Picture / Image, behind data ????


    I have an image question.  In MS Word, you can set up 
a picture to be displayed behind text.  Why can't you do 
this in Excel.  I would love to have certain images behind 
cell data.  Is there a way to do this??????

Hi Chris, the only way I know is to have a picture 
displayed when you hover over the cell, as follows.

Select cell, right click and insert comment.
Right click on cell cross hatching and select format 
Color and Lines tab, select fill color drop down arrow.
Select fill effects at the bottom.
Select picture tab and on this box select picture will 
allow you to insert a picture of your choice.
Hope that this helps. I guess it depends on what you are 
trying to achieve...

Regards, Nick.

Adding additional data to a pivot chart
Hello, I am trying to add a line or some sort of note to a pivot chart and I'm wondering how to do it. I will have multiple items but the note only occurs on one date for each particular item. For example, let's say that I am keeping track of when I buy an item (month and year) and when I sell an item (month and year). I want to add some sort of note automatically to my pivot charts indicating when I put these items on sale (month and year). For example, maybe I put all RC Cars on sale May-01 and all airplanes on sale Oct-05. How can I get the sale date into my pivot chart? I&#...

Word should add image-count tool or property
MS Word should add an image-count function, either as a tool similar to Tools > Language > word count, or as an automatically generated statistic in document properties.

Image in a cell
Is it possible to place an image in a cell? If so, can you tell me how to do it? No. Images are placed in the Drawing Layer "above" the worksheet. Cells can contain formulae or data. If you size an image to exactly cover a cell, you can set the Move and Size with Cells property (right-click on the image, choose Format Picture/Properties and select the appropriate radio button) so that the image remains "on top" of the cell.

Pivot tables / source data
