    camera icon wont delete (XP 2002)

    Our website allows me to create a report on students including the photo taken on enrollment, which when put into Excel gives a well formatted list of names, courses, grades and other details. the picture does not show up, but there is a small icon like a camera in each cell of one column which cannot be removed. We tried deleting the column, cutting the cell contents, swearing at the screen and gazing blankly into space, but nothing shifted the icons - they immediatly reappear no matter what we do.
    I will try to attach a sample of the icon shortly if this is not easy to solve - we did have this problem before and fixed it but no one remembers how. TIA

    Thanks Hans - that worked perfectly.

    (maybe staring blankly into space works best while awaiting a response from the lounge)
