Pasting from Excel to Word

    Our company pastes data as a Picture (Enhanced Metafile) from Excel to word
    using font Arial 10. When pasted into Word, the information looks fine on
    screen, but when printed or print previewed, the spacing between characters
    is off. Particullarly a problem is the letter combination ve is squished
    together. Other spacing is a little off too. We have tried switching
    printers, reinstalling print drivers, changing from souce formating to
    destination formating, changing option from paste as apears on screen to
    paste as prints and vice-versa, copy as picture, etc. Nothing seems to work.
    It used to paste fine, but for no explicable reason, the format problems
    began at different times on each of our admin staffs computers. We are using
    Office 2007 and Windows XP. Please help!!!

    you might try making a
    system restore point for
    today,

    then use the oldest restore
    point available on the pc
    and see if sending it back
    in time restores the feature.

    if not then bring the pc
    back to today.

    ------------

    perhaps, there is also
    the option of adding a
    pdf print driver.

    though office has the
    capability of "saving as"
    pdf,

    you may also want to
    install a pdf printer driver
    like primo pdf.

    that way if printing pdf
    pans out for you, which
    I think it will,,

    then the pc users will
    have no problem with
    printing their doc's when
    they see a pdf printer
    and when they select
    print.

    even though office has a
    pdf maker,

    its initiated via "save as"
    menu option and can be
    easily overlooked by the
    user.

    You need to to do the following:

    1) Copy the text in/from excel
    2) Switch to Word
    3) Select "paste special" and select Microsoft Office Excel
    Worksheet Object

    This way you get an exact copy of excel and also you have the
    ability to edit it and do the re-calculations as you would in
    excel.
