jagged 3D charts in 2007

By ·
I need help!!!1..What can I do to get around the jagged 3D column charts when I put them in Powerpoint. The columns look all jagged. I used to get around that in 2003 by right clicking on the pasted chart and clicking on "edit picture" saying yes to converting to a drawing object. In 2003 that would make the chart columns and gridlines crisp.

What can I do to fix this?
Please help..meeting tomorrow afternoon!

I was able to get around it by copying and pasting the 3D-chart as JPEG object in PowerPoint. So when I print the presentation, the chart is as clear as it is in EXCEL.

Thanks for helping!!
