    Excel chart not printing out X axis

    W97

    I have a document with an embedded excel chart.
    In word the x axis is displayed.
    When in Print preview the X axis is displayed.
    When we print out the document or that current page the chart DOES NOT print the x axis.

    I have had a look at microsoft knowledge base:
    Article: X97 Diagonal gradient fill may not be printed correctly.

    http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/ar...&FR=0&qry=lines not printing&rnk=6&src=DHCS_MSPSS_gn_SRCH&SPR=XLW97

    I've applied their suggested workaround & it doesnt work.
    (Note: I have noticed that when I applied or followed their workarounds or solutions - they never work!!!).

    Does anyone know why this occurs?
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
    TIA Diana

    Re: Excel chart not printing out X axis

    First, I am assuming that the chart is impeded as an Excel object, not as an image or picture. I am going to suggest that you check two things, and the first one is going to sound a little strange. First, check to see if there is a newer version of the driver for your display adapter. I had a similar problem a number of years ago, and the problem turned out to be in the display adapter driver for the Matrox adapter I was using. I'm not sure what the display driver is used for when printing, but it appears to be. Second, I would suggest looking for newer versions of the driver for your printer.

    If neither of these help, then I can suggest one possible way around the problem until you find what the real problem is. Embed the chart as an image.

    To resolve isuse & to print out do the following:
    1. double click on chart
    2. double click on legend
    On Format Axis - tab Patterns
    Colour - actually change colour from Automatic to black
    Click OK
    Click back on word doc & Save.

    thanks for all your help - Diana
