Graph changes when editing


G

Gaetan

I have created a PPT document with a lot of graphs in it. Yesterday I wanted
to edit one of the graphs, and when I did so , all the graphs values went to
50%.
It only happens to some of the graphs, and I have used the same method for
all of them, so I am not sure what is happening.

I know that one solution will be to re-change the values to the original
(note that if I do so, then click on edit it is working fine).

Could that be a corruption in the file?

thanks a lot for your help

Nuts. I've seen this in PPT 2007, but not in 2003.

What does your axis scale look like (minimum and maximum) if you right-click
and choose Format Axis? Could it just be that it needs a decimal or two
added on the number format?

Hi Echo,

It has been driving crazy, so I just redid all the graphs, but I would live
to know what happened and how to fix it if that happens again.

Anyway the value are percent for the y-axis and set to automatic. Even if I
changed the max that doesn't do anything, plus some of the value are only
20%, and even those are set to 50%.

thanks again for your help and have a nice weekend
