Missing Image when converting from HTML to EXCEL format

Hi,


I trying out a simple java program to convert HTML file into EXCEL format using Aspose.Cells API. The HTML file simply includes an image in a table. But the generated EXCEL file does not have the image in it as the HTML does when viewed in a web browser. Can someone have a look for me what went wrong? Thank you very much!

Attached is a zip file with the HTML file, the Java code, and the converted EXCEL file in it.

  • CELLSJAVA-41554 - Missing Image when converting from HTML to EXCEL format

Hi,

Before the issue is resolved, would you be able to suggest a workaround? I mean is there any change I can made into the HTML file that could make conversion to generate the image in excel fine? Thanks.

Hi,

I tried out the new API using the previous html file. But the image is still not shown. Different from last time, I got a box with text "This image cannot currently be displayed" in my excel file. It seems that the generated excel is referring an external source of the image which it could not find, rather than having the image embeded. Can you please embed the image into excel? Thanks.

Hi,


I have tested your scenario/ case a bit using latest version/fix: v8.6.1.6. Well, this is due to the fact that your underlying image in your HTML file is also not shown, see the screen shots taken when viewing your HTML in the browser or in MS Word:
http://prntscr.com/94349d
http://prntscr.com/9434eg

So, it is correct behavior and the output Excel file is fine, you may also confirm this by opening your template HTML file into Ms Excel and save it as MS Excel Workbook (.xlsx) file, you will see that the image is shown similar way (blank picture/box).

Thank you.

Hi,

On my pc, I have the image file put in the same folder as the html file, so the image does show on the html. But the converted xlsx file does not show image, as I described in the previous email. Can you please test again with a image (which I did not provide you in the orginal attachment). Thanks.

Hi,

I did some more testing with a different html. This time, the html was generated by aspose from an excel, and I tried to use aspose to convert it back to excel. If you look into the source of the attached html, you see the image reference as

and the converted excel does not show the image. But strangely, when I changed SRC to lowercase and became

Then I do get the image shown on the generated excel.

Furthermore , if I put src attribute after HEIGHT and WIDTH attributes, then I get the image regardless of the tag SRC being made lower case or upper case.

Can you please have a look at that too. Thanks.

P.S. please save the attached txt file as html file. I changed it to txt so that I can upload it.

Hi,


Thanks for providing further details.

Well, Aspose.Cells follows MS Excel standards and specifications when rendering or importing HTML files. Aspose.Cells supports to import and render rather MS Excel oriented HTMLs (these are not conventional/common HTML files). Could you check your issue by manually opening your template HTML file into MS Excel if you see the image fine there, and then save it as MS Excel Workbook (.xlsx) file. If you see different results in MS Excel than what is shown by Aspose.Cells, kindly do provide us a simple template HTML and image file etc., we will check it soon.

Thank you.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as CELLSJAVA-41554) have been fixed in this update.
