Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for writing back and I am glad that it is now working.In order to ensure that the footer is placed at the bottom of the page, please do the following:Open the file in ExcelEdit the Header and the FooterAt first, it should show you the Header, use Go To Footer command to go to the Footer areaWhen you are in the footer area, the bottom cell of the page MUST contain the footer. In your sample file, it appears that the footer is dragged at the top of the page. So click on the CENTER and bottom cell, then select the PICTURE command to add the picture in the footer.Here is my screen shot:http://filesxpress.com/d-58049ab8 Once you have that layout as shown in my screen shot, the picture shall then be contained in the center and bottom footer cell regardless if the image is showing at the top like my screen shot.I hope that helped.Please remember to rate my service positively (3-5 stars/faces) if this helped. Tips are always highly appreciated!If you need further assistance, please do not rate me negatively with 1 or 2 faces. Instead, please reply to me so that I can help you further.Thank you!Best regards,Jess

Hi Jess
I'm not quite understanding ... I go to VIEW - header and footer. once there I don't have a 'go to footer' command. just 'customize footer'. this gives me boxes for left, center, right. but I'm not sure what you are referring to 'bottom cell'. I don't know how to get to what you show in the screen shot.
