Hi,

My first post here and it's got us scratching our heads. I even have an Excel guru in the office and this is one we have not seen.

On a worksheet, when zoomed out further than 40%, there is a text-based graphics
overlay on the worksheet. At 39% zoom or lower, it's there, at 40% or above, it's not there.

I've looked at backgrounds, headers, and a few other things without success. Does anyone know who this is done? I've included some screenshots below.

Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.

Wow, so either no one has seen this or this forum is to busy to get noticed? I'd find it hard to believe I stumped this forum on the first question!
Anyone have any ideas?

It might help if we could see your images.
All I see is an image telling you to update your account

That is because Photobucket is no longer free for 3rd party hosting and hasn't been for months, I would suggest looking at another site like Imgur if the OP insists on posting an image rather than an actual file.

There must be a macro or a formula somewhere in the worksheet that is controlling the effect. You will need to post that ... or your workbook (without confidential information) for review.
