Hi, Im Senando Benig Jr, Just Sen for short, Im in manila Philippines,

My company start smartsheet from scratch and im the one assigned to develop an application.

I explore smartsheet for more than 1 year and i think im in advance now.

My concern is , is there anyway to vlookup and image? because when i try to vlookup it only display the file name of the image file. i think it is because there is no IMAGE data type on the smartsheet columns.

 

I hope for the response

    Wow, that's odd.

    Based on a Community post from earlier in the year, I spent some time trying to solve this exact problem (or rather, I was trying to solve that problem using this method). The best I could do was pull in the name of the image file. That led to a couple of ideas but with lower priority.

    I'll raise the priority and see when it pops back up on my list.

    Hello. I am rallying to have Smartsheets work on having the VLOOKUP command so allow you to import an image from one sheet into another. Currently it only imports the image name which is not useful.

    If this would help your workflow please submit a Product Enhancement Request via this link. The more requests, the higher on the to-do list this feature will become. 

    UTILISATION: I have one Smartsheet which is my 'inventory' list. I have another 'order' sheet on which I use VLOOKUP command so that when I enter the product code / SKU the rest of the product information will auto-fill. Once of my columns of information is an image and it would be useful for the image to also import. I am in the constrcution industry and we use this for our fixture, materials, appliance schedules. 

    I can see this functionality aiding a wide range of businesses - please let your voice be heard if this would help Smartsheets become more useful for your business!

    Thanks!

  • I needed too for inventory managment... 

  • Hi there,

    has anyone an update on if this is going to be implemented?

    Thanks in advance for the insight.
