[SOLVED] Excel template with Excel custom header

Hi all,

I have created an Excel mht file with a jpg in the custom header.

Would this prevent me from using the mht file as a template?

Thanks,

Dave

Dave,

When WebFOCUS writes output to an Excel template, it overwrites anything that exists in the targeted worksheet, including graphics, formatting (including page settings) etc.

If you want to have graphics in your output then either use VBA to place it upon opening the workbook or use WebFOCUS styling.
