Include images in exported XLS?

Include images in exported XLS?

In a table view, I choose: Actions > Export List to File > Export List to XLS

This exports the table contents to an Excel file. However, if a table cell contains an image, only the image name - but not the image themselves - is exported.

I would like the images themselves to be exported to the XLS file. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Tom Margolis

Can you provide more details? Which table are you exporting and what does it contain? Do you want to export UI images, thumbnails or something else?

Thanks for your response. I am a Java developer asked to provide the functionality described, and placed in front of a browser-based Windchill UI and told what buttons to press. I can't tell you what table is being exported, but I attached a screenshot below:

The 'Name' column includes images of various sizes; currently, only the text names in that column are exported. I would like to know if there is a way to export include these images in an XLS export through the UI or if Java code must be written; and, if the latter, what are the primary relevant classes.

It is my understanding that Windchill does not export the columns which do not contain text such as Thumbnail Navigation, Document Format or Information. There could be a way to configure the export action to support this, but I am not a Windchill customizer, so I cannot say for sure. You could check the Windchill Customizer's Guide on www.ptc.com or consult the Winchill HelpCenter for more information.
