Consider the following scenario. You publish a workbook that you created in Microsoft Office Excel 2007 to Excel Services, a feature of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. The workbook contains one or more shapes or embedded pictures in a chart in the workbook. When you use a Web browser to view the workbook that you published to the server, Excel Services loads and displays the workbook and the chart. However, Excel Services does not display the shapes or embedded pictures in the chart.
If the shapes or pictures are not located within a chart in the workbook, Excel Services does not load the workbook. Instead, you receive the following error message:
