Hi,
In 2004 I created a worksheet using Excel 97 or 2000. It is basically an A4 page of numbers and text. It has an Autoshape with the word DRAFT written diagonally.
I cannot remember how I did this and I cannot figure out how to do it in Excel 365.
Does anyone have any ideas?

I can copy and paste this one to new sheets and change the text.
However today I've lost some functionality
I cannot change the font size, or the transparency.
Have I done something to lock these functions?

Thanks in advance for your help with this

Best Regards
Pat

Thank you Excel Max. Amazingly that gives the same result.

Not how it was originally done but it's a solution. Thanks
