    Excel Table imported as picture (Word 2002 on Win 2000 PRO)

    A colleague is attempting to update a Word document prepared by a previous employee. It includes an Excel table which she believes has been imported as a picture since she can't access or alter the table and it is viewed as a picture. Can anybody tell me how this was done, please? Or, if in fact, we're on the wrong track completely. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    Can't tell you whether you're on the right track or not, but I have intentionally achieved the same result -- pasting an Excel table as a Picture, by: copying the appropriate range in Excel, then switching to Word, then Edit, Paste Special, as Picture.

    Hope this helps.

    Perhaps you can explain what is happening, I use Excel and Word 2000.

    If you use paste special as picture or metafile, you do not get the Excel gridlines.
    If you use paste special and insert as a bitmap, you get the gridlines
    If it is just a copy and paste, the Excel info is inserted as a Word Table <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Thanks
