Repair PowerPoint 2003 charts

"Consider the following scenario:
  • You apply a design theme to a presentation in Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007.
  • You insert an embedded Microsoft Office Excel chart object into a slide in the presentation.
  • You save the presentation in the PowerPoint 97-2003 Presentation (*.ppt) format.

In this scenario, when you open the presentation in Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 and then edit the chart, the theme information that is applied to the chart is lost. Instead, the default Microsoft Office color theme is applied to the embedded Excel chart object. Additionally, the text in the chart changes, and the chart shrinks.

Note This problem also occurs if you create a .doc file by using Microsoft Office Word 2007. Then, when you edit the chart object in Microsoft Office Word 2003, you experience these symptoms."

PowerPoint 2007 and Word 2007 use Excel to insert charts.

When the file is saved in 97-2003 format, you lose that feature.

According to MS,
"To work around this problem, use one of the following methods:
  • Do not edit the chart in PowerPoint 2003.
  • If you edit the chart in PowerPoint 2003, remove the chart. Then, use PowerPoint 2007 to reinsert the chart."
