I'm trying to use a picture that's stored within a spreadsheet in a User Form. I know how to reference pictures as files on User Forms, but in this case I want the Excel file to be self contained so I don't have to ship the picture file seperately.

If I have Picture_1 in Sheet3 how would I call this to load into my image placeholder on the User Form_Initialize?

Sorry if this is really simple but it's baffling me!

Cheers

Pete

How is the picture stored in the worksheet? If it's in an ActiveX Image control, then you can simply assign the Picture property from one to the other; if not, then you need a lot of API code.

Hi Rory - very prompt as always!

At the moment it's just a pic inserted into the worksheet from a jpg file. Is there something I need to do to make it available without a lot of code?

If you add an image control to the worksheet, then load your picture into that, it is much easier to pass it to the image control on the userform. Mind you, you could also just load it into the userform directly unless you need to switch images?

Sometimes you just need someone to state the obvious and it clicks. Thanks Rory!  I just loaded it into the form and that solved it. I was going wrong because I was thinking I had to load the image every time the form was called. Not true!
