Hi

  In my Excel VB.net add-in I am using the following code to retrieve an image from a SQL database
  and  copy it to to a picture box on a form. How do I alter the code to copy it direct to Excel?

  Private Sub Button4_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button4.Click
        Dim cn As SqlConnection

        cn = New SqlConnection
        cn.ConnectionString = My.Settings.CS

        Dim cmd As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand("Select Photo from Information where Name='b'")
        cmd.Connection = cn
        cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text

        cn.Open()

        Dim ImgStream As New IO.MemoryStream(CType(cmd.ExecuteScalar, Byte()))

        PictureBox1.Image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(ImgStream)

        ImgStream.Dispose()

        cmd.Connection.Close()
    End Sub

You can use the

Worksheet.Shapes.AddPicture

method but it takes file path so you would need to save the file to disk first (in a temp location)
