    How get pictures to show up in excel export

    Asked by tomlee41 on May 08, 2014 at 11:24 AM

    Hiya, loving your system. Just need to know if it is possible to have the image fields put the actual image inside the exported Excel form. 

    We are using yours system for registering our staff and we need the image to show up in the excel as well as their details taken from the form.

    Sorry but they are not generated as images when you export your form submissions to excel. Simply because images will take a lot of memory and CPU usage and it may cause too much delay on the process. It might also add an excessive load on the server during its runtime which can cause lags and delays. However, file URLs are included on the excel report so you can still download the image and attach it on the excel report if you want to. Or, you might want to consider using HTML Table report or Grid Listing as it has the capability of displaying the uploaded images.
