Hi,

I have a load of embedded charts in a PPT presentation

My code opens the embedded chart and pastes in some new data, then closes the embedded chart.

I have 100's of these charts. I am now receiving the message "Do you want to save changes to Chart 2"

We need to nort save and surpress the message.

I have tried application.displayalerts false to no avail

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks
Seamus


Sub Update_Graph(shtName As String, rngName As String, slideNum As String, shpName As String)

Sheets(shtName).Range(rngName).Copy

Dim myChart As Object
Dim myChartData As Object
Dim gWorkBook As Excel.Workbook
Dim gWorkSheet As Excel.Worksheet

Set myChart = objPres.Slides(slideNum).Shapes(shpName).Chart
Set myChartData = myChart.ChartData
myChartData.Activate

Set gWorkBook = myChart.ChartData.Workbook
Set gWorkSheet = gWorkBook.Worksheets(1)
gWorkSheet.Range("A1").PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues

Calculate

Application.DisplayAlerts = False
'gWorkBook.Save
gWorkBook.Close False
Application.DisplayAlerts = True
Set gWorkSheet = Nothing
Set gWorkBook = Nothing
Set gChartData = Nothing
Set myChart = Nothing

End Sub

Try adding ActiveWorkbook.Save after or instead of line 20.

Hey Martin, thanks but that has been tried - you can see 'gWorkBook.Save commented out

Sorry, I missed that but do me a favor and try my line anyhow. BTW, as an aside, naming things gWhatever normally indicates that the variable has global scope and when it's defined in a sub, as you probably know, its scope is limited to that sub.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi,

That didnt work

We have an internal classification where when we save a new excel doc, it asks us whether it is an "Internal" or "External" doc

Would this be affecting the surpression code?

Thanks
