Updating excel from a word file Cam teens pic
There are two ways to program a spreadsheet to update automatically: every time the workbook is opened and at regular intervals that you determine.Make sure you are on the "Usage" tab of the "Connection Properties" dialog box.This is confusing enough, but my problem is that I can't even manually update in the case of two spreadsheets I maintain.I keep lots of different data that is updated from various websites and databases.When I first link the chart into my word doc (which is how I format my reports I send in email), the chart updates ok.

Another major frustration is that recording the Paste Special code to insert the Excel table as an enhanced metafile, was ignored by Word, which defaulted to inserting the table as a formatted Word table.
