I'm working with Libre Office on Windows 7 64-bit.
In Calc I used the formula
to produce an Hyperlink to a local Image based on the reference to B974.

Exporting to Excel with relative URL works.

Excel does not even know what an URL is. Excel uses Windows specific path names.

Name: MyPath (or something else)

Test with cell formula =MyPath should return the URL-path including a trailing slash.
