    Question Display Images in Cells

    Hello all,

    I am exporting text from another program into excel. Assume I can put any text into a cell. I have the file paths of images that I want to show on my worksheet in certain cells. Is there any combination of text that I can input into a cell that will actually display these images?

    The simpler the solution, the better.

    Thank you,

    Hello Steve,

    Welcome to the Forum!

    There is no built in worksheet function to do this. I have created a UDF (User Defined Function) that will take a picture (bmp, gif, or jpg format) from file,and place into a cell as a comment. This hides the picture until the the mouse enters the cell. This frees the cell up for other use.

    See if the ShowFilePicsDemo file, available at the below link, gives you any ideas:

    It reads pictures from network and web folders into an Excel worksheet.

    Does that help?
