Topic: graphics get stretched or squished when PDFed from excel !

Hi guys, this problem has been driving me nuts for weeks and is gonna put me out of a job i swear!!!!!!

i cant get these pdfs to print properly from excel. i used to get freezing, no more of that. now i got them printing, and once in awhile i used to get them to print ok randomly. but the graphics towards the bottom of the page always get squished or stretched after the pdf is printed.

I am on WinXP using Office 2000, i have used acrobat 5.0, 5.05, and now 6.0 and have had this problem through all versions as far as I can remember. I have messed witht he conversion settings, tried Adobe PDF Maker, Adobe PDF, and Distiller, and have meddled withthe page size (giving it too much or too little). Messing with the page size has now gotten me to a point where on this particular document, it is no longer squishing, but only stretching a little bit.

Note that is only does this on the bottom of the pages! and the graphics that are more towards the bottom of the page. so weird!!

(In page setup, it is set to adjust page to 100% of size...just so you know there is no stretching going on there)

Has anyone encountered this problem or know how to fix it? I can upload a PDF somewhere if you want to see what i mean, but its just stretched looking graphics at the bottoms of the pages, (or squishing and getting cutoff)
