sonmic,

It's worth noting that even if you position a picture in a cell it is not attached to that cell. The only way attach a picture to a cell is to insert a picture into a cell Comment. That can be done manually or by means of a simple macro like this:

Sub insert_pic_in_comment()
    Range("A1").AddComment
    Range("A1").Comment.Visible = True
    Range("A1").Comment.Text Text:="Sunset" & Chr(10) & ""
    Range("A1").Comment.Shape.Fill.UserPicture _
        "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Pictures\Sample Pictures\Sunset.jpg"
End Sub

Correct the path to the picture to suit your requirements.

Dear Sonmic,

If you go to the picture propertys
You should select MOVE AND SIZE WITH CELLS.

Then it will copy with the selected range..
You can not put it in a cell...

This should get you started.  Its not perfect and to the best of my understanding you can't insert into a picture  -  it will float, but you can put it at the top/left adjacencies...

Sub Tester()
Dim myPict As Picture

    With ActiveCell
        Set myPict = .Parent.Pictures.Insert("C:\Users\....\Pictures\Dbl click Here.jpg")
        myPict.Top = .Top
        myPict.Left = .Left
    End With

End Sub

Select the range around the picture, then copy/paste - I just did it and it worked.  at least manually.

Dear Patrick,

I did try it (Excel 2003) from the comment itself but did not succeed.

I did run the macro and to my supprise it was there.

Never to old to learn...


Kind regards

Eric,

It can be done manually too:
Right-click and Format Comment
Select the Colors and Lines tab
Click the Color: dropdown and choose Fill Effects... at the bottom
Switch to picture tab and choose your picture.
