Default Office 2007: Excel 2007 error "some chart types cannot be comb

FWIW, I don't use 2007 for "real work" either. But it seems your problems
are beyond anything I've experienced while playing with 2007. Perhaps there
was a problem installing 2007, or there is a corrupted library somewhere, or
installing SP1 would help. I'm only speculating, of course.

Hi I have this problem as well
and the 'fix' did work, at the expense of me having to reset all my
personal
settings..
however, this 'fix' is only temporary until after a while the same
error
pops up again when i try to insert charts in excel 2007

Anyone has any other solutions?

Had this problem as well.
Not sure if its the exact same one.
I was able to insert charts with all other user accounts except my
own.
If you can do that, then its likely that its the same issue.
This is what I did to fix it.
<Disclaimer: be prepared to re-enter any application settings you
have
had
before!

1. Log in a local Admin - Very IMPORTANT!
2. Navigate to 'Documents and Settings'
3. Locate the problematic user account folder i.e. the one that is
giving
the chart error above...
4. BACK IT UP (to another drive)
5. Confirm back up done... then delete everything in that user
ccount -
all files and folders.
What this does effectively is wiping out all Local Settings for that
user
account (and any cache that Office has created, so beware!)
6. Log out as local Admin and log in as the user that had the chart
problem. Windows will now initiate a new clean setup for the user
(basically it takes parameters from 'default user')
7. At this point launch excel and do a simple list and try creating
the
chart.
This worked for me... hope it does for you.

Default Office 2007: Excel 2007 error "some chart types cannot be comb

Jon,

I am suffering from the same issue as described above. I use Excel for
creating quotes and never used the Chart buttons. Suddenly I needed a
presentation with charts and to my surprise the Chart button didn't do
anything. I have run the diagnostic tool for MS Office but no problem has
been found. I will try logging by a different account and see if it works.

What do you mean by "the chart buttons"
Select the range of cells to be plotted; open the Insert tab on the Ribbon
and select one of the chart type. Are you saying nothing happens?
We want to help so please give us all the info

Default Office 2007: Excel 2007 error "some chart types cannot be comb

John, Bernard, Other MVPs who can bring light....

I'm having this problem too and it makes no sense. I'm just selecting a
range of dates and a range of values to make a line chart. I'm a pretty
experienced user with VBA and advanced formulas under my belt and I've never
seen anything like this before. Has anyone been able to get to the bottom of
this. Most frustrating....!

FYI I have two workbooks open right now and seem to be able to chart fine on
one. In fact I can even chart data on other sheets in the affected workbook -
just one sheet seems to be affected.

Thanks for any help...

Hang on there a minute, woah there horsey...

I'm also getting this issue, trying to get 4 chart templates from my Excel
2003 spreadsheet to work in Excel 2007.

Before I start deleting User Profiles (you gotta be kidding me..) and
other dodgy fixes, could you explain:

What does this error actually mean ?

"Some chart types cannot be combined with other chart types. Select a
different chart type."


We have to suffer this error, perhaps you could eleborate on what it means ?

*What type* of Chart Types can't be combined with others ? What are the
criteria to make this error appear ?
