    Embedding Onedrive Images Directly into Excel

    Hi there.

    I am trying to embed images into excel using VBA code.

    I have some code which works fine for a direct link to a picture e.g. a .JPG on google

    However the photos in OneDrive have a guest access hyperlink like:


    The code i have does not work with a link of this format.

    How can i directly embed an image using a link like this in VBA?

    OneDrive for Business (ODfB) and SharePoint Online (SP) are related components of Office 365, with overlapping architecture and features. If you use both OneDrive and SharePoint at work, it can get a little confusing. This link explains the differences.

    What’s the Difference Between OneDrive and SharePoint?

    You may want to create a local drive reference to the version of cloud service you are using or if you already have a local drive then google how to give a guest access to it. Then use the local drive path in your VBA code.
    Surround your VBA code with CODE tags e.g.;
    [CODE]your VBA code here[/CODE]
    The # button in the forum editor will apply CODE tags around your selected text.
