I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have just been playing with embedding a chart from Excel into a PPT slide.

Just doing a straight paste I was unable to change the source document but I was able to open the Excel file embedded within the slide. The whole file was copied into the ppt file.

I also tried pasting as a link. I was then able to change the source using the Edit > Links window - Change Source.

I suspect if the Edit Links option is not available in your file, the excel sheets have been inserted into rather than linked to your powerpoint file.

Doesn't look like good news, apologies!!
