    Rotate Picture or clipart (office 2000)

    Hi,
    How do I rotate an inserted picture or clipart? The Rotate tool on the Drawing toolbar is greyed out.

    Thanks!

    AFAIK in XL97 and XL2000 you can rotate AUTOSHAPES but not pictures or clipart.

    You can upgrade to a newer version, or you can (or have someone else) open the file in a later version, rotate it, and then save it and use it in XL2000.

    Make sure that the picture is selected (you should see small circles at the corners and at the midpoints of the edged). You should then see the green rotate handle.

    If not, is your sheet protected?

    Added later: Steve's reply indicates that this feature may not be available in Office 2000 (I'm using XP aka 2002). Sorry for the confusion.

    Ah! I think Steve is right. I thought I was losing my mind. I have newer versions at home and could do it.
    I guess I'll have to take the project home to work on it and then bring it back.

    Thank you both!

    Hans, what a great picture! Some place in the neighborhood?

    Thanks again.

    If you rotate the picture 180 degrees, the bridge may make a good frame for a new house. Just my <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Are you growing webs between your 12 fingers? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I've got the world wide web at my fingertips, I don't need webs between my fingers!
