Thread: .gif image in a comment

    Question .gif image in a comment

    How can I insert a .gif image(s) into a comment (and it to be not a static background picture)?

    There appears to be no such of a way in default Excel. I can not program.
    If someone can help me it would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    *If you know of any add-ins that can make comments a little bit more high in functionality (especially in the question at hand), point me out to them. I wasn't successful in finding anything like that. I just happen to find comments very useful in bigger worksheets, where just rolling over one of the "million" cells can provide useful additional information, which otherwise would have been burried in a separate worksheet/document, and this making everything chaotic and tedious. Again any help would be appreciated! Best regards!

    Thank you very much for the step-by-step guide, but unfortunately the result is not an animated .gif - but how I've described it earlier a static background image (just the first frame of the animation is displayed). May be my wording was bad, English not good. Anyways, I want the image to be animated - like what the idea of the .gif format is. I forgot to mention that I am using Excel 2003, so may be this issue has already been resolved in newer versions. If this is the case, I apologize for wasting your time, help is appreciated though!
