Watermark and Background in Excel worksheets

Funny thing about Excel backgrounds – You’d think that

Page Layout > Background

would apply a background image to the worksheet. It does and it doesn’t. It does display the graphic on-screen but not when you print. I think.

If you want a washed out watermark, what you need to do is to

  1. go to Page Header (or Page Footer?) section boxes.
  2. Insert Picture
  3. Format Picture > Picture > (Image Control) > Color > Washout

Done.
