Hi Alison,

I didn't receive any replies to this post (or I must have missed them), 
so I don't have a solution yet.

Fortunately, I don't use Excel OLE objects often in Frame (only in 
tables where I need the Excel formulas). My current workaround is to 
select the black frame in the PDF file and delete it (using Acrobat 3D 8).
