Good morning all, I've seen a few posts on here but haven't found a situation similar. On Sheet1, I have a list of all employees. On a local drive I have a picture of all employees which I would like to hyperlink to the name...that's the easy part.
My userform has a combobox that's populated by RowSource "Employees", which is the name of the list of employees. Once the user selects a name, I would like the userform to automatically find that name in Sheet1 and display the photo that is hyperlinked to that name. I've never worked with an image in this way so I'm not even sure where to start, so any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated!

Hi,

Any reason to hyperlink the name ?

If the image name is similar to employee name you can directly use below code. Please test and confirm.
image1 is Image Control and ComboBox1 is Combo box used on user form.

VBA Code:
Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
    Dim imagePath As String
    imagePath = ThisWorkbook.Path & "\images\" & ComboBox1.Value & ".jpg"
    Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(imagePath)
End Sub

That worked perfectly. I was attempting the hyperlinks because it would be easier than renaming all of the photos. That said, there aren't THAT many photos, so a little extra work on the front end will make things much easier on the back end. Thank you!!
