Excel - Adding and "Hiding" a picture

  AFoxyLady 21:35 06 Aug 2006

I know there is a way to insert a picture into a cell or comment in excel, so that when you hover over the cell the picture is shown.

I am trying to set up a list for suppliers with stock codes prices, and pictures of stock.

Can anyone help at all?

Many thanks

3. Click on Format_Comment

4. Click on Colors and Lines Tab

5. Then from the Fill | Color DropDown, click on Fill_Effects

6. Click on the Picture Tab

7. Click on Select_Picture

8. Navigate to select your picture, select it

9. OK your way out

10. Voila! ... Picture in your Comment Box
