, this particular project required a pdf page, because .gifs print out badly.
    According to Adobe, they have been encountering problems with conversion of Excel graphics to pdf. The official party line procedure is use the Distiller printer and print directly to pdf from there. If you have many prints to do, switch it to your default printer.
    Beware of special fonts and objects that won't pass through Distiller for copyright reasons.[img]/w3timages/icons/yikes.gif[/img]
    Suspect fonts will be switched for courier (yech)...You'll notice the difference.
