batch insert graphics into excel using VBA

Dear Experts:

I wonder whether the following is feasible using VBA

I got a product list with the following make-up

item-no    description       path                                               graphic
17-15        myproduct1        C:\test\myproduct1.tif                   graphic to be inserted
17-17        myproduct2        D:\myfolder\myproduct2.tif          graphic to be inserted
17-19        myproduct3        C:\test2\myproduct3.tif                 graphic to be inserted
etc.

The graphics are not located in just one folder but are scattered in many different folders.

I wonder somebody is able to come up with a VBA solution.

I know that this should be done using excel as a data source and doing a mailmerge using word. This works just great. I have worked with that approach dozens of times, but this time the requirement is to do this directly in Excel.

Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Since I suppose you live in Germany due to your name, living on the same time zone is an advantage for a timely response.
