Hi there,

I have a spreadsheet that uses the same image repeatedly (for aesthetical purposes) but it is adding to the file size with each instance of the graphic.

Is it possible to have the file stored in an external location and link to that file so that it still appears as if they are embedded in the spreadsheet?

Many Thanks,
Scott.

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

Not that I could conceive of, no...

Can you play with the image's format or specifications to reduce its size? :)

Or have one copy of it in the Workbook and copy/paste/delete it as needed with Excel Event procedures...
