Subject: eps files into word2007

Hi,

I need to use some graphs created on MATLAB in my word
document. At the moment I'm using word 2007 because I need
some features that word 2003 do not have.
First I export MATLAB graphics into *.emf but the print
quality in word is very poor... Then I export into *.eps and
insert it into word. Therefore, I need to convert the *.doc
into *.pdf because eps needs a postscript printer. However,
when I do it, an error occurs and pdf file is not created.
I've tried with word 2003 and all went fine. This, I think
it is a eps/word2007 issue, but I don't know how to solve it.

Any idea to solve it? Either for using the eps files that
I've created or to insert MATLAB graphs (on another format
besides eps) in word without resulting in poor quality prints?
Thanks

Try using my officedoc submission:
http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/loadFile.do?objectId=15192

[file,status]=officedoc('myfile.doc','open','mode','append');
officedoc(file, 'write', 'title','My data', 'image',gcf);
officedoc(file, 'close');
