I am having an issue with embedded Excel tables in Word in

Customer Question

Good morning. I am having an issue with embedded Excel tables in Word in Office 2013. When financial statements are printed, the text in the tables gets distorted unless you manually update the link by right clicking. I have encountered the same issue in Office 2007 and was able to resolve it by adding the QFE_Boston key to the registry. However this fix does not work for Office 2013. Do you have any ideas on how make the tables print correctly? Thanks

Thanks for the feedback..Have you tried repairing the Office installation (via Programs & Features > Microsoft Office > Change in the Windows Control Panel)?

The files I am working with are files I have successfully printed without issue in the past in Office 2007. Now printing the same documents in Office 2013 I get the distortion in the fonts. This happens on multiple machines, consistently. It used to happen in Office 2007 until I found the fix I posted with my original question. Now it is happening in Office 2013

I have scoured the internet and keep finding the same solution, add QFE_Boston to the correct place in the registry. This fix does not work for Office 2013 but apparently does for all previous versions including Office 2010

And you have disable add-ins in both Excel and Word.

Click File menu, click Options > Add-in, click Go button in the Manage: Com-in Add.

Check if there is any add-in; clear the checkbox to disable it.

I have disabled all add-ins as one of my troubleshooting steps. From what I've read, this has been a known issue in MS Office since at least Office 2003. Adding in the registry key resolved the issue until Office 2013. Now it does not
