Subject BarChart is not refreshed in PPT after updating value in Data File
Date Fri, 26 Jul 2013 20:17:55 GMT
Hi, I have a pptx template, it has just 1 slide for testing purpose. The
slide has a simple bar chart. I am able to edit the bar chart by double
clicking it on pptx file and I could change the values in Sheet1 (Data sheet
for Barchart), and, I able to see the changes immediately in BarChart.

Now, I am trying to do the same using POI API. I am doing the below steps

1. Read the template file
2. Have all shapes in Map
3. Read the BarChart shape by referring it's name
4. Read the excel file of the BarChart
5. Update a cell Value in Sheet1
6. Save everything and write into another file - "MyPresentation.pptx"

When I open the file - "MyPresentation.pptx", it does not show up the
updated cell value upfront in the Bar. I need to double click the chart to
change it to EDIT mode to get the latest value reflected. Why does BarChart
is not getting refreshed when it's underlying Data Sheet is updated using

Please advise me.

Here is the completed code, attached pptx template file as well.
