Default Excel print object?

When I modify/markup an image in Excel I take a ScreenCapture of it and
convert that to whatever image format I'm after. Since this is the only
contents on a worksheet, the normal Print processes work as expected for
printing the finished result.

Normally, I set the sheet up like graph paper and turn Gridlines off.

I have a loop around the basic generator to produce 200 patterns that
i want to save, and using a PDF printer to FILE: allows the computer to
do all of the work (like it should do).

Even for one pass, I cannot get it to print that object; so the
normal Print processes does NOT work properly; it prints the whole page.

Your last line indicates that you refer to sheets (like i said), not
an object/picture.

The For Each iobj loop selects the desired object(picture); how do i
complete the process to print it?
