Link to a Picture from a static excel table

Hello community,


I have a gallery in my app that has to be able to display a picture, if there is a picture defined for that specific item.


I would like to use a static excel table, because my list has really A LOT of items and I am concerned it will go higher way than the limit of 500 and because I don't wanna to rely on internet connectivity to load this list. I really prefer here a static excel file despite of a file in OneDrive.


Currently, the column of my table from where the image is read is written as: "Help-Picture[image]"

Each cell of the file that contains a picture is written as for example: ".\media\help-pictures\ah-ga-foto1.jpg"


It works, but only if I choose "OneDrive for Business" as a connector.


How do I make it work for the connector "Import from Excel" ?


Thanks a lot for the support!
