Corel WordPerfect - Import Quattro Pro Data Into A Presentations Data Chart (9/10/11/12)

If you have data in Quattro Pro you'd like to use on a slide, you don't have to retype all of the labels and values. You can easily import the data into a data chart on a slide.

  • First, create a new chart slide by clicking on the arrow to the right of the Insert A New Slide button
  • Selecting Insert Data Chart Slide.
  • Double-click on the data chart placeholder on the slide. When you do, the Data Chart Gallery dialog box opens.
  • From the Chart Type list box
  • Select the type of chart you want to create.
  • Deselect the Use Sample Data and 3-D check boxes if necessary.
  • Click OK to open a blank datasheet for the chart.
  • Next, with the Datasheet displayed, choose Data | Import from the menu bar.
  • Verify that Spreadsheet is selected in the Data Type dropdown box.
  • Next to the Filename text box
  • Click the Browse button
  • Locate and select the notebook file containing the data
  • Click Open.
  • Select the named range or sheet name you want to import in the Named Ranges list box.
  • You can also modify the range boundaries in the Range text box.
  • Click OK to import the data.
  • If the data needs to be transposed (the columns should be rows) then import the data again but before you click OK
  • Select the Transpose Data and the Clear Current Data check boxes.
  • When you import the data but receive the Unsupported String Format error
  • Check the spreadsheet column or row labels for any symbols before the text, such as a caret (^).
  • Remove these symbols, save the notebook, and import the data again.
