    Graphs cannot be displayed (Word 2002 NL)

    Good afternoon,

    Can anybody tell me what the following means (dutch) :"Fout! Objecten kunnen niet worden gemaakt door veldcodes te bewerken."
    I get this message in a document which contained two graphs, and now they've disappeared... why has this happened?

    Many thanks in advance!

    The graphs have probably been inserted as linked charts, and the Excel spreadsheet containing the originals is not available any longer (it may have been deleted, moved or renamed.)

    You may be able to unlink the charts:
    - Press Alt+F9 to display field codes in the document.
    - Linked charts look like this when you display field codes: { LINK Excel.Sheet.8 ... }.
    - Note the path and name of the spreadsheet.
    - Click inside such a link and press Ctrl+Shift+F9.
    - If all goes well, the graph will reappear, now unlinked.
    - Press Alt+F9 to hide field codes again.

    If you can't recover the graphs this way, you'll have to delete the links and recreate them. The path and name you noted earlier may help in finding the spreadsheet(s) containing the original charts.
