While importing powerpoint files into Impress works well, I am not able to edit or modify any charts created in Powerpoint.

The error given is "Error in activating OLE Objects"

I am running OpenOffice under Mandrake Linux 9.1

Regards

Kannan

Editing of the OLE objects requires the program that installed the chart to be present. In that case, it'll be MS Chart, which you obviously won't find under Linux. I am even not sure that it would work properly from an Impress on a Win system with MS Chart installed on it.

You can turn on the conversion of OLE obects which are embedded within a Microsoft document, then if you import the PowerPoint document also embedded Excel OLE objects are converted to Calc OLE (Options/load-save/Microsoft Office). The option is off by default, because it can take too much time if many OLE objects are part of the document - if a PowerPoint document is containing twenty Excel diagrams, then it takes the same time as loading twenty standalone Excel documents + 1 PowerPoint. (I got a performance Issue for this) Smile
