Charts in MS Word documents


User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

We have a need for business users to maintain charts in different word

documents. These charts would be updated on a quarterly basis.

My question is what's the best way to get these charts into the MS Word

documents? Is copying an existing chart by selecting "Copy to an Office

Application" from the chart toolbar and then pasting it in a word document

the best way?

Please help.

This way will give you interactive charts inside your word documents but

each one of your users will need to have the Chart FX Office Add-in as well

as Chart FX dll/ocx.

These files are royalty free for redistribution but you will need to install

them in their computers.

More documentation on this can be found in the Chart FX Office Add-In docs

which can be downloaded from our extensions site:

www.softwarefx.com/extensions

Another way is to simple export the chart as an image (bitmap or metafile).

We will have to go with interactive charts inside the word docs as the users

want the capability to manipulate the data behind the charts (in the word

doc). Going with this route, I tried installing the "Chart FX Office

Add-in" on a user's machine which gave me the message "Chart FX Client

Server needs to be installed prior to the installation of this MS Office

Add-On".

Does this mean that we need licenses for Chart FX Client Server for all our

users before the office add-on can be installed on their machines?
