Adding graphic to report template in Act! 6.0

I am trying to create a report template with our company logo on it.  However when I try to copy and paste the logo into the act report template, paste is grayed out.  The logo is a bitmap image.

Can the logo be pasted into other apps, like a Word document?  May be an issue with your Windows Clipboard.  Also, images can only be pasted on the background portion of the report template.

I am able to paste the image into a word doc, publisher, or my desktop.  Also at home I have Act 10, and I can insert the image into a report template.  However at work we have act 6.0 and I just cannot paste the image into a report template.

The ACT! 6 reports did not directly support using graphic images in the report template. You might want to try creating a text field and then paste a bitmap image into the text box. It might work.

This one is from memory but if you open the image in MSPAINT highlight all and copy you should then be able to open the report and paste it in usin CTRL V.

Thanks that worked.  Do you know why you can paste from Mspaint, but not from other programs??
