Hi again Eric,

You could have continued the tread you started before.

Tell us where you want each of the pictures. The first one you previously
gave me as B10 to C13 inclusive for position and size. What position and size
do you want each of these additional ones?

Try one by one as below....


'Get the locations
dblTop = Cells(10, "B").Top
dblLeft = Cells(10, "B").Left
dblHeight = Cells(14, "B").Top - Cells(10, "B").Top
dblWidth = Cells(10, "D").Left - Cells(10, "B").Left

'Insert picture
Set myPic = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert("C:\TempPic.JPG")

'Set location
With myPic
.ShapeRange.LockAspectRatio = msoFalse '/ msoTrue
.Top = dblTop
.Left = dblLeft
.Height = dblHeight
.Width = dblWidth
End With

Thank everyone very much for suggestions
I would like to know the (1) within .Pictures, does 1 represent 1 image to
be selected and deleted? If I have 3 images, then do I need to set (3) with
..Pictures to perform the Delete function?
Thank everyone very much for any suggestions
Eric

Set myPic = ActiveSheet.Pictures(1)

Hi again Eric,

I still don't know exactly how you want the pictures aligned (Horizontally
or vertically). The following code aligns them horizontally with one cell in
between. I have Used Range("B10") style addressing instead of Cells. Perhaps
you can understand that better.

All of the alignment and sizing is based on the Top and Left position of
cells.

I have created names for the shapes so they relate to the top left cell of
each picture. The pictures must be named at the time of inserting so that
they can be referred to again like when deleting. You cannot simply use the
Picture index like Picture(1) because that refers to the first picture on the
sheet irrespective of what it is. If you delete Picture(1) then what was
Picture(2) becomes Picture(1). Once named the name does not change and can be
used to reference the picture.

Dim myPic1 As Object
Dim myPic2 As Object
Dim myPic3 As Object
Dim dblTop As Double
Dim dblLeft As Double
Dim dblHeight As Double
Dim dblWidth As Double

On Error Resume Next
Set myPic1 = ActiveSheet.Pictures("PicAtB10")
Set myPic2 = ActiveSheet.Pictures("PicAtE10")
Set myPic3 = ActiveSheet.Pictures("PicAtH10")
On Error GoTo 0
If Not myPic1 Is Nothing Then myPic1.Delete
If Not myPic2 Is Nothing Then myPic2.Delete
If Not myPic3 Is Nothing Then myPic3.Delete

If Range("A1") = 1 Then
Set myPic1 = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert("C:\TempPic1.JPG")
Set myPic2 = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert("C:\TempPic3.JPG")
Set myPic3 = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert("C:\TempPic5.JPG")
Else
Set myPic1 = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert("C:\TempPic2.JPG")
Set myPic2 = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert("C:\TempPic4.JPG")
Set myPic3 = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert("C:\TempPic6.JPG")
End If

'Name and align myPic1 (Cells B10 to C13)

myPic1.Name = "PicAtB10"

dblTop = Range("B10").Top
dblLeft = Range("B10").Left

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to solve the triggering issue?
The value within cell A1 is calculated by formula, so I don't need to
manually press enter everytime to update this value, the question is the rest
of coding will not be performed without triggering cell A1, so does anyone
have any suggestions on how to trigger the rest of coding without manually
update the A1 cell's value?
Thank everyone very much for any suggestions
Eric

If Target.Address = "$A$1" Then
On Error Resume Next
Set myPic1 = ActiveSheet.Pictures("PicAtB10")
Set myPic2 = ActiveSheet.Pictures("PicAtE10")
Set myPic3 = ActiveSheet.Pictures("PicAtH10")
On Error GoTo 0
If Not myPic1 Is Nothing Then myPic1.Delete
If Not myPic2 Is Nothing Then myPic2.Delete
If Not myPic3 Is Nothing Then myPic3.Delete

hi Eric

perhaps you could make the formula in A1 volatile by adding and subtracting
NOW()

=your_formula+NOW()-NOW()
