    Is there a way to add a watermark to an excel sheet? I know you can in Word but cant think of a way to do it in excel. The problem is that we have vendors who dont know the difference between an example template and the real deal so I need to figure out a way to get something in there that looks nice and professional. Thanks in advance for any help!

    You can use Word Art on the Drawing Toolbar from within Excel. Select the first type of Word Art, then select your font & size, etc. After it's on your worksheet, format the Word Art (you can right-click, or click on the WordArt toolbar)...on the Colors and Lines tab, choose No Line under lines, select a color, and check the semitransparent box.

    Hope this helps,

    Russell

    I cant get the No Line under lines in the Word Art format box to be available. I can do the semi-transparent check box but everything else on that dialog box is shaded and unable to be clicked on. I am probably doing something wrong! haha Thanks!

    Try this... file/page setup/options/select the effects tab
    You should find watermark options on the lower right.
    Hope that helps.

    It's probably the type of Word Art you are using. Try using the default (upper-left). Let me know if it works.

    Jack !

    I tried that a week ago... I'm not sure the background image prints out

    maybe I was missing something though, but I couldn't get it to print
