Prevent Excel object in Word from turning into an image

I have embedded an editable Excel 2010 table into Word 2010, so users can update the spreadsheet directly in the Word document. However, there has been instances where the Excel table will randomly turn into an image, making it no longer editable and forcing the user to recreate the entire spreadsheet.

Is there a solution to this?

Thank you.

This could be related to an Excel COM add-in

Try disabling these addins and see if the issue persists

If this document was created in 2003 and then upgraded to a later version I would also try recreating the document.
