Powerpoint graphs - Adobe Illustrator Macintosh

Ok, here is what I am trying to do. I want to bring graphs and charts from Excel/PPT into Flash as editable vector graphics. So far the only way I have been able to do this is to bring paste the charts into AI, ungroup and release and remove the clipping paths, save as an AI and then import into flash. A) is there a shorter way to do this? (I know, not a macromedia forum here but any ideas would be welcome) B) can I automate removing the clipping paths? I tried recording an action but didn't work Thanks! ...

    Did you use "Select/Object/Clipping masks" in your action? I tried it and it worked for me.
