Add external images into and Excel report

Goal: insert country flags into an Excel report. This solution works also with HTML reports, not only with Office reports.


  • Create a folder and insert all flag images into it.
  • Use the values of the QlikView country field as file names.


  • Create a text object in the QlikView document you want to use as data source.
  • Insert the formula ='C:\NPrintingTraining\Pictures\' & GetFieldSelections(Country) & '.bmp' (rather than 'C:\NP_Training\Pictures\' & GetFieldSelections(Country) & '.bmp') as the foreground text.
  • When a single country will be selected this text field will display the related flag. Save the QlikView document.


  • Create a Qlik NPrinting connection to the QlikView document or refresh the metadata cache if the connection was already present.
  • Create a new Excel report template as usual.
  • Add the table with the data as a level and drag and drop it into the template.
  • Add the new text object into the Images node and drag and drop it into the template.


Save the template and run a preview.
