I'm editing a 150-page document on Word 2003. I inserted a graphic made with Visio 2003 (Visio 2003 Standard is installed locally).

When I try to print it, my graphic disappears and the only thing I see is the following:

Error - Incorrect object inserted.

Any idea what's wrong?

So Luke... any good idea? – r0ca Oct 17 '11 at 14:41
How are you adding the graphic? Copy and paste from Visio to Word? Or are you converting it to a JPEG or PNG or similar format? – Canadian Luke Oct 17 '11 at 16:27
I just copied and pasted it. I'll give it a shot – r0ca Oct 17 '11 at 17:54
And what type of printer are you using? PCL, GDI, PS? – Canadian Luke Oct 17 '11 at 18:29
