Hello Excel Experts.

I am using Excel 2007 for windows.

I have some cells where I want to insert both text and images.

What is the best method to do this.

Thanks!

You can't. You cannot put pictures "in" a cell, only "over" it. All pictures "float" on the worksheet. You can position a picture over a cell by setting its Top and Left properties to the Top and Left of the cell. Then you could insert text in any cell including directly above or beneath the picture.

Set p = ws.Pictures.Insert("C:\Sample.jpg")

Set objRng = ws.Range("A2:B5")
With p
   .Top = objRng.Top
   .Left = objRng.Left
   .Width = objRng.Width
   .Height = objRng.Height
End With

ws.Range("A1").Value = "myTop"
ws.Range("B6").Value = "myBottom"
