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.

I've created a workbook with three sheets. The first three

What I'd like to do, is set the workbook up so that if I

sheet one, a row will also be inserted, and referenced, in
the corresponding place on sheets 2 and 3. Does anyone
know how to do this?
Also, if no data is entered into a cell on sheet one, the

Chris Bre...Cell with large amount of data not showing all data
I'm running Excel 97. I have a cell with 358 words (1928 characters with
spaces). Word wrap is on for the cell. Only part of the text is displayed
even though the cell is big enough to show everything. If I make the cell
wider (wider than a page) more of the text shows but not everything. I tried
a new worksheet with the same text and had the same problem. Is this a known
issue with excel? Is there a solution?
Left to its own devices, excel will only show about 1000 characters in a cell.
