Access chart control initiates Office 2007 setup and inserts sample chart instead of the data I choose

Every time I try to insert a chart control in Access it initiates the Office 2007 setup wizard.  All features of Office are already installed so there is no reason for this to begin with.

Anyways the setup runs for a few minutes then when it finishes it doesn't even insert a chart with the data that I selected, instead it inserts a sample chart with "East, West, and North".

I'm trying to create a simple pie chart that will show a percentage representation of all the "customer complaint categories".  I can achieve this by using a PivotChart but why not a chart control?

Any idea why this is?

Hi paintb4707,

The fact that it initiates the setup wizard shows that somethings not OK.
Try doing repair.

Good Luck!

Well I did a repair of office.  The setup wizard no longer comes up but I'm still getting a sample chart with "East, West, and North".  I'm only trying to create a pie chart with 1 field from a table.  Am I doing something wrong?
