hi
pictures and other objects cannot be inserted into cells. objects "float" on 
top of the sheet. the closest you might get is to insert the picture into a 
comment.
see this site.

Thanks for your response.

How can I add a picture to my excel spreadsheet so that its center floats 
over a given cell? Be aware that my picture is stored in a table in Access. 
Excel should call this application and retrieve the picture.

Problems calculating a converted html table to Excel XP (2002)
I have a generated report off the web that must be converted into Excel. When the report comes up initially it is in a .asp format. I save the report off the web in HTML format. Then open excel, then go to file -> open and browse for the file that I just saved. The report opens fine with all data showing up as is. However when I try to go and calculate a column of numbers, the answer that I get is 0. So if I go and add up say this list of numbers which is : 5, 7, and 8. The sum should be 20. Instead I get 0 everytime. I have tried to format the cells to be numbers instead of gen...

Pivot Tables and Charts
Is there a way to make a table and then when i change the chart have it to where it does not turn around and change the table Create another pivot table, based on the first one.

End of table
I have several workbooks that were created by someone else. They all have one characteristic that I would like to change. When I create a worksheet, the Ctrl-End key combination jumps to the bottom of the table -- the lower right cell. If my table has 200 rows and 10 columns, Ctrl-End will jump to J200. In these worksheets, Ctlr-End jumps several hundred, and in some cases several thousand, rows beyond the last data cell. I have tried deleting the rows below the last data cell and deleting the cell contents, which appear empty. How can I find out why it is doing this and correct it? Curio...

Date and Time Table Modified
I have 4 forms used by managers to enter data. When they enter data, the data is saved in tables. I would like to include a date and time stamp so that I know when they entered each piece of new data. Do I need to have a field in my table to collect the date and time? How do I collect that in my form? Thanks!! Yes, you need to add a field to your table. In the form's BeforeUpdate event, put code to update that field. Assuming that you named the field LastUpdated and that you included the field in the form's RecordSource, the code would look something like: Private Sub Form_Bef...

Help with Populating StringMap table

My users requested that we replace the State/Province text box with a State drop-down list. Since this textbox appears in several places, and since the tools for populating and maintaining picklist are poor (to be generous), I decided to look into automating the process.
