Word and Excel Problem
Posted on 2014-11-16
I have recently had Office 2013 installed, running on a Windows 7 system. I have a Word document that was created on earlier versions of Word (2010). The document is protected with a password and it contains 7 graphs which are linked to Excel spreadsheets. Once the graphs have been updated in Excel one could always update the graphs in the Word Document by selecting the “Update Link” button. I have upgraded the Excel file containing the graphs to Office 2013 files. However trying to update the Word document to a new file with a new file name in Word 2013 seems impossible. The updated file does not save and one is returned to the dialogue box from which you saved the file. One can see the updated Word file name in the dialogue box but when, at later stage, you try and open the updated Word file, it is empty. After the first attempt to open the updated Word file, it disappears altogether.
