I tried

mysheett.Cells(10, 10) = My.Resources.ResourceManager.GetObject("Logo1")


mysheett.OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.Image.1", Link:=False, _
DisplayAsIcon:=False, Left:=471.75, Top:=31.5, Width:=293.25, Height _
.Image1.Object.Picture = My.Resources.ResourceManager.GetObject("Logo1")

I found one link which walks though inserting an picture in a specific cell, and the related code. The only downside I see is the api assumes the file will be saved in the filesystem, and not sent as a stream object link you are attempting to do.

Thanks, but the path must be my folder resources project.
Nobody knows how to do.

The tricky way to do it is save the resource file to the local users temp folder, then do the insert from that file location, and delete it when you are done. So the master copy will always be in your install binary. But copies will be saved to the drive long enough to be read by the api call.

Complex solution, sorry for the link
I must understand how to use images from the resources folder
