Copy Pictures Sheet to Sheet

Let's say you have two worksheets: (1) The first is a standard quote worksheet which would be sent to a customer. (2) The second is an assortment of product pictures, each picture named for the product it represents.

As an example, let's say a company sells 25 products. The second worksheet would have 25 pictures. When a quote is prepared, the user would select a product number from an Excel form. This product number would then be used to look up the picture in the "pictures" worksheet and copy it to the quote worksheet so that the customer sees a picture of the product.

For example, you might have a picture named "6710B" on the pictures worksheet. (You name the picture by entering the name in the same place you would enter a Range Name). This is also the product number that the customer orders. The following two examples show how to locate the picture by name in the pictures worksheet and copy it to the customer quote worksheet.

The first example uses the SELECT technique, which is a shorter method. The second method (for Excel purists) does not do any selection (except at the very end to deactivate the selected picture), and relies on object methods exclusively that don't use the SELECT method.
