When you insert a Microsoft Excel Worksheet in a Word document, the worksheet cells may be too large and the worksheet may not fit on the page.


This problem occurs when the standard font size in Microsoft Excel has been changed to a large font size.


To correct this problem, change the standard font size in Microsoft Excel to a smaller size before you insert the Excel worksheet. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Start Microsoft Excel.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  3. On the General tab, change the Size box to 10.
  4. Click OK.
  5. On the File menu, click Exit to quit Microsoft Excel.

NOTE: If you have an existing Microsoft Excel Worksheet embedded in a Word document that is experiencing this problem, changing the standard font size in Microsoft Excel will not affect the worksheet. To resolve this problem, you must delete the existing worksheet in your Word document and then insert a new one after you make the changes in Microsoft Excel.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
