Hello all,

I am having a problem getting an animated GIF to work in my worksheet.

This is what I have done so far, I open a new worksheet highlight some cells and merge so I can insert the
Next I select -INSERT/PICTURE from file navigate to the file and insert. The picture appears where I have selected to insert, but the GIF animation doesn't work.

Is there something else I need to do? :thumbsup:

Any help would be appreciated.

as far as I know...you can't just place an animated gif into a spreadsheet without the help of a browser control (.dll) or something like activeX to help out....a lot of folks like to put animation on userforms and such, but they have to rely on these other tools, and package them with the spreadsheet when they ship it off to users.

Of course, I could be wrong...there's a first time for everything :thumbsup:
