Default Insert PDF from MapPoint into Excel or Word

Hi... I recently learned Microsoft MapPoint software. I converted a MapPoint
image into a PDF using GeoPrint software that I installed this morning. Next
I inserted this PDF into Excel or Word. My problem is that the PDFs inserted
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 image?
PLEASE HELP!!

I need a sharp PDF to insert into Excel or Word for a sharp printed image of
professional standard.

Default Insert PDF from MapPoint into Excel or 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.

Cheers

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.

Default Insert PDF from MapPoint into Excel or Word

Hi... I actually got the answer today and wow... did I really over complicate
things yesterday.
All I had to do was right click the map legend to copy it and paste it into
an Excel sheet. Then I went back to the map and there was a drop down menu
for copy map. So I copied the map and pasted it next to the map legend on
the excel spreadsheet. Then I just set the image landscape and fit the
graphics to one page. And it looked great. So here is the answer. It
really was very simple. No pdf was required.
Happy mapping.
