Do you have any clue as to what excel code to use for printing
that object?

What I do with ScreenCapture has nothing to do with what you want to
do print-wise. IF YOU PUT A PAGE BREAK AFTER EACH IMAGE as I suggested
and use normal print process, individual pages will be printed ONE
IMAGE PER PAGE!

One has to GET the image first. At present i have no way to transfer
the fifth iobj as an image to anything, so it is moot.

Not understanding your meaning here; - if the image is already on a
worksheet then just follow its position with a PageBreak so the normal
printing process outputs 1 image per page. Isn't this what you want?

What is "follow its position"?
So far, there is no "normal printing process"; i do not know what
method or process or ... to use for printing.

Ok, assuming your image objects are on a worksheet and are oriented
top-to-bottom, the cell where the image object is inserted should also
contain a PageBreak so when you use Excel's Print process there will be
one image object per page. (You'll be able to see this in the PrintPreview
pane)

There is only one object and it spans/covers a goodly number of cells;
it was inserted from a file, and takes space like a chart.
Therefore, a page break will have no effect - that would be behind the
image/picture.
And there is no "PrintPreview pane", never ever seen one in 7 years.

Stupid mmmmmmmm... what code is needed to print a chart?
Perhaps i could fumble that to print either the object or the picture,
since those are the same image.

Thanks.


Can you copy the items in question, into another Office tool like
MSWD and via OLE (object linking and embedding), print them when
in a Word document ? I can't believe printing the items by
themselves is useful. You probably want those objects plus
some descriptive text, for a re-purposing project.

Another way to do it, would be to print the whole thing to
PDF, and use LibreOffice Draw to read in the PDF, then
edit it as graphics and delete the stuff not wanted in
the picture. (Office 2003 likely doesn't read PDF,
while LO today can a bit.) Again, a poor way to do it,
not likely to look the way you wanted. Modern Office can
read in PDF.

And as for the topic of screen shots, the largest screenshot
I can do here, is 16384x16384 (in Linux). It's possible to
do that by editing Xorg.conf. It's not all that stable and
useful. You have to change the background of the screen and
"write stuff on it", to tell you where you are. Navigation
at 16384x16384 is almost impossible. Windows had
that capability too, up to a point. I found a claim
recently that the mode is now no longer possible/allowed
in Windows 10. The last OS "that isn't in chains" is
Windows 7. Windows 10 has had capabilities nibbled off
the edges, making it less useful for hero experiments
('cause everyone really wants a SmartPhone, right?).
Windows 7 is the last OS where FRAPS will run (an all purpose
screen capture utility).

If he puts PageBreaks in the appropriate places so the normal Print process
outputs 1 object per page it will do as he desires! Not sure why noone is
getting this; - perhap's it's just too simple?

"Page Layout" "Page Setup" then small square with down/right arrow and
you will find PrintPreview

* Page breaks will not show in a chart because a chart is "in front" or
overlays cells.
Furthermore, a chart can take a rather large number of cells (C6..Q38).

inserted!

Again, you can't print a chart (or any other object) apart from its position on
the worksheet. *Excel only prints sheet contents in their respective location
on a sheet*

According to the Excel Object Browser, ChartObject does not have a Printout
method and so I suspect what's getting printed in your scenario is the range
the chart occupies on the sheet; - NOT the chart itself. Seems like a lot of
trouble to go to just to print a shape that will print in the normal process if
the PageSetup is done right!<g

Wrong in the context you requested; - you can NOT duplicate that in VBA
otherwise you'd be able to create code via the Macro Recorder!

Using VBA, since that is the context of this thread, you must specify the range
the chart resides in to include it in a printout. Ergo, why I use PageBreak at
each insertion cell to get one object (chart,picture,shape) printed per page.
(Assumes all objects are within defined Print_Area)
