Microsoft Word/Watermarks in Tables


I have a table at the end of my newsletter showing the board of director and their titles.  I am trying to put our club's logo in this table only as a watermark.  I keep getting the watermark in the entire document.  I have established another section, but that still doesn't work.



The watermark idea is designed as a setting in the header or footer area, so would be in the entire document - you COULD insert a section break before the table, which would allow you to have a seperate footer, though you would have to set the header/footer NOT to be the same as previous, but I think you would be fighting to get the graphic in the right place.  Instead format it to have the right effects (I'd use recolour and washout) then send BEHIND text and position it where you want.
