I've not tried to run anything older than that. I am, however, experiencing a quirk or two with some macros (written using Excel 4 Macro language), but other than that it runs fine. -- Doug Starkey Network Administrator Pecan Deluxe Candy Company XXXX@XXXXX.COM (remove "NOSPAMPLEASE" to reply)

Excel Sheet Backgrounds

Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)

I am trying to add an image to a sheet as a background to make a comment pop-up tool. When I do Format -> Sheet -> Background it tiles it across the entire sheet. I only want the image in the first 32 rows and 24 columns. How do I do this?

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

It's not a perfect solution but you can try inserting the picture in the 
header (View/Header and Footer, Customize Header, Insert Picture). 
Format the picture to the size you want.

Other than Background (which can't be modified) and header/footers, 
pictures exist on the drawing layer, which exists above the cells, so 
you can insert the picture on the sheet (Insert/Picture...), and set 
transparency appropriately - the disadvantage, of course, is that you 
can't select cells "under" the picture.

Hi! <br><br>I have to modify an Excel spreadsheet which is provided to me. On Windows, part of the sheet is password prrotected so it never is modified.
