    Red X (Excel 2002)

    Hi

    I have the company logo inserted into my spreadsheet but it keeps showing a red x in the corner which usually indicates that a picture is missing. I get it in word as well.
    Is there a way I can prevent this please.

    NB sorry the the example is not very good, but I think you can get my drift,

    The "red X" usually means that a picture is not available or cannot be displayed. Your screenshot does show a logo, however. Do you have two pictures on top of each other?
    What kind of file is the logo? Did you just paste it, or paste special as a link?

    I'm afraid I don't know what causes this. If you like, you can attach an otherwise blank workbook with a logo, but I can't guarantee anything.

    My guess is that your original picture file contains the red X, what does the picture file look like if you open in it in a graphics application?

    Hi

    The origional picture does not contain the red x , I have checked this out , the curious thing is that sometimes it dissappears, and as I said this sometimes happens in word aswell.

    Just a stab in the dark here, but maybe this article is of significance:
