is it possible to save an excel worksheet as a tif? or perhaps convert it to one?
 

Excel Facts

Round to nearest half hour?
Use =MROUND(A2,"0:30") to round to nearest half hour. Use =CEILING(A2,"0:30") to round to next half hour.

you could use the print screen button (while viewing your excel file) and then paste into any program that handles graghics and then save as ".tif"

I have done this before..there might be a better way but this has worked for me.

Screen capture is as old as Windows, but few people take advantage of it.

Pressing PrintScreen captures the whole screen, while the key combination Alt + PrintScreen stores the active window (useful if you're not running full screen)

Nothing seems to happen (i.e., no message). Launch a program that handles graphics, press CTRL-V (Paste) and your spreadsheet-- including tool bars, etc-- will appear. You may then wish to crop.

TIFFs can get quite large (hey, I remember the days of 100K floppies!). You may wish to consider converting to fewer colors (256) or grayscale. You could also convert to JPG, which can be read by a wide variety of programs, and will dramatically reduce the file size.

Have fun!

thanks, folks. i am aware of the screen dump option, i was just wondering if there was a built-in way to do it from excel, or maybe an external program that could be used.
thanks again! and if anyone else has a comment, please post!

You can use the free asap addin from http://www.asap-utilities.com
From the Export Menu you can save the selected range as an image. Works great!!

Roy - I have ASAP, and I had never noticed that option. How wonderful! Thanks so much for the suggestion!
