VBA LoadPicture with .PNG files

I need to load a .PNG file as a logo to an Excel UserForm using LoadPicture. .JPG files seem to be fine.

Please where am I going wrong?

You're not - LoadPicture does not recognise png files. You'll need to use a different format if possible.

Hi Norman,

the png file format is the one to use, but VBA's standard LoadPicture function is unable to load png files. pls check the attachment ..this download contains a VBA module which uses the GDI+ Windows API to provide a LoadPictureGDI function. You can include this module in any of your VBA projects and use LoadPictureGDI(filename) instead of LoadPicture(filename) to load most image formats (including png) as an IPicture object. By doing that, you can use full-fidelity transparent images in your RibbonX callbacks.
