Displaying images in exported documents using relative path

Hello there!

I don’t know if you guys have some issues with images not appearing when exporting a document that contains a relative path for the image (./images/nameOfTheImage.jpg).

To make it works you have to save your image in specific folders.

Those folders are:

 

For PDF export from Web, save the image in your Intelligence Server machine in:

 <MSTR_HOME_FOLDER>/Intelligence Server/images

 For PDF export from Desktop, save the image in your local machine in:

 <install drive>:\Program Files\Desktop\images

For Flash export from Desktop, save the image in your local machine in:

<install drive>:\Program Files\CommonFiles\MicroStrategy\images

For Excel export from Web, save the image in your Intelligence Server machine in:

 <MSTR_HOME_FOLDER>/Intelligence Server/images 

 

For Excel export from Desktop, save the image in your local machine in:

 <install drive>:\Program Files\Desktop\images

 

After that, if you pretend to export to Excel file, you also have to change the behavior of the exportation in your document. You just have to:

For web: Go to Tools > Document Properties > Export and check “Embed images” option, like the image below:

For desktop: Go to File -> Page Setup -> Export and check “Embed images” option, like the image below:

Now, when you export your document using relative path, you will see your image there!

Hope it helps.

God bless you.
