Adding A Logo or Image To A Spreadsheet Header/Footer
What This VBA Code Does
If you are using Headers or Footers for your spreadsheets, the chances are you’re going to want to incorporate your company’s logo. Using VBA code, you can automate this process.
First, you will need to save your logo file to a specific place on your computer. I recommend saving the file to your Add-ins folder or another location where there is little chance of you accidentally modifying or deleting either the folder or file name.
This macro works for one or multiple sheets selected.
Sub AddFooterHeaderImage() 'PURPOSE: Insert Image File into Spreadsheet Header or Footer on every selected worksheet 'SOURCE: www.TheSpreadsheetGuru.com/the-code-vault Dim sht As Worksheet Dim ImagePath As String Dim Validation As String 'Where is Image Located? ImagePath = "C:\Users\chris\Documents\Company Logo.png" 'Does the Image File Exist? On Error Resume Next Validation = Dir(ImagePath) On Error GoTo 0 If Validation = "" Then MsgBox "Could not locate the image file located here: " & ImagePath Exit Sub End If 'Add Image To Each Active Sheet For Each sht In ActiveWorkbook.Windows(1).SelectedSheets 'Insert Image (ie "LeftFooter","CenterFooter","RightFooter", _ "LeftHeader","CenterHeader","RightHeader") sht.PageSetup.LeftFooter = "&G" sht.PageSetup.LeftFooterPicture.Filename = ImagePath 'Ensure Pagebreaks don't show (they are annoying!) sht.DisplayPageBreaks = False Next sht End Sub
