Want to have a Cell in Excel, that will display a (JPEG)
picture, if another cell is greater than 1

If(A3>1,\\server\art\picture.jpg,"nothing to display"

I need help to perform this functionally.

Worksheet functions can only return values to their calling cells. They
can't affect formatting or objects.

You could do something like this with an Event Macro. If A3 is a
calculated value, for instance:

Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
Const PIC As String = "\\server\art\pictue.jpg"
Static myPic As Picture
If myPic Is Nothing Then
Set myPic = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert(PIC)
With myPic
.Top = 100
.Left = 100
.Width = 200
.Height = 200
End With
End If
myPic.Visible = (Range("A3").Value > 1)
End Sub

Put this in the Worksheet Code module (right-click on the worksheet tab
and paste the code in the window that opens).
