Excel Headers - paste an object

New Contributor

I am trying to paste a company logo into an excel header so that I can create an invoice. I have copied the logo from word but the paste option is greyed out in excel header. Is it possible to do this?

A small workaround and you can use graphics in headers or footers:

Ribbon, Page Layout tab, click on the dialog arrow in the lower right corner of the Page Setup group.
In the dialog, open the Header / Footer tab and then click on User-defined Header ... (or Footer ...).
Now all you have to do is click the Insert Image icon and select the graphics file.
If you still have to scale the graphic file ...
In the View tab in the ribbon, switch to Page Layout.
Click in the text "& [graphic]" in the header or footer.
Now you can open the dialog of the same name in the Draft tab with the Format graphic button.

I'm using Office 365. I can open the dialog box for inserting image where I have 3 options: From file, Bing search and OneDrive.
None of the options work. Clicking on the 1st and 3rd option does nothing, entering any search term in to the bing search bar gives an error message.
