The silly thing is that by default the settings for OLE objects are such that they might not plot. Here’s how: Have an excel spread sheet saved. That’s one of the reasons I avoid using OLE objects. Unfortunately your version of AutoCAD is too old to have the Table > DataLink feature that. The Object Inserted into AutoCAD is an OLE, and I can not get this to PLOT. I do know if you insert the Object as a TIFF or a JPEG it will Plot.

Are you printing to PDF use Adobe? Try inserting it is paper space instead. Why would the print preview show the image, why would it work on my inkjet, but then not print on my plotter? Today, the print preview looks right, and will print on my desk printer, but not on my plotter. I’ve copy and pasted an excel office page into an autocad drawing, as well as ‘inserted’ it as an OLE I had to mess around a bit to get an acceptable size using a window, but it is DONE!!!

OLE not plotting – CAD Forum discussion (EN)

If you are reading this, you are the resistance. What really has me stumped is I first tried this 10 days ago, and a drawing plottting fine. Could be the memory. Or will I need to defer to my IT guy who probably won’t have a clue?

Why are Images or OLE Object not Printing from AutoCAD?

Again, I appreciate your time. But when I re-opened the drawing, I can not get it to plot properly again.
