Problem with saving Word file that is connected to Excel files that uses Powerpivot tables, charts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone

    I had run into this issue several times with different files. I have several Excel files that use Powerpivot pivot tables and charts. I am copying/linking some of the charts in these files into a Word document--pasting so that the charts retain their link from Word back to Excel. Frequently though, when I go to save the Word document, I am unable to save it. The 'save as' dialogue box keeps continually popping up and it will not save.

    Has anyone run into this in the past?

  • Hi Paul,

    I have tested it on my local environment, we cannot reproduce this issue. I copy Pivot table and Pivot chart into a Word file, and we can save it without any problems.

    In your scenario, which Power Pivot for Excel add-in version are your using? Please provide us more information, so that we can try to reproduce this issue and make further analysis.

    Besides, here is a document that about how to link dynamic range Excel reports to Word.
