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
