View Full Version : Add a picture from the web using vba

When I run this code to add a picture in office 2007, I cant get excel vba to add a picture from the web. If it is a local picture this code works fine. It also seems to work fine on prior versions of office. Anyone run into this before?

Dim p As Object
Set p = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert("F:\myimage.jpg")

Hmm you might just need to fully declare your url. This works fine for me:Sub test()
Dim p As Excel.Picture
Set p = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert(_
End Sub
(Note you can dim as object too if you like, but there is no real need to do latebinding in this instance.)

Just out of curiosity, what version of office/excel are you trying this on? Your code and the one I posted earlier will work on anything but my laptop, which happens to be running Office 2007. I have tried using the macro recorder to see what office 2007 provides for code, but it does not provide any code when adding or changing images...

Works on 97 & 2003.

Anyone try it in office 2007, or know why it won't work in office 2007. Im running into a wall trying to figure out what I have to do. At this point I added a web browser control to show the picture. This does not seem like an efficient way to do it...
