    table is green (Word 2003)

    The attached table is not supposed to be green. When I open it in Word 97, it looks normal. When I open it in Word 2003, it's green and I can't get rid of the green. Any ideas?

    The following works in Word 2002 (where the table is also green):
    - Select the object (it's an Excel worksheet object)
    - Select Format | Object...
    - In the Layout tab, select one of the "floating" options, such as "In front of text", then click OK.
    - The object should be transparent now.
    - Select Format | Object... again.
    - In the Layout tab, select Inline, then click OK.
    No explanation, though <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Its actually transparent and you have a green highlight shining through it.

    Try selecting it and then clicking on the highlight button near the end of the formatting toolbar.

    Bingo Hans! That worked. Someone gave this to me to "fix." I am not sure what they did or why they did it the way they did - and obviously they didn't know either or they would've fixed it. Thank much!
