editing embedded chart data RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     

    I am writing a presentation package that has editable charts in it. The embedded chart is of object type 'Microsoft Office Excel Chart'. During the generation of such a document, the data is put into a data sheet in the xlsx package in the pptx and the pptx is delivered to the user after some content decoration and styling.

     

    It is imperative that Office users be able to edit the chart content. Unfortunately, most users have not upgraded to Office 2007. The compatibility pack for office 2003 does not work with editing embedded Office 2007 objects (check - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932121). This is a serious road-block and would have consequences in my project unless a solution or a work-around could be found that works with the general user base.

     

    Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

     

    Thanks

    Himanshu
