Thank you for writing back with that information. Unfortunately, this cannot be done or shall I say, you have no further control as to how the header or the non-text part of your Excel file (images for instance even if they are not in the header) are rendered by your email program.
The main reason for this is because, the way you layout your images in your Excel is NOT how exactly your email program will render them when you choose to put the Excel content in the BODY of your email. When you layout your content professionally in Excel, Excel will embed those formatting codes in the Excel file. But these formatting codes are NOT THE SAME formatting codes that Outlook 2010 or even other email programs like Mozilla Thunderbird, can understand. Thus, as a result, images that are recognized by the email program are placed on top or at the bottom of the email body. The formatting that Excel uses to layout your images and other objects are known to Excel only, thus they are messed up when displayed by Outlook 2010.
Also, this is NOT a recommended approach to send out your professional proposal to customers because of the following reason:
- Layout in Excel will be messed up when embedded into the body of the email, just like exactly what you are experiencing now
- The rendering of your emails will be depended on HOW the customers open your email. If they open it in Outlook, then though the layout is messed up (like what you see), the customers can still see your email content. But with other methods of opening your email, like when using other email programs like Mozilla Thunderbird, AOL, Eudora Mail, or even web-browser based access like Gmail, the Excel part f the body can be non-recognizable since they will be converted to especial character or garbled text.
So I will still highly recommend sending your professional proposal as an attachment to ensure that they will need to open the attached file in Excel which will cause them to open beautifully.
I know that this is not the kind of answer that you want to hear and I hate to be the bearer of this bad news. But it will be unprofessional of me and unfair to you if I will not give you the correct answer to this very important scenario of yours.
