APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Exporting a module containing a Visio OLE when Visio is
    installed on the machine effects the size of the OLE object in
    the resulting Word export. The OLE in the resulting Word export
    spans beyond the right margin. This is not the case if Visio is
    not installed on the machine.

    Visio objects can be too large for the page size in Word
    export.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Not really specific to Visio - just that the default OLE
    embed size for Visio is larger than that for other Office
    apps.
    
    A combination of issues - the size of the objects are not
    initially constrained by the visible column;  and large
    objects are not scaled down by the export process.
    Addressed both issues.
    

Temporary fix
