When running VLOOKUP how to bring over the URL value into (this is to bring over a picture on a cell

I am running VLOOKUP to bring a picture located in a specific row cell over a new sheet cell. The issue is that picture comes as a text (picture name).

My ultimate goal is to pull that picture into a dashboard, when trying that, just the text comes

If I bring picture directly from the smart sheet where picture is located over my dashboard, no problem, image comes along. But not through VLOOKUP

Any ideas?

    Hi @Gilberto

    Unfortunately, at the moment, Smartsheet doesn't have the capability to pull an image stored in a cell from one sheet to another. So, whether you try a VLOOKUP or INDEX/MATCH, it doesn't pick up the value. You can pull the image to another sheet only by way of a cell link, which is similar to what happens when you use the metric widget to pick up the cell's data.
