    Is it possible to create a watermark in Excel? If so, can someone please let me know how?

    Thanks,

    However, one possibilty is to use Word.
    Create a watermark in Word and then, create a spreadsheet in word and stretch it over the watermark until you have the size of spreadsheet in Word.
    Then you can use it just like in Excel.
    Obviously there is a limit to the size or number of columns/rows, but it is a way round for presentation purposes.

    Can work you through that if needs be.

    Same for me - under Print Options go to Effects, then there's a section all about Watermarks.

    The Print Options you show StoryAngel, are options from your specific printer, not the Office application.

    Firefytr, I checked on three different printers and they showed me the same thing - so I must just be using Watermark-friendly printers! I take your point though - thanks for the correction.

    I am nuts. I knew there was a watermark option in Excel. Its called washout.

    Select the picture and then Select the Format menu, then select Picture

    In the fornat picture dialogue box select the picture tab and then click on the dropdown icon to the right of Color in the section headed Image control.
    In that list you should see Washout - select it and then click on OK.

    Take that back as you cannot type into the cells where the picture is.
