Hello,

I am trying to copy some charts from one Excel file to another workbooks and to PowerPoint, for some types of charts I can paste special then paste link as Excel Chart Object in PowerPoint, But for charts like Waterfall the option is greyed out and disabled. I cannot paste as Excel Object!? and the box mention that the source is Unknown?!

Normally, this is the option I have for Clustered Column for example. it is normally pasted as link and I update the value with ease.

I checked the advanced option for Cut, Copy, and Paste, all boxes are checked.

Why this option is not available for Waterfall charts in Office 365? and If the option of pasting Waterfall charts in older version I can use if you know that it worked.

Thanks
