Hello all,

I have a picture on a worksheet of a lego head labelled "lego_head".  I would like to select a range of cells and for all the cells within the chosen selection I would like to paste a copy of the lego head mentioned above.  I.e. If I select cells "B2:C4" I would expect to see 6 lego heads (one in each of the 6 cells).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Select your lego head, then run this code.

Sub copyPictureToRange()
Dim rg As Range, img As Shape, cl As Range, img2 As Shape

Set rg = Range("B2:C4")
Set img = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Selection.Name)

For Each cl In rg.Cells
    
    img.Copy
    ActiveSheet.Paste
    Set img2 = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Selection.Name)
    img2.Top = cl.Top
    img2.Left = cl.Left
    img2.Height = cl.Height
    If img2.Width > cl.Width Then img2.Width = cl.Width
    
Next cl

End Sub

Many thanks for the swift reply.  The only question I have is how easy is it to amend the code so teh range may be variable.  "B2:C4" was an example.  The user may choose "B2:D5".

I hope this makes sense? Many thanks.

This is only to support Thomas's solution.

Thomas chose to fix the target range and let the user select the picture. You can reverse this by changing line 5 (picture name instead of selection.name) and line 4 (selection.address instead of the given range in quotes)
