    Remove chart margin space (Excel 2002)

    How can I remove extra white space around a chart? I'd like to copy and paste into PowerPoint but don't want to reduce the size of the chart, yet there is too much when pasted. Any ideas? Thank you.

    What white space are we talking about?

    Is the chart portion of the chart object a lot smaller than the chart object itself in excel? If so increase the chart size and reduce the chart object size so the chart is the size you want.

    I also seem to have the best luck copying and pasting (that is, if you do NOT want a linked chart) by pasting as a PICTURE. This seems to keep the same "look" of the chart and all the relative dimensions within the chart.
