excel 2002 - chart problem

I have just tried to add a bar chart to show some values within a fairly large spreadsheet.

The chart shows just what I want, provided that I have mouse-clicked within the chart area.  But as soon as I mouse click anywhere else the chart disappears, to be replaced by a plain grey block.

What must I do to be able to see the chart all the time?

Thanks for your speedy response - it worked like a charm.
I remain somewhat puzzled, since the selection in my basic preferences is to 'show all'.  Somehow that must have been overwritten for the particular spreadsheet.
