    Angry Problem sending object/picture behind print in excel

    Hi I am new to the site and hope someone can help me.
    I run a club which requires a new program each week which I create. I used ti have excel 2000 and had no trouble doing what I need to do in this 2007 version.
    I have created my page and want to add a picture in the background under the printing.
    I have tried clicking on the 'bring to front' and 'bring tp back' in the tool bar but nothing happens. I know it must be capable of doing this because I used to do it in the older version with ease.
    Please please can someone give me a step be step method befor e I send myself nuts. Regards and thanks

    Having some difficulty here too, but using Excel 2003 if you click on the chart to highlight the corners and then right click within the border, you should get the option to "move to back" or "move to front". I don't have a spreadsheet to hand with text behind it to try but I guess that would work. Do ensure you right click the border as from the body of the chart the options are different.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Trangie lad,

    I've had good luck in the past by formatting the picture to layout in front of text -I think 2000 did that automatically, and that's why I don't 2007.

    Hey,
    Thanks buddy, I have no problem placing a picture on the layout but I want it to become the background behind the print, something I could do with the older version. My question is why do they have the option for sending it back behind print on the tool bar if it doesnt work, very frustration ole mate. Thanks Pasdena have a nice day
