Importing Images

Importing Images

  
Hi, 
I want to export data to an Entity. I can simply do it with "import data from Excel".
But what if my entity contains a binary field "Logo", where I want to sore a small image?
How to import this kind of data?

Thank you in advance

Hi Dmitry,

To import binary data from the excel I'm not sure if its even possible. From what I can see you could do it in a few ways:

1) You could have an additional column in your excel with the url for Image. and use the HttpRequestHandler extension to load the files.

2) You could have an additional column in your excel with the path for Image. (because the images are on the same server or acessible through the network) you could use the FileSystem extension to load the files.

3) You could have an additional column in your excel the base64 of the image and the use BinaryData extension to convert the base64 into binary.

Hope this helps

Cheers,
Guilherme
