I posted several times the simple question:
How do I paste linked (not embedded!) pictures in Excel 2003, so that the
picture can be updated and visible in Excel. I don't want a hyperlink or an
icon to open the files.
Did Microsoft forget to enable OLE-functions in Excel 2003 for graphics? I
tried followings to paste a picture as a link, no success!
1) I copy the picture into system clipboard, but under paste special in
Excel "paste link" is not activated.
2) It's also not possible to link a picture file through: Insert/ Picture/
From file... which is possible in Word 2003.
3) Insert/ Object/ Create from file... doesn't show the picture but an icon
or an empty frame, although "display as icon" is not checked and it links the
file as "package" instead of picture
Will it be possible to paste and link a picture in Excel 2003 after
Thanks for an answer! I'm desperately waiting for a solution.
