I have a Word document with logos, text, etc. in color. Embedded within the document is an Excel table. The Excel table also has colors. When printed from Excel, the colors are as expected. Within Word, the embedded table's colors look fine.
When I print the Word document (or save as a PDF), the Word elements are correctly-colored, but the embedded Excel table is grayscale -- except where some of the word elements overlap the Excel table.
I've never experienced nor heard of such strange behaviour. I have tried recreating the Word document from scratch and re-embedding the Excel table, but this didn't solve the issue. I am at a loss.
