    Dropping Columns (Excel 2000)

    I'm trying to copy and paste a small portion of data from excel into power point and one of the columns is not visible.
    Columns A-G and Rows 1-32 (G is not visible in power point) When I double click on it I can see that it is there but I can't see it on the page. I've tried to copy and paste a lot of different ways also. I've used Insert Object, Highlight the area and Shift/Edit/Copy Area, normal copy and paste short cuts....

    I've put my concerns into the excel forum instead of power point because I've had the same problem trying to copy from one excel workbook into another. It seems to be some kind of setting in my computer because I can go to someone else's desk and do it in a snap.

    Thank you in advance for your support,

    Theresa

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    There is a limit on the size of the range you can copy/paste into PowerPoint. Are your colums very wide? If so, try making them narrower.
    You can also copy a picture of the range: hold down the Shift key, then select the Edit menu. The Copy item will now be Copy Picture. When you select this, you'll get a dialog; you can experiment with the settings.

    The narrower columns did work but it's difficult to read, even after stretching it out.

    I can go to someone else's computer and do the Copy Picture feature without a problem but when I try to do that at my desk it says: The Picture is too large and will be truncated.

    What a mess.

    I'm not sure what a screen dump is. In power point, I tried: Insert Object Create From File

    Apparently, it also depends on the screen resolution (whether your monitor is set to 800 x 600 pixels, or to 1024 x 768 etc.). Does your computer have a smaller resolution than those of others?

    How simple was that! I'm getting pretty old and will definitely need new glasses but that worked.

    Thank you so much.
