XL3/XL4: Recent File List not Updated to Show Saved Chart
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Excel for Windows, versions 3.0, 4.0, 4.0a
- Microsoft Excel for OS/2, version 3.0
- Microsoft Excel for the Macintosh, versions 3.0, 4.0
In the versions of Microsoft Excel listed above, the most recently used file list, located at the bottom of the File menu, does not reflect the name of a chart that is created from an embedded chart. When you save the file as a separate file, the most recently used file list is not updated.
This behavior occurs for example when you create an embedded chart by using the Chart Wizard. If you then activate the embedded chart so that it appears in a Chart Window and save the Chart, the name of the Chart file does not appear at the bottom of the File menu. This behavior does not occur when you create and save a chart file that was not an embedded chart.
Note that this behavior does not occur in Microsoft Excel versions 5.0 or later. In later versions of Microsoft Excel, when you activate an embedded chart object, the chart does not open in a separate chart window.
