Positioning Excel Charts in Word

By wattsnew ·
I'm trying to paste some Excel pie charts in Word, and I need to get four on one page. After I've pasted (as picture) and resized the first chart on the upper left hand corner of a Word page, then I try to paste the second chart below the first one, the charts disappear off the page and end up somewhere else. I've tried Format Picture Postion, but I can't seem to get it to work. Can anyone out there help me with this? The other thing I'd like to know is what is the function of the anchor, and is this where my problem lies? Any help would be much appreciated.

Here's a good discussion:

You might try creating a table on the page. Paste the chart in a cell using in line and not float over text positioning. Select the table and format without borders/gridlines.

well, that was pretty nice stuff from DKlippert you just rejected but i'll stick my neck out too...
you don't tell us what version of Word. if Word97, ya need to get your graphic into a frame. right-click on the graphic in Word and see if you can find 'convert to frame'. then you can move it around and have it stay put. don't have word 97 in front of me so can't tell you the steps. i think you insert a text box first then place the graphic into it. good luck.
