    Hi everyone,

    Sorry to bother you all but I have a query. I am working with a team and everyone has the same Excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet works fine on my laptop (basic Acer laptop) but on a colleagues (Macbook pro) the data is added the same but the charts on the next page are blank with nothing showing (not even the title of the chart).

    We are both using the latest Microsoft Excel. This might be too vague but does anyone have any ideas of what to try?

    Many thanks

    Perhaps there's a setting on the Mac that's enabled to prevent objects from being visible? Irrelevant to you, I review plenty of large data sets, making sure they're correct first before checking out the charts.

    Relevant to you, there is potentially one issue and one setting that could prevent objects from appearing. The issue: check that you both have the identical fonts installed. The Setting: Under the View Preference, check to ensure that the "For Objects, Show" "All" option is selected - the "Nothing (hide objects)" option will hide all items except for the data fields and headers. Check the Preference setting first.
