Smile Get image path from content control field - NO VBA possible

Hello all!

My goal is to get the source path for an image from an content control field without using VBA, in this respect it is not possible for me to use VBA, because the file would be a *.docm

To explain it better...

1) in the content control field I get for instance the image link


(https\\sharepoint.com\image.jpg)
2) this link should become the source path of an image that is already in the word file
3) without using VBA

I don't know if that's possible without VBA (in which it would be very simple). I searched already for one hour and found no solution on the internet that would be somehow feasible for me...
I played around if "IncludeImage" however, I couldn't manage it to solve my problem with that

Thanks a lot helping a Word-brother out

Cheers


Thomas

You can use VBA with docx files, too, by putting the code in the document's template...

Hello Paul

Thank you so much for replying me, however I've no idea how to do it apparently. When I save the code in the *.dotx the code is not there anymore in the *.docx.

Can you explain further, if you are so kind?

Kind regards

Thomas

You would need to save the template in the .dotm (macro-enabled) format - then re-attach any existing documents you want to use the macro with to that template. Any new documents created from the dotm template will still default to the docx format, but they'll have full access to any macros in the dotm template..
