Copying and pasting an Auto Shape from PowerPoint 2003 to Word 200

When copying a circular Auto Shape from a PowerPoint flow chart into a Word 
document using Office 2003 the paste into Word 2003 elongates that small Auto 
Shape into an oval roughly 5-6 inches in length.  Is there anyway to retain 
the shape's original size when pasting into Word?

It doesn't happen here.  Send me your PowerPoint file at 
dkr[atsymbol]mvps[dot]org and I will have a look at the issue.

Hope this helps.

Please reply to the newsgroup unless you wish to avail yourself of my
services on a paid consulting basis.

Word 2003 Header Problem
I've checked all the messages and cannot find the answer to this problem. Hopefully, someone here knows the answer! I need to create a unique header on page 2 of a multi-page document.

Publisher 2003 printing CMYK
In Publisher 2003 with the common drivers for my Printers it's not possible to print via Postscript II in CMYK. I followed a hint in the "help-menu" that advised me to use a special Postscript driver for all my printers located in the office program-dir. It's a special *.inf with which I reinstalled all printers. Now it's possible to print without an error, but now I cannot use the special features of the printers, because I use a common "default-driver" obviously. Is there a solution or am I doing something wrong? Regards, Jochen Demmer ...

Excel 2003 Array Formula in Excel 2007
Hello all, I am moving from Excel 2003 to Excel 2007. One problem I'm having is with the following array formula which works in 2003 but returns a #VALUE! in 2007.

Publisher to Word #2
Cetain things in created in publisher, such as Stationary or Fax Cover Page, would be very useful as a WORD document.
