Can't Insert a Chart in PowerPoint 2007

I'm using Office 2007 and Windows 7 OS and whenever I try to insert a chart
into a PowerPoint slide, I get the following message: "To insert a chart, you
must first close any open dialog boxes or cancel editing mode in Microsoft
Excel." After clicking "OK", I get the following: "Some chart types cannot
be combined with other chart types. Select a different chart type." However,
I don't have Excel open at the time and I'm simply trying to insert a simple
2D column chart. Anyone have any idea what could be causing this and how I
can fix it?

Hi Loris,

That is weird that you are getting that message... To make your problem
clearer I want to know where are you gathering data from to create your chart.

The best thing to do if you continue to have those problems is to create
your graph in excel and pasting it on your powerpoint slide(AND is that is
still giving you problems just screen capture and go to paint and select the
graph picture and cut and past it as an image file onto your powerpoint).

Hope this information helps,

Vicente Tulliano

If I recall correctly, this one's usually fixed by running Office
Diagnostics. Go to Office Button | PPT Options | Resources and run
diagnostics there.
