Re: how can I show a specific image of an excel image database?

Hi @pracmt1515 ,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you store the images files within your Excel table?

Further, do you want to display the corresponding image based on a specific value?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned.

The data structure of my Excel table as below:3.JPG

My App's configuration as below:4.JPG

 

5.JPG

Set the Image property of the Image control to following:

LookUp(Table1, ProductName = TextInput1.Text, Image)

 

Firstly, please make sure that all your images data in your Excel table could be displayed well within your app. You could add a Gallery control within your app, set the Items property to your Excel table, add a Image control within the Gallery, set the Image property to following:

ThisItem.ImageColumn

check if the Image data displayed well in your Gallery.

 

Also please check if you have use a proper column within your Excel table to store the image data. Currently, within Excel table, if you want to store image data, you need to name the column as:

ColumnName [image]

More details about saving image data into a Excel table, please check the following article:

When you want to display images data from a Excel table, there are some notes you need to know:

Please take a try with above solution, check if the issue is solved.
