Php – Adding Image to the Excel in phpexcel in php


I am taking the example from phpexcel

I just tried with passing value in GET Method, I am done with that.

Now i am trying to add image in the a3 coloumn.

Reference Code :

$value = $_GET['value'];
ini_set('display_errors', TRUE);
ini_set('display_startup_errors', TRUE);

if (PHP_SAPI == 'cli')
    die('This example should only be run from a Web Browser');

require_once dirname(__FILE__) . '/Classes/PHPExcel.php';

$objPHPExcel = new PHPExcel();

$objPHPExcel->getProperties()->setCreator("Maarten Balliauw")
                             ->setLastModifiedBy("Maarten Balliauw")
                             ->setTitle("Office 2007 XLSX Test Document")
                             ->setSubject("Office 2007 XLSX Test Document")
                             ->setDescription("Test document for Office 2007 XLSX, generated using PHP classes.")
                             ->setKeywords("office 2007 openxml php")
                             ->setCategory("Test result file");

            ->setCellValue('A1', $value)
            ->setCellValue('B2', 'world!')
            ->setCellValue('C1', 'Hello')
            ->setCellValue('D2', 'world!');

            ->setCellValue('A4', 'Miscellaneous glyphs')
            ->setCellValue('A5', 'éàèùâêîôûëïüÿäöüç');

header ('Last-Modified: '.gmdate('D, d M Y H:i:s').' GMT'); // always modified
header ('Cache-Control: cache, must-revalidate'); // HTTP/1.1
header ('Pragma: public'); // HTTP/1.0

$objWriter = PHPExcel_IOFactory::createWriter($objPHPExcel, 'Excel5');

Example Code for inserting image :

$gdImage = imagecreatefromjpeg('images/officelogo.jpg');
// Add a drawing to the worksheetecho date('H:i:s') . " Add a drawing to the worksheet\n";
$objDrawing = new PHPExcel_Worksheet_MemoryDrawing();
$objDrawing->setName('Sample image');$objDrawing->setDescription('Sample image');
$objWriter = PHPExcel_IOFactory::createWriter($objPHPExcel, 'Excel2007');$objWriter->save(str_replace('.php', '.xlsx', __FILE__));

But i don't understanding how to insert the jpg in the a3 coloumn or any other coloumn in the excel file that i import.

How can i do this ?

Best Solution

Specifying coordinates for the image might help, as per the examples and the documentation


Note that an image isn't in a cell/column/row, but overlaid over the main sheet at the same position as that cell/column/row
