Hello.

I'm using Excell 2003.

I have scanned 10 pictures to JPG format. Each below 200 kb

My sheet takes up only 250 kb when it's empty for pictures.

When I import the 10 scanned pictures I would expect the worksheet to grow

up to a little less than 2.5Mb.

Would'nt that be a fair assumption? Both MS-Word and PowerPoint does so.

However my worksheet grows to 29Mb. !!! Using gif and compressing the

pictures inside the document does not work with good result.

I want to be able to send the worksheet by email, and also work with it

without waiting to long each time I'm saving.

What can I do to make Excell behave reasonable here?

Best regards

Jan Preuthun

    • It showed up that the problem file was a mix of different Excel versions and

      languages etc. Saving it as an Excel 2003 version only, solved the problem

      completely. The guy next door helped me. Thank you.
