Image Not Found - Dynamically Linked Via Excel Follow

I have used an Excel spreadsheet with Bartender v9 before
to dynamically link images to a label and it worked great. The picture object
allowed me to specify the file extension.

 

In Bartender 2016 Automation edition, this no longer works.

 

a) Can't find the option to specify the image extension in the picture object.

 

b) If the image file name with extension (as a field in Excel) is specified,
Bartender will state that the image does not exist when it prints the label.

 

If the image is embedded using the same file name and path it works.

 

Tried on local PC (WIN 10) and network paths, both don’t work.

 

Please help.

I am also having this same issue.  Version 10 accepted a path from a database field (Ex:  \\servername\images\123456.JPG ) as the image source and worked fine.  The new 2016 update will not and insists the image is not found even though specifying the same file name directly will print the image.

FYI.  Our database field contained the entire path to the image.  All images are held in the same network folder so we changed the image properties to have the default path to the image location ( \\servername\images\ ) and loaded the filename only ( 123456.JPG ) into the database field.  Now we have images again.

 

It sucks that I had to go through and change the processes that feed the database and also change each label style to have the image location set but we are back to printing correctly again.
