    Macro for inserting images

    I am running XP using Excel 2007. I have a spreadsheet with 10 worksheets -- each worksheet has anywhere from 10 to 80 one page reports. The top half of each page has a place for a jpg map to be inserted. There are a total of 334 images to be inserted.

    On each page there is a cell that has a "Key" number. That key number is also the name of the jpg. The process works like this:

    1. select the key
    2. move the cursor to the cell below
    3. go to insert picture, paste key
    4. insert picture
    5. select picture, edit picture by changing size to 50%
    6. move to the right 4 clicks and down 10 clicks (to center it)
    7. done

    I can record the macro ok. However, when I move to the next page and put select the cell with the next key, then the macro returns to the first cell where I started (and recorded from).

    When I recorded it with "Use Relative References" the recording only recorded the first 2 steps (1 and 2 above). None of the rest of the steps were recorded.

    Any ideas?

    Can you post a (sample) workbook, the code and an image file that you are working with.

    Regards

    I have tried to upload a 1.29mb zip file multiple times -- but I keep getting a database error.

    If you post an email address I'll email it to you.

    For some reason the macro that I recorded did not record each of the steps. I tried several times (which you will see in the attached file). I really do need help on this -- I just can't seem to figure it out.

    Maybe update your example to explain what it is supposed to do, then delete evrything that has nothing to do with your question and attach the workbook again.

    I found another approach that I am trying. I need a macro to look up the name of the file in column O and then look up the location to insert the file in column N, and then go to a folder and get the picture, and then insert the picture (resized) in the location in column C that is listed in column N and then repeat the process.

    I tried to adapt the previous macro that someone else posted, but I get this error when it runs:

    Run-time error '1004'
    Application-defined or object-defined error

    Here is the macro:

    I am sorry I missed adding the word "Code" at the beginning of the code. Thanks too for adding that. However, adding the word "Code" doesn't actually answer the question. Any possibility of addressing the issue itself?
