Default Insert PDF from MapPoint into Excel or Word

Hi... At Excel and Word I hit INSERT, OBJECT and then clicked on the PDF file
I wanted inserted as a tab on an Excel workbook (or page in Word). This
worked. However the resolution was poor quality and there were lines that I
wanted off the page. It made for poor professional presentation quality.

I did use Presentation for map quality. PLEASE HELP! I've wasted lots of
time printing maps of poor quality in Excel and Word.

Hi chrissyb,

You can't insert PDFs directly into either Word or Excel, so what did you
actually do? For example:
Is the inserted file an encapsulated postscript file (*.eps)?
Did you open a PDF & copy a graphic then paste that into Word or Excel?
Did you insert a link to the PDF into Word or Excel?
When printing from MapPoint, did you use the 'Presentation' setting under
File|Print|Options|Map quality?

Another option to consider is saving the map as a web page, then inserting
the map image created by that process into Word or Excel.

into Excel and Word are coming out fuzzy and are not good resolution for a
professional presentation. Am I missing a critical step for a sharp


I need a sharp PDF to insert into Excel or Word for a sharp printed image
