Scribe Excel Insert Image Syntax

Recommended Posts

Bartek    0

Hi There,

First of all many thanks to creators for amaizng plugin.

What is the syntax for inserting images to excel?

ScribeDocWriteValue ( “addImage()”; image ; page ; x location ; y location ; height ; width ) 

Do not work for xlsx with error about invalid cell name (first parameter is function adn for excel it seams it is not recognized) for pdf works fine as in demo expample

I tried standard syntax for excel where first parameter is table cell and second is image in container but it do not insert the image.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Bart

Hi-

When you tried the standard syntax, ie ScribeDocWriteValue( cell ; image), did you get any errors? That is how you would add an image with Excel. The 'addImage()' format is just for PDFs. What version of Scribe are you using?

Hi, 

I did not get any error when using standard syntax.

The image was just not added to the excel file like rest of the data.

I use it for product card generation.

Name, desc, image and i am dinamicly generating table with related extra product fields with definitions defined in category(similar to online store).

Everything works great exept of image insertion.

I am using latest plugin version availible from downloads.

To be sure i also used excel file provided in examples, because i had same issues with files saved from excel as xlsx from ms office (Maybe language settings, no time to get dipper)

Thanks, Bart

Could you reproduce the issue and send your logs to support@360works.com? Locations for log files can be found here. You'll need to make sure Filemaker has not been restarted since the problem occurred.

      Hi I can not fiddle out how to make it work. I have tried several browsers with same result. We are using FM 12 server. I tried this file paths
      file:///C:/file.jpg
      C:/file.jpg
      file://localhost/C:/file.jpg
      and few others
       
      I'm using this code in the Web Viewer which is working fine in FM client but not in browser
      "data:text/html, <html> <head> <style type=text/css> " & table::style & " </style> </head> <body> <div class='thumb'> <span class='helper'></span><img class='thumb' src='" & table::ThumbnailPath & "'> </div> </body> </html>"  
      If it's caused by fact image is not present in web site folder as stated in document then my question is if it possible use unc network path in filename like file://///other_than_fmserver/networkpath/file.jpg. I wasn't successful either. 
      Any help appreciated
       
      Thank you

      So here's the tech involved:
      Microsoft SQL 2014 FileMaker Server 14 FileMaker Pro 15 IIS/PHP The project involves submitting information via web form into the SQL database and then viewing it in a FileMaker portal connected to the database via ODBC.  I've done this before, no big deal... except one feature that was thrown at me.
      Ability to submit images through the web portal and view them through FileMaker I've done image submittal via PHP before, but viewing them in FileMaker is a new one.  I've seen some stuff on converting the images to BASE64 then converting them back in a FileMaker container field, but the information was several years old and I'm checking to see if there was any more modern way to handle it; and if it still needs to be done that way, I need some clarification on how to accomplish this.

      Good afternoon everyone.
      I need to open a .xlsx file by pressing a button
      I have tried with a script, where I establish a variable
      $ filename = e: \ Works \ Josram \ Presup \ AAVSA \ slopes 345 7 Apr 14.xlsx
      And using the command "Send DDE Execute"
      The service name = "c: \ Program Files \ Microsoft Office \ Office16 \ Excel.exe"
      But when you run it, it just does nothing
      Can someone tell me that I'm doing wrong?
      I don't need to import o export a file. 
      I only need, when i click a button Excel runs and open the .xlsx file
      Thanks in advance
      regards
      Pedro

      FileMaker friends, could someone please teach me a new trick
      I'm building an interface for composing "counsel" documents with each sentence it's own related record
      Sometimes I need to move the portal rows around, like in my "Old McDonald" example
      I think they call this kind a thing a "custom search order" 
      Is it possible to "Drag and Drop"?  If not, no problem, how about a scripted button? 
      What would you do?

      When updating any 360works-plug-in it is deactivated after any update. Sometimes it does not even is replaced.
      I have created batch-scripts to shut off FileMaker and then remove any 360works-plug-in.
      After that my user(s) have to restart the application again and the new version of (any) 360works plug-in is installed correctly and activated automatically.
      I also use other plug-ins by Troi, Dacons en Goya simultaniously and these work perfectly fine and also will be updated and activated when a newer version is being installed. Only the 360works-plug-ins fail to update everytime.
      I use the script-step "Install plug-in file" so nothing exotic is done there.
      The problems occur on windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, 2008 and 2012. On the 32 and 64 bits versions (2012 - 64-bit only)
      Any suggestions or anyone else has the same trouble?
