    Post VLOOKUP to post a row of product information including a jpeg?

    Does anyone know of a way to use vlookup, or some other excel function, to use a designation code e.g. WD12 or keyword to post a row of pre filled cells (which give product information for quoting a manufactured item) into another sheet in the same document. The problem is that the row contains a jpeg file which is a graphic representation of the manufactured item, and we need that jpeg so that we can put it along with the row into the new sheet easily. That new sheet then becomes a schedule of items (a number of these rows pasted) that we give to clients after they order. The original sheet is then kind of a catalogue.

    Any ideas? Would be such a help if this was possible.

    Hey there,

    If you build a worksheet with all the VLOOKUPS pre-filled, then you should be able to just copy and paste the sheet and update the cell(s) driving the VLOOKUP. The picture portion might be the tricky part, but this should help in that regard:

    So basically I'd set up three worksheets in the file. One with your pictures, one with a table of all your product info, and then the sheet that you use to look up everything based on the product number.
