Exporting spot color graphics from Illustrator to Pagemaker - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I have a logo that I have created in Illustrator. Page layouts are in Pagemaker. I am trying to export the graphics as a Tiff and place in Pagemaker so they can be printed as spot color. When I print separations in Pagemaker the logo does not separate out. Should I export as a tiff? Illustrator automatically converts to CMYK. So How can I get my two color logo created in Illustrator to separate out to the two PMS colors in Pagemaker?...

    Why convert to a rasterized format? Just save as EPS and Place in PM

    I'm trying to print separations on an ink jet printer as a preflight to going to press. But tiff nor eps separates out. And eps does not print very nicely on an ink jet.

    Use spot colour swatchis in the Illustrator file. The swatches, if properly defined, will show up in PageMaker. They might not have the same name as the swatches you are already using, so delete the existing swatches and replace them with the Illustrator ones. Print test separations to your laser printer to amke sure all is hinky.
