Print a Corporate Logo on Excel Spreadsheets

How can we put our corporate logo in the footer of all of our Excel 2000 spreadsheets? In Word, you can easily cut and paste a GIF or BMP image into the footer section. How can you do this in Excel?

Excel's help is painfully clear: "You cannot insert graphics...in a header or footer." You can, however, simulate a graphic-logo header. Put the graphic in the top-left cell, and size the top row's height to match. Choose Page Setup... from the File menu, click the Sheet tab, and enter $1:$1 in the Rows to repeat at top box. If your spreadsheet is laid out so the data is not wider than one page, that's all you need to do. If the data spills over into more columns than will fit on a page, you will need to invoke Print Preview and locate the vertical page breaks, then copy the graphic to the cell just to the right of each page break.

Once you get this arrangement to your liking, you may want to create a template containing the logo graphic and the Rows to repeat at top setting.
