As soon as I ask this question, you will all immediately see what "application" I have in mind.

I want to imbed a form, e.g., a Federal 1040, text-as-graphic, that will appear behind my Excel spreadsheet such that when I print the form it will appear "filled out" with the spreadsheet values.

Any form can be scanned in MS Word and used to create a "watermark" that will appear (not washed-out) behind the user's text. The user can then position text over the watermark such that when the document is printed the result is a filled-out form. I want to do the same thing in Excel.
I don't want to recreate the form 1040 -- I want to scan a real 1040 in and use it as a graphic.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)
