    Chart folders (2000/SP3)

    When I create a chart within workbook, a folder is created with the filename of workbook in the same folder where the workbook resides. This started showing up when I switched to Windows XP.

    Is this supposed to happen? If I email a workbook, do I need to also email the folder? Anyone know why this happens in Windows XP?

    This certainly isn't standard behavior for standard workbooks (*.xls). Are you editing a .htm file?

    Nope. I'm inserting a chart onto a sheet in the workbook. Once I do this, the folder is created.

    Are you saving as a web page? Can you tell us what the contents of the folder are?

    Re: Chart folders (2000/SP3)

    I am not saving as a web page. The folder gets named xxx_files, where xxx is the filename of the .XLS file. The contents include an XML document called filelist, GIF files called image001, image002, etc. and HTML documents called sheet001, sheet002, etc. a stylesheet and a file called tabstrip.

    Yes, this looks like I am saving an HTML version, but I have not instructed Excel to do so. Is there an option I am overlooking that I should know about?

    Thanks for any help.

    That's a very good question. I can't find one. I'd use the save as command, save as an xls file. And then delete the excess files (or if you want to be paranoid, move them to another directory until you've proved that your new xls file has everything in it - then delete them).

    Does the file have protection applied? Or sharing?
