Hello

I am creating an Excel picture quiz and I want it to automatically show a picture, that is sitting in another hidden sheet, when a specific word is flagged.

For example A1 could say either Wrong or Correct. I want to put a formula in A2 that says: if A1 says "Correct" then show the picture in the hidden sheet otherwise show nothing.

I want to do it using a formula rather than VBA as the quiz will end up going around the world and lots of people at home a wary of macros in a file.

I've tried naming the picture and referring to the name, tried to work out how to hyperlink to it, and looking through the Office help but all with no luck.

Hopefully someone has the solution please! Many thanks.
