    Macro to pull multiple images from folder to multiple sheets by image/sheet name

    Hi and thanks for having me here!

    Unfortunately a series of google and forum searches hasn't been fruitful this time so below is my issue:


    I have a workbook that contains 230 sheets which are essentially forms that are pulling data from the first master sheet. Each sheet is named after a specific reference number.
    Now, I also have a folder that contains pictures that are named after the relevant reference number as well.

    I want to create a macro that will pull the relevant picture to the corresponding sheet. The macro can either read the sheet name or a cell inside each sheet (the ref no can be found inside the sheet too) to determine which photo to pull.

    All pictures are/will be resized to the exact dimension I need them to be and the cell will be exactly the same in every sheet.

    I have run into multiple problems, so I believe it's better not to bother you with what I have done so far.


    Thanks for any help in advance guys!

    On both, change references (Folder Name, Extension, Left, Top etc) where required.
    First macro is for same extension type files. In this case .jpg. Change to whatever is required.
    Second macro is for different extension types (jpg, jpeg, bmp etc).
    The folder cannot have non picture files in it.

    That worked great thanks!!

    I used the first macro and played around with Left and Top Values to have it bring them where I want it to.
    Could we slightly change that to ask it to insert it in a specific cell and resize/stretch it to fit inside it? That is going to be a big merged cell though.

    In any case I think I can work as it is right now and get my task done.

    Thanks so much
