    Good Day Team

    Do you know if it is possible to place an image into a data item that is only addressed by an URL link?

    Any ideas on how this can b done?

    Kind regards

    Gavin

    I suspect you will have to save the image linked to via an URL locally before then loading it into a data item (probably using the old image manipulation utility object?
    Probably create an object that goes to the URL using a browser and use the save image functionality within the browser.

    That is how I would have done it quick and dirty years ago,  definately the way to go for anyone not comfortable creating code stages.

    If you are comfortable with .NET development do a google search for '.net load image from url' and you will find some code to modify into your own spanking new Image Load From URL action that you could create.

    Hi Denis, I thank you for your advice, sir. Much appreciated.

    I will definitely try that.
