    Excel in Powerpoint - automatic chain update

    Hi

    I have a PP-presentation, with some excel-data in it. (Object)
    Both the powerpoint, and the excel-file is located on a network-drive. / server

    The excel-sheet is shared, and automatic chain update is activated.

    BUT when I change data in the excel-file - I dos'nt change in the PP-presentaion.
    I manualy have to choose "Update Chains" in PP.

    Is it not possile to do this automatic ? The PP-presentation is running non-stop on a informationscreen - I would be more
    easy for me, if you just could change the number in the excel-file.

    I am using Office 365.

    Kind regards,

    interesting issue. what does ''automatic chain update'' mean? never heard of it. a linking feature in the IFace of pp or xl? these are related, but OLE is not a table:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/off...int.linkformat

    what about what it says here at the top?
