    The only graphic that can appear behind the cells is the background image. This will be applied to the whole sheet with a tiled appearence.

    All other objects appear on a layer above the cells.

    If you want a "watermark" then you can use WordArt & VBA

    Don't know if this question has been answered elsewhere but I can't find one.
    After many wasted tries, I finally found how to get Pictures behind Text quite easily - simply create a TEXT BOX ('INSERT' , 'Text Box') and add your Text.
    This Text Box can be changed to suit ( Select, Right Click, 'Format Shape ) then set 'Fill / Transparency' to 100% and 'Line Color' to 'No Line'
    Then either Bring Text Box to Front, or Send Picture to Back. Works a treat and prints correctly.
