Financial statements in Word


Do all auditors insist on clients producing financial statements in Word?

Mine do and I really don't see the point as I can and do produce perfectly good financial accounts using Excel utilising the exact same data as my management accounts. I then have to produce Word versions of what I already have in Excel. Seems pointless to me.

Anyway this year there is no way round the issue. I have been instructed to keep the auditors happy. Has anyone developed a slick way of of creating Word Finacial Accounts from a version in Excel?
