Powerview card not displaying web images

    Question

  • Hi, I'm trying to display web images from Wikipedia on the Powerview Card control in Excel 2013, but certain symbols aren't being shown.  There are others that won't display - I just happened to have picked Apple as an example:

    Can you please advise?  the list is 500 companies in the Standard and Poor 500. The table of companies includes an Image URL column, which displays other company logos.

    thanks

    Dan

  • Hi Dan,

    When images are on an external site, Power View accesses the images anonymously, so the images must allow anonymous access.

    The most flexible way to manage links to the images is to create a calculated column to bring the image name and the URL to the location of the images on the external site. For the detailed steps, please see:
    Add images to Power View

    Hope this helps.
