    Animated graphics (XP)

    Any way to insert, say, a .gif into an excel spreadsheet and actually see it move?

    Thanks

    No, an animated .gif will display only the first frame when inserted into an Excel worksheet.

    The .gif I want to insert only has one frame and it just sits there - INanimate!

    If your .gif file has only one frame, it's not animated, so what would you expect? <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    Why do you keep expecting me to have a clue???? I get it - I'm the one who for years and years believed you could squeeze an electrical cord in two like a water hose and shut the electricity off -

    I see now (said the blind man) - a .gif, by it's very nature, is made of many frames, much like a cartoon -

    Sorry again
