Publish an Excel Spreadsheet Chart to SharePoint 2010

I have an Excel Spreadsheet that contains a Chart named "Chart 1".  I published this Excel chart to a Sharepoint site home page and it has been functioning well up until now.

A colleague recently made some updates to the Excel spreadsheet and inadvertanly did something to break the connection between the Excel spreadsheet Chart and Sharepoint.

When I try to Publish the Chart to Sharepoint now, I get the error "Failed to download Chart or image".

I've followed the steps diligently and I've done this before successfully but now it will not connect. There is a table in the same Excel spreadsheet that I also published to the same SharePoint page and it is functioning properly.

Any insight on how to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
could you please explain what you mean with "Publish chart"?

Do you upload the Excel file to a SharePoint library and use an Excel Web Part to display the chart on the site (using Excel Services)?
If yes, I would double check if:
- The chart has a name?
- In the Publish to Excel Services the named chart is selected (Publish -> Excel Services -> Excel Services Options -> Tab "Show" -> your named chart is selected

Yes, those are the steps that I used to publish the chart and yes the chart has a name, it is chart1. I believe the fact that the error message reads "Failed to download Chart or image" implies that the chart is being accessed but not rendered.

Hi,
hm. OK.
There are two options:
either Excel Service has an issue OR the chart itself is not compatible.

Can you have a look into the SharePoint ULS logs?
Have you already tried to restart Excel Services?
Do you have another SharePoint farm to test it in a different environment?

I had once an issue which could only be solved by increasing the RAM for that virtualized SharePoint (8 -> 12 GB).

The issue was with the chart name. The name "Chart1" needed a space added. Thanks
