    Background Image (Excel 2000)

    Good morning

    I would like to insert a background image into a worksheet in which I have hidden all unused cells to the right and below the part I want to have showing. When I use the insert background command I see only a portion of the background that I want as it is too large. I have tried highlighting the area I want to use the background in but that is still no good. Is there anyway to achieve this please?

    Thanks

    Stephen

    Excel offers no control over the size of the picture. You will have to resize it in a graphics application (for example IrfanView) to the size you need before using it in Excel.

    Please keep in mind that the background image will only be displayed on-screen. It will not be printed with the worksheet.
