Text color in pasted ole objects

One of our standard practices is to copy/ paste schedules from EXCEL into CAD. The OLE objects paste with the text color set to whatever was set up in EXCEL. But for one user , his text always changes to blue in the copy paste process. We cannot figure out how to change it to match everyone elses. Is this a CAD setting or EXCEL setting. Has anyone heard of this ?

 

Thanks

Suspecting that it was not CAD issue , I had the IT department troubleshoot the problem. They found that the setting in Windows was changed so that all texts exported out would appear blue. We changed this setting and it is fixed!

In addition to the above so far... What exact method do you all use to paste the excel page? Watch the command line to see what commands are invoked.

Do the same test/observation at the user's station and see if tehre is another method being used.
