  • 1. image looks like in a mirror
    I have a document with an image, made with Word 2000 (Windows 2000). When i open it with Word 2002 (W xp), the image appears like in a mirror (not rotated). Very funny.
  • 2. Opening cil. files
    When I double click the cil. file with the clipart I would like to open I recieve this message, ( Could not create file D:\MS Works\ Downloaded\j0112420wmf. for output. ) I'm using W98 SE MS Word 97. I've yet to download any clips from the clip gallery because of this. Is there a way for me to resolve this problem. My D drive is not a writeable drive. If that means anything. I always have to config the artgalry first to get into clip gallery 3.0. Help me if you can or lead me in some direction for help. --
  • 3. Preventing Edit of Graphics in Word Document
    I have a Word 2003 document with pictures of Excel graphs in the document. We are not sure if we're sending the native Word document or a PDF'd version to the client. In any case, I'd like to prevent any editing of the tables and figures within the document. How would I go about doing that?
  • 4. Mysterious exploding diagram
    I have a Visio diagram in a Word document. When I view the page on screen or in print preview, it looks normal. However, when I print it, it's as if the diagram has been exploded 10000%. I see just the upper left hand corner of the diagram, maybe 1% of the entire thing. Any insight into what's happening? If I paste the diagram into a new document, the same thing happens. I'm using Word 2000 SP-3 on a W2K system.
  • 5. Word template downloads upside down and I can't rotate it
    I am trying to download a word template for a Christmas card face. It downloads upside down and won't let me select or edit it to rotate it.

Excel link distorted when updated in word

Postby Ashley via OfficeKB.com » Sat, 02 Jul 2005 10:33:51 GMT

I have a word document with an excel link.  Whenever I open the word document
the link is updated and the excel link (picture) is distorted.  When I go to
format object/size and change the image back to the size it originally was,
it just changes and becomes distorted again the next time the link is updated.
There does not seem to be a way to get the size formatting to stick in Word.
I don't understand why this happens, the size is correct in Excel.  I have
spent hours on this.  If anyone could help me I would really appreciate it!
THANK YOU!!!!!

Which of the PasteSpecial options did you use when you pasted the Excel 
object into Word?

I figured it out!  You have to download February 29, 2005 hotfix for excel.
There are some other things you have to do after you install the hotfix
(which I had to call microsoft for) but they should explain to you how to do
it. 

Thank you anyway!

4.Link between Word and Excel is not updating when Word document ope

I have been using Word and Excel for years.  I have Office XP SBE.  Until 
recently I have been able to link an Excel document with a Word document.  If 
I opened the Word document after the linked Excel document was changed, the 
changes would be reflected in the Word document.  If I double clicked on a 
link in Word and went into Excel and made changes those changes would be in 
Word when I went back to it.  For the last couple of months however the links 
have not automatically updated.  I have checked all my settings and cannot 
find anything wrong.

Any ideas?
