    Custom Icon Pics (Excel 2002)

    Hi,
    Whe assigning a picture to a custom toolbar, there is a limited amount of pictures to choose. I can edit the picture or draw a new one, but there is no Browse Button to collect an *.ico image if you have icon images on your PC. Is there any other method to enable me to put a specific .ico image on a toolbar button?
    Tx
    Regards,
    Rudi

    There are free icon editors around which also ease finding icons on your HD.

    Once you have created an icon and saved it as *.ico on the HDD, how do you get it onto a toolbar button. Copy/Paste??? There is no browse button!
    Sorry if I sound dumb here.

    Copy the image to the clipboard in any image editor (for example the icon editor).
    In Excel, select Tools | Customize..., right-click the toolbar button and select Paste Button Image from the context menu.

    Thanx Jan Karel. This will be handy if I need to automate the procedure. For now... copy and paste will be good enough! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>
