    How can I retain my chart edits when updating Excel link?

    Seb29 Level 1

      I have a linked Excel chart in my InDesign file. This chart has no formatting from Excel but I have made adjustments to the colour, width of cells and chart size in InDesign.

       

      If I edit the Excel file and try to update the link in InDesign, this is the warning I receive…

       

      "Edits have been made to the imported version of [file name]. You will lose these edits when you update the link."

       

      So if I import the Excel file, my InDesign edits do not remain and the chart looks horible again. How can I set it so my InDesign edits remain and only the chart data gets updated?

       

      Thanks!
