Embedding Image in Excel template bands for Reporting

I am using an Excel template for a report and there is a fixed image (logo) that I would like to repeat in each row of a band. So if I have 10 records, then I want the image repeated 10 times. I have inserted the image into a Cell in Excel in a name region for a band, but when the report runs, the image only appears once.

Does the Excel reporting library replicate the embedded images for each row in a band ?
How do I do this ?


I’ve created an issue for this.

As a workaround you may store the picture somewhere in the project. Then return it as FileDescriptor or as byte array in the band data and display it in the report using proper field formatter: ${image:<Width>x<Height>} or ${imageFileId:WxH}
