Hello,
I am copying a Excel Sheet and pasting it to Word using Edit/Paste Special/Picture (Enhanced Meta File)
The text in excel is several different colors, but when I paste it in Word, the text comes out black.
Any ideas how to keep the color formatting?
I am using windows xp and vista. Office 2003

All I know is that it is in the default printer.
If you set the default printer to another (preferably color) printer, this
will solve the problem, although some charts still do not  seem to be copied
smoothly.
Maybe someone else has a better solution to this problem??
