[CLOSED]Images in Excel

Hi, thanks in advance for any help!
I have several reports that I am adding to an Excel document. There will be five total tabs, the first being a cover page, and the second will be a table of contents page, the last three will just be basic reports. I would like to add images to the cover page and table of contents, like logos/banners/etc. I am able to add the images with
"TYPE=HEADING,
IMAGE=IBFS:/WFC/Repository/Informatics/AppStudio/Header.jpg,
$"
but they are automatically placed in the top left corner and I cannot move them. I would like one image at the top, then text in the middle, and another image near the bottom. Is there a way to do this? Or a better way to do what I am trying to do? Still pretty new, thanks again for your help!

It´s a pain to handle images on excel nowadays.

I got it creating the report on HTMTABLE and then used !IBI.FIL to show it as a XLS.

Can you try this: http://www.informationbuilders...ers/EmbedImagesExcel

It seems ridiculously difficult to get an image into an Excel spreadsheet these days.

Thanks for all your help everyone. I ended up adding a heading and footing and then the images in the style.

TYPE=HEADING, IMAGE=IBFS:/WFC/Repository/Informatics/AppStudio/Header.jpg,
$

TYPE=FOOTING, IMAGE=IBFS:/WFC/Repository/Informatics/AppStudio/Footer.jpg,
$

This added the header to the top of the sheet and the footer on the bottom, both left justified. I had to add some blank lines to adjust the height of everything, but eventually got it to line up close to what I wanted. I never figured out how to place an image in a specific location but this will work for what I need.

I was able to get this to work with XLSX, not EXL2K, by adding

HEADING
" "

After the BY statements. You may need to add some extra blank lines
" "
" "
" "
to get it to line up the way you want.

TABLE FILE CAR
SUM
CAR.BODY.SALES
BY CAR.ORIGIN.COUNTRY
HEADING
" "
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEAD
ON TABLE SET ASNAMES ON
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
-* INCLUDE = IBFS:/EDA/UNICODE/_EDAHOME/ETC/endeflt.sty,
$
TYPE=HEADING,
IMAGE=IBFS:/WFC/Repository/vesir218/std_reports/dev/ford_logo.jpg,
$
ENDSTYLE
END

Still no image.

Image appers if I change output to PDF or XSLX.


How can I add a heading on the right of the image?
