Can you insert a picture into a specific cell?
Or do they only "float" on the page.
They float over the worksheet, but you can adjust the size so that it seems to
fit a cell exactly.
If you insert a picture, you can hold the alt-key down while you move/resize the
picture. When it gets close to the edge of a cell, it'll snap-to that edge.

...How to select series in chart?
I know I asked this question before, but (sigh) I cannot find the
answer now, when I need it of course.
How can I select a series in an Excel chart (XY Scatter) using the
keyboard, not the mouse?
The issue is: I have overlapping series, so it is difficult for me to
select a series by moving the mouse cursor to a point in one series and
right-clicking it, as I normally do.
Someone once mentioned a ctrl and/or shift key combination (I think)
that would allow me to select each series explicit in round-robin
fashion. That is what I am looking for again.
More generally, how could I have found...Linking a Chart with graphics to ppt

How do you create transparent areas in imbedded charts? (for Excel 2003).
When I click on "Format Chart area", then "Fill effects", there is a place
where you can change the transparency settings, but it is faded out and will
not work. Any Ideas?
You can make most elements totally transparent. Ignore the transparency
button, which is only for decoration. Instead, if you set an element's area
to none, the element will be transparent.

Message posted from http://www.ExcelForum.com
Couldn't you format the cell as mmmm dd, yyyy so that the user sees what date
they entered in a non-ambiguous manner right away?
Or maybe provide 3 inputs: Month, day, and year.
You could combine them elsewhere.
