Oops! Watermark Is Possible In Excel

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Reader Ron Peterson, CPA, an accounting and systems manager with American Crystal Sugar Co. in Moorhead, Minnesota, called my attention to an error in last August’s issue. I said there was no convenient way to create a watermark in Excel. In fact, there is. It’s a little more obscure than in Word, but here are the steps: Click on File, Page Setup and Options .

In Excel 2003 this screen pops up with several buttons, one of which contains a watermark icon ( Copy ):

Click on that button to open the setup screen for the watermark, as shown in the following screenshot:

In earlier versions of Excel, clicking on Effects will produce a screen that has a watermark icon in the lower right corner.
