Charts should be named properly. It is important that the name starts with:
Tables should be named properly. It is important that the name starts with:
To rename charts and tables go into the shape overview in PowerPoint.
When this is done, save the presentation and click "Create Data Source".
This will create a data source that must be saved in a folder. Now, it is possible to open this source in Excel, where the values can be changed. If the presentation in PowerPoint contains several tables and charts the source will consist of several sheets in Excel. The text variables will always be on the first sheet.
