asked on

Excel will not copy chart to new chart sheet, chart sheet appears blank

Hi Experts,
The question is:
Why would a printer issue keep Excel from copying a new chart to a new chart sheet?
I am working on Excel on workstations at a college campus.
My problem was:
Excel will not copy chart to new chart sheet, the new chart sheet appears blank.
The solution was to restart the workstation.
Other information,  
a) This can be replicated by having a printer driver not loaded or having a printer driver error.
b) Saving the excel workbook on the errant machine, and then loading the file on another workstation, shows the chart was saved,  but still cannot see on errant machine....till restarted ..with a functioning printer.

Thanks

I am not sure but the printer has nothing to do with it...

Where is the chart that you want to copy and how are you copying it to the chart sheet?

you may want ot post this to provide others with the solution to why a chart does not copy.
"It was because of a corrupt print driver."
Answered my own question,  but still do not know why a prointer driver impacts the copying of a chart.
