VBA to insert picture into multiple worksheets relative to Print_area


New Member
Jun 14, 2013
I want to be able to insert a picture into each worksheet of a workbook, but I don't want the picture in a cell, I want it in a location relative to the Print_area (as the number of columns changes in each ws)
The picture can be the same size in each ws, but just needs to be located in the top right (with a small margin) of the ws.
And I need it to loop through all ws's with a defined Print_area
Is this at all possible?
All I can seem to find is to insert into a cell, which I don't think will work in this case, but am willing to be proven wrong!
Thanks all
