Automatic updating of excel tables in powerpoint slides polsk dansk dating

However, when I have a linked table from Excel, I don't have those options: when I select the table, only one tab appears under Table Tools on the ribbon, which is Format.

And I can't use any of the built-in table styles of Power Point.

The Power Point file is 20 pages long with perhaps 30 separate links to excel file.

This works fine initially - if I change the Excel it either refreshes the Power Point automatically or as soon as I click update link.

I have checked and in the link the option is ticked to update automatically.

The first problem arises when I have to save either Excel file and/or Powerpoint file as different version following signifcant changes.

I can end up with 3-4 versions of Excel file and maybe 5-6 versions of Power Point file.

This makes the linked table inconsistent in terms of style, comparing to other regular Power Point tables.

Unfortunately, the built-in styles are only available for styling tables created in Power Point rather than linked or pasted in.

I think the solution lies in writing a vba in powerpoint. If you need to edit the charts then clearly you will either need to edit the underlying Excel files, or be able to edit in Power Point As you are using Power Point2007 which provides full Excel support (unlike Power Point 2003 which has a datasheet) I would Part 1 This gives you a flexible solution, except that Excel underlying each chart cannot be updated automatically via a Power Point menu Update Links command.
