Hi Tom,

In 2009, you posted the following code in response to a question regarding inserting multiple pictures in Excel 2007. I am trying to insert multiple pictures in Excel 2010 but nothing happens when I run your code.Any suggestions you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sub ProcessFiles()

Dim sPath As String, s As String, r As Range

Dim shp As ShapeRange

Dim c As Range, cell As Range, sname As String

Dim p As Picture, diffwidth As Double, diffHeight As Double

sPath = "C:UsersPublicPicturesSample Pictures\"

If Right(sPath, 1) <> "\" Then sPath = sPath & "\"

Set r = Range("B2", Cells(Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp))

For Each cell In r

cell.Offset(0, 1).Select

Set c = cell.Offset(0, -1)

s = sPath & cell.Value & ".jpg" 'remove the .jpg if the cell contains the extension

sname = Dir(s)

If sname <> "" Then

Set p = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert(s)

Set shp = p.ShapeRange

diffwidth = c.Width - p.Width

If diffwidth > 0 Then

p.Left = c.Left + 0.5 * diffwidth

Else

p.Left = c.Left

End If

diffHeight = c.Height - p.Height

If diffHeight > 0 Then

p.Top = c.Top + 0.5 * diffHeight

Else

p.Top = c.Top

End If

End If

Next

End Sub

George,

I fixed the path (used the same as you)

Sub ProcessFiles()

Dim sPath As String, s As String, r As Range

Dim shp As ShapeRange

Dim c As Range, cell As Range, sname As String

Dim p As Picture, diffwidth As Double, diffHeight As Double

sPath = "C:\Users\Public\Pictures\Sample Pictures\"

If Right(sPath, 1) <> "\" Then sPath = sPath & "\"

Set r = Range("B2", Cells(Rows.Count, 2).End(xlUp))

For Each cell In r

cell.Offset(0, 1).Select

Set c = cell.Offset(0, -1)

s = sPath & cell.Value & ".jpg" 'remove the .jpg if the cell contains the extension

sname = Dir(s)

If sname <> "" Then

Set p = ActiveSheet.Pictures.Insert(s)

Set shp = p.ShapeRange

diffwidth = c.Width - p.Width

If diffwidth > 0 Then

p.Left = c.Left + 0.5 * diffwidth

Else

p.Left = c.Left

End If

diffHeight = c.Height - p.Height

If diffHeight > 0 Then

p.Top = c.Top + 0.5 * diffHeight

Else

p.Top = c.Top

End If

End If

Next

End Sub

put in five file names (with no extension) as seen in the picture

and it brought the pictures in - No Problem

hopefully the attached images will show success
