Excel Backgrounds not exported with map

I have been working on a large map with parcels and sales information.

To help the client I have copied and pasted an excel sheet onto the map, this results in a graphic that can be resized etc. and behaves normally. The spreadsheet has a background fill in excel for the top row.

When  I export the map the background colour, blue, from the spreadsheet is not exported resulting in the white text getting lost. As a work around I created a rectangle from the drawing toolbar, made it blue and positioned it under the title bar of the spreadsheet graphic. This works out okay but isn't satisfactory.

Does anyone have a solution?
