    Hi,

    I'm having trouble saving charts in Excel 2007. I would like to draw one chart, save that and then change my input data and draw a new chart to compare with. The problem is that when I change the input data the first chart also changes (even if I have moved it to Word or Power Point).

    Is there any way to lock of freeze the first chart so that it doesn't automaticaly update when I change the input data?

    Thanks!

    Not familiar with 2007 but are you going "save as" and creating a new file , on each occasion. If not that could be the reason. Pedro

    Thanks, that solves the problem.
    But I still wish there was an easier way of doing it. This way I get a whole bunch of different documents to keep track of when I really only need the differerent charts.

    If you create a template for your chart and use this each time for a new chart and go "save as" with name of file this will mean your template remains unaltered. Pedro
