Microsoft Word/Printing in Word


Good Morning,

I am copy and pasted a chart from excel into word however when trying to print it appears that there is a blank object over top of it. I have changed the text wrapping and formatted it. It shows up in print preview however I cannot seem to get it to print. Can you PLEASE help?
Thank you

I would GUESS that possibly the document is set not to print drawing objects - from help
Drawing objects   Prints all drawing objects. If you clear this check box, Word prints a blank box in place of each drawing object.

you didn't specify the version of Word so I cannot give direct instructions to resolve this - but do let me know if you need help with it.  Additionally, I'm happy to look at the document if you think that might help - my direct email being
