The Problem is this: I have a Word File (with Logos etc. in Color) with an embeded Excel Table (Table also has colors), when I copy the Excel Table into Excel it selfs and print it is correct colored.

When I Print the Word File the Word-Things are correct colored but the Excel Table is black and white on the Paper, expect the Areas where some of the Logos (Word Things) overlap into the Excel Table.

I never had or have heard of such a strange behaveior, so i really don't know what to do i also have recreated the whole Word File from scratch still the same?!?!

It sounds like somewhere the document is made to think it's printing in black and white. Make sure in Excel that you did not select draft quality. Go to File | Page Setup. On the Sheet tab, make sure that "Black and white" (or "Draft quality") is not checked. Then try to embed the excel sheet again.

If this does not help, try to copy the content of your document into a new Word document but first make sure that you have a color printer selected by default in that document.

Draft/B&W i have tripple checked. And Point two is exactly what i meant by i made the same File new from scratch. According to many Forums i've read. I came to the conclusion that the new Office 2013 is still a bit buggy. Also if i print the Same File from another PC it works as expected. As far as i have prooved that it may be the Office installation on that One PC that causes the Problem. I'll do a fresh Office installation and let You know if that solved the Problem.
