    I am trying to prepare a new editon of a pdf book written in word. but when i did the original i just inserted charts without making any record of where the charts were. word documentation says that the charts are embeded in the doc. the charts have to be reprocessed to make them printable as print on demand, or commercial printing. can i just use the embeded charts and reprocess them or do i have to go back to the original chart? and is there any way to find the original from the word doc?
    it's driving me crazy (like all msft software).
    any help appreciated.

    Years ago I did this, but it was Word for Windoze. As I recall, it depended on how you inserted it. I think if you do an "insert object", you can reprocess it externally, then it will update in the document. I don't recall, though, if the update was automatic or if to took some sort of manual operation.

    Perhaps you should ask this on the mactopia forums.

    You used Microsoft's OLE (Object Link and Embedding). OLE was Microsoft's response to Apple's Open Doc. If the OP did not keep copies of the original graphics files, then those files must be recreated.
