Hi all,
I am looking for how I might go about embedding in Word (or excel, etc) the dynamic results from calling a "web service" that returns an image.

In other words, when you call this service (CGI) it returns an image
of "Content-type: image/png\n"

From within a web page - I can simply refer to the CGI script by using <img src =>  like so
<img src="../cgi-bin/test8.py" />

Which rns and returns the image.

However, I am at a loss for how I might accomplish this same thing, such that when a user refreshes a document, it makes the same call for this service to return a new/current image.

Any thoughts ?

Thanks !
