Microsoft Office Questions? Ask a IT Expert for Support ASAP
I'm running Excel 2008 for Mac v 12.3.1. I have a file with photos embedded as comments that pop up when I hover my mouse over the frame. When I email this file the photos do not go with it. How do I attach photos that will email?
The process I used to embed is:
Format/Comment/Colors & Lines/Color: Fill Effects/Picture/Select Picture/Insert/Okay
Then I adjust the size to match the original.
Just for giggles I tried loading the file to a website. I then opened the file with my iPad to se if the photos were there, but they were not. They are only on my computer and won't transfer.
This issue may likely be fixed with a macro, however the problem here is that you're using Excel 2008 which is the only Excel version that does not support VBA macros. Are you planning to upgrade soon?
In any case you can attach your file here (or upload it at www.wikisend.com and send me the link) and I'll have a look
I just attached an Excel file with multiple photos attached in the manner I described. As to upgrading, I'm undecided. Seems there are more and more incompatibility problems with Microsoft products and Macintosh. I've used Microsoft for 15+ years and am comfortable with it, but need to see what else may be available out there designed for Mac.
Just found out my husband has 2011 on his computer. Will you walk me through the process of creating a macro in that version? I can email all the photos to him and recreate the document on his computer then email it from his computer to the folks that need the document.
There is no file attached!.
You need to send me the download link so I can download it
Odd, I attached a file using the link you provided. I will try again. I also learned there was a security halt on the credit card I gave you because they did not recognize you as a legitimate business. That stop has been lifted and you may now charge my card.
I tried uploading two different documents twice and kept receiving this error message:
We are sorry, but an error has occurred while uploading.
You can return to the start page and try again.
I will try again tomorrow.
You can also try one of these sites
Make sure you copy the download link that you'll get, and paste it in your reply here
Try this http://www.sendspace.com/file/d9ugq6
Or this smaller file http://ge.tt/6p9Wn5q/v/0?c
Did either file contain photos?
Yes the pictures are indeed embedded in the file. Here is a screenshot
The problem is most likely in your system. Try opening the file using another system (Mac or PC) and you should be able to see the pictures
Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions
Not my question. I can see the photos just fine on my computer. My question is how do I email that file to someone else and have the photos transfer so they can se them too?
Since I did not receive a solution for my question, I do not want my credit card charged.
I see. Just follow the same instructions that I gave you for uploading the file, i,e.
- Go to this site http://www.ge.tt/
- Upload the file then copy the download link that you'll get
- Finally compose your email message to the recipient then paste that download link in the email message
When they get the email and click that link they will be able to download the Excel file with the embedded pictures
Hope this helps. Thanks in advance for rating the answer positive so I get paid for my time
Not a Microsoft solution.
