Hello

Does anyone have any experience using Metafiles with Microsoft Word 2004?

I'm trying to transfer charts from an app called SPSS (statistics package) into Word. I can cut and paste but Word either crashes when pasting or transfers what it calls a Metafile and presents a load of random symbols. It works fine on my Uni PC's with Office 2003 and it also works if i try to use Neo Office.

I prefer using Word so would like to get it working if anyone knows how (I know it's a specialist package but thought it was worth a try)

Thanks for any help

I am having the exact same problem. The only way around it I have found so far is to export the chart or graph as an HTML file, open that up, then copy and paste from there. There has to be an easier way! Can't anybody help?
