Hello one and all:
I keep all my staff/personnel in a .xls.
Foremost in this .xls is a list of names(thousands) as well as the Unit/Unit Titles they're assigned to.

From this I build Org. Charts using either .PPT or MS Org.

Updating the .xls in no problem, but from there it gets cumbersome.

I want to continue using the .xls as I currently do (PT usage). But, I also want the Org Charts to Automatically updade when I Add/Delete/Change anything, including names, unit titles, assigned units, etc.

I don't want to have to rebuild the Org Charts each and every time.

So, when I change the .xls, the Org Charts are ready for Print, meaning nothing else to do.

Your thougts on this tough one.

Hi Henry

Have you tried saving your excel document to a .txt file?
I had a similar problem with my Org charts where i could not link the excel sheets to the chart.What i did was firstly save the excel sheet to .txt then transporting it to the chart.


Hope that helps you.It worked for me.
:p

Out of my leauge on this, but (since I can't sleep).......

When you "rebuild" your org chart, is that simply a matter of Excel commands?

If so, what is the possibility of recording a macro of the effort, perceiving a pattern, correlating it with your logical process, and creating code that replicates your logic?
