    I have created my artwork logo for my company and created it's own special size especially for spreadsheet quotations (200mm wide 50mm high). I don't understand why I bother creating specific sized artwork for specific applications when each time I import it slightly changes as it's showing up in excel at 19.97cm :confused:
    Also excel cuts the end off my logo, as you see it's a ruler and the markings are starting from 10mm as opposed to 0mm. I previously changed the margins etc and it all gets complicated. I would like the logo to fit in my document any ideas what to do?

    It looks good when actually running in excel, then 'print preview' shows the text on the sheet to the left or right but the logo is still the same (being cropped). This is a mysterious little problem

    In Word you have to control+click on the image and choose 'format picture'. It has a similar habit of scaling images oddly. Maybe those settings are in Excel? Never tried it.

    Hi Dal

    As said above, check that your image isn't being re-sized by excel.

    Double click on it and this box should appear:

    Make sure it's at 100%

    You've probably got to fiddle with the document margins or use the header as well, to allow you to get it edge to edge etc. I don't use Excel much though, so that's pretty much all the advice I've got to offer ...
