I have been having an issue when printing to PDF from AutoCAD my Excel spreadsheets show up with gridlines that are not there in there Excel or CAD. I have tried a number of things to eliminate that lines (see list below) but nothing has worked so far. I am running AutoCAD 2012 and Excel 2003. I have inserted the spreadsheet using "Paste Special" so that I can continue to work on the spreadsheet in excel and it will update in CAD.
- I have changes the Plot Quality. In Monochrome the lines print. Low quality the spreadsheet does not show up. High quality again nothing shows up
- In Excel I have turned off the "Gridlines" and re-copied into AutoCAD. The lines still show up when printing to PDF
- If I paste as an AutoCAD Entity I can not update in Excel
Please let me know if you have any other ideas. I would really like to get this to work.
I had this issue in the past, and ended up setting the fill color in Excel to white instead of "No FIll."
sorry I was in a hurry... I copied the excel info, went to ACAD and selected 'paste special' then 'Paste Link', then used 'Microsoft Excel Worksheet' and it printed clean
